Went here a lot for lunch, the lahmacun (I think I'm spelling that right) is excellent, and the service is great along with the prices. Would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area!

Came to try for the first time and it was excellent fresh delicious food and for your money you get great service and lots of food. The waiter was a excellent friendly gentleman with perfect service even though it was busy he was managing everything perfectly. Will definately come back and highly recomended.

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.
