I've travel a lot and this is by far the worst shawarma i've ever tried. Small portions, not tasty at all and the prices are high for what you get. Don't eat here!!!

We were inspired to visit after visiting the Turkish Bazaar further up Pantai Tengah and noticed that they sold dolmas, esme and humous all made by 'istanbul restaurant'. The guy in the shop told us that they were all homemade and that we should try his restaurant. We took some dolmas and esme back to our hotel and they were... More

Please don't waste your time coming here, the food is absolute rubbish! Limited menu, we ordered the vege mousaka, houmous and ezme, none of them tasted anywhere close to Turkish food.

The first night we arrived in Langkawi, we ended up having dinner at this restaurant but we were disappointed both by the quality of the food and the overall, expensive prices. The pictures on their menu definitely do not correspond to what the plates looked like. The waitress tried to convince us (a bit too hard for my taste) to... More

My husband and I went here last night for dinner. The waitress was grumpy and unhelpful. She was rushing and pressuring us to order. We were told the portions were big -nope. The hummus was not the worst I've had, but not far behind. It was swimming in oil and tasted old. I had asked if the shawarma came with... More

Sorry! But I can't recommend this place. Well the food was good, but the plate the size of a child dish and to expensive compared. The service is as cold as you can imagine. She put my plate in front of me, never look at me and turn around. You don't leave a tip to that kind of people, so... More

We had hummus for share which came first, hummus was really cold and thick doesn't looks fresh. And chicken wrap (shawarma) was ok, but only one size (R) they don't do small for someone reason... And also we receive the bill with extra service charge (10%) on the top. There is no say that on menu or somewhere else. And... More

While walking past this restaurant late one evening, we stopped and started chatting to a lady outside. She seemed really friendly and won us over. Between myself and my partner, we agreed to take our daughter there the next evening as turkish food is our familys idea of 'food heaven'. So thats where we went tonight. What a mistake!!!!! And...

Orded traditional Turkish kebab and fries when it arrived I was shocked I've never seen a kebab so small and it was presented on a polystyrene tray. I had a breaky wrap from a well known fast food joint a while ago and it was smaller than that, I was told the fries would follow shortly. Ten minutes later the... More
