“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is the best Turkish restaurant I 've ever been to.Been guite a few times and can never go past the Iskender which is delicious. It is very popular and I would advise booking .Love the atmosphere of the place and the table and chairs.

“Lived up to expectation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Decided to order a take away after good reports. Dined in once before but that was years ago.
Ordered an iskender and karisik. essentially the same but karisik has no butter or yoghurt sauce drizzled over. Delicious and particularly well packed with salad and pitta kept separate. Only minor thing was take away menu online has old prices so needs updated. Will be returning.

“£22 for 1 course and 1 drink per person - you decide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had another nice meal and thought the new waitress was very pleasant and helpful. I noticed different comments about the price, so thought I'd just share the info. I like the atmosphere and the smallness of the place, but I did notice a few people getting a bit grumpy about the lack of space between tables and chairs. My only real gripe is that they want you finished, table cleared and out as quick as possible. When we drive for an hour to meet up with friends, and spend a considerable amount of money, we don't think that's good. We'd spend even more money and have more courses and drinks if we weren't rushed out, but they don't seem to understand that.

“Very Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Make sure to book as small restaurant always very busy, easy to see why when the food is always so consistently excellent! A bit steep price wise but great for a treat!

“Good food, lots of it, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I've eaten more than once at the agacan, and as ticking all the boxes for me, it's also been remarkably consistent over the years. It''s small and know the owner had a chance to expand into premises next door but decided against on the grounds that the place was big enough and if it got any bigger, it would be busier and he might not have been able to keep the quality up. the result is it can be difficult to get table, especially at weekends, but there's a reason for that.
Anyway, the range of food is meat, meat and more meat, veggie options are limited. Not being veggie, I'm not marking down on that. Portions are best described as epic, especially if you go for the bigger mixed dishes like Iskender or Kulubasti.Service over the years has not changed, even though the staff have, friendly, efficient, no messing around.
Pictures, many by the owner cover the wall, and with turkish music, the atmosphere is pleasantly relaxed. a win on eery level for me, apart possibly from having to waddle up the road afterward. Prices are more than reasonable and it would difficult to beat agacan in terms of value for money..
