Everything about this restaurant is good

This restaurant is in a great location, facing onto the parklands at Southbank. Parking close by. The atmosphere is great, the service to our table of 12 was faultless and the food was impressive. Add to that the entertainment and a great night was had by all.

I'd heard that this restaurant was very good from one of my foodie friends. My husband and I really like Turkish food and had had a few mediocre dining experiences at Ahmets, nearby. We were at Southbank for a show and decided to have dinner locally.We walked a little further & were very grateful we did. The food was exceptional,... More

Went for dinner with friends and had a great night. We had no booking but were able to fit us in despite it looking like a busy Friday night. Food was great and service quick but waitress couldn't answer any of our questions about the menu. But she was charming enough and we are pretty laid back so it didn't... More

The food was pretty good value but the service was very slow. Most wait staff were friendly but we waited far too long for our food and drinks. We waited over 20mins after we order for our first drinks and we waited over an hour for mains.

This is an excellent Turkish Restaurant at South Bank. Food is really good and so is the service. They have belly dancers on the weekends from about 8 pm. Location is pretty good with very good ambience. We went there with the Entertainment Book voucher. Highly recomended.
