Plenty of time needed

We have used this restaurant many times. The food is average. However service can be slow. On our last visit we wanted 15mins for someone to take our drinks order. Then we waited another 20mins for them to come. This was before our food order was taken. Our food came but one starter was missing... read more

I have heard wonderful things about this place. We ordered a take away. The language barrier was a bit of an issue And the take away line is different to the restaurant. Our order was incorrect and a rice item was missing despite being charged for. Food was okay but no better than anywhere else we have eaten.

The Turkish style food is always of a good quality and served relatively fast, and is very family friendly. Always busy and lives up to expectations. My only fault is the portion sizes are getting smaller with the same prices as before.

My friend and I visited Lavas on Friday evening. Table for two was in an ok location. We ordered a main course of chicken shish and several starters all to share. The chicken shish was extremely small with a portion of cold rice and small salad. Garlic king prawns (3) and little sauce. Humus, can't really go wrong. Borek, filo... More

My wife and I have never encountered such a rude attitude from the unfriendly staff at the lavas takeaway branch in cheshunt.My wife has been called a liar, in relation to an incorrect order that lavas supplied. I asked for an apology,he declined!! The staff member in question admitted he was the owner,or he said he was the owner.

Been here on a number of occasions and always good,. Best Turkish flatbread I've had anywhere . Meze and Meat kebabs are very nice indeed and the waiting staff are very efficient. Very good value also.

Six of us came to lavas for a birthday meal. The restaurant was very very busy and I think more staff would have been good as the ones who were there were really rushed off their feet. We had the mixed meze to start which was excellent; especially the borek. The mains came out in three stages; two of the... More

Good value for money here. The only critisism is the fact they advertise 'beef medallions' on the menu which is in fact just steak. Medallions should be in smaller portions so they should take this off the menu. Food quality is very good and the service is always great.

My partner and I used to frequent here as a quick bite to eat after finishing work late. Recently it has gone down hill very quickly and we have not returned since. The staff are very rude and inattentive, the food which was once great is not fresh anymore (recent chicken doner was definitely off and inedible). Also if you... More
