Quality little local restaurant. Best doner meat around.
Very small so best to book, the food is really good, always a queue for takeaways. Not expensive at all for a restaurant. £12 for a main. £12 for a takeaway kebeb would be expensive but not for a restaurant meal. I hope this place is around for another 20 years!

Step through the door from the take away area to the back of the Lale and it is like being transported to a holiday destination.The restaurant decor makes me think of time spent in Cyprus. The food obviously has a bias towards Turkish cuisine as you would expect. It is excellently prepared, and there is something to support most palates in generous portions. The Adana Kofte and Halep (which is one for those who like spicy food) I would recommend thoroughly.

Well behaved children are made very welcome by this family run restaurant, but if your children are more used to being able to run off into a soft play area than sit at a table, this may not be the best spot to bring them.

I've been visiting this restaurant regularly for quite a few years, and have always found the food, service and atmosphere superb. My wife and children, all love this restaurant too.

I was unsure when I first heard it was a Turkish restaurant, however there is a wide range of food on offer and all very delicious. Me and my friends often go here and would really recommend it to anyone. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very homely as the staff are so friendly and welcoming, have never had a problem here as they are such lovely people. Amazing food and amazing people, love love love it!!

What a find, this fabulous Turkish Restaurant is situated in Eltham in South East London and has to be one of the best turkish meals I have had in a long time. The service, menu and prices were brilliant, a must visit if you are ever in the area

The food here is better than I have experienced in Turkey.
I love the atmosphere and it feels like being on holiday.
The staff and owners are super friendly and provide an excellent service.
The problem with telling everyone is I might not be able to book a table if everyone finds out how good it is.

We love it!
