Have just read Cathy P's review. We were there the same night and were very disappointed. We had to ask for our mains and were told "not long." 15 minutes later they arrived. We were there for 90 minutes having had only an entree and a main. Didn't have time to wait for coffee or even the bill. (we actually... More

Have eaten here in the past, although a number of years ago. The decor is still fabulous. Sadly the food seems to have become a bit more generic with the more traditional turkish fare no longer dominating the menu. It was very busy, a number of large groups and while the staff were professional and friendly the wait for them... More

Great Turkish food in the West End. Try the Shish Kebap or the Borek. Ask for a seat out back for a great view.

Had a lovely dinner here on Sunday night. I had the spicy meatballs which was really delicious. For a Sunday evening the restaurant was really busy. The service was prompt and the staff friendly.

Our family of 3 dined at Caravanserai last night and it was FANTASTIC! We enjoyed the garlic butter pide and dip duo to begin, with the staff very happy to swap humus for tzatziki with the dips and was accompanied with plenty of bread to share. For mains we shared the Istanbul sublime for two, which was fresh, beautifully prepared... More

I had never been to this restaurant and visited one recent Friday night for my daughter's birthday. The banquet was fantastic, the food had clearly defined flavours coming through and the presentation and service was first class. This is a wonderful restaurant which is high on my to visit again list.

I visited this restaurant with a friend on a Wednesday night. There were still quite a few diners which gave it a really nice vibrant atmosphere. We shared the platter for 2 which had meatballs, haloumi, ribs, prawns and chicken skewers with rice, bread and beans. It was the perfect amount of food and allowed us to try a little... More
