Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stopped here for dinner one evening. The staff is very friendly and we had an enjoyable evening. We ordered the vegetarian Turkish pizza which was quite good and the mixed platter of calamari and salmon and shrimp was quite good as well. We also...ordered the chicken skewers with rice and they were quite good. We had the apple tea after which was quite good. All in all a good experience.More

The food was tasty and enjoyed by all members of our group. However the costumer service was very disappointing. I requested one of the pizzas with the meat and 2 vegetable toppings instead of the second meat and jalapeños. I mentioned to the waiter I...don't eat jalapeños. The waiter informed me that this may not be possible and he would have to ask the kitchen, totally understandable. As I heard nothing back I assumed what I had requested was okay, however when my pizza arrived it didn't have any of the vegetables I requested and it had jalapeños on it. I requested a pasta dish instead which was honoured but with no apology and a poor attitude by the waiter. My friends extra chips were also forgotten. I don't like to complain as I work in hospitality myself, but I felt I had to write this review as the service I experience was so poor.More
