Could not fault the food and service....Started with the Turkish Mezze, a wonderful spread of small dishes of Mediterranean delights, followed by mains of minced lamb and sea bass. the service and atmosphere was very nice, on top of this, it was so nice to have the holiday abroad touches, in the complementary Turkish bread and dips to start and...

A last minute decision to head out for dinner lead us to book aspendos, once again we were not disappointed. The staff are always fabulous, we have never had a bad meal here,always quick service and the food is delicious. A firm favourite of mine - keep up the good work guys 😀

Great restaurant in Inverness for those who crave Turkish food. Really varied menu, and the meze starters were tasty - enough food without a main course but had that too and really enjoyed it. Atmosphere was a bit quiet but it is January in Inverness so can't complain. The service was excellent - warm and friendly, and looked after us... More

We felt a little bit funny going to Turkish restaurant in Scotland but after few days of eating Scottish food we fancied something different. The food was delicious!! Freshly made and spiced just right! Superb quality! And fine wine.

The only problem is that I always eat my favourite dishes because... More

Me and my other half went in here as the menu looked nice & we weren't that hungry so we decided to just order some drinks & a starter and see how we felt. (The restaurant wasn't that busy) When the waiter/owner came to take our order, we ordered a bottle of wine & two portions of hummus. The guy... More

My friend and I entered the restaurant possibly as the final guests of service. The meal was great. Very tasty and the gentleman host was very welcoming. However, the waitress' scowl and abruptness ruined what could have been easily been a 4 star. It's not a pleasant feeling being stared at acrimoniously for having a meal when the waitress clearly...

We had a beautiful lunch here on the way back from Durness. The manager was a lovely gentleman who gave us some fantastic bread and Turkish cheese on the house! Would definitely recommend!
