    Been back a number of times now. Turkish offerings are minimal but excellent. Brilliant service and always have chat with the chef. Discount offer makes for really good value.

    I love this place, the service is amazing, the food is fantastic and great value. It’s a hidden gem. The food is filling and fresh, and the chef comes out and talks to you about what’s in everything. Thank you, definitely be back.

    A good suburban restaurant. Not particularly atmospheric, but the food makes up for it. Lamb especially, was excellent.
