“Very good Turkish food!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Went shopping in Leicester & we were looking on the Narborough Road on the way back for something to eat. Not sure if it's newly opened or I've missed this place before?
We love Turkish food so we thought we would give the place a try.
Warm welcome from the staff. Clean & light dining room with open kitchen, displaying all the kebabs you can order.
Had a hot meze platter to share, followed by Ikender kebabs. The food was very authentic & very tasty. Portions are good & the price is very reasonable.

“Great for meze”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fantastic to have a new local restaurant that isn't an Indian or Italian… We had one mixed cold meze and one mixed hot meze between 2 of us, which along with the complimentary bread and olives was plenty of food and very tasty. Service was good and I would recommend the turkish tea, a red tea which is served without milk. We have not tried the main course but will definitely return to have the meze again.

“A great addition to Narborough Road”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

An authentic Turkish restaurant which serves very good food.
Service was excellent, attentive, quick and helpful.
The starter was excellent -lovely food well presented. However when the main arrived it looked very much like the starter - there was just the addition of rice with exactly the same salad. There is nothing wrong with this, it was tasty but a little boring.
A glass of wine would have been good but at the moment it is an alcohol free restaurant.
Overall it was a little bit pricey for what it is.
