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...

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....
