This hidden away gem serves fresh, home cooked traditional Turkish food. The cafe style restaurant had a basic look but the food is fantastic and very cheap. We went on a Saturday when they have a special house dish, there were six of us and we had a selection of dishes and every one was great. The dessert was lovely... More

Such a small venue allows you to be really looked after! The owner here is incredibly helpful and will help recommend dishes and such. Very good value and a lovely atmosphere.

A last minute choice of where to eat quite late on a Thursday evening and what a treat. We were presented with a delicious meze followed by wonderful mix of flavours in the mains. The added bonuses of good value & an extremely friendly owner made our evening spot on.

Had lovely meal for two on a Saturday evening. Small but nice, plain simple ambience. Friendly staff, I think husband and wife team, enthusiastic, keen to please but not overbearing. Simple small menu, excellent meze, then the one special which was fantastic slow cooked lamb, with vegetables and fluffy rice. Interesting cream/fruit/biscuit dessert rather like Cranachan. They had Turkish Efez... More

Called in for a quick meal one night - the food is delicious! I would definately recommend the mezze starter. The restaurant is small and quite basic - its extremely clean and tidy. Its not the place to go for a fancy dinner, but if you want a really tasty, reasonably priced meal - this is the place to go!

We called in here for a quick lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh and tasty; the service was quick and friendly without being over-attentive and the owner is just lovely. We felt really welcome and had a very relaxing meal The servings were not massive, so if you're hungry you may want to order a couple... More

Since living in Huddersfield the one thing I have missed is a decent Turkish kebab! My wait is over. The husband and wife combo offer delicious fresh Turkish food and are passionate that you enjoy their food. The food is well priced. I had the meze starter and shish kebab. Both were excellent . You can bring your own wine... More

We have eaten at the Istanbul several times & the food is always fresh, tasty and superbly cooked. This time we went with four friends & had mixed starters to share including grilled haloumi, humus, aubergine dip & a fish platter - all selected by the owner. We were not given a chance to select our main courses either although... More
