The wife and I popped in last night for a meal. As usual (been half a dozen times) the staff were friendly and atmosphere was great. The food - after all the main thing you come for was delicious and having lived in Turkey for 3 years I have to say it's the most authentic we have tried. Can't wait to go back.

The football was on tv and we were close by so we thought we would pop in.
The restaurant was understandably quiet but this turned into our advantage as we where given full attention.
We decided to go for the Sultans platter 3 course.
Each course was cooked fresh and it was presented beautifully.
Each mouthful was a delight and a different flavour each time.
The waiter was friendly and polite and didn't rush us.
We will be going back to try something else on this menu.
Well done to the team at baraca.

In the entrance of the restaurant, the waiter welcomed us very warm! We had mix grill and a meze platter, I can say very tasty but a bit expensive according to the quantity of the food! Music was lovely from the beginning, but the best was when the boss understood that we are Greek, so he played greek music for us!! We felt very quickly familiar with the stuff!!! We recommend it!!

We went to this restaurant early on a Saturday evening after looking at reviews on Trip Advisor. From the outside it looks a bit dark and cafe like. But we got a warm welcome and shown to a table. Lots of choice on the menu and the waiter was happy to advise us on wether we needed sides etc (he was right we didn't, portions are quite generous). Food was delicious and flavoursome and the complimentary home made chilli sauce packed a tasty punch! We thought it was good value for money and would suit couples, families or groups.
