I would have given 5 *, but our waitress was quite rude and as we were waiting at the table for the rest of the party to arrive. She said we shouldn't be sitting at the table, and I said he were shown to the table by another waitress, and she said that the witness was new!
Anyway, the food is really very good, huge portions at excellent prices. The wine prices are also the lowest I have seen anywhere, and a good selection as well. The homemade Turkish Delight is very nice

Booked a table and when we arrived the restaurant was full but our table was reserved! Friendly waiter and good service. Wide variety of food and drinks available but they specialise on Turkish style food. I ordered the trio meat dish - 2 lamb mince patties and 2 lamb cuts and a kebab. The waiter asked me how I would like the meat done and I asked for medium - hoping that because they asked that the chef knows how to prepare the meat. Our friends - longtime customers and our son living in George the last 18 months warned that it is big portions of great food. When the food arrived I can attest to that!! My wife and son each had a mint lamb burger. Our friends had different chicken orders and all looked great and tasted great. Sorry to say my meat was more than well done!!! It did not tasted great at all. I told the waiter to inform the kitchen and she immediately wanted to replace it by I was hungry and did not want to make a scene. Just before we left the waiter came back and brought me the whole meat part of the order - medium done to take with home. This was the come back of the night! The next day after heating the meat I could enjoy how that meal is suppose to taste. Just a shame that the kitchen was not up to standard the first time! In spite of this we would visit this restaurant in the future when in George.

What an eating experience we had at this place!! Had the lamb and yogurt stew and the lamb curry and both were amazing! The portions are big and good value for money.

Staff is really attentive and I like to mention Thandiswa who waited on us. She was smiling all the time and nothing was too much for her. She is a real asset to this restaurant.

Next time I'm visiting George, this place will be at the top of my list.
