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.
