Food Coma

The food here is to die for! I have been to this restaurant twice in the last few months and it is definitely worth the drive from the gold coast. Portion sizes are very generous and great value for money, by the time I leave I'm in a food coma!

I have just left this restaurant and had to give this a great review as the service and food was superb. I had the koftas, mussels and salmon and would recommend this to anyone!

The only negative for this one is the huge wait time for our meals but it was worth it. Delicious, authentic and well priced the reputation for excellence is well deserved. A gluten free friend was treated well with staff knowing exactly what was in each dish. Efficient service and friendly enough staff that were unobtrusive. Lovely presentation of dishes.... More

We dined on. Friday evening.. The food and service were good. Clearly they have lots of large groups taking advantage of the BYO so they were very loud. With little in the way of sound absorbing or soft furnishings you could hardly hear yourself talk. It's such a shame. I'd like to go again on a quieter night - it's... More

Some restaurants state they serve a particular type of food but it never tastes authentic -well this place gets it right! I felt like we were back in Turkey on holiday again. It's not "fine dining" -it's real good honest turkish food, similar to the food we experienced in Turkey. And the serves are generous, suited to a typical Aussie... More

A delightful Turkish restaurant with great food and friendly staff. Shared the platter for two which provided a range of menu items to sample, all of which were excellent. A cozy atmosphere that is comfortable and welcoming - lingering over meals is encouraged in true Turkish style. Highly recommended.
