This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant over several years. The service is pleasant and friendly. Three of use shared the Meze Starter with the fabulous bread and it was plenty, I don't know how one person could manage it ;0) The wine was very reasonable priced and quaffable (did I make that word up?) As is the whole... More

If you like Turkish food then this is your place. Been here a couple of times with the other half now and each time has been brilliant. The service is quick and precise, whether the waiter is topping up drinks or bringing extra side portions of toasted bread and butter you can't fault it. The setting is comfortable and relaxed...

I love this place and go again and again for a few reasons... Staff are excellent Food is reasonably priced The food tastes lovely especially the garlic prawns to start And my fella likes the Iskander kebab and he's hard to please! The decor is lovely since they redecorated. You get cans of soft drinks rather than flat tasteless drinks... More

Very good value, food excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. We will definitely go back again. Have been before, a long time ago and it looks a lot more upmarket now.

Thought give this Turkish restaurant another try as was the company of friends more important and their choice than the venue. This place not improved any, food would be ok if served hot and altogether as service and effort good,there seemed to be a lot of headless chickens( waiters) running around trying to get it right a very busy restaurant....

We were staying in Elstree and thought we would find a restaurant at random. We found Divan's and we're not disappointed! Great food, faultless service and a very reasonable price tag too. We were in awe of the kofte and the lamb cutlets melted in our mouth. The portion sizes were amazing, both of us could not finish our mains.... More

Office lunch outing for 8. The food was very good; well-cooked, fresh and tasty. Service was polite and friendly. But what pushed it up to 5 stars was the fact that they got every single item right (sadly rather unusual in UK restaurants). Falafel 'dry' with no sauces or salads - correct. Drinks without ice - correct. Side salad without... More

Went for a family meal and was really happy with the quality of the food at this restaurant. Everyone in my party was impressed with the service and attention. All the dishes were impressive with large portions and high quality. Will definitely go back next time I am in Borehamwood.
