“Nothing special”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

After reading the raving reviews we decided to go ourselves. Conclusion: good value for money but nothing special.
Friendly staff, ok food, ok service, but all nothing really outstanding. I can imagine this is a good place to have lunch every week.

“Nice evening meal with friends”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

A group of 8 friends went to Pera for an evening meal. The menu selection was good - something for everyone. One friend absolutely loved the chicken liver. I had a huge seafood platter - very tasty. Overall good portion sizes, friendly staff and the atmosphere was ideally more mellow than Nandos!

Amazing little place! Staff were very attentive, friendly and humorous . We even received a free glass of wine because we arrived between 5-7pm. Food was tasty, meat cooked to perfection a great little place would highly recommend!

“Birthday meal”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This was our second visit to Pera in 4 months; this time to celebrate a 60th birthday party. The table was beautifully set with confetti, banners and balloons. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff provided excellent service, very friendly. There were 11 of us and everyone talked of the high standard of food and service. The staff did us proud. We had travelled to this restaurant from Edinburgh, Cornwall, Devon, St. Albans and East London and would do so again without hesitation!

“A real nice surprise”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

I adore Turkish food anyway but this place is a little gem. Great food, unpretentious with friendly service. For the price you could barely get a McDonalds. I had the vege meze platter at around 8 quid which was really filling and really tasty. If I could afford to live in Islington then this place would become a regular haunt.
