We were recommended this place by some friends and was very pleased that they did. The food was beautiful, the service was good and the owners very friendly and enjoy having a chat with you. We will definitely visit again when we are down that way.

We've had kebabs from here on many occasions and never been disappointed. Especially good are the chicken shish, Esme salad, and smokey aubergine dip 😋 really fresh, really yummy and about as healthy as you can get for takeaway food! Love this place 👍🏼

We have been to the Istanbul several times and enjoyed it very much. The food is freshly prepared and charcoal grilled. Don't be put off if the restaurant seems quiet. They also run a take away which is busy. While you wait for your order to arrive you get home made humous and flat breads. There is also apple tea... More

The Istanbul doesn't look much from the outside, you have to go through a takeaway counter to get to the restaurant itself, but it is a worthwhile discovery. Very welcoming at what is clearly a family run establishment, we were made to feel at home. Excellent free bread and hummus to nibble on while we selected from the menu. Taking... More

Wasnt sure what to expect when I popped in here. The takeaway was busy but as the restaurant was very quiet which had me a bit worried. Couldn't have been more wrong. Complimentary flat bread and a lovely hummous was a nice touch. For starter I had the Mini Shish Trio. Perfectly cooked bite sized lamb and chicken pieces with... More

Having tried the Chinese, the Thai and the Indian (all ok but mediocre), we were looking for something a bit different. Having never had this cuisine before we thought we'd give it a go and WOW!! This the best value meal for two we have had in Honiton, and the food was delicious. Looking forward to returning again!!

We visited the Honiton carnival and were looking for somewhere to eat afterwards, everywhere had either stopped serving or wasn't doing food. We weren't sure what we were going to do and were walking back to the car when we spotted what looked like a takeaway with a table in the window. We called in and they had a table... More

I have visited Turkey many times and enjoy Turkish food but I must say this is the best!. Reasonably priced, friendly staff. Shame for them that it wasn't busier..Drinks reasonably priced apart the beer.
