Lettuce, tomato, cucumber & red onion tossed with lemon & extra virgin olive oil
Marinated parsley, finely diced tomato & red capsicum, cracked wheat
A delicious blend of potato, capsicum, red onion & parsley in our house made mayonnaise
Very quiet midweek. Very enjoyable.
Food is always delicious. Great atmosphere.
I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends
Fabulous food. Great Service.
Food was delicious; the wine list was good but many of the wines have not been reordered and are therefore out of stock for now; service was good but a little slack in removing dirty dishes etc
Superb food. Always enjoy coming here and had waited too long to return. Classy atmosphere. Very professional staff.
Really felt the stress the second we walked in. The restaurant was full and the staff were clearly struggling. There appeared to be no person of authority in the restaurant and it showed. We were greeted and sat down at out table which was missing cutlery and all guests were without a napkin. Our table was right in the middle of the restaurant which I didn’t enjoy at all. I had requested the best table possible not the busiest. My entire dinner I was being knocked by the wait staff which was extremely annoying. Staff were nice enough and assisted us if we needed anything. I really enjoyed all the food but the kitchen is where my last complaint rests. The food bell. The staff were clearly doing their best and were getting the food off the pass as quickly as they could. The aggressive nature the food bell was being rung by the back of house staff was 1. Really annoying 2. Made me feel extremely uncomfortable and affected my dining experience. As I said food was good, not sure I would go back at this stage
Food was okay same as other similar restaurants. We had the banquet it was nice, but they brought out like 5 dishes within about ten minutes like they were in a hurry. They also had no record of our booking through the Fork even though I showed them my two email confirmations from the Fork, a bit embarrassing.
Great place which I've been going to for years, food is always consistently good and service is always top notch. Good hearty Mediterranean food. Can't go wrong with this place.
A great favourite of ours!
All in all a great experience...lovely food and presentation.
We had a really lovely night celebrating a birthday. The banquet was plentiful and tasty, service could not be faulted and the atmosphere lively.
Great food. Baklava and coffee never disappoints
Amazing selection of tapas and mains
2nd time we’ve been and this time we brought friends as we loved it so much the first time! It didn’t disappoint, great food and atmosphere, we’ll certainly be back again
Good food and a cozy family atmosphere
We really enjoyed ourselves here. The food was really delicious. The dessert that was on special was amazing. Will definitely go back!
We always love going to this restaurant. Good food, quick service, friendly people.
The babaganoush was outstanding, most of the meat was fine, but the vegetarian options were lacking in vegetable matter which made the meal overwhelmingly stodgy. Even the Tabbouleh was thin on the ground regarding quantity. The acoustics (low ceiling) make the place somewhat noisy, so it is hard to have a conversation.
very welcoming service . an interesting menu with a mix of share or entrée size dishes, then mains. we shared an entrée then lamb hotpot between two with 2 sides (generous size) which was plenty. the mixed dessert platter was very nice with Turkish coffees after.
