Have been here each time I travel to Melbourne and stay at the Sebel across the road. I always order the shisha and have a relaxing smoke. On one occasion we had dinner here and ordered the sharing platter and bread with dips. We were not disappointed. The portion was huge and was very tasty. Their wine list is also... More

We visited here on a quiet evening. Food excellent, turkish bread and four dips, then a big plate of meats, rice, vegetables and salad to share. Meats included chicken, lamb, beef, sausages. Although it isn't the most plush surroundings, it is not so bad and it is clean. Recommend the groupon deal. They even swapped the wine for an Efes... More

Whilst the decore is a bit tired, with the tables and especially chairs in need of a long overdue replacement, there is still some ambience within the restaurant. We found the food and service very good. Our meals arrived on hot steel serving plates ensuring the meal was hot for the duration of the meal. Meat and accompanying vegetables, rice... More

The dips and plenty of turkish bread were very good and the main course ample. The photo on the ad does not tell the story. We received pita bread with beef, chillies, tomatoes, peppers, rice and a bit later the salad. Only one meat no choice. The glass of wine each was also included. We were told there was free... More

One of two Groupon vouchers I redeemed on my visit to Melbourne. The staff were most welcoming and happy to substitute drinks for those denoted on the voucher. The dips were yummy, with more than enough dipping breads. The variety of meats from the footlong kebab was amazing. I particularly enjoyed the lamb chop. I was surprised to find a... More

We visited for dinner on a Monday night - so it was not busy. We were welcomed and given a good seat. We ordered some drinks and a Meze plate to share- it included fresh bread, dips, fetta, olives, vegetables and kofte. We had not even finished the Meze plate when the main courses arrived. We each ordered a separate... More

One very small plate of rice and salad not sufficient for a lone diner let alone the 4 it was meant for. I would like to hero... More

Visiting Melbourne for a concert at Etihad Stadium we were after dinner before the show. Achelya was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Achelya is off the main drag of New Quay opposite the entrance to the Sebel Docklands. We were seated promptly and while the upholstery on the chairs suggests they are well over due for replacement the... More

Purchases a voucher meal. Small servings to share between 4 people and a lot was burnt or over cooked. Sitting inside with shisha smoke in the same building so not a place of you don't want to inhale smoke while you are eating dinner!
