We've been to Zeytin's scores of times now. Love it! It's good for a romantic night out for two (though not quite the top notch if you Really wanted to impress her!), good for a catch up with friends or can cater for a large group. Lots of nooks and crannies to suit almost any group. Great food. Good variety.... More

I went to Zeytins with a group of about 30 people, and was extremely impressed with it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the meals came quickly which was impressive considering we were such a large group. The food was great and I really enjoyed the whole evening!

Just had dinner at Zeytin. Even though it's a long weekend the service was great and the food amazing. Even the children tried the dolmades and finished it. Definitely will be back

As vegetarians, we are always careful choosing a restaurant. Turkish cuisine was a safe bet. We heard good recommendations and went here. The place was full and bustling with people, often the best indicator of the food. The food was good, though I remember feeling it was a tad bit expensive for the overall experience.

A group of 9 of us on a week night, it seems as though they were short staffed with only 2 waitresses taking orders and one waiter delivering drinks and clearing plates. We did ask him for a drink at one stage but he could not do that and said the waitress would come back, which she did, after a... More
