Went here with my husband, brother and sister in law and had a fantastic meal. The welcome was very friendly and the service was brilliant! The food is amazing! The cold and hot mixed meze were delicious and halfway through the main I was stuffed but didn't want to stop because it was so good!!! Will definitely be returning!!!

They have two fixed menu deals but we decided to choose our own, The food was hot and the tastes of each meal was fantastic. The drinks we found a little expensive but bare-able. We did not... More

A nice restaurant, food is excellent, good prices. Was a fairly long wait for drink order, but starters and main delivered in good time, perhaps need more staff when busy. But food faultless.

After a few visits here I think I may have changed my mind on coming back...the service has always been extremely average and not very personable and the food has always been fairly quick and consistent. This establishment is one of the few places open all day so one reason I chose to take my mother here one weekend as... More

Have walked past this restaurant many times and it's always been so busy, it always smells good. I decided to book a table and so glad I did, what a lovely meal, the menu is incredibly varied and full of authentic Turkish dishes. Everything was freshly cooked and so tasty and generous portions too. I have picked out so many... More

We've recently left Islington (which is blessed with a number of great Turkish restaurants) and are temporarily living in Broadstairs. We always like to try Turkish restaurants wherever we go and came across this on our first night. We have subsequently eaten there again. It's just opposite the railway station, and is about 10 minutes walk from the seafront. Whilst... More

We have just opened in Broadstairs high street and serve a very different style of food, perfect if you fancy a bit of a change to your normal taste. For the couple of days we have been open already, we have had no complants and the plates come back clean and the customers leave very satisfided and full.
