“Great Value and Nice Food”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Went here twice whilst staying near the restaurant and found it very good value serving very nice food.

As most restaurants they serve free balon bread which was very good. The little unique touch for their free offering is the black olive puree which although an acquired taste was really nice and went well with the bread.

They offer a two course Indian/Chinese special menu at 15TL that tasted better than our local takeaway The hot and spicy soup and sweet and sour chicken dishes were excellent.

For 20 TL you get a special offering three courses. I had garlic mushrooms, ottoman chicken and cheesecake and at £6.80ish was amazing value for money and all three courses were really nice and well presented.

The service was excellent and very prompt (even when really busy) and chat to you like friends (not guests)

If you want good food and are on a budget, Friar Tucks is the place for you!

“a LONG wait for our food!!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We read a lot of reviews on this place and on our first night out went straight to Friars Tuck, it was very busy being a Saturday night, when the waiter came to take our order the chef was there too and he said they were busy but our food would be served in in 35 min, we were happy to just sit back and have a drink while we waited, and waited in the end it took 1 hour and 30 Min!!!
The table opposite us had the same problem too but if they were that busy they should not promise to deliver if they cant keep to the time. We were getting annoyed and trying to get their attention was hard they kept ignoring us as they new we would complain. When the food finally arrived it was nice but by now we were not in the mood for it and our children were tired.
Its a shame really as the menu looked good but for the rest of our holiday we did not go back, they should have come up to apologise and offer a drink on the house while we waited to make up for it not ignore us.
