Low key cafe selling great food. Lamb and Chicken Shish were great. No alcohol. Cafe itself was a bit on the cold side at night so rug up. Prices were around the $20-$25 mark. Staff were lovely. Let us take away left over dip and then provided additional bread at no cost.

I have been going to mavi for a while and lately I find the food has been cold and not as fresh as it used to be.

We shared 3 delicious, fresh dips for entree plus a large basket of turkish bread which was moreish. My main meal salmon dish, served with salads, was generous as was my husband's lamb meat balls.

At both locations (the Realm Precinct and Woden) I feel like I'm able to relive the cuisine I loved in Istanbul. Whether I go for take away or eat in everything I've tried so far has been delicious.

A bit pricey, but the servings are big and tasty. The cafe itself is ho-hum, so I would recommend take away. If you like turkish delight, buy it from Mavi, its delicious.

Mavi is a very popular lunch spot for me and my work collogues who work close by. The food is authentic and is always delightful with lots of flavour.

When it first opened mavi was awesome, but recent visits have been disappointing. Much ofthe food is preprepared before lunch and the professional finish of the food and service has slid down as they get busy and have a lot of new staff
