“Second time lucky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We visited Agora a few years ago when it first opened and were not overly taken so have not been back since, but were in Headingley last Friday and decided to give it another try- we were pleased we did! The menu is a mix of Greek and Turkish dishes- I understand the proprietor is a Turk who has lived in Greece- and the three starters and three mains we had were all excellent, particularly the Turkish ones. The £12.95 two course deal, advertised on the website and in the restaurant as only available during the week but running on Friday too when we were there, is exceptionally good value. I don't think it'll be so long until our next visit!

“A real find! Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We went in there today for the first time with our two young children who were made to feel really welcome.

We opted for the £12.95 for 2 courses option and it was absolutely delicious. The choice on the menu was very varied and it was exceptional value.

The staff were lovely too - really helpful and friendly.

This restaurant really is a must - the food is fantastic and it really is superb value.

We will definately be visiting again!

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Four of us visited and three of us had the £12.95 for two courses menu. It is the standard menu with a few things excluded but there is still plenty of choice. The fourth member of our party arrived about an hour after the rest of us but the chef held back our main courses for as long as possible and was very speedy in producing the food for our fourth guest once he'd arrived. The service was good and this is the second time we have eaten here.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Great food in a warm atmosphere! I've been visiting The Agora regularly since it opened. I like almost everything in the menu,but keftedes potato is my favourite! They have got nice Turkish beers and wines. A MUST place to visit for Mediterranean food lovers.

“The Agora is excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I love the Agora. The service is warm and friendly and there is ample choice. The lamb keftedes are gorgeous. Never had a bad meal here and prices are very reasonable. Well worth a visit!
