Visited this restaurant for second time with a friend and was so happy to find that the same important standards in both food, hosting and giving guests a great experience are still to be found in this special family run place! We just started with hot delicious pitta and a selection of dips as we were talking and catching up with a friend but extra pittas came and drinks were topped up! I had the delicious slightly spicy lamb kofte kebabs with a side of spicy sauce and the fabulous Turkish rice which is like a mixture of flavoursome rice and vermicelli and veggies - Mmm! Hubby had a yummy falling off the bone Lamb dish akin to Kleftico but not, if you see what I mean! We chose a Red Turkish wine this time that was so well matched to food and complimented not domineered. For dessert we had to have the Kadif! To die for! We were also given mouth cleansing chunks of the loveliest fresh seedless Watermelon between mains and dessert! Yummy! The meal ended with my fave Turkish coffee, Hubby had his fave Apple Tea and our guest had the Black Tea which he said was good! So a delightful meal and left feeling stuffed and well cared for!

Went for the first time July 5. This is a small family run restaurant not actually in Hamlet Court Road but in Canewdon Road. Open for only evening meals, not at lunchtime. The service is excellent, friendly and helpful. There is a good choice of hot and cold starters. Not such a large choice of mains, mostly chicken and lamb but very tasty. (I did think the meatball starters would come with something other than just pitta bread. Perhaps minted yoghourt?)
Definitely will return.
They do not have a web site so it is not possible to see the menu online.
Oh - and the tables could be a little larger. We did mention this and the waitress said that next time we four could readily sit at a table for six if it is not booked.

Having been to this restaurant three times now, we are still wrapped with excitement each time we return. The food is just amazing. We're always finding new things to try on the menu and enjoying every dish we've tried. Book in advance as this great family restaurants secret is getting out!

Our monthly date night took us to this Turkish restaurant based on Trip Advisor. Great food let down only by paper towel napkins in an otherwise upmarket setting. I would also like to see fish on the menu instead of just chicken and lamb. What they did serve was tasty, fresh and piping hot. Recommended.
