We have visited here a few times for meetings. Amazing food, massive selection of teas and treats, fantastic service and free wifi. Will be back many times I'm sure.

Nice little place, very authentic - they even have shisha pipes for the smokers among you! Good coffee, particularly if you like it STRONG! Tea was nice too, as were the accompanying little sweet bites. Downside was a shower in the sole toilet with, presumably the owner's, Bic razor! Anyway, worth a try if you're in the area and waiting for The Fat Cat or Woolf & Social to open (see separate reviews).

A beautiful cafe which makes you feel as if you are on holiday in Turkey rather than being on the Dereham Road. The woman who served us is quiet but friendly and I was delighted with the Turkish tea served in such pretty pots with glasses and sugar pots that were also very cute!

The food was freshly cooked and portions were extremely large with lots of fresh salad. However I was a little disappointed that the meat was not as tasty or as big a portion as I'd expected and there was a huge portion of heavy boiled rice. This meant the meal was nice and filling but rather bland. It seemed a little expensive because of this. I personally would prefer a smaller portion with more flavour.

I loved the decor, the pretty pots, cups and glasses and the complementary cake with the drink.

Went to this for lunch as work round corner and couldn't believe how nice it was! Outside area was lovely, inside was very traditional to Istanbul. Had Turkish coffee which was authentic and strong! Followed by lamb wrap which was amazing! Prices reasonable. And Turkish delight lush! Worth a try and I'll certainly be going back!
