Visited this restaurant alone on a business trip.
The friendliest people I had mat all day.
Served an ice cold efes beer
had chicken wings to start beautiful
And the mixed meat platter lots of food and all amazing

The waiter brought me over some charcoal pickled onions for free to try they were amazing.

I am here for 2 days and will b back tomorrow to try the fish.

This place has made my trip enjoyable.

The food was mouth watering and authentic and they have an amazing lunch time special of a starter and main course for 10.99.

We all enjoyed our starters and when the mains came out because I have a dairy intolerance and this wasn't on the menu they remade the food and took my starter and main off the bill as a good will gesture which was a welcome surprise.

The staff there are lovely - really attentive without being overbearing and polite. The restaurant had a cosy and relaxed atmosphere and all food was cooked fresh. I will definitely be coming her on a regular basis. Definitely worth the money

I can't fault this restaurant & it had a lot to live up to as we have visited Lark Lane. We were seated quickly & given menu's that were varied. Starters were a mixture of hot & cold with a plethora of vegi options which makes a pleasant change. Meat, fish & veg for the main course made it a very difficult choice. Whilst we were choosing the food we ordered a bottle of Montipluciano which turned out to be lovely and smooth with a burst of blackberries. Eventually we decided, I went for the Falafel & husband chose the Boreks, we also selected a cacik a yoghurt dip with garlic and cucumber. For mains I selected Sebze Guvec, husband had Karisik. The starters came mine was on a bed of hummus which I love, the falafel were light and smooth, the boreks were tasty & full of mince the dip was divine. Bread was also provided which was very very light. The starters were quickly cleared and four accompaniments were put on the table, a salad, a yoghurt dip, a tomato based chilli dip and BBQ onions in a vinegar. We waited a short time and the mains arrived both served with rice. Mine a rich dish of aubergines, okra, onions & tomatos with a feta topping was lovely. Husband had kebabs 4 ways which he said hit the spot. The accompaniments went well with both dishes. We ate everything and were stuffed. Sad to say we couldn't manage all of the bread. I asked for a coffee and husband spotted the Baklava declaring you couldn't visit a Turkish restaurant without sampling the Baklava. I agreed and had a spoonful but it was well worth it. Don't believe bad reviews of this restaurant especially the one saying they rip you off and don't itemise the bill. We had a fully itemised bill and were NOT charged for the bread, accompaniments or coffee. With food & drink of the quality we had and all for £65 including tip we will certainly be returning. Please ensure you put it on your visit list, a lovely restaurant in a busy city

Elif is a family favourite of ours which we visit on an extremely regular basis (especially collections from the childwall five ways restaurant).

I am so happy that I can now have fresh healthy food whilst shopping! The food is gorgeous, lovely staff and extremely welcoming atmosphere!

Definitely be visiting again!!!
