Lovely food and service and reasonable prices for London. They had a guitarist on who played a song for my mum as the waitress overheard her talking about it - very touching. Would recommend this restaurant if you like good Greek or Turkish food

Six of us had an amazing meal here to celebrate a 50th birthday. We had party menu 3. The food was amazing. So much of it too. We all left there very full!! Perfectly located for a meal after the Jack the Ripper tour.

The food here was delicious and really reasonable. We essentially had a starter and a HUGE lamb shank for £14. Delicious. Great ambience too. Definitely recommend it!
