Great Authentic Turkish Food

Had a fantastc meal which was complimeted by the the service. Food was very fresh and extremely tasty. There is a wide variety on the menu to cater for all tastes. Would recommend without hestation. There is a separate area away from the eating area where you can even indulge in a Hookah.

it looks nice, but the service is slow, and the interior conditions are perfectiblle... Nice selection of ethnic food and a few drinks too. They are supposed to be the specialist for a Turkish coffee, it was really average.

This is not just another turkish eatry its beyond that, great ambiance close to breath taking river view and the food is marvelous. Do try the turkish breads with different yogurt dips and the sheesha is just there to set the mood right.

We were trully disappointed. There was 30+ of us and not one of us enjoyed it. The food was edible but definitely not restaurant standard. We got the banquet which was way overpriced for what you get.Not worth going at all. Staff was very nice and diligent though. I would never go back.

My friend and I went to Achelya on a Friday night, for an early dinner and to try the Shisha Pipes. After reading a few of the reviews, I initially thought we may be making a mistake going here, but no, we didn't. What we got was attentive service by the staff, a delicious meal, which we did not have... More

Had the lamb souvlaki which was very good but I didn’t not like the salad dressing. The apple tea is just a sad bag and didn’t taste like any apple tea I had in Turkey. The waiter didn’t speak great English so it was difficult to communicate but overall it was acceptable. The back area is a hookah bar (didn’t... More
