Great food and good Service, always so good, just wish we were local
Busy restaurant, with great staff and food. Worked perfectly with visiting overseas clients.
Excellent service and great food. Recommend this place for sure.
The food was great snd the atmosphere fab, staff very good
I still love this place, the food is always good and it represents good value for money although the drinks prices seem to have gone up recently. It still lacks the personal touch and warmth that it used to have (when Bella was the Manager) although the staff are efficient. One word of warning though - I don't know what prompted me to ask but after years of being a loyal customer on this visit I asked the waiting staff if they actually receive the service charge (which on this occasion was very high as we were a group with a large bill) - I was told that no they do not - the owners keep it ! It is a pet hate of mine when greedy restaurant owners keep the service charge and I certainly will never pay service charge here again, if indeed I go back - the Haz on Bishopsgate is as good as here for food, price and atmosphere and unless there are a few changes at Fora I may switch my loyalty.
Four of us enjoyed some good food with attentive service in a sparsely populated room. This due probably to it being a warm day and also a bank holiday weekend. The atmosphere was quiet with the exception of background music, which was intrusive. This could and should have been reduced in volume as there were only a few diners. The compulsory service charge of 12.5% is ridiculous in this day and age, maybe the staff do earn low wages but service charge should be at the customer's discretion. We were just presented with this 12.5% charge, regardless as to the quality of service, which in our case was very good and I would probably have rounded up the bill to something marginally higher. My previous visit was a much more enjoyable occasion, with a good atmosphere and busy feel to the place. Also we were entertained by a musician.
Excellent food and very good service. My reservation for a table of 7 (lunchtime) was made through Quandoo, however the restaurant had not received it and we were not booked in. No fuss was made and a table was quickly made available for us. Although no gluten free menu was available, I was given options by the waitress who checked my selection with the chef. The food was well presented and well priced. The atmosphere was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Hi, the food is usually great but your staff needs to learn to deal with special requirements. The only thing I cannot eat are peppers: red, yellow, green. I have expressly asked the waiter if there are any fresh peppers in the side vegetables to the Lamb adana kofta. She's promised to remove/not to put them in. She brought the food with them, placed my plate on my colleague's side; then swapped, then I have pointed out that there are plenty of peppers in my vegetables; she apologized me and took my plate to the kitchen to remove them. But it appeared then that she/chef simply took the pepper bits out and left the same vegetables. My stomach cannot stand the smell of peppers but I was left with the vegetables with a strong smell of peppers. Could not eat them at all. And also felt awkward in front of the colleague.
12 of us went for a team lunch, the restaurant was very busy however there wasn't any moment that we've waited for something. Everything was ready on time, very quick and efficient service. All staff are very friendly and food was absolutely delicious! We all loved it. The Fora City is now our new spot for team lunches!
Incredible food, service, atmosphere & entertainment! Rarely have I had such a fine dining experience as much as I have had in Fora. But everything here was top notch; the starters, main, dessert and wine were all to die for. Wonderful Turkish/Meditteranean cuisine. Returning soon with my parents in tow so they can experience Fora for themselves.
