“we loved it!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

we went on tuesday, it was quite busy and they had special deals which were 2 courses for £11.95 and 3 for £14.95 (i think as the wine was lovely had abit too much). The food was lovely, the waiter was very good and the atmosphere was fabulous. I will be returning again and would highly recommend the sirloin steak.....yummy!!!! great value aswell!!!! see you again soon love it!!

“great food”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Very tasty food. Lots of well cooked Mediterranean vegetables. There was small mistake in our order but that was rectified with charm.

“The grated carrot was the best bit!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Shop bought hummus, microwaved rice, burnt oven chips and the most oversalted salmon I've ever eaten. Couldn't even eat the lettuce as it was smothered in the cucumber sauce I'd specifically mentioned to the waitress that I dislike. This is my third visit - and definitely my last. The food and service has been bad on each trip. Not even that cheap.

Thank you for your review i am sorry that your visit here wasn't up to standard, i promise you that the hummus is made from scratch and the chips are fried, also we do not have a microwave in our kitchen to re heat bulgur wheat we cook everything fresh on the day.
The salmon is marinated and the chef does add a touch of salt but this is just for taste and should not be over powering and we are quite shocked about this we have never had a complaint about our salmon in the past.
You asked for no cacik (cucumber) on your plate and it came with it on, in busy times blunders like this do happen and all i can do is apologize about that.
we really do try to encourage our customers to let us know straight away if there is a problem with your meals so we can sort this quickly for you as we try to make all our customers happy and always strive to give good customer service. im so sorry as well that you thing we are expensive we do have offers on over the week we do any starter and main course for £12.95 per person from our a la carte menu all day sunday to thursdays and also we do lunchtime offers.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

If you love Turkish food then this is a restaurant you can't miss. We visited for an evening meal and were blown away with the delicious food and friendly service. I would advise you to book, especially in summer as the restaurant was full to the rafters and they were turning customers away. The main course portions are extremely generous with lovely fresh salad, yoghurt and a tasty rice/bulgar wheat accompaniment. We tried some of the specials (lamb was sensational, as was the salmon). The menu is extensive, with hot and cold starters in addition to a raft of main courses. There really is something for everyone here!
