“Very nice food and location, but not so good service”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The non-Turkish style foods served in Vanilla were very much welcome, after our 2+ weeks holiday in Turkey, although we did enjoyed many good Turkish meals. Therefore, we eat in Vanilla three times, even though the price in Vanilla was high. The air-conditioned indoor restaurant is nicely furnished.
However, the service was impersonal and not-friendly.

“what a treat!!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

it was so hot, 30*, that sitting inside this air-conditioned restaurant was heaven. the patio looked fairly attractive, however we were quite happy inside. it was also great in that there were doors and no feral cats could wander around while we ate, a common occurrence in turkey that I never got used to. I had delicious thai green curry with chicken and rice and my husband had an amazing salad. we were happy with the wine. the server was friendly and proficient. lovely décor. do go, you won't be disappointed!

“Beautiful food with great service”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was such a welcome surprise during our trip in Turkey. Although we are big believers in eating local food after a few weeks of local cuisine in Greece and Turkey we were over the moon to experience London quality food. We were really spoilt with the service, the wine was excellent and the chef came out to discuss the Gluten Free options for myself & even adapted some of the meals for me. The ribs were fantastic and the daily mussels were delicious! We even went again the following night.

“Best food around & a wonderful service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We went there 3 times because we all enjoyed the food so much. We are not that easy to please either, all of us have or do work in the restaurant industry so can be quite critical. However this place met all our expectations and more! I particularly enjoyed the chicken Thai curry, followed by Baklava. My daughters had pastas and pizzas meatballs duck leg etc and they were all delicious.
I think it's the best food around Kaleici by far. Also the portions are not at all small like someone has reviewed! They are perfect.
Also the service was excellent, thank you.
