My Wife and I returned to Agora for a meal on 04/07/2013. It had been a while since our last visit, however absolutely nothing had changed. The food is to die for freshly prepared and cooked to an incedibly high standard, the presentation is what you would expect from a high class establishment. The mixed grill I had for my main course was the most flaversome, tender, and moist I have ever had. My wife had the kleftico and she is adamant it is the best she has had this side of the med. The staff are pleasnt, helpfull and polite in the extreme. If you need a place to have a Turkish food at its best book a table at Agora I really cannot praise it enough.

We have been coming to this restaurant for almost 10 years now and have NEVER had a bad meal. The owner is polite and charming and makes you feel very welcome. The waiting staff have changed over the years but they have always been polite and helpful.
The food is excellent, well cooked and superbly presented. There is a good selection of vegeterian dishes as well as the traditional lamb & chicken kebabs & stews.We have never had a dessert here as we have always been too full to squeeze one in.
The Agora is also excellent value for money.
