Reasonably priced simple Turkish dishes including some vegetarian options. Staff are attentive and some are Turkish too. The decor is great. It's a small cosy cheerful restaurant suitable for casual dining.

Ordered the mixed grill meze but the meat arrived as we were ready to leave such was the waiting time for the grilled meat. The other non meat dishes were tiny in portion size, a few teaspoons in quantity, laid thinly flat to give the impression of something substantial. Not enough for 1 let alone 2 diners. The olives to... More

I reviewed this restaurant in 2013, and remarked then on the attempt by the staff to encourage an extra payment of around 25% "in view of the service you have received". I thought I would return to see how things had changed. Our party of four had an excellent meal, with a good atmosphere, and the service was indeed second... More

Having read positive reviews prior, we decided to try the restaurant as I lived in Turkey and loved the cuisine. Unfortunately neither the service, nor the dishes were anywhere close by what was expected. Starting with a massive bummer...they DON'T have turkish tea?!?!?! Possibly one of the strongest element of their culture. Then it took 2 waiters to take the... More

This is what you should order, mix mazza, Skander Kebab, and meat pastry. One of the best food in London, I always visit this restaurant whenever I go to London. The food is so delicious. they serve flat bread right from the oven along with the starter. Although the place is crowded, it still cozy and well decorated. The cost... More

Went for dinner & really enjoyed both the food & the ambience. Had the mixed kebab & it was wonderful. Staff really friendly too. Would highly recommend it (& it's reasonably priced for central London)

We tried this place as first of all because my husband lived in Turkey for a while, and we love these type of kitchen. Second of all it does say on google it is a reasonable priced place. Well a main dish with chicken starts at £14.... and think of a regular portion, nothing extra. They don't have turkish tea,... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and sadly it has really gone down hill. I had the james street special, the lamb was really chewy. Servers were grumpy and really not welcoming. I mentioned to the server about the lamb and he took the service charge off of the bill but still charged £16 for the meal... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
