One of my faves.. So cozy, great atmosphere and the food is delicious. Prices pretty reasonable too. Gets pretty busy at lunchtime so best to book begore going saves time waiting.

Great place! Have been there before but I believe managment has changed and now its even better. Atmosphere was great and food was delicious and very generous with the portions. Service was perfect! I will be going there more often now that you really get value for money! Well done guys!

"Functions welcome": the friendly motto plastered in bold on their promising website was FAR from what we experienced last night. 18 of us went there for my best friend's intimate 21st dinner, but arrived to find the seating arrangements awkward as 6 of us were allocated seating separated from the rest of the party. We had hired a professional belly dancer as a birthday surprise BUT was then told by the manager that she's "not allowed to dance" because we didn’t order enough food. He unashamedly took out his calculator right after we placed our orders and accused us of being cheap and losing him business! And that if he let the belly dancer dance, other customers would get angry and complain. I do NOT see how other diners would object to a short ethnic dance as dinner side entertainment for free let alone make a complaint. We had to turn her away but pay her in full anyway. And as I walked her out, he stopped her to ask for her number and told her to "come dance for me some other day" right in front of us! Appalling! The waiters were far from friendly either, very distant and cold. When the rest of our party arrived we were told if they weren't ordering to give up the table when there were still plenty of big tables up front free. The food was so average; the restaurant is really just a kebab takeaway with good interior decorations. All in all, the dining experience was a nightmare; the birthday girl even had a tear up due to conflicts started by the manager. I have never experienced such rude service and will definitely never go there again! I recommend Cafe Bodrum, Turkish Cafe and Pasha over this any day.
