we like Turkish restaurants but stick mainly to vegetarian style dishes. This place specialises in meat; the other things we prefer were very poor by comparison with other Turkish places we have eaten in. The best things were the hummus, youghurt & bread which were freebies! No Turkish wines were offered except by the bottle, nothing by the glass, half bottle etc, In fact the only thing on offer except by the bottle was an Italian, one in each of the 3 usual colours. It was cheap & the worst Italian I have tasted for a very long time (the boss said people wouldn't pay more than £3.50 a glass !)
Warm welcome and friendly service. Plenty of choice of food on the menu and very good portions. Nice and buzzy atmosphere. Just a bit too quick taking the orders as they seem to rush everything in order to get the table vacated.
The food at Melissas is reliably good! The restaurant is always noisy and packed but it’s all about the food!! We never hesitate to recommend.
The service was great. The food was amazing. Nothing bad to say. We will be back! I recommend getting the lamb shish or lamb cop with rice!
Excellent food, in addition the service was good. Portion sizes are good, we ordered a platter and had plenty of food for 2 people. In fact we had some packed to take.
Good service but floor was a bit greasy. The quality of the meat was excellent. It was very noisy but that was due to the number if younger children present. Good value for money
Food was very slow to come out, was told 30 mins for sea bass, food actually took 45/50mins as we didn’t have starters. Small salad to be shared between 3 people - was tasty but not outstanding. Probably won’t return
The lamb shish was excellent but the waitresses didnt understand wanting a larger starter as a main meal. The sea bass fillet was very bony. Because the staff realised we weren't happy with our order they didn't charge us for one dessert and coffees.
Table was ready for us and excellent service was received. Food served quickly , good size portion and full of flavour. Friendly service all round
Nice clean friendly place. Didn’t have an allergy menu. Tried to explain about a few allergies with certain salads but still got the food with what we asked not to be on the there!
