    I have been here a few times now. The first few times there was live music and interaction between the staff and tables. Now it’s the same as other restaurants, food and flat beers

    Great place to eat. Me and the partner been a few times now and enjoyed 3 courses every time. Do feel the price is a little expensive but sometimes you got to spend a bit to enjoy it so I’m not complaining.

    Delicious food, great atmosphere, attentive staff but got a little slow towards the end but that’s when it’s time to relax anyway.

    The food is delicious here no doubt about that. We were served food fine but the drinks were a bit slow. BUT they try to add on 12.5% service charge without telling you. I find this extortionate. So for 4 of us the charge was £25. Since when did deciding what tip to leave become a charge that you don’t get to chose. The food and drink is already expensive. It should be down to the customer to decide what tip to leave and I did just that.

    The chunks of lamb were quite tough and normally very tender. Even though the staff were nice and polite, I felt uncomfortable regarding some staff having very long nails which is very unhygienic with food, also they made it so awkward servicing and collecting plates, this should not be allowed.

    Honestly the worse experience ever for a 21st birthday celebration !! Wrong wine served (so changed)main served before starter,then main warmed up & re served with wrong items,put on hot plates but food cold & chewy(left under hot plates) We paid for drinks & starters & left!!! Such a shame as been previously & was nice.They did remove mains from bill & gave my daughter a complimentary drink but damage had been done !!!!!

    Great food, but slow service and poor portion size made it less value for money. Maybe consider their takeaway service, but not somewhere we would go back to. Oh house beer was nice

    The food was really nice and one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten in but the only let down was the service. We had to chase the drinks a few times and the food had to be chased aswell and it wasn’t even fully booked. But despite this the food is well worth the wait and we will be back.

    Business meeting for 2 people, early evening. It was busy but not overly busy. Staff very attentive and helpful. Food was excellent, portions are generous. A bit expensive but understandably the cost of everything is going up

    But slow to acknowledge us (no-one at the concierge station when we entered the restaurant), but nicely appointed, prompt and friendly service. Food was good, healthy and the restaurant was busy enough to provide a nice atmosphere. Would recommend for a friends night out or a date with the other half.

    Overall far too expensive! Food was nice but staff don’t know the menu well enough. EVERYTHING and I mean everything is charged as an extra! Will not be returning! I challenged all the extras on our bill and got absolutely no response or offer to remove any. I know far nicer Turkish restaurants with staff who actually know what they are doing. Very disappointing.

    The food was really very nice. The service felt very rushed unfortunately, they seemed in a hurry to get us fed and out which was a shame as we were not in a hurry at all! They even took my plate away while my father was still eating which I do consider rather rude, I wouldn’t even do that at home! They were then in a hurry to take our order for dessert, we prefer a much more relaxed atmosphere and attitude when I’m out to eat and I can understand when it’s a busy period that they need to rush but it wasn’t busy at all.

    Service was good a few new trainee waitresses. Looks like the restaurant as addressed bad reviews on service and has employed extra staff. Food was cooked and presented in a timely manner. We went for a platter for 2 which was delicious and sizable and a very nice Chocolate pudding

    Food order taken incorrectly resulting in wrong food being brought out. Then waited for an hour for correct food order … a side we’d ordered to come with the main was continually being offered to us as it was waiting under a hot plate. We requested fresh to be made to come with the main as we didn’t want the original which had been sat for an hour under hot plate. Main meal sharing platter was delicious! Bill came with extra items we hadn’t ordered added!!!! So whilst the food was lovely, service shocking!
