“Great value and comfortable setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had such a wonderful anniversary meal here, the wine was extremely reasonable, my boyfriend had the mixed grill and i had the salmon, both were lovely. We were given an extra starter on the house,and the service was incredible, we were made to feel so at home and were never rushed at all, We don't live in the area but we will be going back as soon as we can. Thankyou!

“great food and exceptional value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The food is extremely good, and the service efficient and very friendly. We went there before a show at Saddler's Wells. We don't live nearby, but we will be looking for excuses to go here again.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went here for lunch last week. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was very good quality. We had the 2 courses for £8.95 deal, my companion had the hummus with sausage starter, followed by the excellent lamb shank; I had scallop and chorizo kebab followed by Shish Kebab, all very tasty. All in all an excellent meal.

“Deserves the great reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is not a gourmet, Michelin star standard restaurant, but it is excellent at what it does and that's why it has earned the top reviews. Food was all delicious, we shared the three meze platters to start and got a nice range of dips, meat and seafood. Everyone commented on how delicious their main courses were and they were all presented well too. I had the tuna steak, the waiter asked how I wanted it cooked (medium rare) and it was cooked to perfection, juicy and well seasoned. The adana kebabs were packed with flavour and spice. Portions were all the perfect size.

Service was faultless. The waiters were extremely friendly and efficient. They chatted about how we are and if we were celebrating anything in particular. We were waiting for a couple of people when we arrived and were brought plates of olives and an interesting feta chilli dip to nibble on. At the end of the meal, after turning down dessert (too full) we were given amaretto on the house. A superb restaurant that I would recommend to everyone.

“Simply outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I wish I lived nearer to Upper Street Islington; Cambridge is just too far away! My wife and I ate Sunday lunch there today - my third visit (see previous review), her first - and she loved it as much as I do. The food is first class and plentiful, the staff charming. We ate off the 2 course fixed price menu, and were given both a pre-starter to share, and coffees after the meal, all "on the house". This is one London restaurant worth travelling well out of your way to visit, although, having said that, 300m south on Upper Street from Highbury and Islington tube will make it pretty accessible for most!
