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

Came down from Perth and met few old friends. Decided to come here. I ordered the kufta (minced meat). I am not sure if the chef actually cooked it. It costed some odd $26. The plate was a tomato dish with 1 piece of the kufta. To cut it short, food was horrible. The staff were ok.

This restaurant was the only one open at the Docklands when we arrived Christmas Day. We ordered cold drinks and a light meal of 3 x dip and turkish bread plate to share between 6 (plenty). The food was delicious and just what we needed after our flight, service was great and staff were friendly.

First night in melbourne, location great, food poor, service poor. Would not go again. It left an awful taste in the mouth that was still there the next day.

Boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary on the suggestion of a friend. We had shisha (the smell of the place is incredible! And so sweet!), and the soup of the day (red lentil soup), and calamari. The soup was not over salty (as is a problem for most restaurants and pubs), but just right. And they leave you... More
