“Turkish done right.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

A bustling restaurant, atmosphere in spades and food absolutely spot on. Can't go wrong with the set menu. Service is great, everything reasonably priced, really can't fault it. A place we come back to time and time again.

“Delicious Turkish food at great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Ate here on a Thursday evening and the place was full, so I recommend making a reservation. Four of us ate a main course and had a drink each and it came to around £60. Very good service and a great menu.

“Good food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

It's a while since we have visited but food was just as good . I agree with some of the other reviews about facilities and menu unchanged but if it works I suppose why fix it ? Not many restaurants could you walk not at 6 and struggle to get a table ! a 3 course meal with lovely mezes cost £20 and the meat was excellent quality.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We didn't book ahead, but there were tables. The service was OK, the lamb was very good, the seafood was truly awful. I wanted to like the place, but no one should have been served such overcooked old fish. If you stick with meat dishes it's probably a good place to eat.

“great food, nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We booked a table for Sunday lunch but really didn't need to as although it was busy there was still enough room. The place is a bit basic, but clean and tidy, but the food is lovely!! Proper kebabs (not like the doner place down the road!!), and really tasty wine and we left after having eaten and drunk too much, finished off with the sweet taste of Turkish coffee.
You can watch the food being cooked as the kitchen area spills out into the restaurant area, which is fun.
The waiter was really friendly too which was nice.
