This is one of my favourite restaurants in Aberdeen and I do visit on a regular basis. This visit was at lunchtime on a Friday with my friend who has a gluten free diet. We have been previously and the staff are excellent for advising which dishes suit a gluten free diet. We had a Spree Voucher for the Vezir Sofrasi which is a selection of hot and cold meze, and is superb for a lunchtime, but were unsure if this would suit my friend or not, however again the staff were knowledgeable and gave their advice. The selection of dishes were delicious, and came served with a basket of pitta bread for me and a separate basket of gluten free pitta for my friend. Neither of us had work to return to on Friday afternoon and the staff were happy to let us sit and catch up, long after we had enjoyed our delicious lunch. Give this restaurant a try, you will certainly not be disappointed, however you are always best to book, as it is quite small and very popular.

Went with no prior knowledge. From the outside looks like a fairly upmarket restaurant, inside more like a cafe but this does not detract from the food or overall experience. The three of us had the 2 meze, 1 chicken wings and I calamari. Plenty for a Sunday main course with enough room for the puds. Meze slightly vegetable biased for our 24 year old carnivore son but still plenty for everyone and the flavours were amazing, light and zesty. Puds all very good. Pistachio ice cream the best I have tasted for a while. Baklava (the only food in the world which needs to be made less sweet for the Scottish palate) was perfect.

Nice place with excellent service. Food is good too but it's not authentic Turkish cuisine, better than our visit here last time for sure, I would describe it as more Mediterranean restaurant rather than Turkish, prices are a bit on a up side but that's understandable as it's prime location in Aberdeen.

Bright airy and modern with friendly quick and efficient staff. This seemed like a perfect place for people to meet up in groups. The various Mezze options are an easy way to order and sample selection of dishes on the menu although we were a table of 6 and some of the portion sizes seemed a little small for 6 to share if everyone wanted to tuck in to one particular favourite, but having said that in total there was more than enough food for all. We had a great night and staff did not hassle for table back. Can see why this venue is popular with groups and couples could of course choose their own dishes! A lovely farewell night to great friends!

We had a fantastic meal here for a recent special birthday. We were 13 ranging from a 14 month old, 7 and 9 year olds through to the grandparents! The staff were great during the booking, even suggesting I take decorations (kept minimal) and a cake in advance for the day. Catered for the wee one, vegetarians and vegans with no fuss or bother. Service during the meal super. Restaurant very busy but did not affect us and great to see somewhere so busy at 16.30 in the afternoon! Never had a bad meal here happy to say.
