The food is delicious here and the quality of the meat superb. However, the staff leave a lot to be desired. Some are friendly but slow and seem disinterested both in their customers and their job. Others aren’t even friendly. We’ve eaten there several times...More

A typical Turkish restaurant with some good Turkish wines. The only complaint is that the "salad" that comes with the main dishes is no more than a garnish of some lettuce leaves and one slice of tomato & cucumber which lets the rest of the...More

I dined recently with a group of friends. Portions were tiny and the food, especially the fish, was massively overcooked. I didn't complain as the waiter and male owner looked grumpy enough already. I won't ever return.

I visited with a group of friends and was really impressed. The food was really good, not too expensive, and the staff were really nice. Would definitely go back.

This visit was a Friday night walk in. Very happy with the mezze starter. The three mains were all very tasty and there was plenty of them. Lovely bottle of well priced Turkish red to have with it.

The decoration is nice and makes you feel in a cosy ambiance, also due to warm and welcoming attitude of the staff. The music in the background is well chosen. The menu choice is good and offers delicious dishes for the Turkish cuisine. Definitely worth...More

What a disappointment! We ordered several starters - the humus was watery and utterly tasteless and the other starter portions were meagre in size. Of the 3 fish dishes on offer two were unavailable (Saturday night - early too!) and the chicken main course came...More

This restaurant is awful! I’ve walked past it many times and after reading reviews thought it sounded worth a try! The hummus is basically blended chickpeas and water, totally flavourless and I overheard another table send it back for the same reason. The mezze portions...More
