“Great food, great value and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had the 3 course fixed lunch for £6.99. Well-cooked and perfectly portioned for lunch. The sesame bread that came with the starter was warm and delicious - and the other two courses didn't disappoint either. My only suggestion would be that they ditch the pre-prepared, supermarket salad leaves and replace them with a simpler [cheaper] Turkish style salad. Otherwise, really good. We can't wait to have dinner there.

“A taste of over seas where you're right at home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I went one lunch time for the three course menu for £6.99. Really enjoyed the meal. I had hummus and a huge sesame seed flat bread. I did find a hair in the bread, and just removed the piece with it in and didn't say anything. It did belong to the staff as it was a distinct colour!

However DO NOT let this put you off, better noticed than not.

My main was chicken and bulgar wheat, which was delicious. Tender and juicy with just the right amount of spice.

Desert was a banana. drizzled with honey and pistachio nuts. Gorgeous.

Staff were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed a complimentary Turkish tea and on leaving were offered delicate, Turkish delight.

I will be back. The open fire was great to see on such a perishing day.

“Turkish Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

I had a good feeling about this restaurant when my husband and I called in to book on the afternoon of our visit. We were not disappointed. Our evening was superb. The staff were friendly, attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxed and informal. I would definitely recommend a visit here to anybody who lives in, or, like us were visiting Cheltenham for the weekend. Oh, and if it's your birthday - do mention it to the staff - you'll be in for a surprise!

This is a hidden gem of Cheltenham, decently priced food, full of flavour and welcoming family run service. Worth a visit!

“Hidden gem with excellent service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have visited this restaurant many times and have to say that it is a real hidden gem. Cheltenham is pretty much full of quite flashy restaurants which can be a little soul less at times. This isn't one of those places, my friend described it as 'the sort of place you would find next to a beach in Turkey' and she is right. The interior is totally unpretentcious but don't let this mis-lead you.

The service has always been excellent, the place seems to be run by a family who go out of their way to be helpful without being intrusive. On every visit I have received either free flatbread which is delicious and straight out of the oven, free fruit salad to finish the meal or free Turkish tea or coffee or a combination of all of the above!

The food is straight forward well cooked fayre, it isn't fancy but it tastes good and the portion sizes are generous. I have taken many friends here who have all agreed that whilst it isn't somewhere they would have naturally considered, it turned out to be a great suprise and worthy of return visits.
