This was our first visit to the restaurant. We found the food was of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. Great menu selection. Staff were friendly and very professional. Would absolutely recommend going here.
Excellent waiter made us feel very special food. Delicious food. Great value. We ate so much that I left a dress size bigger than when I went in.
Little gem in Notting Hill: amazingly tasty food and big portions. Turkish Food at its best. I could eat there every weekend! Good selection, however mainly meat dishes, but there are also very delicious vegetarian options.
