I visit Hattusa often and the food rarely lets me down! Great atmosphere, service and food. Very pleased.
Been here for lunch and dinner and on each occasion food is fresh tasty and great value. Staff are very polite and helpful and service is quick and efficient
This was our first visit to Hattusa last Friday with my partner, and fortunately managed to get a table for two at the last minute.
The restaurant itself is situated on the first floor. (I personally didn't see a lift, so not to sure if it's suitable for the elderly that have difficulty with stairs or any wheelchair users). On the night we dined, it was very busy and very loud (not by music, just by other diners chattng away). I personally like that "buzz" of "chiiter chatter" over loud music & gave the restaurant an atmosphere.
For those that can't get a table or fancy having their tasty food at home, they have a takeaway service / counter at the entrance of the restaurant on the ground floor. Which is handy for commuters, as the restaurant is a very short walk from the train station and there is a minicab office practically next door.
For starters we ordered the Sucuk (a grilled turkish sausage) which was bursting full of flavour, along with some humus.
For mains, we ordered the Chicken Shish & the Kleftiko, both of which were tasty and cooked to perfection. The lamb especially, it literally just fell of the bone! I would definitely recommend this and will be ordering it again on my next visit.
The bill came to about £50 for the four dishes between the two of us (including two glasses of wine and soft drinks). Which I thought was quite reasonable.
My only gripes were 3 small issues, starting with my biggest gripe, i found that Hattusa cram in far to many tables for the small size of the restaurant. I looked around the other tables and some of them were "elbow to elbow".
On my visit, I was situated at the very top corner of the stairs, and I was constantly being bumped into by other customers or the waiting staff delivering or clearing plates etc.
The other gripe I had was that I found the service a little slow, granted the staff were extremely polite and welcoming, and they were running their socks of during a very busy Friday night, but if it wasn't for a waitress accidentally kicking my chair & apologising (for about the 3rd time), I wouldn't have had the opportunity to ask for more drinks at our table, when all the glasses were sitting empty for some time.
My other disappointment was basically the desert selection:
Considering they offer about 25 different Meze selections to choose from & about 30 main courses, as well as about 10 different options for sides and mains.
They only offer a choice of 3 simple desert options (3 scoops of ice cream / milk pudding or Baklava).
I was considering giving this a 3 star rating, but felt that was a bit harsh, & on the basis of the quality of the food we received, along with the polite staff and myself making a last minute booking on a very busy evening, I think it's worthy of the 4 stars overall.
I would certainly go back to Hattusa (perhaps not on a Friday night though), but I'm looking forward to returning in the near future, & would certainly recommend it to others.
We were tempted to try Hattusa as the reviews were so good and we were not disappointed. We tried a selection of starters and mains and everything was well cooked, tender chicken and lamb and great flavours. Small selection of very reasonably priced wines. Good ( very speedy) service and surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening. Well worth a visit.
