“BORING RESTAURANT”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a boring "Mediterranean" restaurant, which in this case means Turkish with Greek influences. The ambience is unpleasant, the food average and the service quick. A trip to London or Istanbul would reveal just how much this place falls short - unfortunately a not uncommon experience in this town.

“Charming, Friendly, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely Turkish restaurant. The food was very good, the ambience exotic but not overwhelming, and the restaurant was clean and welcoming. The two gentlemen who attended to us added much to our delight: Mustafa and Yasin. They are obviously happy working there, have an easy and jovial relationship that the customer picks up, and they were very helpful in our selection of the Mezes. I have already told three friends that they must experience the Sultan, and my husband and I will certainly go again. I recommend it highly.

“Lovely restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I had dinner at Sultan with a friend on a Saturday evening, and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We had mezes which were excellent (and we both enjoy Turkish food and have quite a lot of experience in this cuisine) and the waiters were attentive without being pushy. The only slight disappointment was the baklava, which was more stodgy than I would like, but the mezes were of better quality than I have had in other places, so all in all a good experience. The restaurant was only half full, on a Saturday, which I think is a pity so I would encourage other diners to visit.

“Great food excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

I went to Sultan yesterday with my husband for our anniversary. I had a Groupon voucher for 9 mezes, for the price I paid I was not expecting such great food I was very pleasantly surprised by the portion size. We ordered hot mezes and each dish was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was quick and the staff were friendly.

The interior is very beautiful and it reminded us both of our honeymoon in Istanbul last year. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone and I plan on going back very soon.
