    This is a simple restaurant that makes you feel like you have had a really good meal out. The service is outstanding, the food is very tasty, plenty of variety and good for kids too. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. I wouldn't recommend for romance as it can be quite noisy if there is a big party in. Great family night out.

    I would recommend Nene on a Saturday night where the belly dancers come out. Food is OK, nothing to shout about, but worth the money. It is the atmosphere that makes this restaurant. I would highly recommend for birthdays or big parties. We did wait slightly longer than usual for our food, but it was extremely busy.

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, I couldnt help But notice that there were two birthday celebrations taking place at the time over my visit, which is usually a good sign. Food was very enjoyable. The only downfall was that the waitress took a while to come over to take our drink orders But that could be down to the fact that it was quote busy when we had arrived. All in all restaurant was nice and I enjoyed The Food very much

Got a mixed meze platter each and you have 4 mains to choose from,all were delicious and really hearty tastey food! Couldnt manage a dessert we were so full. The restaurant is very smart and would suit all occassions. Definitely recommend & will be back again very soon!

    We ate at this restaurant with friends for the first time on saturday evening. It was really busy not a spare table in sight which is a good sign. The staff were friendly and helpful even though they were obviously very busy. The food was absolutely delicious. Very good value for money, the food tasted fresh and homemade and we all enjoyed our choices. We will definitely be returning here in the very near future.

    I booked this restaurant for 8 people for my sisters Hen Party on Saturday. The restaurant was busy, a good sign! The food did not disappoint, and was washed down with equally delicious cocktails and wine! The staff were very friendly, the service was excellent and they had a belly dancer for entertainment - to the horror of the Hen when she got her up dance along. It was all good fun though! Looking forward to eating here again! Would recommend!

    Dined on 2/8/2013
    Three of us had dinner at this restaurant on Friday evening and it was lovely as the whole of the front of the restaurant was opened up and the we could all enjoy the warm weather. There is a really good choice of items on the menu and the service is very good. The waiter was very witty and funny which really made a difference, and made it fun. A waiter with a personality seems quite rare these days! The food was nice but could have had a bit more flavour in a couple of the dishes we chose which is why I've only graded a 'good' for the food. Good location, good for people watching, great waiter service - would recommend you give it a try.

    We went to Nene on Saturday night as my parents had come to stay from the West Country. From the minute we walked in, we knew we were going to have a good evening. There was a lovely atmosphere and although it was busy we weren't cramped and the service was great. We all had the set mezze meal for £13.95 a head, perfect for sharing and paired that with a couple of lovely bottles of Turkish red. The highlight of the evening was the belly dancer, who even managed to get my Dad up dancing in the aisles. A great evening and certainly one for my parents to talk about for weeks to come!

    We booked.Nene's for a birthday treat and we were nor disappointed. The food was first class as was the service. We especially enjoyed the lamb casserole and the lovely choice of meze for our starters. And a restaurant which can offer an outstanding Merlot as a house red must be a bit special. Highly recommended by us both.

    When I vistied Cappadoccia in January on a group booking, the most disappoiing aspect of trip was the lack of real Turkish cuisine, which I have enjoyed previously in Turkety. Nene gave me back that wonderful taste of spices and sauces in Turkish cooking, Would highly recommmend this restaurant - it was my first and not my last visit here.

    Really good food at a good price - dinner menu allowed us to sample a good range of food and we enjoyed all of it. I would just say that while the wine doesn't seem too bad value, when you think you're ordering a French Pinot Noir but end up with a young Chilean one, I'm not sure the value is quite so good! Service very friendly - even when you end up being the last customers in the place! Highly recommended.

    The food was fantastic, very fresh and well cooked. I would especially recommend the hot meze starter to share. Atmosphere was good too, with belly dancing livening things up. Only criticism would be using lime cordial in the margaritas - very obvious and in my opinion, unnecessary

    First time visiting this restaurant - had been recommended by a friend. Mixed hot meze as a starter was gorgeous, hot and flavoursome. Main meal of mixed grill and rice suited husband as small amount of peppers and onions was included! I ate the salmon and spinach - again a superb meal but would have loved a bit more spinach - fresh tomato sauce was very filling. Sweets were fantastic - hot baklava and a cheesecake both with a vanilla ice cream which tasted home made. San Miguel was best my husband had tasted outside Spain. Wine was a reasonable price. Had a table at 7pm and by 8.30pm the restaurant was full. Good attentive waiting staff.

    The hot meze platter starter provided a good selection and if I went again I would add one of the cold dips to add a touch more moisture. I opted for a vegetarian main course (Turlu) which was bursting with flavour and my dining partner enjoyed the Iskender mixed grill. Portions aren't huge but I see that as a positive, as other similar restaurants can go overboard on the starters and leave no room to enjoy a main course. We will definitely be back.

    The above says it all. I did, however, make a mistake on the reservation and they were more than happy to add an extra two guests at the very last second with minimum fuss and stress. Been twice in the last two months and will be going again. Last time I went was mid week, this time the weekend. The service was not bad at the weekend but significantly better during the week when they were less busy. I found them clearing plates before all the party had finished a bit frustrating but it is only a small gripe.

The food is excellent and good value for money. I find the staff really friendly and attentive without being overbearing. I am back this weekend for a birthday meal with friends and already looking forward to it!

    We were a family of 6 celebrating my partners birthday. There were 2 small children in our group which I felt were very well accommodated. Two members of the group are lacto/dairy intolerant and need to eat food which is wholesome and prepared in a healthy way. We were not disappointed with the choices on the menu and all members of the group enjoyed their meal and the variety. We would definitely go back.

    Very pleasant manager greeted and seated us and was attentive but not pushy. £20 three course option is really good value (back of menu). Mixed starters were very tasty served with ample bread. Chicken kebabs were very generous and more than we could eat (after the starters), Baclava for desert was very nice and 3 peices each was a generous serving. The house red wine was a bit of a dissapointment as it was thin and weak. Better to spend an extra few pounds for a much better quality as the food is reasonable. Free coffee as part of the £20 deal made this a very nice and reasonable night out in pleasant surroundings with good service. I will go back.

    Chose this restaurant as a change to the Italians that seem so popular in Beckenham. The menu was diverse with loads of options for every taste and wasn't disappointed. The only negative for me was that the restaurant was noisy - we had a table in the middle of the restaurant and found it difficult to hear each other so request a table away from big parties.
