Parking is a problem. However. Food was delicious and fresh. We had chicken kebab and chicken kluck. We didnt order starters, but still we couldnt finish the main, the portions are definitely worth the price. staff was extra friendly. Definitely will be visiting again if we are in Chester.

A far cry from your standard post night out kebab house! We made reservations for 20.30. We arrived half an hour early and were pleasantly greeted and showed to a table. The atmosphere was relaxed and the place very cleanly. The staff were lovely with one waiter /server in particular providing entertaining 'banter' and sporadic conversation. We were given menus...

The staff are friendly and the food good, we had chicken cluck and iskender which were both good but at £17-50 and £16-50 was a bit expensive.

Large volumes of very tasty food other than the lamb chop with my mixed grill main which was overcooked and very dry. Service was slow and inattentive at times with us having to ask to place our order. We went during a particularly cold snap which resulted in the restaurant being blasted by cold air when the door was opened.... More

My partner and I ate here for the first time this evening. We shared a starter for two, my partner had a mixed grill, and I had the pan fried lamb. All very delicious and there was a lot of leftovers. I did feel it was a bit odd that the manager told us not to eat the bread he... More

Merry Xmas Jennifer, Hope your well & just to respond on some of your comments: 1) The waiter was only warning you guys that if you eat loads of the free bread with staters then you will have no room for the big main & no chance of getting to our fantastic desserts / ice cream :) 2) We also...

Visited here on Saturday night, what a great experience. Friendly staff, great service and amazing food! I had the kebab with lamb, chicken and kofta I actually managed to finish it off but not for the faint-hearted!! Fabulous. Finished off with Baklava and gorgeous ice cream. Perfect night out. Can't wait to go again.

Been here plenty of times, food and service are fantastic every time without fail. Spicy Turkish sausage is unbelievably nice from the starter menu and I can't look past the lamb for the main, all the meat is cooked on a chargrill and tastes lovely. Highly recommend to anyone
