Healthy lunch overlooking the sea

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

Service at the restaurant was perfect could not fault them at all! Atmosphere in the place was very middle eastern which made the place very unique and makes you forget you are actually in Worthing! Price okay it is a little high me and the other half had to pay £45 and we only had 2 soft drinks. But other... More

Came here a few months ago and the service was really good! They have these little turkish/ middle eastern light shades coming down from the cielieng and all of them are different so makes it feel like you are in a turkish restaurant! Dislike going to restaurants who refurbish it and forget what country they're representing like Cardamon Bay of... More

We have just had a lovely late lunch here today. Service was so friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. We ordered meze and mixed grills which were so tasty and servings were huge. It makes such a change to go to a restaurant and find everything perfect - our first visit but definitely not our last.

Food is freshly cooked and delicious. Lovely atmosphere and good friendly service. One of a few restaurants in Worthing that serve superb vegetarian food rather than the usual unimaginative vegetarian choices. So saying, carnivores are also well served. Have been here many times and it never disappoints. Very good value.
