Authentic? Well yes it is, which is not a great thing. Not really sure what the Turkish is good at, but their cuisine is well worth a miss. Sticky floors and tables just add to the Authentic Turkish Cafe effect!

Food and service were great. We spent 4 days in Sandwich and had our best meal at Edessa. Our kids, both under 10 loved it too. Service was good too. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the hot Meze selection for 2, fresh ingredients, prepared to order and flavoursome, pleasant staff and friendly owners. Not too sure about the background music, traditional Turkish would have been better suited to creating the right ambience.
