Great place with amazing food and great staff. Being BYO is also a great asset. We had the shared mezze plate (there were six of us) and shared four mains. Great flavours. Definitely will come back. Sat outside which was lovely on a very hot night. Good breezes.

Every mouthful was a taste of heaven. I have been here twice now and Caravanserai doesn't disappoint with atmosphere and service. We ordered the Olive and Haloumi for a starter (YUM) and the share plate for two (YUM YUM YUM). Next time we will just get the share plate as it was more than enough for the two of us.... More

This is an unpretentious little Turkish resaurant, a little out of the way of the city. The place is quite busy and can get noisy making it hard to chat. We enjoyed sitting outside on the back verandah - there's heaters out there as well in case it gets a little chilly - which it did when we visited. I... More

Friday lunch time at the Caravanserai sees the restaurant empty. The setting is basic, the menu as well,be it that the dishes are authentically Turkish. Food is well prepared, my chicken skewers are well prepared, but the dish as a whole nothing to write home about. Even the price is average. Wine is BYO.

I went to this restaurant 2 weeks ago and I was amazed by the atmosphere. I heard a lot about it before so I was keen to give it a try. It's BYO so if you wanna enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, you have to bring it yourself. Service was very friendly and quick even though it... More

The food was great, and the place is wonderfully decorated. The staff were quite friendly and helpful in all manners of service. There were two downsides for me, it was pretty noisy and lots of movement happening around our table, the second point was that it was definitely not good value for money. I ordered the spinach and goats cheese... More
