authentic turkish food,cooked fresh over an open hearth. Service and explanations of what the food is on the menu is mouthwatering, leaving one to wonder what to have on the next visit

We visited the restaurant to celebrate my Grandson's birthday. The moment we entered the door we were made welcome by the pleasant staff. We had a relaxing drink before having the most delicious meal. It was like having a meal in someone's home nothing was rushed. If you want a quick meal this is not the place for you. Great... More

Walked past the place a couple of times when it was closed. Turns out they close at 9pm so made an effort to get there earlier next time. It was worth it. The food is cooked fresh (you know because you see the owner cooking it after you order!) and is delicious. The menu is a bit limited but, to... More

The Aubergine is a tiny little restaurant (make sure you book) where the owner sits on a little stool behind the grill, meticulously turning the delicious meat so it is cooked to perfection. The portions are huge and generous and the salads are fresh as a daisy. We shared the aubergine dip to begin with hot and steamy fresh bread... More

In amongst the trendy and chain restaurants of Leamington and Warwick sits a little piece of authenticity! It has the feel of being in a little restaurant in Turkey with a real and slightly aged appearance which adds to its charm. The chef and waitresses were all appropriately attentive and cheerful and able to give advice on the menu. We... More

Excellent meal - just stumbled across it by accident and very pleased we did. Very good meat - best Turkish food I've had for a very long time.

Fantastic food and lovely, friendly service. The interior of then restaurant is very well presented and the decor is lovely. I did feel I was paying a bit of a Warwick premium though, as I've had a similar eating experience for about 20% less in Birmingham.

Love this restaurant. Staff so welcoming and the food is wonderful - especially love the Sultans Feast. I have no idea how he gets the meat so tender. Great selection of Turkish wine. If you describe what you like the guidance to help you pick is spot on

Luckily stumbled across this delightful restaurant by accident! So glad we did, food was excellent, staff extremely friendly and helpful in navigating the menu if like me you just can't decide. They have a traditional Turkish fire pit which is visible to the diners in the restaurant, can see your food being prepared in front of you. Restaurant itself is... More
