The food was delicious! It was a lot of food for the four of us. The waitress were also very nice. There were many people at the restaurant. I am glad I booked a table for us. The set menu is normally $45 dollars. As it was Tuesday it was just $35!!!
This was my third time here, the first two times were just me and my brother, the third time there was 7 of us. Everyone loved it.. Awesome food, great service. Highly recommend...
Absolutely fabulous food, quiet authentic Turkish cuisine . The service was lovely and friendly. The food was bought out a bit quick, a bit longer between courses would have been nice. Definitely will return
Food is awesome, great ambience. Been there few times and will just keep going. Friendly staff and prompt service. The dips are just yummmmmm. Love the food there n belle dance 💃 is just extra add on top of the nice food
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.
Dip are gorgeous. My hubby had the Lamb yogurt tabouli and rice which was nice but I had the Doner Mantari (something like that) and it was awful! It was shaved processed lamb with zero flavour and very oily, served with rice and a garden salad. Thankfully hubby shared half of his with me. Kids were happy with their rolls. Desserts are way over priced for what you get. The one thing that made it all worth it, was we saw the Belly Dancer. She was great 👍
The Turkish bread was hot crunchy tasty and plentiful. The mixed platter of chicken and lamb was delicious and there was so much there we couldn't get to dessert. We'll make a point of saving space for that on our next visit. Highly recommended.
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.
Amazing food and great service. We travel from the northern suburbs to come here and always we’ll worth it. Have never had a bad meal, the food is of a very high standard and very authentic.
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.
