Great little restaurant

Great food and good value (especially the early bird deals). Often busy so it's best to reserve a table. We are lucky to have Saray as a local restaurant.

I found this cosy atmosphere restaurant on tripadvisor and visited on tuesday. We had the early bird courses for £9.95, It was our first time and we enjoyed it very much, the food was delicious. on the other hand the service was great and the staff were very lovely and helpful on recommendations hence we will be back again.

I had intended to visit this restaurant for some time, having moved to Chorlton 7 months ago, and this was the first opportunity I had to go. I had also realised that I have never had Turkish food before, so was a good opportunity to try it. Had the lunch deal at £9.95 for 2 courses. Started with the mezze... More

I used to live on Harringay Green Lanes, which is basically the Turkish area of North London and boasts the finest and cheapest Turkish restaurants in Northern Europe. Saray, although not cheap, is great value and quality-wise it's up there with the best of them. The staff were friendly and attentive, the wine was good, and we'll be going back.

Everything about this place is perfect. The staff, the food! The English girl who served us last night was a lovely waitress who was very efficient and always had a smile to everyone she served. The other staff were also very lovely. Highly recommended, especially the special offer, 2 courses for £10. You can't complain about that! We'll definitely be... More

The restaurant is out of the city center, it took 30 minutes on the bus and 20 mins in a taxi at a cost of £13 but is well worth the travel. The staff were all friendly. The restaurant tastefully decorated. There was a 3 course offer for £11.95 available up to 7.30pm. The lamb balls and feta cheese pastries... More

Not the best Turkish restaurant in my experience. They lose points for not having Ayran (yoghurt drink), not offering any complementary fresh bread before meal or bread as part of the mixed grill, and for their smaller portions than others. Didn't leave satisfied or full. Usually I struggle to finish the whole meal.

I have been here several times - the food and service is amazing. Especially if you get there in time for their £9.99 deal - usually before 630pm (early bird offer) lots of food- great flavours - great value
