The interior designed is based on Ottoman Empire tradition that is sophisticated and luxurious. The entrance door, caftan of sultans, wall lights and detailed wood works are the example of some of the characteristics of Ottoman tradition. Therefore Fora is considered as an informal dining house offering all day eating experience by providing authentic cooking at exceptional. We are always working hard to bring freshly cooked dishes to your table. Everyday, hundreds of guests walking in for the lunch, and we've got very short time to provide Fora's best quality dishes possible. No problem!

“Fantastic Turkisk!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Beautiful food that tastes fresh, delicious and authentic! The meze was so delicious and the table was filled with with around 10 dishes. The main courses too were mouth watering and my husband and I really loved the Ceslick special!
Belly dancing and Turkish music gave the whole place a really vibrant buzz.
A tad tricky to find as off the beaten track in a business area near the Gerkin, that is quiet at the weekend. The place was packed on a Sat eve and when you opened the door from the quiet street, the welcome was warm and exciting!
A great evening.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Restaurant was empty when we arrived, unlike most places, they seated the few customers that they did have were seated a the back of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive, but didn't interrupt. Food was excellent. Lovely gentle back ground music and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

Reviewed February 4, 2013

I took my daughter here to celebrate her Birthday on a cold Monday night in February - we arrived a bit early and saw that it looked pretty much empty so we went next door for a drink (don't bother with that, the pub is a bit grotty) anyways... we went in at about 7 and had a lovely time. We had the set menu which all tasted good and was great value - I booked through top table and mentioned it was my daughters birthday, the restaurant made her a little birthday cake and sang "happy birthday", she loved it. We will definitely be going back. The lamb sis was excellent and of you want chips instead of rice just ask! Thank you Bella and the rest of the team at Fora

“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Had a fantastic experience at Fora Restaurant, Aldgate. We were a group of 7 and we went for the Saturday night deal - £20 for 3 courses and belly dancing. The waitress was absolutely fabulous, the food was delicious with generous portions, and the belly dancing was brilliant! I would highly recommend this restaurant for the food, staff and overall experience!
