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 am actually so shocked at the other reviews because what I experienced was vile. The kids chicken items looked like something from a 90s school dinner pre Jamie Oliver. To call it chicken is probably a stretch. It was like frozen, reconstituted deep fried...leather. I don't ever expect too much from a kids menu but this was inedible. My daughter ate a small amount and had stomach cramps all evening. The adults meals weren't much better. Garlic mushrooms arrived with a thick layer of skin on the top so I can only surmise had been sitting for some time before reheating. The sigara boregi arrived on a bed of brown & wilted lettuce, and contained a substance which tasted akin to a fried cheese slice. Definitely not the 'fresh food' I was expecting, and especially not for the price. Whole family left the majority of the food and won't be returning. Turkish cuisine is our favourite but this is by far the worst establishment we've visited to date. If you're in Liverpool definitely try Gustum or Istanbul over this place because the quality is miles above that provided by Elif at the same price point.More

This is my Favourite restaurant by far. Today we went for my Birthday meal. The food was AMAZING (the lamb chops are to die for) and you get plenty of it. We had the mixed kabab for 4 and ended up getting some boxed to...take home. If you can fit in dessert I would highly recommend the Tralice. The Staff and Management there are fantastic nothing is too much trouble they engage in conversation creating a great atmosphere and the price is really reasonable too.More

The best Turkish restaurant there is!! The customer service is unbelievably nothing is too much trouble and we are always made to feel so welcome and special. This restaurant has such lovely warm inviting atmosphere and I believe this is because of how lovely all...the staff are. We have tried different Turkish restaurants but nothing comes close. The food is of the highest quality with really big portion sizes. I highly recommend the karisik kebab plus they have the most amazing selection of deserts our favourite is the Turkish tralice cake it’s delicious.More

Wow just wow! We had the mixed starter to share and was bursting with flavours, then for mains we had the kebab for 2 (could have fed the whole place)! All of the staff and the manager were lovely and couldn’t do enough for us....Manager made us feel so welcome on arrival, took us straight to our table and settled us in. Will definitely be returning here and would highly recommend to anybody. Lovely atmosphereMore

We have been eating here maybe two to three times a year for the last, well a long time, we used to eat at Owen’s. Food and service have always been great but today was an exception. My wife had sea bass which was butterflied...and grilled but not filleted? Apparently you are required to ask for it without the bones, presumably some people must like to eat the bones? I had the mixed grill which was ok, the fresh meat portion was quite small and the rice was more like porridge. My wife complained about the fish three times, 1 while trying to eat it, 2 when she gave up trying to eat it and 3 when we had paid the bill and were about to leave. The best response was that the manager would be told about it and the other was that she should have specified she didn’t want the backbone or the meat with the bones grilled in (this was not whole head on baked fish). A small Diet Coke comes as a can of unopened Diet Coke banged on the table with an empty glass. The restaurant was not busy, there were plenty of empty tables and nobody standing by the door waiting for a seat as it often has been. We are both in our 60’s so we’ve been to a lot of restaurants around the U.K. and rest of the world, this reminded me of a Thai restaurant we once visited which served battered deep fried king prawns with the shell on. Sometimes a member of staff can be having a bad day and that’s unfortunate, this was everyone working there seemingly having a bad day.More

What a fantastic restaurant! Food is 5 star with an extensive menu which caters for everyone with a vegetarian menu and children’s menu. The staff are amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them and they were so lovely. My friend and I had...a wonderful dinner with beautiful food and staff in lovely surroundings. Highly recommend this restaurant and they cater for parties too. I would recommend booking if possible as it is very popular and gets very busy of a weekend but we didn’t have to wait long at all for our food or drinks. I would give Elif 5 stars 🌟 very good!!More
