We stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking for a bite to eat last night, the restaurant was full a sign that it must be good...despite that they welcomed us in and within 5 mins we had a table overlooking the bay. The food was all fresh and super tasty, and the house red was delicious. This combined with the constant... More

I can honestly say this is the worst meal I have ever experienced, no flavour , no presentation , poor quality ingredients. I would not recommend this restaurant to any one. Such a shame spoilt our friends Birthday night out . Absolute crap!!

I appreciate the owners for successfully undertaking the challenge of recreating the genuine Anatolian cuisine in Cardiff and providing the best service with their friendly and experienced staff. Special thanks to the chef and Nevzat bey. I highly recommend the lentille soup, lamb kofte and baklava. Good Turkish coffee but could be better with Okka Coffee Machine. I would certainly... More

Came here Good Friday for a meal with family. Was slightly weary due to some of the reviews but very pleasantly surprised! Seated straight away and drinks order taken, when the waiter came back he advised us to order then as a large party had come in which we thought was very thoughtful! Food was very very well cooked, and... More

Went to this restaurant Easter Sunday evening with my husband for a romantic meal. Lovely position overlooking the bay. Very polite and attentive service. We ordered fish platter for our main which was the tastiest I have ever had, with a good variety of fish and everything cooked to perfection. Loved it! Shame it's too far from Essex!

Vsted twice with family and friends, as the staff are so friendly and helpful. The menu has an excellant selection with a children's menu as well. We had our dog with us so we were able to sit on their balcony and enjoy the views over the bay.

For our first time we tried the £24 banquet. It was a taste of Turkey. Beautifully cooked mezzo folllowed by a mixed grill which was moist well cooked and delicious. Just enough room for a taster plate of dessert. Very polite and attentive waiters. Lovely atmosphere- would recommend to anyone visiting Cardiff Bay

Popped in as alternative to the currently closed all you can eat. Oh, how we were so glad it was and we came here. The food was faultless (2 course meal for £9.90 - very filling), and service was on point. Great views from here too. You could sit anywhere and have a great view. One we'll be coming back... More

This is one of the worst kebabs I have ever had ! I went there on the recommendation of another restaurant manager in town. I would never go back ! You are not treated well if you are one of their countryman. So, the preparation of the food is based upon your ethnic origin, not upon you as a person!... More
