We dined here last night! It's always so so busy and we can see why. Meat is great quality and portions huge.with decent prices. It's a Golders Green institution.

The food is always, fresh, delicious and portions are generous. The service is prompt, friendly and courteous. It's an overall fantastic restaurant! You'd be hard pressed to find a better Turkish restaurant in the area!
