Took my daughter for lunch having seen the advertised £9 lunch menu, however upon paying my bill they had charged me full price, when I questioned them they told I had to ask for the lunch special menu! This was not told to me by the... More

This was the second time we had visited in about 5 weeks. The food is really tasty and not over priced. Service is laid back and un-rushed. Sadly not a lot of atmosphere. Would we go back? Yes! We like the food.

On holiday in Worthing and decided that, as this was a short walk from our hotel and we like Turkish food, it would be a good place to celebrate my husbands' birthday.

We went to the Istanbul for a meal and chose the set menu. It was really delicious. We had cold and hot starters, lamb and chicken, rice salad and a selection of desserts. It was a lovely meal and they also had an really good vegetarian selection for my daughter. Fresh, clean, beautifully cooked and lovely surroundings.

Had a decent meal here, staff friendly, but lacked a bit atmosphere, maybe that was a mid week thing.

I was disappointed that they didn't offer any Turkish tea after the meal, which seems to be the standard now for Turkish restaurants. However the food was really delicious.
