Visited last night for the first time with my boyfriend and we'll definitely go back. Starters were sublime! We shared prawns in creamy white wine sauce and meatballs. Both dishes were delicately cooked and delivered with a puffy bread which was light and perfect to dip in the sauces. The staff were friendly and attentive. I'd forgotten my reading glasses and they offered me a selection to borrow! The place was full so I'm glad we booked a table. There were several large birthday parties in, which added to the lovely atmosphere. The staff came out and sang to the birthday people, rattling pots and pans which was great fun. We didn't have to wait long to be served, even though the place was full. Main courses were delicious (there are many to chose from) and it was VERY reasonably priced. They are cash only, but there is a cash-point opposite so not too great a problem.

Turkuaz NEVER fails to impress.
On our latest visit (probably around our tenth visit overall) the food was as fantastic as ever.
The portion sizes are impressive, but not stupidly large, and the quality is always very high.
If you haven’t tried it yet I would definitely recommend it.

Visited for Sunday lunch only one other table in so very good service. Very extensive menu including 4 vegetarian starters and mains. Visited in a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meal, good sized portions. Staff pleasant and welcoming though did find one member a little too keen on checking if we needed any more drinks. Enjoyed a fantastic baklava for dessert.
Cash payments only, cash machine across the road.

Visited here after driving past many times!
Atmosphere ok and service good though we did have to wait to order our food as there was a big group in at the same time.
Excellent choice of main courses and my partner said his lamb dish was very tender!
Several negatives however : food appeared very fast . We had literally finished our starters and our plates were removed and main courses appeared without being asked if we were ready.
We were overcharged on the bill however this was corrected when we pointed this out .
And the strangest thing of all there is no chance of paying by card so if you don’t take cash or if the cash machine across the road doesn’t work you are in trouble!
