The food was absolutely divine. We had the Turkish banquet and every dish was fresh, beautifully presented and packed full of flavour. The lamb cutlets were melt-in-the-mouth delicious. The service and coffee were exemplary. Thanks Dylan and staff, we can't wait to come back!

We have been to this restaurant some years ago and decided to go again for our catch up with friends. Our friends hadn't been to this restaurant before but liked the food and were happy with our restaurant choice. We also liked our meal and were glad that the food was as good as our last visit. We made the... More

We tried this the day and found it to be surprisingly good. I say that because neither of us had ever tried the cuisine. We had the Mixed Grill and found the flavours much to our liking. Will definitely put this one on my to do again list.

I've been a regular here for some years. It has really well cooked, innovative Middle Eastern food. I highly recommend this for a good night out. The only negative is that it can be noisy at times.

A very busy place on a Friday night but the food was superb. The banquets were extensive and flavoursome. Service was excellent. A great place to visit and enjoy the cuisine.

A varied menu with some different dishes from other middle eastern restaurants. The shared platter of meat was very well presented and cooked. Service very good. I don't usually have dessert but we all tried something on the menu and were pleasantly surprised. Very reasonably priced.

We particularly liked the sizzing prawn hotplate,the Hellim and fig, Jajik (cucumber dip) and the Wild Za'taar dip. For mains (again we shared) and the ones... More

We had the one of the house banquets and this was a serious amount of delectable varieties of cuisine from their chef. Customers are made to feel that they are valued and the service is excellent. Maybe it was Xmas but guess that bookings are a good idea for this very popular venue.
