Possibly the worst meal I have had. Ambience - very noisy. Staff slow to respond to orders. Quality of food - mediocre. Was annoying to pay 10% service charge aso we were more than 8 in party. Altogether most disappointing

I have had a sit down meal here but decided on a take away which my son does on a weekly basis. I must say that it was very tasty and tucked all of the right boxes. At a very reasonable £20 you can’t complain...More

Beautiful food, all super fresh, and extensive menu. We had a big collection of cold and hot starters, children loved lamb shish and steak, lovely not too sweet baklava for pudding and fresh Turkish coffee. Lovely staff too - highly recommend this place!

We have been to Cira many times over the last few years. Service is always excellent and the food is great nice home made bread. Nice healthy options and food is cooked in an open kitchen.

Went there on a Friday it was calm but through the night it got busy. The staff are amazing and friendly, took great care of each table. The food was delicious especially the chicken shish, the bread was fresh. Overall a great restaurant.

We ordered online for takeaway and collected the order. When we got home, we were short by one rice dish. Doesn't sound too bad but remember, this is their business...this is what they do. When I called the restaurant to ask where the other rice...More
