The food here is so delicious - very fresh, authentic and generous portion size. The great reviews are all correct! We had takeaways of lamb on rice and the service was outstanding too - very efficient. We ordered a side of fries for our 5...year old too and they were also delicious. Will be back!More

This is our fave take out ever. Almost eat this weekly. 😘 Would like to see maybe re usable containers, because I’d totally buy one, feeling a little bad using the non recyclable ones so frequently.

After a long day of travelling we walked from our b&b to this restaurant to get some Turkish fast food. The restaurant itself is very simple, service is friendly and the food is really good. There are lots of people working in the (open) kitchen...to ensure eveyone has their food in time. Lots of people walk in to get their take away meals. We had the Doner Kebab with salad, fries, hummus, cabbage, tabouleh and various sauces. You can take your drink from the cooler.More

The decor and sittings were Turkish, and comfortable. We were given a big corner table. There was a big menu, and took us a while to decide what we wanted. We shared the pizzas, which were delicious. Then came our individual dishes, which were BIG...even though we ordered small/regular portions. Anyway, the food was plentiful, nice and cheap. A very good place to even just have a pizza to share as a snack.More
