We are regulars here.... Love the mixture of exotic spices and dishes from various middle east regions... The staff are always so curteous... Try the dolmadas , the cigars and the lamb hot pot.. Yum!

The food was absolutely divine. We had the Turkish banquet and every dish was fresh, beautifully presented and packed full of flavour. The lamb cutlets were melt-in-the-mouth delicious. The service and coffee were exemplary. Thanks Dylan and staff, we can't wait to come back!

We tried this the day and found it to be surprisingly good. I say that because neither of us had ever tried the cuisine. We had the Mixed Grill and found the flavours much to our liking. Will definitely put this one on my to do again list.

I've been a regular here for some years. It has really well cooked, innovative Middle Eastern food. I highly recommend this for a good night out. The only negative is that it can be noisy at times.

A very busy place on a Friday night but the food was superb. The banquets were extensive and flavoursome. Service was excellent. A great place to visit and enjoy the cuisine.

A varied menu with some different dishes from other middle eastern restaurants. The shared platter of meat was very well presented and cooked. Service very good. I don't usually have dessert but we all tried something on the menu and were pleasantly surprised. Very reasonably priced.

Thank JimDon17
