We went for dinner here last night and had a great time.This gem is located just before a turn on Dornoch Cr.The ambience was really nice you almost feel like your sitting in Turkey for a minute.I grew up in Dubai so am very familiar with authentic Turkish cuisine and these guys were spot on.The staff was really friendly and...

This is an unpretentious little Turkish resaurant, a little out of the way of the city. The place is quite busy and can get noisy making it hard to chat. We enjoyed sitting outside on the back verandah - there's heaters out there as well in case it gets a little chilly - which it did when we visited. I... More

Friday lunch time at the Caravanserai sees the restaurant empty. The setting is basic, the menu as well,be it that the dishes are authentically Turkish. Food is well prepared, my chicken skewers are well prepared, but the dish as a whole nothing to write home about. Even the price is average. Wine is BYO.

I went to this restaurant 2 weeks ago and I was amazed by the atmosphere. I heard a lot about it before so I was keen to give it a try. It's BYO so if you wanna enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, you have to bring it yourself. Service was very friendly and quick even though it... More

The food was great, and the place is wonderfully decorated. The staff were quite friendly and helpful in all manners of service. There were two downsides for me, it was pretty noisy and lots of movement happening around our table, the second point was that it was definitely not good value for money. I ordered the spinach and goats cheese... More

We enjoyed this night with friends and family. We had the meze plate to start with, the meat was amazing, but the dips were very sad. The fresh Turkish bread was great too. The main were okay.. really disappointed with them in fact. I wished more from this place, but I did not quite deliver for me or my wife.... More

Had the best evening at Caravanseri tonight. Group booking (birthday) for 11 people, service was exemplary, food was spectacular and everyone left very happy. Fifth time I've been to this restaurant and report the same great experience each time. I recommend highly. Special note to the team (chef and guest managers) - thank you.
