We have eaten at this restaurant many times , the food is consistently very good as is the whole ambiance of the place .

The staff are very unobtrusive and knowledgeable, it gets really busy at weekends , so best to book !

One of my favourite places to eat out !

We have eaten here several times each over the past few years. I did a stag night here 3 years ago which was well catered for. Tonight, there were five of us. Three were from the USA who know a thing or two about BBQ food and they were very impressed. Well worth a visit. The set sharing platter for 6 was a lot of food for five of us!

We were staying at the Travelodge in Duke Street, came out of the door to look around the Quay area, immediately my eyes lit up, as did our party of 4, Turkish food, probably a good idea to book for a Saturday evening.
Well now we were so disappointed, there were no vacant tables for that evening. The food and the aroma was so beautiful that we were all 'gutted' that we could not sample the cuisine. Must come back to Ipswich soon and book before we arrive.

We had 6 of us sit down for a birthday dinner. We love Turkish cuisine, and have had quite a few in other restaurants in the East of England. We usually like a hot Meze, usually sharing 6 or 7 dishes, that usually come up quite large, and feed two of us very well. Not here.

Despite other people in our party ordering mains, at no time had anyone questioned why 2 adult males were ordering Meze, that was one plate, with one slice of halloumi each, one slice of meat each and a small bowl of garlic mushrooms. For £19, this was surprising, to say the least. Realising what they had done, the staff came over to explain the menu, and that we got what we ordered. Everyone else had finished their last mains before we got ours. No apology came, and the staff were dismissive afterwards.

The food was delicious when we did eventually get everything, and everyone in our party was very pleased with the quality and cook of our food. No fault there at all. Delicious even to the starters! Everything cooked to perfection.

The very noisy ambience of such a small restaurant, meant we were shouting across the table to be heard. This with the staff and their treatment of us, means we will not be returning. As I say, the food was great, but the overall experience for us left a lot to be desired.
