Fantastic service and excellent food in a beautiful old stone building (make sure you book the front room). I had musakka which came sizzling in a clay dish and lezzet salad both really good. Spot on!

This is the first time we have eaten Turkish Food and this restaurant was fantastic. It is such a shame that it is not local to us. Food was delicious and the service was excellent.

As a customer I don't think they do you have asked the question of reviewers not the owners. They have a website with menu
