Such a cute place, nice and homely. The chefs are amazingly organised and food is always quick to arrive. Have been here a few times over the years and have never had a bad meal here. Our waitress seemed distracted but otherwise a great night, thanks.

We had the 13 year old's family birthday here. Excellent for all ages. Excellent food. It is a little bit cramped but it is only for a short time.

I've been coming here now for 4 or so years everytime I am in Wellington or region. The food is superb, service super quick, amazingly priced and excellent choices for those of a vegetarian persuasion (not me). I will always have dinner or lunch here once per visit to the area.

This is a lovely busy cafe with friendly staff. We were served quickly with a variety of yummy Turkish dishes. Really good value as all the mains are $20 or less. To be recommended. The garlic bread is superb.

We have eaten here regularly as it is a consistent experience. It's casul and the food is generous and good value. We like the loaded plates of healthy turkish food.
