I think the potions are very small for the price, but it is still good to eat. All staff were good 😊

A friend suggested this lovely little restaurant and I'm glad I went. The food is simple Mediterranean/Turkish fayre but really well prepared and full of flavour.

We opted for the £20 per head Chefs Special Meze which is a mixture of hot and cold starters and mains. Have to... More

Came here for lunch with a friend. There is a good selection of food and a reasonable lunch and dinner deal. We had a selection of starters and they were all extremely tasty, made from really good ingredients which were very fresh.

Absolutely loved it such a small cheeky place. Tasty meat very fresh. It is a small place and we were lucky to get in. The waiter was charming. Food was beautiful and a good price can't complain!

Cheerful service at this little local restaurant. We had the mixed cold meze plate. More than enough for lunch for two. Semi sweet coffee and excellent baklava to finish. Reasonable prices.

My wife and I ate here on a Sunday evening on their two courses for £12.95 per person offer. (available Sunday-Thursday). To start we had pan fried garlic sausages cooked with peppers and mushrooms, and pan fried mushrooms with feta cheese. Both portions were generously sized, and obviously cooked to order. The tomato sauce with the garlic sausage was particularly... More
