We always enjoy the authentic turkish cuisine and the divine pizzas (which are made in clear sight). Dining amidst imported furniture and accessories makes the experience more interesting and unusual. I only wish the servers were friendlier and more eager to help. Our party of eight had no complaints about the food. We devoured the appetizers - hummus, eggplant, red bean and cheese plate (though we had to ask for more pita bread). Everybody enjoyed their entrees - three different pizzas (classic, lamb and pepperoni) chicken and sea bass. We always look forward to the sorbets served inside the fruit's frozen shell (lemon, mango and coconut). However, we were constantly having to wave our waitress over to either order, refill our water glasses or replenish the pita bowl. Don't let the poor reviews stop you from visiting this very cool restaurant/store because the food is great.

My husband and I decided to try The Depot Friday night.Everything was an A!We had the lamb and parseley pita(pizza),lamb kofta(sp),and 2 salads which was more than enough.I loved the atmosphere.The open hearth,the antique tables and antiques surrounding us made for an inviting setting.I ended the meal with a Turkish coffee-excellent.We can't wait to go back and try some other things on the menu like the sea bass.Wish we'd had room for dessert!

This place was recommended to us by people who worked int he outlet shops nearby. It is the cutest place where you can shop for wonderful original pieces for your home and also eat some delicious turkish delights. They also have a wood fire oven that makes delicious pizza's!
Great spot with warm ambience perfect for brunch or to fuel up after shopping the nearby machester outlets. The food is of natural organic ingredients and delicious!

This place has great pizza and the decor is very interesting. The staff is a little rough around the edges but considering how good the food is, its worth taking a trip. It is interesting to see how a restaurant could be in the middle of a antique furniture store but they managed to do it. I would return for the Pizza, its incredible.

Wonderful restaurant in the middle of an antique furniture store. Sounds crazy but the food is not. The wood fire oven pizza is to die for. Try the wild mushroom pizza. It was fantastic. The bosnian-turkish food was unusual and delicious. Veal and lamb patties with roasted tomato and pepper was fun to eat and delicious. Ilove this place for lunch. Try it and you are sure to return.
