Great Drop In / Informal Dinner Option

A great last minute choice for lunch or dinner. Fast efficient service. Its a BYO so dint forget a bottle of your favourite if you plan to linger. Food is fresh and tasty and menu contains lots of authentic Turkish options. Finish off with fresh turkish delight!

Wow, best falafel wrap we have ever had; falafel was very flavourful, the veggies fresh and crispy, and the in house sauces are to die for, exspecially the beet sauce.

This is a great family run restaurant. Plenty of choices at reasonable cost and free corkage. Always busy because the food is consistent and delicious

And this was exactly what we got this is a nice airy restaurant with really friendly staff. It has great value options to choose from of turkish fast food.

This restaurant is good value. We had been on a previous visit to Napier and found it good so returned. The starters were delightful as were our mains. Nothing is expensive and is ever such good value. The waitresses are helpful and friendly. All good.

Napier is a fantastic place, but like many towns in NZ, Monday evenings can be...quiet. On this side of town, other than the Masonic, we could only find this restaurant open! We reserved a place on the day, but there were a few spare tables when we turned up. Very good food, and lots of it, authentically Turkish. The place... More

Really enjoyed this place, really laid back and relaxed. Amazingly good food and really friendly staff. Not the place to go if you're expecting waiters to be constantly attneding your every need. Bring your own wine/beers, no corkage, and enjoy some great food.

The food is wholesome and well cooked and genuine. The staff were nice and friendly. However, it was much more of a cafe than I had realised and we had forgotten to BYO. Water is given but never refilled. The portions are large and well presented in the cafe style. You leave feeling full but not necessarily satisfied but It's... More
