I was so excited to visit this restaurant as it is highly rated by TripAdvisor. I love Greek and Turkish food and have eaten at many wonderful restaurants in Greece and Turkey as well as Greek and Turkish restaurants in London and New York. Unfortunately this was such a disappointment mostly because I expected so much based on its rating.... More

My wife & I chose this restaurant for our first meal in Auckland from the great Trip Advisor reviews and also because it was just over the road from the Sky City Hotel, where we were staying. We were not disappointed! We arrived early about 6.30pm as we were still trying to adjust to the local time, but there were... More

We all got different dishes, can't remember them all but I know the Falafels were great, but my Moussaka was a bit tasteless. The other two expressed satisfaction with their dishes. Have eaten there before, and would definitely go again. The belly... More

As the title says 'taste of Turkish Apple Tea' it was something new I've tried and found it excellent. Ordered a Meze plates which was really great. Friendly staff and charming atmosphere with a combination of Arabic music and Belly Dance. I'd recommend the place for friends hangout and family visit as well. Looking forward to taste some more food... More

After we visited the Sky Tower, we crossed the street and had dinner at Cafe Midnight Express because it had a high rating on TripAdvisor. The moussaka was good. For dessert we had baklava with ice cream because kunefe was not on their menu. Our table seemed small and not very private. Service was polite, and the food arrived in... More
