My husband and I stumbled across this gem of a place quite by chance. The food is delicious and a great choice on the menu. I had the falafel to start and my husband had garlic mushrooms. We both opted for a lamb steak cooked with traditional spices with rice and salad. For dessert baklava and Turkish coffee. Simply delicious.... More

We went as a couple - the set meal did a mixed meze, mixed grill and dessert, so we had that plus an additional main. Together with a couple of glasses of red wine came to about £40. Nice atmosphere - lots of meat in mixed grill - very pleasant evening - thanks

I love Mediterranean food. The Yoghurt with mint was excellent, so was the tarama. The lamb shank was good also. Nice little place with c 52 covers. Not offered the advertised lunch special and the waitress was much more interested in her phone than serving. Also had to ask for the bill twice. Steps everywhere, so no wheelchair access, but...

I visited once because I love middle eastern food and having lived in Cairo miss The VIBE Kebabs were faultless and delicious but while the restaurant was clean and well run it lacked an authentic smokey hookahish atmosphere - which the very best middle eastern haunts don't have to strive to produce. Clearly this appeals to the British market.The fact... More

We ate from the lunch menu. I ordered deep fried brie which I expected to be a lot softer, if not gooey when cutting into. Whilst the edges were, the centre was as firm as a brie that had come out of the fridge. Tasted nice though. For main I ordered the chicken shish and rice. This was OK but... More

Went to this lovely family restaurant again for Mother's day meal. Great food and very nice people. I don't eat red meat but always feel there's plenty of choice with chicken and veggie options.

Don't be put off by the exterior of this restaurant. It is facing the sea so could do with a lick of paint, but once inside it is a delight. We popped in for a quick lunchtime meal and couldn't fault it. We ordered from the lunchtime set menu which was amazing value at £9.95 for two courses. We ordered... More

I have visited the Istanbul on several occasions and am never disappointed. Tonight was no exception, the food, atmosphere and service were excellent, as usual. I highly recommend the Sutlac which is always amazing. I will definitely return.
