Made two visits in one week and was impressed on both occasions. From the moment you step through the door you are greeted by the smiling friendly staff, with the friendly manner continuing through to the end of your dining experience. The food is colourful and flavoursome, with the mild Turkish herbs and spices. I can definitely recommend the Kofte... More

Best Mediterranean meal I've had outside of Istanbul. Read online reviews and decided to come here for dinner. So glad I did. Sunday night and a $25 Special of app and entree or dessert and entree. I ordered the calamari and the mixed dinner of lamb, chicken and kofte. The calamari were good, served on rocket greens with an aioli.... More

Very good food, drinks , service. Found on Trip Advisor. Prices reasonable with excellent service despite a capacity crowd. Staff very friendly, food quite good as were their cocktails and wines. The later surprised me for a small Mediterranean restaurant. Recommend reservations. Belly dancer was an added plus.

My husband and I came here on a Sunday and got a deal with an appetizer and dinner entree for pretty cheap. We got the sampler plate of everything and it was SO GOOD! Unfortunately the appetizer platter was better than the actual food, but the food was still delicious and the drinks were very reasonably priced.

Staff was friendly and helpful with questions about the menu. The food was tasty and came out quickly. The grilled chicken was especially delicious. Would return.

Lovely service and delicious food. A really good deal on Sunday for friends catching up over good food and a few laughs. Well worth a visit and a gem to find even with the construction happening out front.

We had a most delightful and memorable dinner at Cafe Midnight Express in Auckland which specialises in Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine. After an appetizing glass of Turkish Apple Tea - we ordered Turkish Cuisine - and - all the dishes were superb - Doner Kebab, Fish and Vegetarian Moussaka were all very delicious. There is a good selection of excellent... More
