When we arrived it was clear we were an inconvenience to the incredibly surly staff who seemed they would far rather being doing anything other than looking after us. The food, though plentiful, was poor. Meat was greasy. Rice was stodgy.

Have visited this restaurant a few times before and the food has always been tasty. However on this visit there was a very unfriendly atmosphere when we arrived. It was a Saturday night and not many customers. We were shown to a table, given menus and left to our own devises. We actually wondered whether this was now self service... More

The staff ignores you if you are not Turkish. I came here on Saturday 8th October (yesterday) with a friend, how was Turkish. The waiter serving us, basically ignored me and only talked to my friend because she spoke Turkish. We had entered the restaurant, the waiter came up to us and he spoke to her, and he basically said... More

I cannot help but rave about this restaurant. It is phenomenal! For starters the restaurant is very clean and you are always greeted with a smile from the cooks. All meat is out on display and most , if not all, food is cooked right in front if you. Service is super speedy! The best point about this restaurant, besides... More

As a family we need gluten free options, but Pera don't provide these unless you want to eat chips with everything. Many bread based restaurants are happy to substitute rice for bread - this used to be the case with Pera. But now their rice isn't rice - it's a mixture of rice and seed shaped pieces of wheat pasta,... More

Had another gorgeous meal at Pera last night, 7 of us had mixed meze starters and Pera special mixed grills for mains. The food is delicous, staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Pera is my favourite restaurant and we will be returning regularly for sure, we have taken lots of friends to Pera in the past and... More

Got here on a busy Saturday evening and was ushered to the upstairs room by an attentive waitress. We were greeted by traditional Turkish music played on a double lute! My boyfriend got the Lamb shish which was plentiful served with two varieties of Mediterranean rice and a large moreish salad. I went for a vegetarian option of Falafal -... More

My partner and I had been meaning to try this place since noticing how inviting it looked and we're glad to be able to stop by for lunch on Saturday. We were warmly greeted by the waiter and chose a seat by the window. Before even ordering drinks we were brought a dish full of olives and nibbles which was... More

Food was ok, portion was about right but I asked for the house Turkish red wine. The wine arrived it was just poured and not offered to be tasted prior to pouring. The wine (Italian) when looked for on the internet was available for £3.13, I told the waitress (Fatush) the wine was terrible, she even tasted it and agreed,... More
