Very pleasant meal! We had grilled chicken. It is so well flavored from inside to outside and we enjoyed it very much. Also enjoyed free mezes, bread and a special dessert. Extremely impressive. Definitely recommend it.
Delicious food! Good service and a very friendly atmosphere. No wine, but we bought a bottle across the road, which was then served to us during the meal, so that wasn't a problem. We'll definitely return!
The food was really good and the service was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is a little small and not really cozy (e.g. door was left open at all times and lots of Deliveroo drivers coming in). Great for a quick simple dinner
