“Excellent presentation, ditto the dishes”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Three of us went here for lunch, and were graciously received by the owner, who was very helpful with the ordering and timed the delivery of the courses perfectly. The mezze were beautifully presented and delicious, the main courses likewise. All of the ingredients were of impeccable quality and freshness, the lamb was delicious and tender. The only slight drawback for us was that we found the whole meal a little rich and oily, compared with the way we normally eat, though to be fair this is entirely personal - we are older diners and we usually eat very light at home. Bearing that in mind, it was excellent.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

I discovered this place by accident, walking down the rue de Belleville having just reserved a table in the nearby Baratin. I thought it looked charming, and I wasn't disappointed. I had the lunchtime express menu - beautifully presented tarama with tomatoes, cucumber and lightly crisped bread, followed by chicken kebab with rice, potato fondant and salad. I enjoyed it so much I went back yesterday, for my last lunch of the trip, and ordered the Eur27 gourmet menu - again, a beautifully presented starter, of avocado, tarama, tsatsiki and tomato, followed by grilled sea bream, then perfectly ripe melon with vanilla ice cream. Everything tasted great. I can honestly say I haven't enjoyed Greek/Turkish cuisine as much in years. As a bonus, the delightful owner/chef Alain really knows his wine....

“A piece of the Mediterranean in the South China Sea.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were drawn into the restaurant by the wall hung killims, white table linen, silver cutlery and sparkling glasses barely glimpsed through the profusion of outdoor greenery. The mixed message of Greco-Turkish cuisine would probably put off a few Cypriots, but not us.
We had the lunch time express menu which looked expensive when compared to all the surrounding Chinese buffet style restaurants, but turned out to be as much as we could eat.
Houmous, and Tsatiki with piping hot bread followed by chicken skewers and Adana Kebap served with side salad and bulgar wheat, washed down by some very nicely chilled Greek rose wine. It was a shame that we were the only people in the place as the atmosphere would be great and the owner happier, if it were full.
