Lovely restaurant to spend a relaxing evening in - friendly service and great food. Quite a few repeat customers in on the evening I visited and it's easy to see why.

visited this place in September, thought would try it out, two pints and were flat, left on table and back to dragging people through the doors, if you are a regular this may be OK, but did not return

Situated on the main road this little Gem of a true Turkish Restaurant is easy to miss as you walk past but please believe me it is worth turning back to visit. It has a simple inexpensive menu cooked to perfection so please try.

Fabulous food at very good prices. Presentation & service perfect. Traditional Turkish dishes are my favourite such as the stuffed Aubergines, peppers & vine leaves.
