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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Terrible service! The waiter was so rude and coming to our table and asking can he get the plates and all the glasses where we wasn’t finished our lunch with my friend. We were staying for 1,5 hour where I saw him printing our bill...without to be asked.We will never come back to that place again!More

NO HOT WATER to wash my hands in the mens toilet despite running the tap for several minutes. This should lead to immediate closure as it means the staff who prepare food cannot wash their hands properly nor can customers. The wash basin was also...dirty with no sign of being recently cleaned. The Manager/front of house is a rude aggressive bully who is obviously in the wrong job. WILL NOT RETURN.More

I went there to have dinner last night with some visiting friends. The food and customer service were outstanding as always. It's the best Turkish food we've ever tasted, our friends said. The manager was very attentive and offered us Turkish tea from the house....We will be back soon!More

The food was amazing and the service was even better. Ertan and others were extremely hospitable and the service was very quick. We will definitely be attending again.

I have eaten here several times and always been very happy with the food and service. However tonight’s meal was so bad it don’t think I would waste my time returning. My Turkish coffee was reheated and spilt all in the saucer and down the...cup. Bread was salty and raw inside. I had vegetable kebab for my main and the vegetables had clearly burnt and shrivelled, swimming in oil. The sauce was stingy. Left the majority of the food and paid. In and out in less then 30 minutes. Expensive meal that leaves a lot to be desired.More

They do not serve fresh food. We all got food poisoning from eating in this restaurant - I would advise you to stay away from this place. Disgusting customer service too.

Every time I come here I am pleased I chose to eat here. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back, the service is friendly. The manager is kind and took time to find out what we liked and make suggestions. We even got a free...desert and Turkish tea. So glad I came here to celebrate my partners birthday 🎉More

Very bad customer service. The manager was so rude and unprofessional. He forced us to buy food because it was bank holiday and busy. I have never experienced anything like this before. At the end we had to leave because of this bad behaviour 😪....I don't suggest anyone to go there. Disgusting 👎More

Avoid this place. The manager is the rudest Iv ever met in a restaurant. How he is working there is beyond me. We had our family there including kids and he was rude to everyone. My advice go somewhere where your custom is appreciated. Plenty...of good restaurants in the area with much better customer service. AVOIDMore

We went there last night and shocked to witness the old waiter (with white hair) went to the toilet and didn't wash his hands and went straight to serve food. I was about to leave and was revolting the idea that he didn't wash his...hand. I will never go back there again and I would stay away from this place. I have called and reported this to the manager as wellMore
