The restaurant was quiet, only one other couple. We were warmly welcomed and food and service were both excellent. Neither of the staff had English as their first language, hardly surprising in a Turkish restaurant. It took a little while to explain "slimline" and my diabetic wife's need for this, but great effort was made and eventually the problem was... More

This was a nice quiet place to relax during the busy shopping days. The staff were friendly, it wasn't noisy or crowded and we had a chance to experience the coffee rather than drink it and go. Pleasant atmosphere. Nice desserts.

We went here last night 15 family members. The main course was horrible! We had to send back 4 of the chicken shish (we ordered 7) as it was raw in the middle. The Ada kebab (kofte) was really salty. The lamb chop in the mixed kebab was under cooked. When we complained the waitress said we should have asked... More

The venue is fantastic: very scenic, low lighting, romantic. The staff were friendly and polite but knew when to approach. The food was amazing but incredibly rich and salty.

We were a little unsure about eating here as there was only one table occupied when we arrived, although a few others came in later. However the food was very good, served quite hot, and was traditional Turkish food with generous servings. We were very glad we decided to dine there. Worth trying for something a little different.

Cosy atmosphere and very delicious food at reasonable prices. Tried the mixed meze and mixed grill. Definitely recommendable if you are a first-timer in Turkish food and want to taste a little of everything. Smiling, friendly staff.
