We visited this restaurant on a Friday night as a party of 11. The place was pretty busy so due to our party size we were placed in a sort of annex, situated a short distance away from the main eating area - to be truthful it could have been warmer. Service could have been more attentive too but I... More

This is a little middle eastern gem in George. Well worth a visit. The food is great and quite authentic. Who would have thought you could have Turkish coffee in George!

We went for dinner without booking and the staff very kindly juggled a few bookings and found a table for us even though they were fully booked. Servings are large, Baklava is divine and bookings are essential. Well worth a visit!

I can't put my finger on what didn't make this a very good experience. It was very dark where we sat, and during the day that's not ideal. Prices are good and the pub lunch specials a bargain. We opted for the Sultan's Stew which my husband said was pretty tasteless. I had two Tapas, the Fish Cakes which were... More

Visited this restaurant with my wife and a friend. I had the meat trio something and it was absolutely amazing. My wife had the mango curry which was just as good. Friendly waiters, nice atmosphere and very reasonably priced.

We took a chance and arrived without making a reservation. Luckily, there was one table available. The staff were friendly, the vibe was intimate, and the food was amazing. I had the lamb and yoghurt stew, and my wife had the mango and chicken curry. The food arrived promptly, and was served neatly. We finished our evening with a dessert... More

You really do get what you pay for at this restaurant, especially if you're looking for something different from the usual burger, pizza or steak restaurant. Any lamb dish will blow you away! One of my favourites in George.

We went there for the Thursday ribs. While the food is great and the atmosphere is very nice, the service was very disappointing.
