can do better

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.

The four of us returned to The Docklands late at night from the MCG after watching the CWC 2015 Final.

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.

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.
