“Sad decline in standards - overstretched by Groupon?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We visited this restaurant the first time using a Groupon voucher and it was very good value. The service was good, the food was tasty (the lamb's liver being particularly good) and we looked forward to another visit. Again using a Groupon voucher, we arrived anticipating a pleasant evening. It was a very busy night for the staff but one of the hot dishes, the icli kofte, came to the table tepid. It had clearly been prepared earlier and had simply not been deep fried for long enough. We sent it back to the kitchen; it was returned still lukewarm. We couldn't eat it; cold minced lamb in soft breadcrumbs isn't appetising.The waitress didn't come back to see if we were happy with the meal. Perhaps too much Groupon custom had stretched this kitchen beyond its capacity.

“Lively Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had a very good meal here. Arrived late (10.00pm) not many people eating. Our food was excellent and the service friendly. There was a party of maybe 15 people celebrating a birthday and the staff brought out a cake. One of the party started dancing and other people gradually joined in. This culminated in guests waiters and even the chef dancing in the middle of the room!! We thought this was great and enjoyed watching. Noticed that one older man (possibly the owner) was taking care to see that diners were not disconcerted by this. Perhaps not the place for a quiet romantic meal, but if you want good food and are willing to go with the flow then try it.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Went yesterday at 4ish in the evening & we were the only customers (understandably b'cos of the odd time). Loved the freshly baked bread they served with the starter . Main course was grilled Chicken wings , lamb chops and an entire fish . These came along with a leafy salad ,some red cabbage & spiced rice . Everything tasted nice & fresh,though it would have been good to have less salad & more rice . The waiter was very attentive & took the trouble to show us the type of rice grain that was used. A good time was had by all.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

After reading the other Tripadvisor reviews I was looking forward to visiting.

However the meze of dishes we had were poor. The Patlican Salatasi contained no aubergine and was a small plate of yoghurt and olive oil.

The service was poor and we were ignored except for when the food was brought to the table.

Unfortunately we won't be returning anytime soon as I think better quality food can be had at Efes and Zeguma.

“Fantastic fresh food, a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

I have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The food is so fresh, you watch it being cooked over coals I have had a real variety and have always been really impressed. The traditional turkish dishes are fab and I would also really recommend the fish. It doesn't look like much when you approach as it's on the first floor above a grocer but its well worth the trip up the stairs. We have 3 young children who also love the food and the staff are freindly and accommodating, They even have a selection of hairsprays and deodorants in the loo.
