“Nice Restaurant - good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is called a "Mediteranean" restaurant. It is more Turkish I think with some dishes that would be considered Greek. Food was nice. Not very many people dining that night so waiters were seemingly watching the diners and plates were whipped away as soon as eaten. Good if you are in a hurry, but maybe with the prices charged you might want to linger a while. The bill comes in a little wood box like a coffin, which is left on the table once you have paid. Just right to put the tip in I imagine.

“Turkish Inspired restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The first time we ate here we thought we were going to eat Mediterranean-style food but in fact the menu is based on Turkish/Greek specialities. The place was empty at 7pm when we arrived and still empty at 830pm when we left (apart from one other table of diners) so atmosphere not great. However, the plate of meze as a main course was superb. Better than anything we ate in Istanbul or the Middle East!

“Top Meze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Our table of six shared 3 Meze platters, plenty served with delicious bread. All the main courses were good. We also shared some baklava pastries to go with coffees and unusual rose tea. Service was very good.

“nice decour and friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

from the description of the menu it sounded like authentic greek food. I liked the rice and salad I had but my marinated chicken tasted as if it was bought in.Also I think £5.50 is a bit steep for a glass of house wine
