Got there early to avoid the embarrising Bally Dancer. It was busy. The banquet was average for its price. Not sure I will go back. Food amounts was less than last year (we go there yearly). Went naway hungry so went elsewhere for coffee and desert

Our experience was outstanding. Gorgeous waitress who didn't stop smiling. Waiter Mamoon so friendly and accommodating. All food fresh and delicious and we even got a free pizza! Fantastic value for money. Will definitely go back, next time on a weekend to catch the entertainment.

We ordered banquet for 4. Every thing was bought for two person. We have been in many places and ordered banquet. Never got served the way we got at your place. The food that we paid $190 we would have got better variety of food. Nothing special about the food. Bread and dips and one piece each of meat. And few spoons of rice very pathetic. Even the dessert was shocked for 4 people 1 each . You should improve the quantity if you need people to come over. The serve that was provided is a rip off . I will not recommended any one or come there at all. We have been to so many places and this was one place we were shocked with the food.

Second visit and everything was fantastic. Dips and bread very good, meat perfectly cooked and veggies very nice indeed
Won't tell you our favourite dish, but will tell you it is sublime

We had dinner here last Saturday.
The food was great but the service was so poor. We ordered a drink and waited 20 minutes for it to be served to us. For our entry, they gave us different types of dips, but waited 5 minutes for the bread. Desert took another 30 minutes to be delivered and apparently they ran out of Turkish delight, so they gave us baklava.
When we received our bill, it was doubled. Place is too noisy.

Great tasting Turkish food at an affordable price. Lovely service as well. The food arrived within minutes after we ordered. I would recommend that you go with an empty stomach and try out their "Acili Peynirli Pide" (entree), "Doner & Sauce" (main) and "Nutella Pide" (dessert).

The only complaint is the loud noise from the band that night (Friday). Very difficult to hold a conversation so wouldn't recommend for a date but great to go with your mates for a night out.

We had a lovely waiter who tried hard to please and was thoughtful. A few more vegan options would be good too. We were all pleased with our tasty food.

We've had dinner at Pinabasi several times, with our daughter, her partner, her one-year-old daughter. We eat early. The staff have been very welcoming of us, of children. The food is excellent, authentic, healthy, there are good vegetarian options. Meals are very reasonably priced.
