“Amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

Visited cin bal with my husband and some friends we met on holiday, never heard of it before even though been to the area many times!! The food was divine!!! I don't eat lamb normally but the slow cooked lamb was to die for!!! Loved that you had a little barbecue to cook your own lamb meatballs chicken and veg!! Would go every day if I could lol!!!

“Should be ranked number 1 in area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Given the competition of "jack of all trades, masters of none" typed restaurants in the area cin bal is from my experience the only place offering something genuinely authentic. It's mercifully set in remote country side away from the vulgarity if the Hisaronu high street and should be top of everyone's favourites. The slow baked lamb (kuzu tandir) is sold by weight and served without fat or bones. Nice selection of meze and the best fresh home made chips in the world. You can order a bar b q and grill your own meats with selection of cuts from lamb or chicken or they will cook it for you. Not just prime cuts on offer either as hearts, liver and kidneys all ready for grilling are available too. One of the best places in the whole country from my 2 years living here.

“More expensive than most”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

But worth it. Decent food, we opted for a kilo of lamb for 3 of us and let them cook it. The smell of others BBQ's added to the atmosphere but was a bit overpowering. Price is more expensive than most in the area but still cheap and is worth a visit. For those with children, well worth a visit due to large play area

“Great outdoor eating experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

We've visited here a few times in the past, but not for several years. I'm pleased to say the food is still every bit as good as it used to be.
The place is huge, although as it is set out in different sections you don't feel lost.
After choosing a table we went inside to choose our meze starters, which were all good. However a few of these were forgotten about and we had to remind the waiters to bring them. We also chose the meat inside which was then brought to the end of our table with the barbecue for us to cook ourselves. Some more sturdy barbecue implements wouldn't go amiss here!
The food we had was lovely.
Service was fine, though nothing exceptional. We also felt that were were being rushed out at the end of the evening. It wasn't even 10.30pm and all the staff were standing around clearly waiting for us to vacate our table and leave.
We will probably go back if we are in the area as we like the experience and the food was good. However we did notice other similar places nearby which we might investigate instead.
