Very friendly host welcomed us to this place on Queensgate in the centre of Inverness. We had the messe which was excellent and the main course which was OK. My lamb was very spicy perhaps too much for me. The service was good and the wine excellent. I would recommend you try this place if you want something a little... More

We hadn't been for a while but chose to have a recent birthday meal there. The host Mustafa was larger than life as ever, attentive and entertaining. The food was every bit as good as we remembered - fresh, hot, plentiful and well presented. Recommend the mezzo for 2.

Happy host and great food equals happy diners. Tasty, awesome service and good atmosphere. No reason not to recommend and no reason not to try.

Dining on my own and passed by Aspendos, it looked interesting and there were a good number of people inside which is usually a good sign. Warm welcome from Mustapha (the owner), shown to a table and the menus explained to me. As soon as my meal and drinks had been ordered, a basket of warm bread and dips (free)... More

This was a bit disappointing. The Devore is nice enough but the selection of wine was limited. The falafel appetizer was chewy, the swordfish was mostly dark meat and oily, my vegetable entree was nothing special, and the baklava dessert was mushy, probably sitting around for much too long. This was not a particularly good meal and I suggest you... More

Twice I have used this Turkish restaurant anded twice I have arrived late. The owner, Mustapha has been brilliant both times and was happy to provide me wth 'off-menu' food...beautiful lamb and Turkish salad and dips. Nice man, great character and very accommodating.

We'd passed Aspendos many times but had never ventured in. Having the May day holiday to ourselves my girlfriend suggested we visit (her treat, I know very un-chivalrous of me) and also having had a recommendation to visit by a colleague who by the sounds of it is in pretty much every week we decided to to make go. The... More

We booked to have our wedding day dinner and we were over the moon at the food and welcome. Restaurant was very quiet (6pm) but it was terrible weather and a Monday. We picked from the group menu (£21 each) and we're both happy with the food and the time it took to come out. Food was fresh and tasty.... More
