“Top Notch Turkish Restaurant”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

This was my second visit to this restaurant, this time as part of a group of four to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The atmosphere is lively and there is a real middle eastern feel. The evening started with the complementary puffed up pide (bread) with tasty and interesting accompaniments. We ordered an excellent Merlot and then a range of starters, main courses and desserts from friendly and efficient waiting staff. We shared the excellent dishes between us which I understand is a feature of Turkish Meze dining. We really like the fresh and interesting flavours and a particular feature is seeing the food prepared at the charcoal grill whilst siting at the table . Sharing the various dishes is a really good way to enjoy the delicious and varied flavours and adds to the dining experience. Eating at this atmospheric restaurant is highly recommended.

“Yet again - a special evening!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Whether you are celebrating or just having a quiet meal this place offers excellent, friendly service and freshly cooked food. The complementary flat bread and feta/butter/olives before the main meal is a bonus that never fails to bring smiles to anyone's face that has not previously experienced Meze. Such a personal feel to the service, it is where I go for any celebration :)

“Big, butch and bullish flavours, parachute bread and MEAT.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner went and ordered with our stomachs so got the biggest thing. It paid off, it was £15 ish but it was really worth it. The spicing was good, deep flavours with good hunks of meat with a nicely sharp dressed salad to cut through those butch and bullish flavours and textures. Also comes with this puffed up parachute looking bread thing which was cooked fresh in the clay oven which was DELICIOUS. You must go, don't be put off by the location. One critique would be that the tables were close together so was an air of uncomfortable and unintentional eavesdropping on one another's tables kinda vibe, but I don't really care about that because I'm quite nosey.

“Very nice but over priced”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Tha food was lovely but the amount you get for the price you pay was terrible, i paid £13.50 for my main course and the portion size of it could have been a starter. Overall the food was nice but they need to sort out there portion sizes.
