Worth the trip to Elsternwick for the fabulous food. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I am always pleased to see an owner who visits every table - love the personal touch. Everything was so tasty and serves were large. Highly recommended.

The food was absolutely divine. We had the Turkish banquet and every dish was fresh, beautifully presented and packed full of flavour. The lamb cutlets were melt-in-the-mouth delicious. The service and coffee were exemplary. Thanks Dylan and staff, we can't wait to come back!
