Fantastic food and service

Very welcoming. Beer a bit overpriced. Istanbul lamb disappointing as just lamb burgers with plain rice.

Visited on Saturday night. Once again the food and service was fantastic. The staff are attentive and pleasant and the food is perfectly cooked.
Three of us had Istanbul chicken (very generous potion) and one of us had the slow cooked lamb which was delicious. We shared our starters,
they were lovely. Looking forward to our next visit.

THE RESTAURANT WAS COLD AT A BUSY TIME ON SATURDAY NIGHT. THE SERVICE WAS GOOD AND THE FOOD JUST OK. THE DECOR IS THAT OF A POSH CAFE AND NOT OF A FINE RESTAURANT. OVERALL DISAPPOINTING.

The staff were really attentive and accommodated our every need. They really looked after us. We had houmous and taramasalata to start - delicious! Then my dad had what were some of the biggest king prawns I have ever seen and he said they were delicious. My dad’s wife has paprika Lamb which I tasted and it was delicious. I had the apricot lamb but I think I preferred the paprika Lamb. The puddings were also delicious - I had baklava - yummy if you can eat nuts!
