We've been here twice now. The food is fantastic - both meat and vegetarian options. Generous portions and extremely tasty. The Baklava was amazing. Staff are superb - friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended.

Thought we would try somewhere new prior to our holiday in Turkey. Glad we did lovely food. Staff attentive but not intrusive and a nice ambiance. Had mousakka and a chicken dish and 2 delicious starters. Will definitely go back here.
