I visited for lunch with an old friend I'd met for the day in London. The restaurant was quite busy, but our waitress offered us a choice of tables. There is a really pleasant ambience thanks to the attractive decor, pleasant staff, and lively (but not noisy) clientelle. We chose ouir meals off the £8.95 2 course lunch deal, and our food was outstanding; you could easily pay more than double the price for food of this quality. As there was going to be a slight delay serving or first courses (and it was only a slight delay) the friendly, welcoming manageress gave us an additional starter on the house. She also did our lunches for £10 each all in, even though it should have been more than this with drinks. The food is Turkish/Mediterranean, is freshly cooked, and of excellent quality. I can particularly recommend the slow cooked lamb shoulder. This was undoubtedly the best lunch I have had over many years of days out in London.

We went out of our way to find this restaurant and to be hnest the food wasn't worth the detour.

It was fine but just that... I had better (and a similar style of food) the following week in Dalston.

Don't be fooled by the other reviews this place just isn't that great.
