“Another Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I have been to Aspendos many times with a large group of friends and we've had the group menu, a great idea for this type of night, a selection (Mezza) of starters for everyone and then a selection of mains to choose from, for a set price of less than £20. This has allowed me to try new flavours as well as some familar ones.

On my latest visit I took my Mum and we ate from the full menu. As we both have similar tastes we made a point of ordering different dishes, so we could then try each others. Everything we had was flavoursome, hot and well presented (and the plates were warmed). The red wine matched the description and was served at a good room temperature and not the very cold temperature it was outside. The staff were help and attentive in this informal, friendly restuarant.

I will definitely be returning again and again. I think there is something for evry taste on their menu. Go online and have a look.

“ASPENDOS IS "ASPLENDID"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Very impressed with the range of menu including options of mixed mezze and a group menu. The food was authentic and very tasty indeed. A most relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere. Will definately return to sample more of their "turkish delights"!

“Great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Aspendos was recommended to us for meal. Unsure what too expect. Went for the set starter menu, multiple small dishes- very tasty. The main course great, there was an accompanying chilli sauce offered by waiter.......Oucha mouth on fire but very tasty.
All the staff were very helpful and attentive.
The owner a real character, gave us a free love juice drink!!!!! Nearly 30 year married!!! Husband said he needs all the help he can get!!
