    The ambience is excellent, but the service was patchy. The food was average. I paid a deposit that the restaurant refused to deduct from the account, but was refunded a few days later. Open Table gave me no assistance. I will book directly with restaurants in future.

    Went for a Hens. I counted the number of people attending wrong but the staff on were really flexible and it was squashy but not a problem. Had the $75 banquet. Food was delicious, especially the date butter and stuff calamari. The only fault was the dessert, too small, could have been served with something else. Also surprised not Turkish delight was served. The place itself is really cute and good ambiance. Took quite a while for the food to come out, but once the first course was served the rest followed close behind. Would highly recommend, much better than your average Turkish Restaurant.

    When we arrived there was some mix up with our table- we sat where we were directed but then we were told to move. We were seated in a walk way close to the door so it wasn’t quite what we expected. However the food was fabulous and the service and wine (Turkish) were very good. We will definitely return!!

    The food was very very small in quantity and definitely not enough for what we paid. The waiters did not inquire at all if we were satisfied or if we needed another drink or if we wanted dessert. At the end of the dinner we were promptly brought the bill with no notice. Unfortunately I will never be dining there again.

    Over priced for the food you get served. Waited too long between meals coming out. Dessert wasn’t fresh. Onion was overpowering and left a very bitter taste. Food didn’t have very good flavour, only good thing was the fresh bread.

    I was there for a Sunday lunch with friends; we had the selection of meze and a couple of vegetarian mains - all delicious. I’ve eaten there before and enjoyed the meat dishes as well. Service was friendly and attentive. I’m looking forward to eating there again soon.

    Amazing food and they serve a lot. Ordered the 4 course banquet for 6 people and we had enough left over that we will have a 2nd night. Service was good. Wine list is OK with a lot of Turkish wine and only 1 or 2 Australian wines. Availability is low. Many items in the wine list were not available. Possibly a supply chain issue?
