    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....

    I booked this for a meal with some old friends last Thursday - hadn't been before and wasn't disappointed. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced as well for the quality. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience and the service was great. Highly recommend it all round and I'll definitely be going back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 20/9/2014
    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.

    We dined at Fora on Saturday night, the service and food were excellent. The live music and a Belly Dancer (@9pm) were a nice addition. Could have been even better if the restaurant had a few more customers. Will definitely go again when we are in that part of the London.

    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.

    I met here with an old colleague to have lunch. The food was superb and such great value for a restaurant in the heart of the city. 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

    This is the first time I've been to Fora Restaurant. It was a business lunch. The whole experience was brilliant. The restaurant is clean and neat. We were given a quiet table as requested. The service was excellent, friendly, helpful and always with a smile and the desire to fulfil our every request. The food was good and varied Turkish cuisine (I go to Istanbul on business frequently so I am judging on that standard) and very good value for money. Thinking back I cannot think of anything to niggle about.

    Business meal, service amazing, very attentive staff, food lovely apart from the Falafel which I'm afraid was really really dry. As a vegetarian I was looking forward to it as one of my favourite dishes - really let down. Other than that everyone enjoyed their meals and had a great time. There was one very loud drunken table the evening we ate there - cant be helped but it was incredibly loud and to an extent ruined the feel of the evening. There was a guitarist - very good but very loud again - drowned out our conversation.

    We went to Fora for a girls evening out. The deal was too good to pass up at 50% off. At £20 per head we had an amazing 3 course meal. Wonderful flavours and excellent portions. The waiting staff were very attentive and we could not have asked for more. The evening entertainment was belly dancing. The lady was brilliant, she did a lot to encourage people to get involved. Overall well worth the visit. I will definitely be returning.
