Visited here on a cold November night at the start of the week. Restaurant was pretty quite and we were offered a table for 2 which was a bit exposed, though we asked if we could move into a comfy booth and we were allowed. Thankfully we had a bit of heat off the radiator under the table, but it was a little on the chilly side, no doubt due to the space between the front glass doors.
We ordered 2 starters and 2 mains and we were given a large complimentary Turkish pide (a thin crispy naan bread), olives and butter to munch on while we waited. My hubby hated his starter which was 4 small tasteless crispy falafel which he struggled with. Luckily his adana kebab was very tasty. Though it came with a ridiculously small thin flap of peta bread and a ice-cream scoop of rice!!! For me my starter of Borek (feta cheese and spinach in filo pastry) was gorgeous and a good sized portion. Hubby had one due to his poor starter. However I wasn't so lucky with my main of Mantarli Guvek ( chicken, mushroom and veg casserole) which was pretty watery and lacking in flavour and was like a soup sized portion. In fact it tasted like a tomato, veg and chicken soup. It came with an ice-cream scoop of rice, some salad and garnish, though I was pretty much still hungry afterwards as was my husband, so we had to snack when we came home, and remember we were given the pide to start us off.
It came to around £36 which is about normal for us, but it was bad value as the portions in general were quite ridiculously small. Doubt we'll return as we have had great Turkish food elsewhere and in the country itself. So this visit was pretty inauthentic and disappointing for us.
