Ordered what was supposed to be a 'banquet' that everyone could share. Instead everyone got a bit of everything on their plate. Loads of food for starter and main course but quality was poor. Ovecooked meat, dry stodge. I thought the concept of cuttiing a tomato in half and putting it on the plate as part of a salad (alongside... More

Been coming here 10years plus. Ordered the mussaka. The portion seems to have shrunk by 75% and actually looks rather sad in its bowl. Sad being what this restaurant now is due to relentless penny pinching. £12 for a dish the size of a beer mat that was 90% potato anyway. Won't be back.

Excellent. Pre-theatre meal at this lovely independent Turkish restaurant. Good traditional Turkish cuisine with friendly service and happy for me to practise my limited Turkish. Complimentary nibbles and fruit.

a lovely little find in the centre of Nottingham near the cornerhouse. I'd say if your new to the area avoid all the high street chain restaurants and come to this little gem. The staff were so welcoming, food was delicious (we went for the poached lamb and the lamb kebabs... delicious!). We got so many extras too including bread,... More

This is a lovely Turkish restaurant - good value, delicious food, very good service and a thoroughly pleasant experience. Very good value for a two course meal for two of us, wine and coffee - £30. I had two vegetarian options - mushrooms in cream to start with (lots of them and very tasty) followed by aubergine moussaka. On the... More

Great Turkish food, particularly with a wide selection of vegetarian choices. We recommend both of the meze platters as starters. They were great with a complementary plate of crudités and bread and then after the meal there was complementary fruit to end things off well. It wasn't my absolute favourite Turkish place ever, but it was still excellent food at... More

We walked around the food quarter and chose this restaurant as it smelled so good and looked beat and tidy from the outside. There were a few people in there too which is usually a good sign, right? We thought so too. But unfortunately nothing was freshly cooked. Beans etc were all from a tin in fact most of our... More

Came across Antalya for a late lunch on a busy Saturday and were delighted in every way - friendly service, EFES beer and excellent Turkish cuisine (huge choice and the lunchtime deal is a steal!), very atmospheric with the authentic music and low key lighting. A genuine oasis two minutes from the Victoria Centre and the bustling streets of the... More
