Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was literally sad on my recent visit as things weren’t the same. I have been coming here for years no matter where I have lived, Surrey, London and Kent. I love to start with Lahmucon, Turkish pizza, but the owner/cook wouldn’t make it even...though it is on the menu, So we had chicken kebab, which was decent, and the bread was nice, sucek, and a lame Akdeniz Salad, which was mostly iceberg unfortunately. So, as we were still in town, we popped back in the next day, asked for the lahmucon again, and the grumpy guy said ‘no’ again, with no reason why. #disappointing If that isn’t your fav dish then you will be fine. I also miss an aubergine dish which was no longer on the menu. No mints or olives or tiny treats like the old days either. Turkey is too far to go for my lahmucon fix!More

Delicious freshly cooked dishes always feel like a home cooked experience. We’ve been coming as a family to this restaurant for about ten years. The people are simply wonderful. We always get a smile and a wave from the owners.

We had a great meal. The waiter was really chatty and friendly. We would recommend getting hot dishes from under the counter. We had a lamb stew with rubber beans and a chicken stew with potatoes. Both came with a lot of rice, bread and...pickled vegetables. We also had an excellent bottle of red Turkish wine. The bill came to £40 for both of us. Without wine, it would have cost just £10 each (excl tip).More

This is the third time we have eaten here and each time it has been equally delicious. The service is good, the food is excellent and try the Efes beer, it is very good. Go for the family platter you won’t be disappointed!

Quite possibly one of the worst meals I’ve ever had to eat (via Uber eats). Firstly the baba Ganosh arrived cut up and frozen solid (inedible). Secondly the pickles came looking like they just been pored out a jar from Tesco’s mainly made with carrots...and gherkins 🥴. But the final nail in the coffin was the chilli prawns aka Karides Tava. I got sent the most sad Amount and type of prawns there must of been about 5/6 just barely cooked and the type you’d put in your prawn cocktail sandwich for a kids buffet. All in all really bad meal and when we rang up the guy in the end of the phone was not understanding and very rude to my partner. For £60 we could of eaten out somewhere for less and better quality.More

The food and services here were excellent . So glad we ordered the mixed grill as it gave the restaurant a chance to show what they can do with meat. Chicken in particular is difficult to get right but here it was well flavours and...succulent. If you are in Brighton give it a go. You will be glad you did.More

We came here for some late lunch and was very happy with what we got. The service was decent and the food was spot on. We both had different types of lamb dish, which was delicious. The portion sizes were huge! Which you can’t grumble...at. It’s not centrally located but still had lots of custom, which is a good sign.More

Visited this restaurant on Monday 2nd August 2021 while on a family holiday to Brighton. The Restaurant is tucked away of the main road and not really much to look at from the outside, due to the age of the building and restrictions however that...is the only negative thing I can say about it. From the minute we entered we were greeted by a very friendly waiter, who seated and tended to us for the evening. The menus are packed with variety and choice. Other diners I observed were mostly Turkish and for a Monday night there weren’t any tables empty which all was a good sign. We ordered the Shared Platter which didn’t disappoint, it was packed with Chicken and Lamb, served with Rice, Salad and Bread. The Turkish wine is also a must. The portions were more than enough and we left feeling stuffed. This place is a diamond despite the rough exterior and hope it will be around for many years to come as we will be back on our next visit.More
