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.

We had a choice of 3 Turkish restaurants close to each other and chose this one because it offered a lunchtime menu, and was also more attractively priced. It was a good choice. The staff were delightful and very friendly and helpful. We were brought a free puffed up flatbread with both black and green olives. The Turkish house red wine was very good indeed and our choices: halloumi spinach casserole and Adana Kebabs (minced lamb) were also super. My lamb was some of the most succulent I have tasted and the finely chopped halloumi in its spinach sauce was very tasty. My turkish coffee came in a lovely metal container and the staff gave us a free Turkish tea before we left. A restaurant that deserves to do well.

I wanted to try this restaurant with a few friends before coming with a larger group in a couple of weeks’ time as a birthday celebration to make sure we wouldn’t be disappointed! The atmosphere (helped by quite loud but lovely Turkish music!) is good and the decor attractive and authentic. Very friendly staff who took our drink then food orders fairly promptly. We shared a delicious Meze platter to start then each had traditional main course, also very tasty followed by coffee. Worth the money and looking forward to returning in a few weeks, when I really hope we, as a larger group, enjoy the same service and quality of food.

We had an outside table and it was honestly like being on holiday. The atmosphere was great and the service excellent. The food was absolutely delicious and arrived in a timely manner with wonderful presentation, we chose a selection of starters (hummus, bread, Halloumi and squid) followed by lamb and chicken meals with salads. They have an outside bar area which added to the great atmosphere and their cocktails are really excellent value for money and really big as well!! Overall, highly recommended and a welcome change from all the Italian chain restaurants!

Although it was quite a busy evening it wasn’t full but the staff were all over the place. One man seated us, and then we waited over 10 minutes before a lady took our drinks order. These arrived another 10 minutes later by a different waiter. He only poured the wine but couldn’t take the food order! Another 15 minutes went by and our lady returned for the food order. Three of our dinners arrived fairly promptly, but if you’re hungry don’t order anything that claims to be large, it’s smaller than a kids meal! My husbands ‘mixed grill’ was more than 10 minutes after ours and was just a plate of chicken and lamb nuggets, oh and a lamb cutlet ..... not what was expected at all. All the food was very tasty but small portions and service was haphazard and very slow. Some of the staff don’t speak English and others were just standing around trying very hard not to catch your eye. We didn’t stay for dessert, after over 2 hours having just one course our patience was exhausted. I have waited ages for a Turkish restaurant to arrive in Horsham so really disappointed with this one.

Plastered all over their website is the fact they do Breakfast from 09.00 to 13.00 on a Sunday. We went there and the place was all shut up. A guy came to the door who had no manners at all. I asked if they were opening for breakfast and he said "no, not until lunch" so I asked why they advertised breakfast on their website and got met with a very loud grunt and when I asked again apparently all of the sudden he didnt speak English. He then turned around and pretty much shut the door in our face. You would think with the competition of the Izmir in the town they would offer better customer service. The staff at the Izmir are extremely polite and welcoming where the staff at Zeytin couldn't care less. Needless to say I wont be returning and I really do think you should only advertise the service you are offering on the website, not something you cannot supply. Not a very good start for a new venture in the town.

Ate here last night as a group of 4. Food was delicious, we shared a cold meze starter and then a variety of main courses. All very tasty! Service was great, the Turkish white wine was lovely. Only negative is the service charge on the bill-it was in the middle of the bill and there was nothing to say it was optional. Service was worth it and we paid it, but it should be an option. Place is well worth a visit.

We arrived at 7.30pm, we only ordered mains and drinks, the food didn't arrive till 9pm, by then I'd almost lost interest in eating. Mine was also missing an element of the dish. Whilst it tasted nice, the meat was very fatty. If you're nervous about crowds and eating out at the moment, I wouldn't come here, it was very busy. I felt like they compromised on saftey measures to fit more people in. The kitchen was clearly over whelmed and it made for a unpleasant experience. I wouldn't return.

I have used Zeytin for a sit down meal before the Covid Crisis and many times since lock down as take away. The food is always excellent & freshly cooked and always value for money. For example an Adana Kebab & chips along with 2 taleaway beers is just over £20. You also get a free salad, sweet and a portion of Turkish bread. I go once a week and the people there are friendly and caring. Can't rate this Ziytin highly enough.

We decided to try this new Turkish restaurant as had heard good reviews............ We arrived at 7.30pm and asked for a table for 2. The lady at the bar pointed to a table and said is that OK for you? We sat down at the table and waited, and waited....... Another party of approximately 6/8 people came in, where shown to their seats and offered a menu. We were there 10/12 minutes without any menu being offered or drinks. A waitress did come over and try to give us some drinks that obviously another table had ordered. However, she did not ask if a drinks order had been taken or even had we looked at the menu.

Booked earlier and the manager could not find our booking in the registry. Was expecting a reasonable quantum of adana kebab and mixed grill but we were served salad more than grill as if we paying for greenery. Food was not tasty at all, lamb chops was not well cooked. The manager nor waiter did not care to ask how the food was. Better order elsewhere to have good quality food and especially value for money!

Went out for a business evening meal with my colleagues. I have been to Zeytin a few times now and each time left happy. The staff are very friendly and the food is very enjoyable and tasty. We opted for the Zeytin platter - portions are so generous both in starters and main course. My guests had not eaten here before and said they would definitely be returning! I particularly loved the Christmas tree outside -definitely gets you in the festive spirit. My one little comment would be the music was a little loud. On a busy evening this would have been fine but there were only a few tables in so seemed louder. Will be returning ideally before Christmas but definitely in the new year! We each had a glass of wine and with our food was £20 per person so reasonable for what we got. Highly recommend.

The best in Horsham. The food is always beautifully prepared and cooked to perfection. I ordered a lamb shish which came served on a bed of fluffy white rice and it was delicious - the meat was tender and very well-seasoned. The menu offers something to suit all, with a very wide variety of both hot and cold dishes including traditional kebabs, mezes and sharing platters. We have been regularly ordering takeaways since the lockdown and are greatly anticipating being able to enjoy the restaurant's wonderful atmosphere and service again soon. I have recommended to several people and will continue to do so. Teşekkür ederim!

Last night we met with some friends to eat at Zeytin in Horsham, it started alright but slowly went downhill from then on in. It was fairly quiet when we arrived but slowly got busier, we ordered drinks to start while we browsed the menus, we ordered our food and the starters arrived all was going fairly well up until now when we noticed all the other tables around us had been given the large pitta breads and garlic butter to share whilst waiting, when it came to the mains 3 turned up and I was still waiting for mine, so I said to my Wife and Friends to start as it was a little windy where were sat. We noticed the Table opposite getting their starters and 2nd large Pitta bread, so we can only assume the 1st should have been ours, I asked the waitress where was my meal as by now the others were ploughing their way through theirs, it was at this point we discovered my Main had been delivered opposite with their starters which they decided to tuck into although they hadn’t ordered any prawns for starters and thought they were mussels. They took the meal away and said they would get another one by which time the others on the Table had nearly finished, when it turned up they had obviously added the few prawns the other table had eaten but had kept the others hot somehow which rendered them tough and inedible. We have previously eaten here a few times and to say we were disappointed was an understatement as we had told our Friends how great it was. Also we ordered a bottle of wine which we had to ask 3 times for. It was such a shame as the staff on that night were just young girls and needed more training as a couple seemed lost and out of their depth with a busy Restaurant.

Hello, we are really sorry to hear you weren't happy with the service you received. We did correct the dish for you and cooked you a fresh king prawns meal which is why it took a bit longer to arrive. I can assure you we did not take prawns from the incorrect meal and every thing was cooked fresh. With regards to our staff, I am sure you can understand that they are new and doing the best they can. It has been incredibly difficult to find staff with long term experience at the moment due to a variety of reasons. Many places have closed due to staffing issues. Our staff are trained and a few are still new and finding their feet. I hope you will give us a try again and apologise for the mix up with the table service. This is not normally how we operate.

Hands down THE best restaurant in town. I've been so many times with friends and family and don't see that stopping. The food is exceptional and cooked to perfection. The portions are extremely generous and very reasonably priced considering the amount and the quality of the meat in the dishes. Having been to Turkey a few times, I can say the food tastes extremely authentic. The lamb especially literally melts in your mouth! Their cocktail list is extensive and well worth a try. The owner and waiters are all so personable and friendly. They have recently introduced entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings which is brilliant. You can see how they put their hearts and souls into this restaurant. The entertainment is typically Turkish and tongue in cheek. Really good atmosphere getting people up and dancing at the end of the night too which sets them apart completely from other restaurants. You can go for a chilled, delicious meal and then end the night having a dance/sing along with all the staff and come away having had the best night. Smiles and happy bellies all round. Love Zeytin!

I love Turkish food and for years we have been without a Turkish restaurant in Horsham and now we have 3. Last night we went to Zeytin for the first time, wow what a wonderful time we had. Just walking into the beautiful front garden with olive trees decorated with blue glass eyes we were warmly greeted by a Fez wearing waiter who took us upstairs to a very nice table. The place was buzzing and has a really great atmosphere. We ordered a Turkish Red Shiraz , delicious and then were given a complimentary platter of pide with butter, chilli 🌶 sauce and garlic sauce which was a lovely touch. We ordered then a hot mezze sharing platter with a selection of delicious Turkish traditional dishes. We were beginning to get quite full . The mains come with a choice of rice , fries or bulgar and also a fresh salad. We all had different lamb dishes and they were all grilled to perfection. Afterwards we enjoyed Turkish and mint tea. I was so impressed by the quality of food and the excellent attentive staff. This has now become my favourite restaurant in Horsham and there are plenty to choose from!
