    I booked Fora as a last minute dinner to catch up with the friend and it was the perfect meal! My friend is gluten intolerant and the staff did all they could to provide alternative dishes and ensure she knew which dishes on our table were not appropriate for her. We went on a Thursday when they had a man playing acoustic guitar who was really good and set such a great atmosphere. The quality of the food was great and really good value for money. Would recommend this restaurant and their set menu offer!

    Went there last minute & went for the set menu. Good value for money, infact a bargain! perfect portions. Happily content with starter and main. We opted for the rice pudding as additional for dessert but I personally didn't like as left a bitter after taste. overall value for money with the half price set menu

    Had dinner here with my wife and work colleagues and was just ideal. Quality food for a good price. We didn't leave hungry. Ambiance is very nice and there was a live guitar player throughout the night. The only negative was that it took quite a bit for the food to arrive on this busy Friday evening.

    Fora Restaurant - I booked this for a team dinner on Tuesday. I requested we be seated away from the main dining area as we were a table of 12. They obliged and seated us just in from of the bar which was a nice location. There was someone playing a guitar and he was fantastic. The overall ambience and service was great. Everybody loved the food and venue. Would highly recommend

    I've been here a few times and the staff here have never failed to deliver the best service! The food is authentic and I always enjoyed every dish I order. The mezes are a prefect size to share and the meat dishes are also highly recommended. Would suggest to come early as there is a huge lunch time rush and would definitely try the fresh mint tea!

    Booked this for an post work jolly and to celebrate some team birthdays. The staff were lovely, the food was plentiful and great value on the set menus. It wasn't very busy but we had booked early on a Wednesday night so perfect for us. They even gave the birthday people a free shot! I would definitely come back for a team outing.

    Unbeatable value 50% off set menu price to £17.50 per person including glass of bubbly each. For a set menu the selection is well chosen, with hot and cold starters then choice of main meal. Really tasty food and a generous size. The staff here are so friendly in a natural way - very hospitable and you feel at home. Granted this place is packed with City Business types at lunchtime so may be a totally different experience, but mid week evening is lovely and they give you there full attention. Even offered complimentary liquors when one of my party, assisted a worker who dropped some cutlery in picking them up - gesture did not go unnoticed by the Manager. A delightful touch and I will be definitely coming again.

    Booked last minute to take my folks. The food was, as previous visit was really good, hearty and plentiful. The downside what I found annoying was that the belly dancer kept going round tables to get people to dance. No thanks. You dance I eat....

The restaurant itself has a nice ambience and the service was great. Highly recommend it all round and I'll definitely be going back.

    I did the 50% off belly dancing evening. It was slightly misleading as I was expecting to pay £10 per person, but £20 is the 50% off. However there was nowhere else on the menu that suggested a set meal was £40. It would be much better value to choose one of the other set menus which are cheaper. The belly dancing only lasted 15 minutes which was disappointing, especially as the dancer was amazing!! The staff were accommodating although we always had to call out to them which doesn't bother me, but bothers other people. Overall I would recommend this place for a quiet and relaxing evening!

    We went for 1st time here with our two children. The food is very nice, the quality is good. The place is quiet thus it is therefore better for family and group meals. The service is good on the whole and the staff are helpful. The portions are generous. Overall, its a wonderful and quiet place to go with family, friends or business meals. The time was very enjoyable. We will come back soon.

    A very nice atmosphere, attentive waiting staff. Food is good value - the lamb shank is nicely done, moist yet fall-off-the-bone good. The mixed meza starter recommended by the server was a very good introduction to a variety of turkish delicacies that we wouldn't have tried otherwise.

    I went with a friend for a mid-week dinner. It was really quiet which was a bit of a shame. However, the Speilberg lookalike guitar player added a lovely atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and informative. The food was great value and the main course with the meat and matchstick potatoes was really, really delicious. A great little place, would definitely return.

    First time there, absolutely brilliant food and exceptionally quick service, especially knowing that most of their lunch time partons are City workers! Set menu came with a vast amount of small plates i.e starters and mains / hot and cold. More than enough for two to share. Amazing breads. Really friendly and engaging staff. Will definitely be going there again and my former favorite type of this type of food, Haz..... I don't think I'll be visiting as a first choice anymore. Only slight gripe is when full you are quite close to the table next to you so not very private.

The veggie options were great, as were the meat options for my old colleague. The wine was reasonably priced too. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for lunch in the City
