Great service. Great tasting food. Prompt. Reasonable price. Would definitely make a return visit and take friends. Turkish coffee is a must for anyone who's not tried it.

Love this restaurant and the food. Its great value for money and the food is very good. We had the turkish bread a dips for starters and while there was a little mix up with dips to start with, once we got the dips we'd ordered they didn't disappoint - so yummy. We brought our own wine and wine glasses were brought without delay. The rest of the food was great and the price was very reasonable. Its not fancy, but the service is efficient and friendly and the food is great.

Food was delicious and they even gave us an extra dip to try with no charge. However, we were seated right at the back and after some time, the waitress forgot about us and we ended up going to the front to pay the bill. But, overall, a good experience.

Yummy food and the added bonus of some belly dancing as entertainment. We had the banquet which was way more good than we needed, but great to try a range of dishes
