We ordered through one of those delivery apps. Our order was Lamb Beyti and it was the most delicious we had in London. As a Turkish person I am picky with my own cuisine and definitely loved it. We also had mixed cold meze and I had the best kisir. I do strongly suggest that you should give it a... More

Obviously very popular because the restaurant was completely full on a Thursday evening, but VERY cramped, verging on hazardous - we were put in an alcove, with very limited headroom, pretty much blocked in by other diners. The lanterns and decor brought back memories of Istanbul, but that's where any comparison ends. The (Italian) Aperol Spritz was probably the highlight.... More

Food was good, tasty and not overcooked. Reasonably priced. Good atmosphere. Bit cramped for space. Definitely go back.

Went for brunch on a Sunday. The waiters are polite, smiling and professional. I got an omelette and my friend got a Turkish breakfast. The food was delicious and well presented. Will come back to taste more of the menu!

For a casual bite in an expensive city this restaurant does well. Lots to choose from the service is casual and food is earthy. Real taste of Turkey and some of their neighbouring countries thrown in!

Although the alcove that we were placed in was a tight squeeze and we had to sit according to who had the strongest bladder, the food more than made up for it. We were given free shots to make up for the lack of space. I've been coming here for 17 years on and off and the food is still... More

We popped in for a quick, light meal that proved to be delicious. Fresh juice. Good service. Recommended!

I wanted to go to a Turkish restaurant for my 18th birthday party, so I thought why not Gallipoli. It's easily accessible and has good reviews online. I was certainly not disappointed when I went! The staff were so attentive and friendly, giving my friends and I a lovely experience. When the belly dancer came, the afternoon just became even... More

We booked in advance for 5 and upon arrival there was no table available. A group of 4 were then asked to move to a corner table whilst in the middle of eating their main course! Absolutely shocking!@!..but they did. Restaurant is extremely crammed with tables and we were virtually shouting to have a conversation. It really does question safety... More

I have tried one by chance because I live nearby and it was such a good discovery. Very goos quality of food, location, scenery inside and staff. I feel like to be in Turkey and I love it. Now it is my familiar place. I suggest you vegetarian musakka and harem dish. I come from Italy and this food is... More
