What is such a fantastic, totally authentic Turkish restaurant serving food of this quality doing in Harwich. It outshines all the other Turkish restaurants we have eaten in by miles. We called in on a weekday evening in mid-May and were glad we had booked. By 7.30pm it was busy. We were greeted by the owner/chef who took great pains to explain his dishes and the wine (all Turkish) on offer and we enjoyed a very reasonably priced, three-course meal. Service was efficient but never pushy and we were made to feel special. The food was outstanding. We had Izgara Sukuk and Izgara Hellim to start, followed by Musakka and Kuzu Incik, all of which were really good. We were actually travelling on the late ferry from Harwich International Port so were able to park up, get on the train to Harwich (every 30 minutes), have a stroll and enjoy this relaxed meal and still get a train back to the ferry well in time to check in. A memorable start to our holiday. Thank you!

Beautiful people, friendly and polite. Personally i did not like the food as it was not arabic enough for me. I have a lot of experience of arabic food, I make it better myself. Cannot fault the service which made the time there fun. Found the food tasteless, as I simply love spices, which this lacked. unfortunately I would not go back again. However, I do think its worth a try for those who want to try something different.

Just a quick response to this, we feel that as we are a TURKISH restaurant, your review on our lack of Arabic flavours and spices is unjustified. We welcome your feedback and would love for you to come in and see us again. We welcome all feedback as this gives us the impetus to forge forward and provide a more pleasing customer experience.
Once again, please call in again and thank you for your feedback.

We fancied a light supper and were impressed with the flavours of the food and very friendly service.
The smoked salmon salad was fresh and had a very generous portion of salmon.
My lofted with tomato sauce was freshly prepared with a good flavour.
A nice afoot and good value and quality.
