Food OK but the temperature inside was way too hot for us! It was coldish outside and people were smoking but it was uncomfortably hot inside. We would have had dessert but we couldn't cope. The staff seemed disinterested to hear about this.

Friendly and efficient service. But the food is average. The Greek pizza could only be eaten with a knife and fork as it was so greasy. The burgers were advertised as coming with salad and hummus but the salad was just a lettuce leaf, and the hummus just spread thinly under the pattie. The vege pasta had a pleasant flavour... More

We found this place on Food Street while looking for a place to have supper. Their specials sounded good, and they were – lots of very tasty Turkish food. They also have a wood-fired oven, and make a nice thin crust pizza. A very good meal.
