Even upon request the Air Con was not put on. Only when they had some Arab customer walked in they put the air con on. Shame on them for doing such a thing, will never go there again.

Having travelled for a number of months through SE Asia, Turkish food was a welcomed treat!! And we were not let down by Istanbul restaurant. The chicken and beef shish kebab were excellent.. Both the meat and the wrap itself!! Friendly and tentative staff!

For a change from Loa food, this venue is a good alternative, good friendly service and nice food that is not overpriced

Tried to go twice today but it was closed all day... It's Friday, so I dunno what this means. I wish they had some info about it on the door. It would have saved us from coming the second time.
