“yummy”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

went at the weekend with friends, and it was fab. the staff very friendly and helpful. food was really nice, very fresh. Everything about this place is fab. It is a must go to place, you might think it a bit expensive, but worth every penny. I can't think of anything bad to say, they didn't huff and puff because you couldn't decide what to have, like you get at other places.

Went to this restaurant for an evening meal tonight-the food was plenty,excellently cooked and very good value for money. I could not fault any of the food at all. The service was top class.The surroundings were very relaxing and comfortable. Would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We were really excited about trying this one, as we had seen all the fantastic reviews.

Lovely warm welcome from the staff, and the place is spotless. Tables are pretty cramped, but accept they have to get as many people in as they can.

Service was friendly and efficient, order taken quickly and food arrived promptly.

We had the hot mezzes starter, about 5 different things but the only item worth a mention was the Lamb & Feta roll which was divine. It was also the only thing which was hot, so that may have affected the taste of the other items?

For mains we had the Iskender, a huge portion but again not very hot and flavour just ok. The Chicken Cluck was better, quite spicy but not hugely memorable.

Think if we had come with no expectations we probably would have thought it was ok, but reading the rave reviews we just expected more.
