Another great visit but with the family, we were a little concerned what the grandchildren would eat, but not a problem with a little help from the waitress we made our selections. All the food was well cooked very tasty and we all enjoyed the evening

Had the 2 course lunch £10 deal which was any 2 courses of a smaller size. Very good portions, more than enough for lunch. Food is always delicious and fresh. The staff are very helpful. Outstanding as usual, just wish I lived nearer.

Been here few times, never reviewed before. Mix of Turkish/Greek food. I love it as the way of cooking is very similar to my home country. Olive oil, garlic, fresh vegs. Also love it as their mezes and all dishes can be shared, letting you try all sorts of food!

Its a change from... More

We had a lovely family dinner and fortunately we were not in a hurry because the only thing not perfect was the waiting time - the rest was great

Food average but they rush you in and serve you immediately even before u finished your first drink. Very attentive and keep bugging you to top up your drinks. They then brought us the bill without asking for it. They were not interested in us but our money . Won't be going there again in a hurry. They need to... More

I think the potions are very small for the price, but it is still good to eat. All staff were good 😊

My friend and I dined here last Thursday. We both enjoy Greek food and usually go to the Greek restaurant in Chapel Allerton however my Dad mentioned this had a good write up so we tried this. We opted for the £20 per head Chefs Special Meze which is a mixture of hot and cold starters and mains. Have to... More
