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.

Dined here with 10 friends on a very busy Saturday night which we loved because we were surrounded by people having a good time. We had the banquet which was delicious and plentiful and being BYO it's such a bonus! I Will defiantly be back to try the platter for two and to try score a table on the veranda... More

We visited this restaurant with a group of 30 of our friends for dinner and was very disappointed. We all ordered the Sultans Banquet each however the food was no where near enough to feed all of us adequately. My husband and I left the restaurant feeling hungry and unsatisfied after spending $100.

6 of us who had all been to Turkey had a Saturday night get-together here on last day of November. It was very busy and noisy...we also had difficulty hearing each other as people already celebrating Christmas parties..some were over the top! But food and service was great for a full restaurant. We gave up about dessert and asked if... More

Had a great dinner here with close friends but just a bit too noisy and seats a bit close for my liking. Couldn't hear each other without shouting and kids (5, 9, 11) were quite overwhelmed by the drunk, staggering people near our table at 7:30 on a Friday night! Great to sit by the open door where at least... More
