Both my daughter had Kuzu Beyti with side salad and I had Kleftiko which were both excellent and I must recommend the salad as superb. The food is of a high standard and the service and ambiance is... read more

Have been a few times and had a good experience every time. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly. All the food has been nice and tasty especially meze platter starter. Personally the dishes with pitta bread are not to my personal taste as would prefer it on the side not in the dish itself. At first I wondered... More

Taken by friends last night. Used a Groupon coupon for the meze ..... Great introduction to this restaurant. Vegetarian main course was very good. Been to Turkey three times and this was a real reminder of the tasty food encountered there. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be returning.

I spotted an offer on Groupon for a meze platter and drink for four, so I thought that would be something different as none of us have visited here before, we were very impressed, lovely food, good service and try the Turkish coffee!
