“Best this side of the Bosphorous”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The real thing! Simple foods well presented in the chilled display cabinets transferred to the enticing charcoal grill or the massive open oven, and then onto the plate, simple presentation
well cooked and tasty, tender meats and delicious sauces, delicious.
Hot or cold starters were generously portioned, the breads moorish (as opposed to Turkish)
and the deserts delicious if you can manage it.
The staff and management were attentive and friendly overall a great experience.
My Mrs. who is Greek knows about this stuff says the food was nearly as good as her Yaya used to make, and that's some recommendation!

“Just great”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Excellent service from beginning to end. As soon as you walk in the smells from the kitchen hit you. Food was first class and value second to none. Will definitely be returning

“Can't believe I haven't been before!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Saw the reviews on here I thought I should give it a go.... Managed to park outside and went in without a booking. Was only one other table in but by 8.30 it was full. It is spotlessly clean and although at first I though this may be a very nice sit down kebab house (I'm not being rude when I saw this its just the glass fridges made me think of that) I soon relished it was nothing of the sort. We both has starters and main courses and it was fantastic. Simple cooking made delicious... The staff where lovely and dressed smart and very attentive.. I was unfamiliar with this type of cuisine so my only suggestion would be to maybe ask if you need any help or suggestions on the dishes. We finished with a dessert to share and with drinks came to £50 very reasonable
I will defiantly be returning but this time I will ensure i book a table!
Love love loved it!

“lovely dining experience”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We decided to try this restaurant for a different family meal out and also to celebrate a 30th birthday! We noticed the very good reviews and looked forward to trying the Turkish menu. The whole experience was excellent from the friendly way we were greeted on arrival, to the beautifully cooked and presented food. The staff were friendly, helpful and the restaurant was beautifully clean. We certainly will return and will be recommending this restaurant to our friends.

“Great service, great food. Will go back very soon”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Four of us went for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. The food tasted fresh, extremely tasty and well cooked. My daughter has to have a gluten free diet and she was told exactly what she couldn't have off the menu leaving plenty of choice for her. She was even given a separate plate of starters. A nice friendly atmosphere with lovely food. Try it !
