I had dinner here before heading to the movies. Great service, fantastic menu and delicous food. Good wine list and food and wine reasonably priced.

We ate here for dinner one night on a weekend, and found that the restaurant was quite busy We were quickly seated at our table (rather small for two, I thought), and given our menus and wine glasses/bucket. We had the vineleaves to start with; and they were really good. The dip was excellent. And for mains we had the... More

Went there for lunch today with a few friends, and had a really good time. Located in Westfield, it's really convenient to get to. Had the Chill ezme dip which was so delicious, and it was served with soft toasted bread. The Soup ( lentil soup) , which is one of the best that I have had , is fairly... More

Visited with a friend and we were made very welcome by our host. Quiet as it was a Monday night but the range of food is brilliant and we were guided in our choices. The mezze platter was delicious and the Iskender along with the "mixed grill" made for a very tasty and satisfying meal. Can't wait to go again.

We've been to the place a few times before and had some nice dishes. Today however were disappointed. Ordered two dishes, Adana and a spinach and feta Pizza. The size of the Adana was smaller and lacked taste. The pizza turned out to be a pide, looked and tasted no better than what you can find from a food court.... More

Had a lovely breakfast of baked eggs here, was something different and delicious. The serving size was perfect for breakfast, very filling but not heavy. Would definitely recommend. The service was also very good.

Then onto mains my favourite was the chicken sahara and the ottomon pide. For dessert my favourite was the turkish coffee creme brulee - a nice dark... More

We were going back to CBD in Sydney and decided to break for lunch across from the Parramatta train stop. Had a really really nice lunch there. We split a Sahara plate that made for a nice variety and plenty of food for two people.

Loved the restaurant. The food was so good. You'll never walk out hungry after being at this place. Music gets louder and louder and boom!! There's a belly dancer and she dances with everyone. So look out! A great atmosphere and great service. It's also BYO even though they don't advertise that. Great location opposite Parramatta station. I'll definitely come... More
