We came in on the off chance and needed a table for 9. Although the restuarant was busy the found space for us and were quick and attentive. Flat bread and dips were delicious, every ones food arrived at the same time and every person said how lovely their choice was. Great food, well worth a visit and best turkish... More

The mains were all very good and very large portions as well. When it says kebab with salad on the menu, it means a whole dish of mixed salad as a side, not a couple of leaves of lettuce as in lots of other places. On the negative side, the starters were all quite bland, plus the service was not... More

Very attentive service. Bread and dips came very quickly. Starters followed and mains shortly after. Service was faultless and polite, free baklava to for desert. Whole Bill Inc drinks for 4 £86.00 to was excellent value considering amount of food we had - all were stuffed! Falafel slightly dry so 4* otherwise all food excellent.

I go there at least once a month! Waiters always friendly and quick. Food is delicious. I love the humus! I usually go for a chicken or fish kebab which comes with a big fresh salad. Good prices, nice wine. I love the restaurant!

I visited this restaurant tonight as working in area and hotel recommended it. Having lived in Turkey and visited the north side of Cyprus many times in my youth I have high standards and these we met with flying colours. The food was authentic and cooked to perfection. Full of flavour and very filling. Excellent value for money in fact... More

Save a trip to Istanbul and go there for the best - and real - Turkish food you will find outside of Turkey. I went back there because I had had an amazing first time a couple of years ago and this second time was even better. What can I say. The food is so good that I even eat... More
