Reviewed January 27, 2013

Always love going to the Agacan, I have tried nearly everything on the menu and nothing disappoints. Great food, great art and great people. A must for anyone who loves good food.

“Small is beautiful”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

My wife, though not a Turkish food fan, brought me here for my birthday … and we're both delighted she did. Its tiny size (only 18 seats) colourful decor and 6 bustling staff made for a great atmosphere. The food was really delicious with big helpings and, although the main courses are a little on the pricy side, the quality of the food and the low cost of the starters and drinks made it a reasonably priced evening. The service was friendly and efficient, with a mark deducted only because we weren't told credit cards weren't accepted until we got the bill. We later spotted discrete notices on the wall, but being warned at time of booking would have avoided a walk in the rain to find a cash machine. Didn't dampen the experience, though.

“Delicious and Entertaining”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The food is awesome and the staff delightful. The place is tiny with intense bright coloured art everywhere. The cooks and staff were bopping to Gangnam style. It was a lot of fun.

“Dundee's Finest”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

I was introduced to this place half a lifetime ago - I even got a print of the place hanging on the wall in my house. Without a doubt its the best place to eat in Dundee - as long as you are a meat eater! A group of friends once rented the whole place for the night - one of the most magical nights ever!!
The Iskander is, for me, the zenith of the menu.
The small size of the place, along with the eclectic art (down to the hand painted chairs and tables) make it feel very very special.
