I have been here before and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant on Sydney Rd in Coburg.
The service is lovely ..caring but not overbearing. The food is absolutely fresh and cooked perfectly.
Love a glass of Uladag ( Turkish soft drink in lemonade or orange) The mixed skewers were sensational!
Prices all very reasonable.
Well worth a visit.

Thank kayeuna

My family and I were invited by a few friends to this restaurant and to be quick and concise, we really enjoyed ourselves. For a more detailed review, keep reading.

Parking was easy, not in front, you would have to be very lucky to get that, but there were plenty of empty spaces in side streets and a few minutes walk is not a bother.

We went on a Saturday night and they have a fixed menu but on request or because someone on our table was very persuasive we were given the normal weekly menu. Anyway the food was delicious. It didn't come fast but we were not in a hurry and chatted without becoming impatient. The skewers, both chicken and lamb, were the nicest, they went lovely with the rice.

We ate for about two hours and at 9 pm the belly dancing started. The dancer engaged the audience very well and really brought the place to life. The live band - two people - had been playing since we got there and had kept a nice atmosphere all evening.

After the belly dancer left the audience got up on the dance floor and everyone really enjoyed themselves with the live music. The night had a few problems but I have to give 5 stars as the best things made us forget any small niggles.

Thank you for an enjoyable night.

Pinarbasi was amazing, the tastiest turkish food I've ever had. Meat was juicy and tender, bread and dips delicious and fresh the chilli dip in particular was so good we wanted to take some home! Service was fine and staff were super friendly even with our 2 year old, and there was a musician there who played a harp looking thing who sung in different languages who was very talented. Thanks for a lovely visit pinarbasi!

Family run Turkish restaurant with reliably good food, prompt service and friendly staff. We keep coming back because this place is so comfortable and the food is freshly prepared and very good. Great value for money.
