“Great Little Place!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Went for dinner in the Instanbul Grill on a Saturday night with my Fiancée. We have drove past the place a few times and it has always been really busy so thought we would give it a try. The place was again busy at 20:00 on Saturday with about 20-25 people in (can seat around 35). You get a free starter of Turkish bread, salad and a couple of dipping sauces which is a nice touch. Beer is Efes which is nice and the other half really loved the house Turkish rose wine.

We had the Instanbul Special for 2 which had all the different types of meat (lambs ribs, chicken shish, lamb shish, chicken wings etc.) rice and some char grilled veg. Food was really quick, hot and very nice. Also the perfect amount of food for 2 people as we were both stuffed by the end.

Overall a great little place with nice theming, friendly atmosphere and great food for a reasonably price, would definitely recommend a visit!

“Food Was OK”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Went there with friends after work to have dinner. The food was OK and I think was a bit overpriced. I will think twice before going there again.

“Large Party Birthday meal”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Attended on Sat the 15th of Feb 2014 for my sisters 50th Birthday meal. The staff were very friendly. Due to the size of our party(28), the meal took around 45min to arrive. Food was freshly cooked to a nice standard. The only downside was the mix up with our Bill. We were charged for wine despite not drinking wine. Our table was charged around £80.00 too much. We paid the original Bill as only noticed excess cost later that evening. unfortunately the owner will not print the Bill again and discuss our claim.

“Geniune Turkish feel”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Excellent food. As mentioned more a turkish cafe than resturant. Service if anything too quick! Well worth a try for that Turkish experience.
