I've eaten here a lot and on every occasion the food is always fantastic. Nice selection of wines and the baklava is a tasty sweet to end the meal. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful too.

My friend and I chose Koza as we enjoy Turkish food and it was close to where we were staying. And we were not disappointed with the food. For a set price of £12.90, it's possible to choose one of each from a range of entrees and mains. We chose a plate of four meze and lightly fried squid for... More

Love this place, the food just keeps getting better and better. The cold meze starters are really good but I love the falafel, the presentation is really good and portion sizes are great, but more importantly the food tastes great. Would recommend the Adana kebab or the mixed kebab! also tried the chicken kebab and that is great too and... More

Staff here were very friendly on our arrival and it was not very busy for a Friday night. The cold meze starter was good although I was a little surprised that the bread to have with this is charged for. We had to wait quite a long time for the stuffed squid and baby octopus hot starters. When they came,... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat whilst visiting the Imperial War Museum and luckily came across this place. The lunch set menu is very reasonably priced (£7.90 for two courses) and extremely tasty. The service was very good, the restaurant quiet and the bread and olive oil given at the start was a nice touch. We will definitely be... More

I am a coeliac who attempted to purchase a take away from this awful establishment. I explained the implications of this on the telephone and ordered what I was informed was a gluten free meal. When I arrived to collect it, I was informed by another member of staff that part of my meal did in fact contain gluten. This... More
