The decor is fantastic, you have to take a walk round when inside. So many colours. Plenty of seating inside with a large bar area. The staff are experienced & attentive. We had the meat balls to start, mains were both lamb one with fruit (prunes/pear/apricot) the other with aubergine/vine leaves. Both very tasty well presented and ample. Well worth... More

We had a lovely meal here as a group of friends, and since we went on Valentine's day all the girls on the table were given roses! The staff were really friendly and helpful, the restaurant is beautiful with a traditional decorated ceiling and lighting. We had a variety of starters and mains and all really enjoyed our meals, lots... More

The restaurant was quiet so didn't book just walked past and decided to eat here. Friendly staff and authentic Turkish decor. Recommend the Moussaka, very tasty. Good prices and good portions. Will return when working in London.

This was our most pleasant dining experience during our week in London. A busy place but with no lack of attention from the staff. Burak, Ali and Mehmet all looked after us at some point and we had helpful advice on menu items and the food was excellent.

A beautiful restaurant with an amazing ceiling mural. The Turkish food was traditional and lovely flavours. The visit made very special by our waiter (the tall one with grey hair) who gave us the traditional Turkish welcome and friendly service. I think his name was Burak.

Having not been back for a few months, I still think this is one of the best Turkish restaurants in London. The same friendly staff, great service, top quality food and plenty of it!! The menu offers a really good choice and the food arrives piping hot.

Unfriendly service. Asked for the set menu meal and was told, in spite of outside advert, it was unavailable. Sub-standard tasteless moussaka thrown together with a soggy lettuce salad.

We came here for a late lunch or early dinner after visiting the British Museum. I guess it was the off peak hour so there were only two other tables beside us. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they tasted good, not outstanding. I ordered the lamb chop and was happy with the flavour. I won't say that it... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel porter. The restaurant is spacious, décor beautiful, staff very pleasant and a lovely, mainly turkish menu. Complimentary dips, olives and flat bread, were welcome and tasty. We went straight to our main course, which were also delicious. My husband, had a vegetarian dish, (a few on the menu). I had prawns in... More
