I'd found this restaurant via trip advisor as I love Mediterranean/Greek/Turkish type food. We had a table booked for 7 but ended up getting there about 6.40pm, we thought we'd have to wait, and would be happy to do so until 7pm. They took us to a table straight away with no waiting at all. Service as very quick, we'd ordered 3 starters and by the time the mains arrived, we'd hadn't quite finished our starters so it was nice to not wait for the food to arrive as we were both starving! Food was delicious & the people were really friendly. Definitely recommend going!

The free after meal tea and baklava was a very nice touch.
