A great sized restaurant, not too small and not vast so quite intimate. Good value Turkish food in a street where there are lots of choice. About £40 for a couple including wine. Worth a visit but difficult parking close by.

We have been coming here for years and we always have the mixed hot and cold Meze. It's very good. The owner is from Turkey so that's the influence. Decor is perhaps a little dated but that does take away from the quality of the...More
