Me and mate went there for a catch-up dinner and had a great meal, Bora is a great host and the food is brilliant.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
My mate has booked to take his wife there at the weekend and he's a fussy...bigger.More
We have been doing the rounds of the top Turkish restaurants in Essex this year rather than the usual Chinese and Indian.
I I have to say this experience confirms to us Turkish may well be our favourite cuisine now- and favourite restaurants to visit...these days. The staff are always so inviting and knowledgable about the food you get a real feeling it is a passion and not a business you have visited.
The setting is a relatively small restaurant with a warm homely feel. The staff are extremely inviting and attentive. We sat near the kitchen which is perfect for me as i enjoy watching the chef's cook, and the smoke bellowing from the coals. Watching the cook is like clock work..
Had the specials to start and not disappointed, lots of flavour and sets you up eager for the mains. Watching the food come out of the kitchen really wets your appetite also to see what comes next.
The mains came on a bed of bulgur and baldo rice, usually the rice takes a back seat for me but this rice has so much flavour I could genuinely eat a bowl on it's own. I dont understand how they made it sing as it did.
We didnt have room for a desert but I ordered one anyway, TRILICE... I have a new favourite desert!! So good i wanted my kids to try it and took it home, unfortunately the kids liked it so much we didnt get another bite.. Sensationally lite and flavourful i will now be looking for the best Trilice each time we go out..
We left the restaurant wanting to taste everything on the menu. We will definitely visit again, try the fish dishes, and leave space for Trilice..More
This is the third time we have eaten at this lovely authentic Turkish restaurant. It is as delightful as the first time we came and the food seems even better third time round. The lamb was like eating tender butter! Just amazing.
I’ve lived in Hockley for 20 years and this is definitely the best place here! My partner and I are vegetarian and there was a lot of great options - the food was all amazing and very well priced.
My sister is vegan and she...ate well too (lots of vegan starters and 1 vegan main) - adding another vegan main option would be very appreciated.
Service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere inside was fab.
Sad we were so full that we couldn’t manage any of the delicious sounding desserts!
We will definitely be back again - a much needed little gem in Hockley villageMore
