Great for groups....maybe not couples

I have visited this place a couple of times now and the food has been amazing both times and leaving me rather full. The first visit was for a friends birthday and was a great atmosphere while eating plus the bar upstairs can carry on the night with a good selection of drinks and live music. When I... read more

Always worth a visit especially for the lamb and the fillet lamb melts in your mouth. Plenty of space to have pre dinner drinks dinner and dancing afterwards. Tables over six not really welcome., which means a quieter enjoyment for the other diners

We went here for our 10th Wedding anniversary and I have to say I was curious to see what all the hype was about before we booked. Well I am so impressed with the quality of the food that we have booked to go again. The portions were massive and totally reasonably priced. I have never tasted such tender lamb... More

You always get what you order here, very good, easy food in a posh sitting. The venue is outstanding, even when you pull into the car park. The waiters are great, so is the old man, wouldn't say the lady and bodybuilder are tho! Never have we had to send any dish back, the food is spot on. The upstairs... More

Strange place! Food was remarkably good: mixed dips, kalamari cooked to look like tagliatelle, cheese & spinach pastries - great starters, but large portions. Mains were very well cooked kebabs (lamb, fish etc) served with a large salad. We also ordered lots of side dishes (against the advice of our waiter) - you don't need them as the portions are...

Don't bring the kids. This is the slick hip place to chow down on some lovely Turkish based dishes whilst listening to the cackles of the Essex Girls in the Bar. Surroundings are plush and luxurious - there's a homage to the Italian Job in the car park with a mini and a few gold bars on the passenger seat.... More

We went with a big table for a family members 60th birthday. We booked about two weeks in advance as it does get very busy. Unfortunately chikdren are not allowed although I can understand why as there is a lucky atmosphere with a bar and live singer (at weekends) upstairs. The food was delicious. The meat melted in my mouth.... More
