The food was excellent and good value for money, we had children with us and we're pleased to see there was a children's menu for only 5.95. Good choice of wines and very good service.

Really tasty fresh food, very friendly and helpful staff and excellent service. Sat in the covered outdoor area, protected from the sun and away from the traffic - a lovely eating experience!

Good food, atmosphere and service, nothing to fault. Mixed meze starter has generous portions. Main courses from grills part of menu. Lamb Special, Chicken skewers (with salad requested, instead of rice & veg, accommodated without any fuss) and Lamb Kulbasti all very good. Berry fruit salad, and apricots, provided two lighter dessert options; also tried Turkish wine (red, blend of 4 grape varieties) for first time, good value.

Good menu choices, excellent food, friendly and accommodating staff. The outside terrace was appealing but spoilt by a very vocal and loud mother broadcasting everything she said to her toddler. She was really intrusive so the three of us opted for a table inside. All in all and in spite of the noise pollution on the terrace, a lovely evening. Will go there again for sure.

I had an amazing birthday celebration at Fora Restaurant in St Johns Wood! The unique service made it extra special and they went the extra mile to make this a truly memorable birthday. I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a classy and pristine atmosphere. The staff will take extra care of you! Thank you Fora Restaurant again!

Amazing food everytime I have been there. It is a conbination of Turkish and Lebanese dishes using mostly lamb. The service is very helpful and friendly. The environment is very nice when the weather is good and you can sit outside at the yard. Inside the enviroment is ok but nothing in particular. I totally recommend the restaurant for the great food and I will visit again.

Lovely staff, who didn't read the reservation request and did not have the table ready for us. Couple of wrong orders, mainly resolved. Food was very good generally and quantities generous. Expensive for its type but not surprised given the location. Felt slightly hurried by the waiter, and not enough fresh water around for us, but these are minor quibbles. Overall a very nice lunch out for a diverse bunch of ages and tastes.

Our family had an amasing experience. Excellent food, beautiful environment, clean and inviting, most efficient and caring personnel. The music was delightful yet low enough so that we were able to chat comfortably. A place to go back to. Thanks. Ana Donaldson
