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.

Had quite a good look and atmosphere but the food was a let down. Lacked flavour and was uninspiring to say the least

This Turkish Restaurant was actually closing down for the evening but agreed to accept us for dinner. Subsequently, a further 40 odd people, who also appeared to be returning from the MCG, were served dinner. Service was impeccable and full... More

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.
