Stopped here for a bite on a shopping expedition in Exeter. It is only a short walk from the main central station, situated on the clock roundabout. The food was tasty and cheap. Very welcoming of our little boy hwo was given toys to play with and an extra bowl of rice after he had wolfed down his plateful of food. Would recommend.

Inexpensive, delicious authentic food and some of the nicest people. Great atmosphere for a quiet quick lunch or long chat.

We visit here most times we eat out. Why? It's an absolute pleasure without a trace of pretense.

The food is excellent- honest stuff without fancy distractions. The menu isn't huge but that's really not a problem. They make it all themselves so it's fresh and tasty. They cater well for veggies too.

Price-wise two people can eat well with a beer for around 30 quid. I've paid more than that per person in popular chains in Exeter and come away less happy.

The service is informal and exactly the right level of cheerfulness.

The only slight downer is that it sometimes lacks a bit of atmosphere but only when it's quiet. The more people there are in the better it becomes!

A very friendly family-owned cafe with tasty home-made Greek and Turkish food.
Try their delicious home-made Baklava and Almond cake with either Turkish Coffee or Turkish Tea.
The owner has been really nice to us and offered tea and coffee on him.

Note that the restaurant closes at 21:00.
