Good Turkish Food, Turkish Bread served is excellent. Lahmachum is better to be consumed in the restaurant rather then takeaway, as it gets soggy. Good value for money, good service, finding parking nearby is an issue.

The food here is superb... I visit many Turkish restaurants and this is one of my favourite by far! It is also half the price of many other restaurants. It is more of a café feel than a proper restaurant to have a night out. The staff are okay, can depend on who is working that evening. But never rude.... More

I've been here several times now and they never fail to impress. The food is always great. Service is friendly and it is reasonably priced. I always love the humus and lamachun ! Everything is great plus they have massive servings.

Food is outstanding. 1 waiter who always looks like he has had an argument with his dad. Apart from that everything was good.

Doesn't look much from the outside, we almost went to the posher looking place over the road but for the advice of an old Turkish guy who heard us deliberating. Really glad we tried this place though, lovely food and a really nice restaurant inside. Reasonably priced too.

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions in the past and have always been happy with the quality and quantity of food. Last night (29 Oct), the restaurant was very empty for a Friday night. I did not recognise any of the staff, has the restaurant changed hands? I always have the ribs, and these were under seasoned and... More

This restaurant is a veritable jewel within the barren wilderness of Ilford dining. OK, if you were to wander past this place at lunchtime, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was nothing more than a kebab shop. But it is so much more than that, as it is a mangal – so it has a big charcoal pit in the restaurant... More

I haven't been here for a while but some others were going for a meal and I thought I would tag along As I remember, the food and service was on point. The only let down is the table sizes. It's not like they are abnormally small or anything, it's just that the portions are quite large and so there... More
