Time Out Says

With its name lit up in bright red lights under the cover of illuminated palm trees, this Turkish restaurant is on a mission to become a must-visit. Once in, you’re greeted by a beautiful outdoor oasis full of greenery on the walls that makes for a great place to dine.

The traditional starter of kibbeh – served in large torpedo-shaped portions – launches the evening in fine style. The crunchy coating pairs nicely with the soft and tender minced meat and leaves us hungry for an extra serving.

The kebab is the star of the show here, though. It comes in many shapes and sizes and we go for the signature Iskender kebab, a mountain of delicious lamb doner meat lying on a bed of fried pitta bread cubes with a refreshing dollop of yoghurt on the side. It’s the more clean-cut cousin of your late-night takeaway of choice and adds a touch of tasty class to a trusty old favourite.

The restaurant is buzzing with atmosphere and also has a charming, family-friendly feel about it, helped along by a selection of dedicated dishes for kids.

If those neon lights don’t initially entice you in, know that the helpful staff, relaxed setting and excellent-value food make a visit well worth it.

The Bottom Line
A Turkish treat full of fun and flavour.
