Very clean and comfortable and staff friendly and efficient. Good choice on menu- can recommend the meze with borec, was delicious. It’s good to have something different to eat rather than the usual sandwiches etc. Would recommend a visit!

I had a lovely lunch here with my SO. Fresh authentic Turkish food in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. With plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. The filo dishes are lovely and crunchy and the salads looked wonderful, I look forward to trying them.
