Delicious food. However they didn't get the booking through the app so we had to sit in the bar. Julie was an excellent representative for the restaurant.

    This is the 2nd time we have dined here, first time we were so impressed decided to bring a friend for her birthday. We were not disappointed. The first time we dined, it was the beginning of December, we had not booked, the restaurant was busy. But the friendly staff found us a table, the service was excellent and the food even better. Again this time, friendly, professional staff, excellent food and service. Everything we had was lovely, but the stand out dishes were the Tabouleh Salad and the Paprika Lamb (with a special mention of the perfectly cooked vegetables and fluff rice to accompany it). The Turkish House wine is pretty good too. Will definitely be coming back here again.

    Came here as a group of 5 girls, service was exceptional and atmosphere was very loud but buzzing... Had more food than we could possibly eat but were provided with doggy bags for home! Will return!

    All the starters were fabulous. The mains are basic but very tasty and the meat was the most tender I have had in a while. Nice atmosphere and cafe is a good description of the friendly feeling in the restaurant. .
