Visited on a whim Saturday night - managed to get a table at 2000 - the place was full - always a good sign. 1st task finding the restaurant - entrance is down a side alley next to Ozman's Supermarket and a car lot, directly opposite the Cremorne Pub (good real ale and draft cider as a pre-restaurant drink).
Really friendly greeting - used our best holiday Turkish only to find the waiter was from Rotherham albeit of Turkish decent - the other Latvian - hey still friendly.
Starters we opted for for 3 off the Meze choice, a wonderfully creamy mix of cucumber, yogurt and garlic called Cacik, Arnavut Cigeri - chopped lambs livers on red onions - very tender and sweet and Borek - crispy pastry filled with feta cheese and parsley - could have done with more cheese - but still very good. Complimentary olives and bread.
Good choice - washed down with a bottle of Argentinian Red
Mains - there was a 45 min wait for these but as the place was packed understandable i went for the Mixed Skewer - mixed lamb kofta (spicy and well cooked), lamb fillet - tender and very lean, chicken fillet, chicken wings and a lamb chop served with rice and salad. Er' in Doors went for the Chicken Skewer (Tavuk Shish) - marinated chicken breasts - can't give you any feedback on this as she scoffed the lot - so had to be good - we also opted for another plate of the Cacik as it was so good.
The restaurant itself is 1st floor overlooking London Road and the skyline beyond, great big arched windows let in plenty of light, spacious placing of tables so that you aren't sat on each other and an open kitchen so that you can see the food being cooked - full bar etc.
Meal for 2 wine, drinks and tip £60 - very relaxed couldn't believe that it was 1030 before we left well worth a visit.
iyi akşamlar, çok teşekkür ederim (Thank you, good evening)
