We were very regular customers at Derwish for at least 6-7 years coming here at least twice a year for the Hari Raya‘s and couldn‘t have enjoyed it more. The people were lovely and forthcoming, coming from south europe myself that was very inviting to...us and the food was amazing. But since the Turkish Manager (very friendly and competent) left the Restaurant it seems to have lost all of its touch. The ambience is completely gone, the food was cold when served and completely tasteless. Very dissapponting and dimmed the mood of our Hari Raya Haji evening. Hope things will change and I wish the Restaurant best of luck in these troublesome COVID-19 times.More

Went to have dinner here. With my family of 7 pax. Pleasant welcome and we seating at outdoor. Waitress is explaining us the food variety and choices. She also try to sell hard the foods in the menu.. Food is nice and delicious. However, waitress...name ERIKA have an attitude problem. While we are still eating and not yet done with our food.. She is trying to clear plates and cups which are still have drinks and food on it! I can’t understand why is there a rush to do clearing. After, we pay the bill that is not CHEAP.. we are still sitting down and have a talk. She asking we to pass all the empty glass and some plates on the table. OMG!! What kind of service are this?!! My sister said we are leaving soon later u can clear pls. Appreciate it. This waitress replied us back ok appreciate it too!! How could u said back to ur customer in rudely manner! Why can’t ur waitress wait for us to go out? What is the rush?? They are like chasing us out. Wat a bad experience in Turkish food.. Poor service!More

Warm welcome for us both and our little boy. Food was delivered very quickly. We had hummus (recommend ordering with a lavash) and the Adana kebab - great combo. Also try the Lebanese coffee. Will come again!

Service is very poor. They took 40 mins to serve after I place the order. Meat was tender but tasteless. Other food were also tasteless . Not expected at all and not at all value for money

It was my friend’s birthday and she was absolutely impressed with the place, a lot of intricacies in the deco, like Florentine mosaic sink, traditional door and of course the beautiful lamps and the singing of happy birthday on Turkish with the drum was the...icing on top. I would definitely revisit this beautiful cafe. Now that we can’t travel, I felt like I was sitting in a cafe in Istanbul. Staff were very warm and friendly too.More

Met friends here, at this Turkish restaurant, did not realize they do not serve alcohol! We had the Mezi Tabagi, the grilled Hallomi, Donner with Humas, Kuzu Pirzola and a sultani Chicken, Food was ok, Service was good.
