Food was amazing, nice and quite and felt safe in COVID conditions, only down side it was very cold so wear a jumper if you get chilly.

Restuarant was quiet, but food was great. Large and delicous portions, together with excellent service. Will definitely visit again!

Overpriced and underwhelming. My portion was tiny, and when the menus says “comes with a side salad”, that’s one salad per table, not per meal.

What a great little find. It's just off the main high street and we parked by it. It looked really nice so we called in. What a fantastic meal. Service was great too.

We will be coming back.

Very clean and good effort with social distancing and sanitizing. Food was good.. The chicken shish was lovely, but the lamb a bit too fatty.
Portions were very generous.
Its a 90 minute time slot, which is fine, but they seemed to be rushing us, the waitress started taking our starters away and stood watching while my friend finnished eating her starter, which was very uncomfortable. they forgot to bring us some chilli sauce with our main, and also got some of our order wrong. They did not offer desert, and after 2 hours they told us our time was up, and when i explained we were still just waiting for the bill, they had completely forgotten about it, and assumed we were just sitting there for fun.
I told them we had not been offered dessert and the waiter stated "its on the main menu, but weve run out"
The bill was very good value for money. Which made up for the service.

Although I have marked them down, I fear it was the fault of OpenTable booking system primarily - for a restaurant with 10/11 tables we ALL arrived within half an hour of each other!! The service was not great but hardly surprising as it was so busy. The second issues was that it was on an Eat Out to Help Out evening, again I fear this created a less than perfect delivery of their menu. It was a shame & I’ll try it again another time

Delicious authentic Turkish food, reasonably priced, drinks can be expensive and it does feel a bit like your in a cafe, but we will definitely be going back.

First visit, using the 'Eat out to help out' scheme. Food fine, service very polite with the added benefit that one of the staff speaks very good Russian (my wife is Russian), but service was honestly a bit slow and needed reminding more than once. Apart from that an enjoyable experience.

Booked a table for two but turned up to find no free tables at all. Was offered to sit on the same table as a family of 5 which would not have been in keeping with social distancing. When I asked what the point was of booking the guy just shrugged. Clearly just trying to cram in as many covers as possible. Really disappointed as we wanted to support a local restaurant, but in the current circumstances it did not feel safe. We’ll go elsewhere to places that can accommodate their bookings and not shrug when a customer is upset at the service. Don’t accept bookings if you don’t have the space

Food was fantastic, really enjoyed everything we had.

Service was a little bit disorganised but I would add the restaurant was packed on a Monday night due to gov scheme.

There was a no air con on a roasting hot day which made it a bit tough. There were units on the wall but didn’t seem to be working.

Excellent food large portions great service very relaxing mood will be using again. We used the government meal £10 off pp but would have happily paid full Amount at £25 per head. The whole meal was fantastic fresh and hot as said will be our restaurant of choice from now on.

I know that we are slowly coming out of ‘lockdown’, but the restaurant has taken great steps to make customers feel safe.
As always the food was great and the service attentive without being intrusive.
Will we go again? Of course - and hope that others will also venture out.

Would absolutely recommend!!
They have done an excellent job with putting in safety measures for COVID-19. Partitions (clear) between tables, hand sanitiser on the tables, all staff with masks and gloves, and they check your temperature before allowing you in. Found this really good!
The food was absolutely delicious, really was great! Full of flavour and plenty of it! I have tried many different couscous and never liked it, but I tried it here and it was amazing!
All staff were always smiling and friendly towards myself and daughter!
Couldn’t really ask more! Thank you for an great evening!

This restaurant tries to copycat well established local Turkish businesses without really meeting the expectation.

Food was absolutely average, the meat in my mixed kebab was overcooked and dry, salads ingredients of a very low quality, and portions very poor (you can get much much more for same price from other places).

Service on the other end was outstanding, bill very cheap and several things on the house (unfortunately you go to a restaurant to eat).

Personally I'd have rather preferred to pay more for better food and quality.

A side note: a bit of clarity about the ownership of the place, and the relation with the old Cappadocia, which was not different in terms of feedback from this one, would be highly appreciated for transparency (not enough to say under new management when the inside and the outside and people are the same).
