Visited on 25th April with Family. The menu was varied & informative to me a great help as I am not that familiar with this cuisine. I had the Kisir followed by the Kulbasti which was excellent and the Turkish Red House Wine was very acceptable. This is a relatively small family run... read more

I have visited many times which is testament to how good this family run restaurant is. For some reason my previous review has disappeared. I can recommend the lentil soup, garlic mushrooms, Turkish sausage, mixed grill, Kleftico, Guvek, and pretty much everything else on the menu. And what is it about their rice? Everyone is stunned by this simple but... More

My husband and I took clients mid week for an evening meal as we knew without doubt that we would receive excellent food and service. Again not disappointed. We paid approx £26.00 per head for a 3 course meal, 5 alcoholic and 2 soft drinks. We've been previously when they have had belly dancers - an evening not to miss.... More

We visited on Sunday afternoon for a late lunch. I was looking for something healthy and this hit the spot. I had the Mediterranean salad which was a generous portion size & my partner and chicken (shish?) I think. Quite a simple meal but does what it says on the tin and staff friendly.

Ate here recently on a Friday night and it was fairly empty, nice people running the place and good service. The meal was ok, nothing wow, they did forget part of the order which was surprising given how quiet it was, there's quite a bit more competition in Worthing these days and I think they'll need to up their game...

I met a group of friend here for a lunchtime meal. The quality of the food was very good, though I was rather disappointed with the size of the portions for the price. Most of the group would be happy to eat there again.

I have been coming here for some years when I need a place to meet up with local friends. The service is personal and excellent, Nothing is too much trouble. The food is predictable, but well cooked all the same and the portions were generous - rice and salad with most dishes and my chicken shashlik consisted of 6 huge... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. Unfortunately for them we were the only booking but then there were 13 of us so it was not a total waste of opening for them. Two courses for £9.95 is very good value. Portions were average size. Lamb meatballs are not meatballs but patties and are very tasty. Others had chicken... More
