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

We've been countless times and always had good food . Service can sometimes be great , sometimes needs a bit of improvement when busy . Would recommend the big mezze sharers and feeds a few of us !! Much better than the Kervan style restaurants where I often feel like I'm sitting in a kebab shop . Would recommend !

Nice atmosphere, decent food, good service, reasonable price and good (Turkish) house wine. We ate here on saturday early evening before a show. A mixed meze - almost all vegetarian was delicious .We'll be back soon .

We have visited before and the restaurant was good, food was good along with the service. Visited 27/6/15 as a group of 9. Firstly the staff were rude and impatient when we were not ready to order and the menus were snatched off us when we did. The food was barely average, the portions were smaller and presentation was hideous.... More

Other reviews see Lava receiving low stars, I went two nights ago and it was excellent. Food beautifully cooked, free bread and salad, and the booze wasn't over priced. As for service...really good too so perplexed about the other reviews. If I came back to this area I'd have no issues returning here.

This used to be a really lovely restaurant. Good food, service and an authentic Turkish feel. Now the food is cold, the plates were filthy and nothing seems fresh! There are far better local Turkish restaurants but the owner of this one clearly doesn't care anymore and has no interest in improvement. It really has gone downhill and we'd never... More

The food was cold and not presented well, we have served better at home. The waitress was friendly ,no complaints about them,but when I complained to the management about the food, her attitude was not good and not really bothered , my advise is go somewhere else

Generally cold, overpriced and just plain bland. Real shame as prime location and lots of competition. Mega kebab always screw up order but at least food is good.
