It was a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon and we were rather hungry having arrived rather late for lunch. We left feeling very full, despite only spending £16 each on a 2 course meal with a hot and cold drink each - this is excellent value for London.
Obviously not part of a chain and family owned, service was welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive. While we waited for the starters to arrive, we were given a basket of bread with 2 nicely presented salads to share (apparently free).
For starters, we both ordered arnavut cigeri - diced Lamb's liver with parsley, tomato and onion. This was quite a large portion for a starter and the liver was perfectly cooked to my liking and nicely but subtly seasoned.
For main, I ordered beyti - 3 sausage shaped lamb mince patties flavoured with garlic and parsley served with 2 types of rice and salad - one plain boiled and the other mixed with a tangy red sauce. Everything was hot, not too spicy and the char-grilling was subtle and not over-carbonized as often happens with this type of cooking.
We ordered a glass of ayran (jogurt drink) each with a coffee and when we declined dessert (we were very full by this stage!) - we were given 2 cubes each of what looked like Turkish delight, but I think was flavoured with honey - haven't come across these before.
We will definitely return to this place when next in the area.
