The first time we ate there last week we ordered lamb shank. The meat was really difficult to get off the bone. In the end I gave up. The rest of the meal was lovely. So I hope it was a one off. We gave them another try last night and we were not disappointed with our choice. It's a lovely cafe and the staff are very helpful and polite. We managed to get a table last night even though it was Friday and we were supposed to book. The first time we went it was on a Tuesday and no need to book. Couldn't find the phone number anywhere see we took a chance. Might try the takeaway next time.

What a wonderful restaurant - and within walking distance of home. 5 of us ate there - all thoroughly enjoyed different dishes. The liver starter was wonderful! Staff are very polite and attentive. Very busy - we went on a Saturday evening, but did not feel rushed. Lots of people coming in for take-aways. The food is cooked where you can see, so the standard is great. Looking forward to eating there again soon.

My first all 5 star review. I had the pleasure of eating here last Friday and i really enjoyed it. The hot mezee starter was freshly cooked accompained by piles of hot fresh turkish bread. The main (another shared dish) was perfectly cooked with great seasoning. Plenty of quality turkish beer and raki also helped make a great evening. Staff were busy but attentive and maybe could do with an extra waitress but that is my only critism and have they have only just opened i am sure that this will be resolved shortly. Highly recomended and a great start to the turn around of Elm Park.
