Went for a nice dinner for the first time at this restaurant. The interior was very modern and well set out. We had the hot and cold platter starter to share, which was well presented and tasted just as nice.

The atmosphere was relaxing and inviting, never once feeling rushed or pushed to get out the door. The main Chicken dishes were well flavoured and went down equally well.

Not to expensive as they have lots of mealtime specials.

Staff were very warm and friendly.

We decided to try this restaurant on Saturday evening having always said we would visit when it opened but having never quite got around to it.

Arriving around 8 pm, the reception was friendly and whilst initially offered a table by the door, this was quickly changed without request by I think the owner who directed the waitress to take us to a table by the window. (this was set for four and we were two). Menus and a request for drinks were quickly provided.

Initially, we were just going to have a main course but having seen the menu decided to have a starter too. We chose 'sucuk' and 'Hellim' both were extremely tasty and served with a delicious warm bread.

For our main course, we decided on a lamb casserole for myself and a lamb sizzler for my partner. Both were hot and well presented with rice and salad. The casserole had plenty of tender lamb pieces with peppers and onion together with a very tasty lamb sauce. The sizzler was as described but my partner felt it lacked a little taste which we solved by adding some of the casserole sauce.

Overall, we really enjoyed the food and the starter and main were such that we didn't feel the need for a sweet. Our waiter though did insist we try some complimentary baklava with our coffee and very tasty it was too!

I am a stickler for good service and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff, no undue pressure to order but good timings for delivery of the meals which gave a nice flow to our evening. The restaurant has contemporary colourful furnishings and an excellent atmosphere.

Definitely value for money, £46 for two starters, two mains, a glass of wine and a pint of beer plus two coffees.

Nice touch on the way out where we were thanked for our custom and with this being very convenient to us, we will definitely return, hopefully not before too long and will bring some friends.

Called here at 3.00 in the afternoon had the 3course lunch. Garlic bread to start,we had this with a nice bottle of malice. The three course lunch to follow , I had the hot starter which is a mix of the starters of the main menu.husband had hummus and olives. These were very good. Main was lamb steaks for me and turquoise chicken for him it was served with rice and salad for both. Lamb didn't really taste of lamb but husband liked the chicken. The rice was a bit of a waste as we hardly touched it. Service was great and food was great but the waitress could've spoke more and a smile would have been good.

Came yesterday with my Mother and Sister in law. The food was so delicious and beautifully presented. The £7.50 two course menu is amazingly good value with loads of choice - plenty of choice for veggies too. Really pretty and chic inside and service quick, friendly and efficient. Will be definitely going here again with the rest of my family. We had a lovely time. Thankyou.
