Great Food

Friday evening visit......very busy and car park full so had to leave our car with the valet. We arrived early so were asked to go upstairs to the bar and someone would find us when our table was ready. There is band that plays up stairs, they start their set at 8pm. As promised someone can and... read more

Beautiful restaurant, and even better food. Definitely the best Turkish restaurant I have been to so far. The staff were very friendly, except for one bar lady who was quite rude. I ordered a pornstar martini which wasn't freshly made and tasted like it was out of a packet from a supermarket. The bar and live band was excellent, and... More

Find it hard to believe there is only 1 table for two available on a Sat night between now and end of April and that's at 6.30pm...!! Obviously the dinner slots from 8.30pm are reserved for the Z listers.... what a shame.

We have recently visited the restaurant for a night out with friends. You arrive in a courtyard at the back and park your car. Outside would be great in the summer with large seating areas and heaters if needed. Couple of old classic if you like your cars. Go inside and it opens up a complete variation of dining experiences.... More

Tried a few times to book a table - months in advance, can never get one or get offered 6pm - 8pm slot! Who wants that, spending a decent amount of money and rushing your dinner so they can re-use the table! Opened the newspaper this morning, the TOWIE and latest Big Bro lot were there at the weekend -... More

I have been here 3 times now. Once with my mum, one with my boyfriend and once with my girl friends and loved all 3 occasions! The food is lovely and so is the cocktails! It is slightly expensive to eat here but is so worth it :) I have seen Mark Wright & Lethal Bizzle having lunch here whilst... More

I'm a standard humus as a starter and chicken sheesh as a main kinda person, and I have to say I throughly enjoyed it. The chicken was succulent and nicely spiced, there was also salad for days, like so much salad nicely arranged on the platter. The humus had a perfect balance of chick pea to oil. Sounds odd but...

We visited for lunch and had the choice of where we sat, so plumped for the conservatory which we had to ourselves. The waiters were very attentive, service was quick. The portions were huge so much so that after a shared starter and main we could not manage dessert. Bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

Money has been lavished on this restaurant to acieve a certain style. The food however leaves something to be desired. The plus points are the main course, both the lamb chops and lamb shish kebab had absolutely delightful meat with the standard salads. The down side is it's not cheap. However my starter of kalamari was barely edible, i stopped... More
