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.

The food here is absolutely amazing amd in big portions and it’s always busy and buzzing .There were 6 of us and we were going to order lots of mains and 5 starters to share .The waiter insisted we all had to order a main....So we did do that but ordered 2 staters instead of 5.They would have made more money from us if they had not insisted each person had to have a main .More

Generous portions. Plenty to eat. Great kebabs, plentiful salads and tasty pita bread. But noisy because it’s so busy. Go early for some quiet.

Regarding: The Likya lunch & sweets coffee shop across the street (sisterly branch of the big restaurant). Excellent place! I love coming here for lunch during work hours. Good portions and reasonable prices. Always warm fresh bread with your food. Excellent gozleme. I am a...big fan of the soups and lunch choices. Great for vegetarians as well. Do try the Turkish breakfast - lots of interesting dips to try. Be careful as it’s big, come hungry or with a friend/partner. The ladies working there are always cheerful and happy!More

Came here with a friend to celebrate passing an exam. To sum it up - staff are very attentive, we were given free pita with delicious dips on arrival, gorgeous lamb and chicken. Great salad, and a lovely touch was being given some free baklava...at the end of the meal. So impressed and wished I lived nearby to visit again!More

Never seen a restaurant with such lazy, useless staff. They couldn't be arsed to serve us, spent most of the time hanging out inside, in lunch, gossiping and playing in their phones. Outside we couldn't get any service. Every time we needed something we had...to go in and get them. They really didn't want to work. We spent £57, but they couldn't even be bothered to bring water. Lazy, useless, good for nothing staff. It was a mistake to pay the service charge, but we just wanted to leave.More

10/10 for this excellent Turkish restaurant. Food was very good- and portions great size (plenty of meat, salad, and bread). As soon as we walked in, we felt welcomed by the friendly staff. A special thank you to the brilliant service we had from our...waiter 'Huseyin.' Nothing was too much trouble, he was extremely helpful and very patient with us. We would definitely recommend this place!More

I visited because the restaurant looked so popular, but was a bit disappointed by the slow service (which got quicker to be fair) and average food. My starter was good but the mixed chicken (great) and lamb (tough and dry) kebabs not so. The huge...salad (mostly carrot!) was all that came with the dish - some rice would have been nice. The compulsory service charge is annoying - as always a star knocked off for that.More

A group of us from Manchester High School got together after 30 odd years of not seeing each other and I would not change the experience we had at LIKYA OCAKBASI restaurant for anything. I have to make mention of the business owner Hasan. I’m...sure he’d rather not be mentioned 😊but he was such a gracious host and saw to it that our every need was catered to. It was breathtaking to see the manager fully invested in the service aspect of the business, clearing tables and giving great service. The food was so delicious and our freshly extracted carrot juice was so good. The atmosphere was filled with love and laughter even shared by those that weren’t a part of our group. At the end of the reunion I popped across to the LIKYA BAKERY for a delicious slice of red velvet cake to take home and it was sooooooo yummy. Exceptional experience had by all. Thank you so much Hasan.More

Ordered the lamb and chicken kebab 15.95 . Got one of each skewer doesn’t come with chips or rice just salad which was a mound of grated carrot covered and camouflaged with other more expensive vegetable like red cabbage etc… to look better than it...was. So literally a 10cm skewer of chicken and 10cm skewer of lamb with a load of grated carrot was 15.95 and no chips or rice. We ordered a bottle of house red and for 4 people with small cup of black tea at the end came to over £100. Totally not worth it. This place used to be better value but will never go again and I’m sure other people will be put off after visiting. Very poor and disappointing, actually very mean indeed.More

We were a party of 5 who mostly ordered the same,mixed chicken and lamb grill with salad and rice.Really tasty pieces of meat and a fantastically fresh salad but the ratio was a bit off.A few extra pieces of meat and a little bit less...salad would’ve been perfect.The rice was ok once it was mixed in with the meat dish and some sauce was added.The bread with sauce at the beginning was delicious as was the prosecco.More

I don't really think, for business reasons, that a staff member should be rude and that they should be helpful. (It helps them get money.) Hope you enjoy your next visit (If you do go back.)
