Visited for lunch one afternoon. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The coffees we had after our meal were especially nice, some of the best I've ever tasted! Thank you so much for a lovely dining experience, will definitely be back soon!

The new extension has provided much needed extra space, but works were on going while we were there and dust, drilling noises etc interrupted our whole meal. Service was friendly and our starter platter which was good, came promptly but after that they seemed to want to keep us there! I'd like yo say they had forgotten us but the... More

This was our 1st visit to this restaurant and really enjoyed it and would return. The restaurant gets quite busy so I would recommend booking. We ordered the mixed kebab sharer to start with and it was the highlight of the meal. Lovely flavours and fresh bread. Our mains were very good too, but my only small complaint was the... More

My sister and I are researching the sixties in Liverpool and had been to Woolton to see some Beatles connections. It was such a cold day and so before heading back to the city centre we found this delightful cafe bar and were treated to a lovely hot chocolate and warm chocolate cake with cream which was one of the...

Recently visited this restaurant, delicious food, plentiful, authentic and beautifully presented. Love what they've done with the extension, lovely Turkish decor and very cozy. Nice atmosphere, a really lovely place for a meal. Would definitely recommend.

We were looking for a small cafe just to pass some time, but we were lucky enough to happen upon Istanbul! From the greeting when we walked in the door to the amazing service and the well-presented, amazingly tasty food, this place had us impressed. For a great lunch, try the lamb burger! It's fantastic! My 10-year old keeps asking... More

Visited on Saturday night with my husband for dinner. The new extension is lovely. The food is to die for. We are following a slimming plan at the moment there was so much choice to keep as on track. Also lots of choice for those who are not. The staff were very helpful and the owners are lovely. We will... More

We were supposed to go to Lark Lane but had a Sat Nav malfunction and had to improvise. Soooo glad we found this place they managed to fit us in even though we hadn't booked. The staff were very friendly and atmosphere was good, the food was even better. All four of us totally enjoyed the meal, food was very... More

I haven't been here in a couple of months and visited this Saturday for some dinner. The restaurant has had significant improvements and have extended considerably. The place looks absolutely fantastic. The service and the food is still incredible too. Top marks!
