The best Turkish I've eaten and I've eaten a few. The owners are amazing always welcoming, go out of their way to make sure we have a good night. Amazing atmosphere. Aberaman/aberdares hidden treasure!

If you haven't been. Go. Immediately. The food is delicious. I took my fiancé there last night as he hadn't been before and he couldn't believe how nice it was. Highly recommend a Chicken beyti. Lovely staff and food is top notch!

Tasty and authentic Turkish food with friendly service. The grilled dishes are prepared over a charcoal grill which gives the food a very good and distinct taste.

Went here tonight with friends and cannot say how much we loved it. Went here last year on a hen and don't know why we waited so long to go back! Amazing food, lovely owner! Well worth a visit!

I was pleased when I phoned this restaurant to see that they did vegetarian meals. We visited early on a Friday evening . I didn't fancy any of the veggie meals on the main menu ( I don't like aubergine ) so I was pleased when the waitress was happy to serve me three hot starters instead of a main... More

Ate here this evening . Booked table for four. The restaurant rather quiet for a Saturday evening and on the chilly side . The food was excellent when it eventually arrived but service definitely needs to be more efficient . Would come here again however as the one waitress was very friendly and warned service might be slow.

A converted pub (The Picton, Aberaman) which now serves Stunning authentic Turkish cuisine, cooked by Turkish people too.!!. The meats are cooked over a charcoal fire in full view of diners. A quaint, very different dining experience that was not only excellent but also quite inexpensive. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Well worth a visit for couples or... More

Quite simply the food is excellent, the owners friendly and the whole place is a pleasure to visit. Aberdare is a void when it comes to places to eat out this is the only place to go and it wouldn't be out of place in a city center. Have the mixed grill and see if you can get through it.
