For Brits who like nothing more than cooked breakfasts, keeping up with UK football this place will be perfect. If you want something a little more Turkish you'll be disappointed. But that's true of most cafes /restaurants in Calis

It always looks quite popular in the evenings but it is one of the first restaurants you come to. I only went there for lunch and because I'd had a bad stomach I ordered baked potato with cheese. This turned out to be half a baked potato which I think had been re-cooked because it was very hard in parts.... More

We go often to Nil for two reasons. One the wide variety of food on offer and two the amazing customer service. Angel and her team do a wonderful job they make you feel like one of the family. It is full most nights so if you want to make sure you get a table i would recommend reserving.
