“excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

went here for a business lunch (the lunchtime special is superb value) and the food was absolutely fantastic. The owner is a really nice person too, some of the waiting staff were a bit haphazard and forgetful though which is why my rating dropped a point - wouldnhave been 5/5 otherwise. Will return for sure.

“Really nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Visited for a family birthday meal and was impressed! The food came very fast and was really nice! I tried a little of everyones meals and they were all lovely! We had a sharing platter type thing to start which was really nice and everything seemed fresh...
It was very busy and some people may have felt rushed at how quickly they cleared the table away (i was still chewing!!) but they brought out a free desert for the birthday girl which was lovely!
I would return again on a quieter night

“great value & delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Extensive menu of both food and drinks - Enjoyed a bottle of Turkish Yakut wine-Something I have been unable to buy from a supermarket over here.
Hot Mezze starters for 2 well worth the share - Hallumi cheese, borek, Humous, Sausage - was a meal in itself and spoilt the main really as far too much.
The Mixed Kebab and CHicked Skewers were served on a bad of salad and rice - Huge portions and delicious and tneder meat.
Very cosy restaurant with very attentive service. Will be back thank you

“A thoroughly enjoyable meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Three of us had a really good dinner having booked for 7p.m.; one hot and one cold meze between us for starters, 3 mains and one dessert accompanied by a beer each and one bottle of wine. Good value at £20 per head. The food was very tasty and helpings were more than adequate
Service was prompt and the manager was very congenial - we sat outside and he regularly came out to ensure we had everything we wanted, He also spent time talking to us. The waitresses were also very amenable.
Would def. recommend this restaurant and intend to visit again in the near future.
