Wasn't where we were planning to eat but after reading all the reviews we thought we would give it a whirl. We were very pleasantly surprised! Meze starter (chefs selection) - very nice!! The food tasted really fresh and you get a real sense of the Turkish culture. The staff were really attentive, we will definitely be returning :).

Great food and really good atmosphere, the staff are friendly and the restaurant is really clean, my only niggle is I could have had a bit more food, but portions were sensible and great for the girls, 100% going back more often.
