Situated in the Turkish Mosque precinct, which is also a tourist attraction. Service was fantastic and food was good. Restaurant is spacious and tables have plenty of room for the food platters. We were a party of 6 and the food was served in a beautiful, long, ship like structure. The platters that serve 6+ people are a great option.... More

The meat was dry and tasteless and the food generally unappetizing Turkish coffee was average. But the service was good.

We were a party of 7. The food was great, from starters to the main course. It was just too hot. It would be great if the owners installed some air conditioners. Also they need an ice machine desperately.

The venue is gorgeous. The food is highly specialised. The baclava is lovely. It offers a memorable experience for one wanting to experience something authentic.

The ambiance: atmosphere and setting were so lovely. It's quite deceiving from the outside as it looks smaller than it actually is. There were quite a few tables filling up on Friday at 7pm, so it was buzzing lightly as well. The service: from reading previous reviews, the service seems to have improved, but it CAN improve more. The food:... More

This was my first trip back to this restaurant after about a year. On my last visit I was quite put off by the poor service. While the service has improved slightly, I still found it somewhat lacking. Despite it being very quiet, the waitron still seemed very unfriendly and almost disinterested. The food was acceptable but not memorable. My... More

Delightful menu with a Turkish / Arabic flavour. Food is freshly prepared and tastes good. Setting is pleasant - bit hot because the aircons had packed up
