Went there with three friends on a friday night. Nice enough place but the food let it down. The platter we ordered was for 4-5 but we were still hungry after the meal. It should have been for 2 to share. Price of the platter should have reflected this. If you want man size portions avoid this place.

Customer service was great, very friendly and food was fresh, hot, and tastey. Chilli sauce is rather spicy but hits the spot!! 10/10

went here after my friend (regular customer) kept recommending. Decor is nice, warm. Disappointed with the food overall. We ordered a Large Platter (£50 supposedly for 5-6 people) which turned up and was not very big at al. compared to other turkish places, the portion was not generous... at the end, we were given 4 backlavas to share between 6...

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.

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
