I have visited here around 4 times over the fast couple of years having it being one of the only resteraunts within the area. The price is amazing for the quality and taste of the food. The staff are very friendly and attentive-I have been here for breakfast lunch and dinner all very pleased with! The interior design is pretty... More

My boyfriend and I walked in on a chance after saying for quite a while we should try it but never done since we had heard mixed reviews of it. But we left satisfied. They did give me calamari instead of haloumi at first as a starter but it was quickly replaced with the right dish when I mentioned it.... More

This place is AWESOME. Best creme brûlée I ever had. Food never fails. Amazing black-eyed beans salad. Literally each thing we had there was so tasty, fairly priced and the service absolutely charming and thoughtful. We used to be regulars and are not anymore because we moved somewhere else but miss this place a lot and recommend to anyone.

From the outside, you cannot tell that thus restaurant serves a Turkish Cypriot cuisine. The staff were helpful and friendly, with a friendly ambience residing in the main body of the restaurant (childrens drawings on the wall). Prices were extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend to eat here.

If you have read any of my other reviews, you will see a lot for places in Turkey as we go 1/2 times a year. We have just moved to the Isle of dogs and found this little place by chance. And simply... YUM. It is literally the nicest Turkish food I have ever had, that includes the 9 times... More

This place was really lovely. The staff were polite and efficient but in no way overbearing. Menu was easy to read and simple but plenty of choice. Drinks weren't expensive and plenty to choose from. The meal was fantastic, the starters were the perfect size and uncomplicated. Bread and dips were given while deciding our order. The main meals were... More

We've eaten here twice, my girlfriend and I. My girlfriend is a vegan, and - whilst they do cater for vegans - there's only really one main dish that is suitable. Vegan-ness aside, I've had salmon and the steak here. The salmon was overdone, and the steak was so-so. The wine made up slightly for the fare but if I... More

Had delivery through through Deliveroo. Food was bland, very average and for £45 with no drinks didn't feed three people

This was a good budget lunch with a friendly waitress and enough choice of food. Nice ambience with pictures showing the history of the area on the wall. My Liver came quickly and was cooked perfectly. The starter and meal deal of £7.50 perfectly sensible. A good place to linger and chat over a coffee I think.
