I was part of a party of six people eating here last Saturday 18th March, my wife and I are repeat customers and have been coming to this wonderful restaurant since Guven took over control. The restaurant last Saturday was extremely busy, with a couple of large parties in attendance, this however did not, in any way distract from the... More

I just love the new decor, it is so authentic. There's always little hic-ups when altering an establishment, but we have to look at the bigger picture. The restaurant became more then double its size, but their kitchen is still the old small one, BUT they already building up a new kitchen which should be ready any day. So making... More

We often go to istanbul restaurant, however last night (Saturday) we called in at 9.55 and asked for a table for two. We could clearly see at least two empty tables, we were told that as we hadn't made a reservation we could not have a table they were too busy. Dissapointed we left but assumed the empty tables were... More

I have been here many times before the expansion. Could never fault it. But now I'm sitting here and have been waiting nearly 2 hours for my mains. As for the starters well I ordered the mushrooms and the prawns, the mushroom came chopped into small bits and they expect me to consider this as a portion, terrible. The prawns... More

Found this little gem on TripAdvisor and it truly delivered. We visited mid-week, not having made a reservation, and were lucky to get a table, as the place was packed. The restaurant is attractively laid out and has a really good ambience. Waiting staff were excellent – fast, efficient and personable. Meals were delicious and all the hot food was... More

First visit since the refurb. Food and service as wonderful as ever. Small plate of chicken wings to share which were excellent and mains just as good and cooked to perfection. Certainly our favourite restaurant in Woolton if not Liverpool

My first visit here. Excellent meal combining a couple of small plates and a main with additional bread dips and salad between 2. It compares very well with other Turkish/Greek restaurants nearby. It's recent refurb appears to have excluded the kitchen area which is now a little small to cater for the additional covers. Faz our waiter was superb very... More

Really love this restaurant, having been many times before. Tonight was the first time since the refurb and we were really looking forward to it. The place is lovely really tastefully done. I had been looking forward to having asparagus chicken, which I did but they have changed it. Instead of getting chicken which used to be coated in something... More
