We turn up to find that the restaurant is SHUT DOWN - no warning from open table or the restaurant, and it also appeared to be open based on Google. Naturally, I'm not even impressed about this place anymore and will never go back. To those thinking about going, bare in mind this place might not be even open...

It should not have been open for a booking. I am using OpenTable for over a year and it was the first time I had such an experience. It should be corrected immediately.

If you're there for a show and you love this cuisine - as we do - it's a good pre-theater dinner option, but if you're just looking for something Anatolian to eat you can get better food much cheaper in less popular parts of London. Service was quick and friendly.

But £26 ish for a mixed grill is a little too much even for the area. I would recommend it but some of the smaller Plates shared are better value

We both ordered a pizza and shared a salad. We found the staff to be very accommodating, in particular with our food preferences (no cheese and additional toppings). The service was friendly and efficient and we will certainly be back again soon.

I'd give the kunafe 10 stars!!! The rest of the food was delicious too - perhaps the portions could have been a tiny bit more generous for the price, but hey - this is Leicester Square. Great restaurant - we'll be back!

Ali is the best when it comes to Turkish food. They don’t modify or alter the original recipe and this is such a comfort if you are looking for a specific, well-missed taste. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Excellent as always.

But the mezes are not value for money - tasty but small portions with very high prices. Alcoholic beverages are also priced above average. Service was a bit slow.

Mezzes were very expensive for the portion with no accompanying bread given for dips like hummous and etc. This has to be ordered seperately. No mezze platters available. A selection or set of mezzes made available on the menu or sharing platters would have been good especially for diners who are not familiar with the cuisine to try out small portions of selected mezzes. Service and ambiance was good.

Despite seeing a few bad reviews on an unnamed website, we decided to go anyway. It is conveniently close to Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square and has all the right ingrediants for a 1st class restaurant including a wait staff that is very attentive. Clean, warm, not too big the space is great for a small party or an intimate evening (although there are no booths). The menu is very good and the portions are quite satisfying. Halal, of course; it's menu covered a wide gamut of great entrees and desserts. Traditional balon bread, humus, and baklava are all very good. Fine Turkish wines (!) round out the menu with other vintners well represented. Did I mention the many types of Raki? Try them all and fly home! Not overly expensive = ($$$) not ($$$$). Eat! Be Happy here!

The staff are great. I love turkey and Turkish people. But I noted that the roses and plants next to the seating area are full of garbage from people who throw it at the plants area. Which is unpleasant.

I think the portion size should have been bigger given the price tag. However, this restaurant is based in Leicester Square, and like so many other restaurants in such a touristy kind of area, they are banking on luring in tourists with Sterling Pounds to spend, and also I can't imagine the rates they have to pay are cheap. But putting aside a lack of value for money I must stress the food is good and the location is great. I can think of a number of places in that area that charge heaven and earth but give you basic food. I'm glad we went and if I'm ever in the area I'd definitely go again. Thank you for the meal!
