Had a meal here having walked past the front of house for years. Nice food , gods portion size (we had the set menu) and quick courteous service. Only down sides are the layout of the restraint which if you are sat at a middle table as we were you feel quite hemmed in. Secondly the smokers go out front to puff and the fumes drift in. Overall though a pleasant meal and I would eat here again.

The mezze platter was great - lots of variety, everything was authentic and tasted lovely. We went at 6pm and there was only one other couple in there at the start, but the service was hit and miss by the end when it started filling up and the 2 staff didn't seem to be aware that we'd finished and needed to get the bill. The thing that really jarred was the smell of smoking drifting through; I assume it was from the back door being left open, and it was pretty off-putting.

Tried twice to get in Raja early no joy, on my way back to the hotel realised the bus went past here so jumped off. Good for me lovely kofte with mince, followed by one of the house specials of mixed kebab which I just about got through. Nice food young lady behind bar was great and the 'older' gents kept us honest you need to find it not really in town but just down from parkers piece and on the park and ride route!

We visited here on a Groupon deal. At the last minute we had to telephone to ask to delay our booking for an hour. This was no problem. On arrival, we were immediately shown to our (clean) table. We asked for water and received, very quickly, a jug of tap water - also no problem. We then received a complimentary dish of olives and chillies. The signs were good! We had one course of cold mezes and then another of hot. The waiter took the trouble to tell us what they all were. The food was good - not outstanding but very good. We finished with Turkish coffee - very, very good and spectacularly hot! The service throughout was very pleasant indeed. Incidentally, the toilets are befitting of a 5* hotel! All in all, we had a very pleasant evening.
Our only criticism would be that, looking at the menu afterwards, we felt that the standard prices were just a little too high to be acceptable.

It is in center of Cambridge, beautifully decorated with Turkish paintings and wall art.

Good food, fresh, right temperature; though I didn't like the groupon platter idea much after having it. Would prefer a proper dinner next time.

Staff is efficient and friendly; courteous and took time to tell about every Turkish dish on the platter. And they also served big slices of water melon 'on the house'.
