This is the third time I have visited this Turkish/Greek restaurant on my yearly visit to Southsea and it has never failed to please. The food was superb - I had the Lamb Kleftiko with a tomato sauce and my daughter the Lamb Frikasse cooked with thyme and parsley and in each the lamb was extremely tender. The service was... More

Meatballs were amazing!! Lovely happy to help staff and fairly priced. The group I went with all enjoyed their meals, however my partner had the king prawns which looks delicious, however were completely over done and had the texture of rubber, hence one star off. Other wise very good restaurant

Visited for the first time recently despite living very nearby. What a treat, lovely staff, packed but great atmosphere, authentic decor and fabulous food. I'm vegetarian and was literally spoilt for choice. The starter I had was one of the most delicious I have ever eaten. Can't believe I've never visited before.

We went in a group of six last Friday, 14th Oct. Service was great and the food was amazing! I ordered Babbaganush for the sole reason that I thought this was a person until last year. It was the tastiest bloody thing I've had in a long time. Also, Turkish wine is nice, who knew? Will defo be going back... More

We to the Agora last night for a quick meal before going to a gig. Everything about the experience was perfect - from the welcome on arrival, speed of service, suburb food (I had the mixed grill and it was awesome) - recommend this restaurant highly and cant wait to return

I was invited out by a client of mine for a light dinner at this quiet little Turkish Restaurant last night and promised the waiter I'd write a review to let everyone know how much I enjoyed it. Ok, so I'll start with the decor - it's a nice rustic interior with an open flame grill at the back where... More

Came with a work colleague. Starter consisted of lamb mince rolls on a bed of wet and soggy pieces of lettuce. Tasty? The lamb mince was. Main course consisted of an insignificant sized portion of rice served with a watery mix of small diced pieces of chicken and a sauce. Tasty? Not at all. Would I come again? Nothing much... More

Booked a table for two on a busy Saturday night. The staff are lovely and attentive but not too much, atmosphere is great and although it's a tiny restaurant it doesn't feel cramped at all. Lovely food and very good value for money, the bread is also lovely. Couldn't order desserts as was too full, maybe next time 😋

Thank Adrianna S
