Six of us had an amazing meal here to celebrate a 50th birthday. We had party menu 3. The food was amazing. So much of it too. We all left there very full!! Perfectly located for a meal after the Jack the Ripper tour.

The food here was delicious and really reasonable. We essentially had a starter and a HUGE lamb shank for £14. Delicious. Great ambience too. Definitely recommend it!

very nice selection of appetizers, with all the classics that do not disappoint. The menu is rich and offers a good choice among Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine, all well presented and in a nice environment. Staff is great, very good service. Wine is a bit overpriced and there are just a couple of beers to choose from. All in all... More

This is a great find. Fora had been recommended and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was quiet at 9.30, but its that time of year. All the staff were attentive and friendly. Tables had been arranged to seat 10 in a square, as a round table was not big enough. This was a very thoughtful touch. We had Party... More

A group of us came here prior to spending the evening at the Swingers crazy golf and we all really enjoyed it! The food and service were good and the restaurant was clean and well fitted out. Some dishes were a little different to what we'd had in Turkey, but overall the experience was a good one! Would come back... More

Decent location. Parking is a premium but it's expected. Waiter and waitress very accommodating. There are loads of Turkish restaurants around and this didn't stand out as anything amazing.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and can honestly say its one of the best lunch time venues in the area. Much better than the place opposite serving the same fare that shall remain nameless :) I have tied numerous starters (particularly like the liver dishes) and mains including fish and meat and never been disappointed.

I had the kebab starter and vegetable mix (can't remember the name), the food was excellent. The other dish was the vegetable moussaka which I'm told was also excellent. Bread at the start was also a treat. The service was attentive and not intrusive, friendly. Good knowledge of what was in the food as I'm vegan and asked about dairy... More
