On a Friday evening @9.15ish, we walked into a busy restaurant with no reservation. We fully expected that we might be turned away or at best told to have a drink & wait. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome & with a quick check of the diary & a glance around the floor to see what stage diners were up to we were offered a table straight away. Apologies were made as our table was right by the door, but bearing in mind we hadn't booked it was fine (it didn't affect the evening at all, wasn't draughty & didn't feel like you were eating in a corridor)
Drinks were ordered & arrived promptly, food order was taken efficiently but without being rushed.
Starters arrived, meze platter for one was delicious, particularly the tsatziki, the meatball starter my husband chose was ok, meatballs good quality, tomato based sauce a little bland. For main course I had a lamb tagine dish with wild rice which was really tasty, my husband went for the Turkish mixed grill which was beautifully spiced. The portions were generous & so I'm not sure how, but we did manage dessert, ice cream which was lovely but ultimately just ice cream & a tiramisu which was clearly homemade, flavour was lovely, sponge a bit dry for my taste but still good.
There was a big speaker on the end of the bar on which you could tell there was a singer somewhere, when my husband went upstairs to the toilet he said there were bigger parties upstairs, with a singer & a belly dancer, this was advertised outside the restaurant but you obviously don't get the benefit of this if you sit downstairs. This wasn't a problem but maybe if we'd gone because of the entertainment we would have been disappointed. If you were going with a group for an occasion I would ask to sit upstairs.
Whilst we were there we noticed that they have a good deal on at lunchtimes (think it was a two course special) & that they also have a childrens menu so I am looking forward to going again to try this.
