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.

Find this one on Tripadvisor, and I would definetly go there again once being in the area, even for a day trip as the final stop. The food was amazing, best and freshest Turkish food I had, ordered red onion salad as a special side...which I knew from home and delighted the crew by being familiar with their culture. It was a lovely time there, the setting is nice, and the service level is exceptional. I would recommend going there and njoy an evening there. Beautiful place.More

We’ve been to meze on many occasions over the years and always enjoyed the atmosphere and delicious and authentic Turkish food. We asked the team if they would do the catering for a private party which they kindly obliged. After a few emails back and...forth about what we should expect/require and our budget, my husband and I were invited for a complementary tasting so we could be shown how it could be presented and we could better understand portion sizes etc. we were treated like royalty and tasted some food we were expecting, and some that we weren’t. This really helped us to decide what we wanted to order. The 10+ boxes of piping hot food were delivered to the party on time with extra veg for garnish and more bread than we had asked for. All of the guests loved the food and it went down brilliantly. Would definitely ask you guys again and wish we had asked you to do our wedding! Highly recommended. Thank you!More

For a Mother’s Day treat and lunch out we were so disappointed. The lamb that I had was so chewy and bland that I could not eat it! After 3 tries I could not eat my dish, and complained, the owner grumpily apologised and knocked...it off the bill. My husband also said that his meal was extremely dull and lacked any authentic flavour. Kids were happy with their lahmajun. Had a baclava to take off my hunger, was fine, could have been free as an apology. Wine was nice so returned home tipsy but hungry!!! Worst Turkish meal that we have ever had, will not be returning! And would have returned a lot with family and friends. Oh well!More

Friendly, helpful staff, delicious food. Good atmosphere, busy but not to the detriment of the ambience. Delicious meze shared for starters - sugara boregi and calamari especially good. Tender grilled Sea bass. Would recommend for good Turkish food.

Been going for many years and still the best Turkish in the area. Have to go as far away as Brighton to get anything on a par with this. You are treated like family in this establishment. Just like stepping into a traditional Istanbul eatery!...The open charcoal grill is amazing and if you can get a table opposite do so as it's great fun watching it being prepared. The food is a joy to consume. Be warned however you are well fed and not for folks on a diet!More

Great meal and customer service. Came here for a meal with our family. Wonderful food with succulent meat, plenty to go round with the mixed mezes. Arthur and mustapha very attentive and made our experience very pleasant and welcoming. Would definitely return when in Eastbourne.
