I'm glad we booked as it was busy all evening. The food was extremely good, and service very fast especially as all tables were taken. 1 of our party is vegetarian and was impressed with the choice available. Already planning return visit.

This restaurant was recommended, and rightly so. Easy to miss from the street it is intimate but that adds to the atmosphere. The service was excellent and appeared effortless. The food was beautifully presented and the flavoures subtle.

The visit was to celebrate a 75th birthday, an evening that will be remembered with affection.

We have already booked to celebrate my birthday at the end of September 2017.

Highly recommended.

Really had a great evening here, a fabulous addition to Hockley. Before we used to go to Rayleigh up the road to eat at Bogaz but there really is no need now to venture out of the village.

It is a very small set up, but that makes it better as you feel like you are getting lots of attention and that nothing gets forgotten or missed. The staff were very attentive and polite.

Main meal was really tasty - but the chocolate fudge cake dessert was the best, Will definitely visit again!

Bora served our party of 4 on Thursday 17th Aug 2017 it was a busy restaurant all the tables where occupied. Book to avoid disappointment. Exceptional value! We all enjoyed the experience and can't wait to return.

From beginning to end, the experience of our first visit to this small, world-class restaurant was unforgettable. I first called to reserve a table and the person on the phone was very helpful and polite. On arrival the staff greeted us very respectfully and we were seated at a table that had already been set with care and attention to detail. The immediate atmosphere was refreshing, welcoming and charming. Despite the small area and limited tables, the chatter and intimacy of this little venue is not uncomfortable or invasive at all. Our drinks were served promptly and then soon after came our scrumptious starters: IZGARA KANAT (marinated chicken wings) and SIGARA BOREGI (filo pastry filled with feta cheese and herbs). The starters were so delicious that we already knew then that we were in for a real treat when the main dishes arrived. The main course, ISKENDER KEBAB, was a journey to food heaven with a delicately balanced combination of tasty sauce, meat, yoghurt and a very interesting type of bread that you wouldn't even know was in the dish. Apart from all this extremely satisfying food, the service too was excellent and it was not difficult to see that these guys care about their customers. They've only been open for about 3 months and you will certainly have to book well in advance at busy times. Definitely a new local favourite that I will visit many times in the future with great delight! Highly recommended.
