A weekend visit to Chester from Birmingham. We booked a table here based on the good reviews already added and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, Chilean wine all affordable and served impeccably by a pleasant young waiter. Thoroughly recommend.

Not a bog standard kebab shop - a real surprise and a find. Lovely people and excellent fresh food. Brought some Turkish folks there and they gave it a massive thumbs up. Just try it and see for yourself.

Good fresh meal, healthy and no grease. Service was good too. Definitely go again. Just on the edge of town so if you stopping central it's a few quod in a taxi

Exactly what is says on the tin - great turkish food. Big flavours, big portions and you'll leave witha big stomach after eating the more-ish array of food. Staff have an authentic Turkish charm and are happy to assist with whatever you need.

Hi I believe we are booked in for a work's Xmas night out in December. I've looked at your menu on your website and there seems very little for vegetarians. Is the online menu complete or do you offer more dishes? Regards Gary
