Went for a meal with my family. Very noisy, waiters rushing around and banging dishes down when serving. Food was hot and fresh but it was so noisy and hectic I couldnt enjoy it. The staff were very loud amongst each other too in their language. A group of men sitting on the table near us were talking inappropriately. This... More

Have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Food is cooked in front of you and is very fresh. Portions are huge - plenty of bread and salad with grilled food. Takeaways are equally good. Well worth a visit.

Simply a no-frills well presented family run Turkish/Kurdish 'Mangal' or 'Ocakbasi' in the fringes of Essex! All the grill food is freshly prepared and the Lahmacun (Turkish style thin pizza with minced lamb, peppers and onion) is brilliant. If I can't make it to North London for my fix then hopping down the road from where I am, Cemo is... More

Went yesterday for a family meal and was quite surprise of the excellent quality of food and service. The waitress was fantastic. I highly recommend this place for a relaxed evening.

I went here for dinner last week and was very happy with the service and quality of the food. One of the better restaurants in the area.

The food is exceptional and the staff make you feel like you're part of the family, or an honoured guest. But the primary reason to eat here is the magnificent grill, as the meat cooks slowly, the juices flow, smelling absolutely delicious, occasional sparks fly and the bread engorges with the juices from the meat and salad. I often have... More

The food here is extremely good. Freshly cooked, fresh salads and bread. The smell in the restaurant is wonderful. I have eaten here a number of times, predominately takeaway, but am never disappointed. My personal favourite is the long flatbread that is served alongside most meals. This bread is gently baked with your chosen skewered meat and then is used,... More

Kids were at in-laws and we were umming & aahing about driving to another restaurant in south woodford that we'd tried a few weeks earlier,but being tired from a long day... More
