I visited this restaurant last night with 3 friends and can't recommend it enough. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the KÜLBASTI and it was excellent, the lamb was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. And to make it even better, the service was excellent, and the meal was very good value.

We have been coming here for years and we always have the mixed hot and cold Meze. It's very good. The owner is from Turkey so that's the influence. Decor is perhaps a little dated but that does take away from the quality of the food. Very reasonably priced and well deserving of a visit.

I took my very fussy 15 years old daughter here last Saturday for a meal. The menu was varied and we chose the swordfish steak in a lemon and herb sauce. It was a hit with us both a very enjoyable meal with excellent service. Definitely return soon

In town, so taxi will charge what they can get away with, suggest ask price before ordering. A spit and saw dust place, but owner / manager made a huge effort. Average food 25£ per person with a mix of adults and children. Food is good and is quick. Good service.

Been going to this restaurant for years. Had a very enjoyable meal. We shared a mix of starters and fish as a main course. All very tasty and service attentive. We tried a yoghurt drink and although it wasn't to our taste the waitress explained how it was made. We would all go back but avoid the yoghurt drink!

Thank Michelle C
