This must be one of the best restaurants in London. Amazing food, excellent service and cool ambiance. All the dishes were innovative and super delicious. We'll be back soon.

We had a fantastic meal and service to match! The menu has a Turkish influence, but is more modern and upscale than a traditional Turkish restaurant. The decor is very chic, white washed old brick and nice quiet lighting. We started with a cocktail; I had a gin and house made tonic served over solid ice blocks and my wife had the Yeni, a delicious Prosecco vodka strawberry concoction. My wife and I had three amazing appetizers and split a main course of lamb, plus we had dessert, so we enjoyed a full array of tastes. Our server Ricardo was excellent and helped with descriptions of each item. I'm a foodie and seldom do I have a meal where the food, service, drinks/wine, and ambiance come together so well, and without pretentiousness. And another positive: tables are not arranged on top each other, so you are not bothered by other tables too close to you. Enjoy!!

Outstanding. My Turkish wife and I (a Brit) booked for our wedding anniversary. Not because it’s particularly fancy. But because the food is amazing. A fresh modern take on Turkish cuisine that is as far away from the kebab you’re used to as Istanbul (where they slaps have branches) is from beak st. Honestly the most surprising, delicious and enjoyable meal we’ve had in years. And the staff are amazing, knowledgeable and attentive. All I can set is book it. It will be amazing.

Food was imaginative and very tasty. Flavors were intense but not overwhelming
A modern interpretation of classical Mediterranean cuisine created a pleasant dining experience

It is good to find modern Turkish in a more sophisticated setting in London. The decor was sleek and not over the top with Turkish themes. The food was tasty, although not amazing for the price. The service was excellent.

I went with 4 friends and we ordered all the small dishes, all were delicious particular stand outs were the tartare, scallops, apple and mange tout salad and the desserts were especially good. Really like the way dishes come out one by one or in little clusters, some might find the service a little slow but everything was worth the wait. Ordering the smaller plates and plenty of bread made the meal very affordable. If its just two of you a couple of small plates and share a main, Otherwise the bill can get very big very quick but the dishes are immaculate. The Chef really knows what he is doing and its the little touches like the amuse bouche little dumpling you get at the beginning that give you a sense that this is food from Istanbul served with aplomb. I would go definitely go back.

Absolutely delicious. Every dish was a great taste, and given you are mainly sharing dishes, it was great that they all went well together and stood alone on their individual flavours.

This was our second visit to this restaurant after their opening. We enjoyed it very much again. Their new dishes like sausage and bass are worth to try. Their service has improved a lot and now they have a better wine list. Looking forward to visiting them again.

I’d been looking forward to coming here for a while and it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious - we were recommended the prawn in vine leaves and they were definitely the best thing on the menu. Which says a lot as all the food was delicious, and the cocktails too. Great service and decor.

This new Soho restaurant is really cool. High quality food and vibrant atmosphere. We had the sharing portions and all were outstanding. Sausage, kofta tartar and pan fried feta were stunningly tasty. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Wine list is quite original. We had the a bottle of a nice Turkish white and a Bulgarian red. I must say that this dinner was one the best we had recently. We’ll soon be back.

Food was incredible! We loved every dish we had. We were shown to a table upstairs when we arrived which I felt disappointed about as we had booked but it was actually very nice up there too. Staff are super friendly and attentive and talked us through the wine list and menu. If anything they were perhaps a bit too eager to keep topping up our wine, we laughed as we would barely have a sip and another member of staff would be back topping it up again, at one point 3 times within the space of 5mins! Overall it wasn't the cheapest, we were 3 ppl and it came to £80 each, but that was with two bottles of wine. Nonetheless I will definitely be back and would recommend it.

This is a first class restaurant with amazing food and service. Frankly, we were not expecting such an outstanding feast. We shared everything that came in smaller dishes with surprising tastes. We had lamb and beef ribs as main which were incredibly delicious. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Ambience is stylish and relaxing. We will be back for sure.
