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.

Visited this place last night with a friend. Got my order wrong. No atmosphere. Staff unfriendly. Food awful. Will not return.

Visited this place some years ago when in Sheffield for a gig and I was delighted to find it again whilst here on business. The food is delicious. I have never tasted bread like the one they serve with the houmous...it is divine. The meat...is deliciously fresh and beautifully cooked. Portions generous. Turkish red wine is sublime!More

Came here on 19/09/23 in a very deserted restaurant; seated by the window. Found what I wanted to order - a lamb casserole and friend had a vegetarian casserole. Accompanied by a starter of olives which came with third size of Turkish bread cut up....The olives had no oil in the dish, so having it with a bit of bread was rather dry too. The mains arrived, and to my astonishment found that the rice portion was so small, only a baby would manage this (3tbsp domed shape ) but to make things absolutely worse, it didn't come with any bread nor pickled veg. In all my experiences eating Turkish food, these are what is usually accompanied to any main meal in a restaurant. I ask for these from a waiter and they replied they don't have it with the meal. I paid £13.90 for this (casserole was meant to be mixed veg, but got peppers and a bit of onion - okayish, nothing to write home about - it was made to look bigger as it was served in a ceramic dish atop the plate. The salad wasn't dressed and was bigger than the rice! Asked for tap water, but got given £2 bottled water without given a glass for it. For £36 it was an expensive mistake. I will not visit again. I'm sure the other restaurants will serve their mains with bread and pickles, and the rice will be a lot bigger!More

This restaurant is absolutely terrible. The food is absolutely disgusting and not nice. I would say 0 out of 10 I wouldn’t recommend for anybody to visit this place because it’s just a waste of money. The staff are Turkish and I understand some of...the language and I could hear them swearing. also, the staff are rude and not polite. We could see them, after they collected the money which were in cash form to be more clear coins, and we know that coins go hand to hand, they are really dirty they don’t wash their hands before starting to prepare the food. We found hair in the food and the food was freezing. I think the food was cooked before and they just warmed it up in the microwave. I think that the food is not freshly cooked. The salad and the rice were disgusting as well. The Adana kebab wasn’t nice too I don’t have words to describe this terrible place. I’ve ordered from this place as well and the food was the same. Even if you order for delivery or you visit the place physically doesn’t matter they just don’t bother.More

Terrible customer service, me and my friend paid over £25 and were asked to leave in a really abrupt and rude way. We were told to leave the table when literally all the restaurant was empty. That was a terrible experience for us and the...food was not even that good. Grilled stuff are ok but all the rest are bought ready made and sometimes even taken out of tin possibly from the super market. I would not recommend it to anyone.More

The restaurant layout was inviting, I liked the unique pictures on the wall and I especially loved the rustique decor. I ordered a halloumi wrap with rice. The meal was just the right portion and tasted wonderful, so fresh tasting. Our server was so pleasant...and was on hand with everything we needed. If you want a nice Turkish meal in Sheffield, visit Istanbul you won’t be disappointed. Istanbul also do a takeaway option too so on your next night out in Sheffield why not pay a visit to Istanbul, you know you want too.More
