“Turkish food a la George”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Kafe Serefe is OK for George standard, but being lovers of the Turkish kitchen as we know it from Turkey and the rest of Europe, their food is not that exciting.
The service was generally ok. The red wine was lukewarm and gained a lot by adding a couple of ice cubes.

Visit for variation - not for the unique experience of the Turkish kitchen.

“Turkish Delight”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

When we arrived they gave us some home made turkish delight, delicious. They had a real belly dancer as well. Good food selection and not all Turkish so suited for a group like us.

“Turkish delight ...”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The restaurant portrays an interesting culture with traditional Turkish dishes and rituals to experience. Being welcomed with sweetened rose-water and Turkish delights to clean the palate is a special surprise. The belly-dancing evenings really adds a little spice to the evening and the decorations and staff dress is traditionally Turkish with jewel-like colors swamped by lovely flavors of perfumes and good food. The menu is interesting and the food very tasty - and the overall atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. Have some bad service experiences on a few occasions, but nothing so serious that would put me off from visiting again.
