“For special occasions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

A lovely little restaurant with friendly staff. Service was good and there was a great atmosphere. We did find the price a little high. We had a starter and main each, a soft drink and 2 lagers and we spent almost £44 (without a tip). The food was superb - we couldn't fault it. We will go again but probably only only for a special occasion.

“Intimate little restaurant now called 'Az' not 'Haz', excellent Turkish food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went there on Easter Sunday. Excellent value. 4 hot Mezes and 4 cold plus a main course and a drink was under £40 for 3 I think.

Food was very good. Is set in a converted terrace house and only has about half a dozen tables inside though they can set two extra outside. Nice to have something different from the usual continental cuisines. I believe the owner is Turkish and cooks. Came out at the end and asked if everything was ok. Nice touch.

Service was a little slow, food too but they could have been a tad more attentive. But it wouldn't put me off coming back again.

“Lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The service is here is very friendly but other aspects don't match up. The food is nothing more than okay, and they do themselves no favours by having no lamb in order to make an iskender with at peak time on Saturday night. Obviously very poor (or no) preparation. No Turkish tea either, and the rice pudding is served hot.
Okay for Scarborough, I suppose.

This was the fourth time I've eaten at Az (formerly known as Haz) and again I had an enjoyable evening with lovely (vegetarian) food.

“Excellent food - highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My wife and I have just enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Haz (or Az) and have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant. Delicious food, really good service and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Really great to have a number of options for both of us (my wife is vegetarian and I am not). Delicious complimentary soup taster on arrival followed by delicious starters: one salad and one filo pastry cheese 'cigars' followed by stuffed aubergine with bulgar wheat and a seafood casserole. All was beautifully cooked, fresh and filling (without being heavy). FIVE STARS
