We first turned up here to try dinner. It was a Thursday night and the noise from the clubs/bars next door/over the road was a real turn-off, so we went elsewhere. I was determined to try it though based on the Tripadvisor reviews, so we returned for lunch the next day. The food (mixed and veggie iskender) was excellent and... More

We had the chicken iskender and a lamb kebab, good was good, service was super speedy. Shop is small, but was empty when we went. Worth a visit if you like fresh, fast Turkish.

We were walking around sightseeing and doing simple shopping and dropped in for a quick bite. The man behind the counter was friendly, informative, and was quite helpful in our selection. It's a great place for a Gyro, but they called them kabobs here. Go for it!!

Thanks guys for the speedy tasty tucker, right price, and satisfies. I had been looking for somewhere that fed me healthy protein with plenty of vegetables, salad with a great taste and you provided it - so pleased I have been back a few times.

Extremely quick service, tasty food. The decor is a bit cramped, it's not a fine dining experience but a popular takeaway.

We ate in one night & found the situation was very basic. We would probably not recommend eating in but the food & service were excellent for this style of food. definitly worth a try for honest, tasty food.

The best Mediteranian food that I have ever tasted. I ordered the Iskender (rice) dishes which came with in huge portion but tasted so good it was cleaned up! Tried the coffee as well and it was like expresso but without overpowering bitterness or sourness. It was strong and the taste was just perfect.
