Divan, what can i say, we have been there many times, the staff, owners, management are a true delight. The food is the best Turkish i have ever eaten, even better than in Turkey. If the meat was any fresher it would still be walking around. The family attitude is delightful, so welcoming, they make you feel so special. OMG... More

i had a takeaway kebab here in the middle of last year (May). The Kebab was very nice although i found the person who served me didn't listen to me about the salad added to it. The items of salad I asked to leave out she still added anyway and the resturant wasn't too busy that evening.

We were recommended by our family who live in the area to try this restaurant for a quick and well cooked meal. We were not disappointed, the food was tasty and service was fast. We all had different starters and main courses and with drinks and service it worked out at £20 per head. Good value for money.

Busy little restaurant and takeaway as close to the station. Crisp white linen tablecloths always gives me a first good feeling ! We weren't disappointed - extensive menu, food was really good, well cooked and nicely presented. We both chose a lamb dish which had been slow cooked - wonderfully tender and flavoursome. We were also provided with some nibbles... More

The number of supposedly Turkish restaurants in London and suburbs is incredible, but this would be, I believe one of the best and most reasonable. The service is very attentive, and not too many places have such clean, starched tablecloths. The food is freshly cooked, the seasoning neither too bland nor red hot, the accompanying bread is always appetising. We'd... More

Having eaten here from it's beginning it has yet to disappoint me and my family over the past few years. Memet and his very able staff are always attentive and try very hard to make your eating experience a good one,but alas the clientel can be rather loud and off putting if you have gone out for a quiet night...
