We went for dinner without booking and the staff very kindly juggled a few bookings and found a table for us even though they were fully booked. Servings are large, Baklava is divine and bookings are essential. Well worth a visit!

You really do get what you pay for at this restaurant, especially if you're looking for something different from the usual burger, pizza or steak restaurant. Any lamb dish will blow you away! One of my favourites in George.

Great place. Rose oil and turkish delight as a welcoming gift. Good food; you get a lot for the price you pay. I would definitely recommend the Moussaka! Can take in your own wine. BONUS: Belly dancers on a Fri&Saturday evening, who really bring a...More
