Had been reccomended to us from friends who go regular. So we gave it a go and have Just had the most incredible night. Such a lovely place to go. Amazing food, service and atmosphere. And even tho they was very busy with a big party in the corner that didnt stop them from pleasing us all. Staff was all smiley and helpful i think they could put anyone in a good mood. Food was to die for me and my husband had no complaints whatsoever. We shared a beautiful hot mez to start followed by the taksim special which was all cooked so well by the chef. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have booked up for next month. So if you havent been here yet you must you will not regret it. I cant wait.

This is my second review as we have been here several times since it opened.Unfortunately things have gone downhill. We came a few weeks ago too and thought that maybe they were having a bad day, but this time was the same, if not worse.
We finished work and went in here around 5ish, it was a glorious day and so wanted to sit outside, unfortunately that wasn't possible as there were people smoking at the tables out there. Surely there should be a smoking area so that us non-smokers can enjoy the summer and eat outside??
We moved inside but as all the doors were open, the smoke was drifting in.
There was loud drilling going on in the pub next door, whilst normally I'd think the restaurant would have no control over that, the waiters/owners were moving in and out of the adjoining doors and so surely something could have been said??
And then the children.... obviously if children are eating in the restaurant and their parents don't keep them under control, its annoying but not the fault of the restaurant. However, these three were the children of the waitress, who were basically using the restaurant as a playground, despite the waitress screaming across the restaurant for them to "Sit down, its a restaurant and people are eating!!" several times. Well not us - we paid £10 for 2 drinks that we didn't finish and left. I guess when you find yourself in one restaurant googling another, you know its time to go.

I cannot see how this venue has excellent reviews, good maybe at a stretch. If you are unlucky to be sat near the door wear a coat unless its the summer! If you get sat next to the singer... ear plugs are needed as the speakers blast at you all night. Food is ok, expensive for what it is.

It is lovely to have a nice restaurant in the area. The taste is not for my personal liking. Everything I have tried doesn’t sit right with me. The price is extremely expensive also
