Went to Baran with some friends on a Saturday evening. On entering due to the decor it felt like we had been transported to a restaurant in a Turkish Bazaar (good thing). The restaurant had a cosy and warm atmosphere and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. We ordered a selection of kebabs which came with generous portions of... More

I've ordered several times from the using the online service. The food is great, and they are usually also quick, I'm sorry to leave a bad review, but all the time order from the website is a pain. After a poor user interface and payment process, you receive a confirmation email that says "order confirmed". But then you need to... More

There seem to be almost as many Turkish restaurants as coffee shops these days but if you promise not to tell too many people this one is in my top 5 Very authentic, great friendly service and a set menu of mixed mezze and mixed kebabs served with salad and rice that looks mouthwatering and tastes out of this world....

Our new favourite local restaurant. Totally unassuming from the outside but great food, huge portions, friendly staff, and reasonable value. Definitely recommend.

We ordered take away or delivery and it's always been good! Portions are generous enough, food is always good and always served with vegetables. the only negative thing is that they should improve the website and online ordering. Maybe would be better to add picture of the food for people not familiar with middle eastern food (like me).

We often stop by here on way through to visit family in London or when I'm around town with work! Have been coming for nearly 10 years now and absolutely love it! We often just get takeaway to bring back to Bury St Edmunds where it's not possible to get such high quality Turkish food and they very kindly package... More

This is a cool place, with national design and lots of bric-a-brack. It is actually quite nice to be somewhere that looks like a Southern Med / Turkish place as opposed to the more standard-looking places. The menu won't surprise you - they have all the staples of a Turkish restaurant, but the potions are generous and the meat is... More
