Nice atmosphere and frendly service. Good range of Turkish options. Turkish Lavas bread, Pide (Turkish Pizza), risotto and lamb chops are particularly good. Very child friendly too.

The restaurant environment is very welcoming and the staff are helpful. They offer a two course lunch menu at a fixed price of £8.80 and its very good value. We both had falafel for... More

Stunning food, stunning service! I didn't get the name of the man running front of house but he did an exceptional job. Food timing and quality was spot on, reasonably priced and no shabby portions! Will certainly return, 10 out of 10.

Have been here a couple of times and it has been good - unfortunately not today! I brought a friend and she ordered the Greek salad. I think they should re-name it Greek leaves! Hardly any feta cheese and only 4 halves of time cherry tomatoes around the side with slithers of cucumber and red pepper. Hardly constitutes a salad!... More
