“Best restaurant on Mill Road”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

If you're really after decent Turkish food in Cambridge, the Dervish @ Tudor Rose is the best place to go to. Surpassing Anatolia and the similar Shiraz and Al Casbah (the latter practically next door), it combines friendly staff with delicious food and reasonable prices.

Try it. You won't go anywhere else afterwards.

“Walk straight past Al Casbah and go here!”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

Great food, polite and friendly staff, prompt service and good value. They do not accept cards but this is clearly stated on the menu. All the things you don't find at Al Casbah next door!! We will definitely return to eat here.

“Great place to eat!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

I was looking for a place to eat while away on business, Dervish served up a great value and enjoyable meal. The service from the waitress was a little cold but it didn't detract from the overall experience and the free wifi was great.

“Our favourite restuarant in Cambridge”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

This is our favorite restaurant in Cambridge. My boyfriend and I come here regularly and are happy to bring friends and family. It's like Al Casbah with much nicer food and friendlier staff. They have plenty of yummy veggie options and never charge extra for extra bread and salad, the staff are polite, kind and don't rush you and the food is amazing. 10 out of 10.

“Fantastic neighbourhood Turkish”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

I have to admit it wasn't until recently that, on pining one night to a respected foody friend of the dearth of good (emphasis on good) Turkish options in Cambridge, I had even considered the Tudor Rose as a dining option. Only 500 metres from our bolthole along Mill Road, this was a nigh-unforgivable offense, and one that had to be rectified post-haste. We went that very night, and I'm very, very glad we did.

Simple, flavourful kebab dishes are served straight off the mangal at the front of eatery, presented cheerily and efficiently alongside mounds of fresh salad and bowls of tangy hummus. The yogurtlu kebabs are delicious, particularly when served with aubergine. Simple, no-nonsense, and unexpectedly excellent food served in an unpretentious place. Dervish at the Tudor Rose is precisely what a good neighbourhood restaurant should be, and they soundly out-perform the other Turkish places on Mill Road.
