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.

We booked for 6.30 and when we arrived we were told we had to 'be out' by 8 We were then told by a rushed and rude hostess that if we didn't like that, we could sit outside and stay longer. What restaurant does that? Fortunately the wait staff redeemed our experience and were more customer focussed They sat us... More

I believe you are making a mistake with your review. Almost last 2 months we were never fully booked and we never tell our customers who has a booking what you have written on your review. I would feel the same if it happened to me. It might be an other restaurant with a similar name or similar cuisine. I... More

Only a short walk from Sebel South Brisbane. The food was excellent and the service was great. The food is served in a good way that you can sit and enjoy. You're not rushed.

The service was excellent, waitresses were always on hand to take drink orders / food orders. I've never eaten turkish food before, but it was fresh and delicious. The whole restaurant was then entertained by a beautiful belly-dancer.. very much an Arabian nights experience - loved it.

Very delicious turkish cuisine in the heart of the city. Don't miss bellydance show on Friday and Saturday. And try the best shisha in Brisbane! ;)

Had a good night at this restaurant. Even though it was mid week, there were still quite a few customers here. I think it would be very popular on a Friday and Saturday night. The meals were tasty enough but lacked a bit of unique flavour.
