It had been many years since we'd eaten at the Nargile and it was a good meeting point for family driving up to Aberdeen. The service was good and the food pretty tasty.

Having been here numerous times, I took a party of six for lunch having raved about the food. The food was superb (we had a Meze Lunch) with something for everyone - even the Gluten Free amongst us were catered for. friendly and attentive service. Absolutely excellent! How can you live in or visit Aberdeen without going to this restaurant....... More

We were a family of five with one being Gluten Free (who was extremely well catered for). From the moment we arrived we were very well looked after by the staff. The food and drinks came at sensible intervals and the quality and choice was excellent. This restaurant is always busy so a great ambiance comes as standard. The kebabs... More

We have eaten here on four previous occasions and have never been disappointed. Our trip on Thursday was the best to date with great food and very attentive service. The staff are really friendly and took time to listen to our requests and made sure we were well looked after throughout the meal. Thanks to the team.

Our friends took us to what turned out to be a wonderful night out. The food was superb and the service excellent. They have set a standard which I will now use when visiting other restaurants!!

We visit this restaurant any time we are looking for a special treat and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is always welcoming with friendly but not pushy staff. If you are unsure about the type of cuisine, we can recommend the mezze platter which gives you great and generous portions of a variety of courses to suit all taste... More

A lovely little Turkish restaurant away from the city centre with a mediterranean twist. They do a special supper menu up till 18:30 hr which gives 2 courses for £15 which is a bargain. I started with the chicken wings which were nice enough, the garlic dip should see me vampire free for a month or two and the strip... More

We had booked for the early supper menu, and we were running late! However the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The menu was varied and very reasonably priced for 2 courses. Everyone enjoyed their chosen dishes and the service was quick and efficient. We went as a family of 8 and had a very special time - we ordered... More

I am a great fan of this restaurant and the original one in Skene Street. I hadn't been here for a while so was pleased to return shortly before Christmas with some friends. At my suggestion we had the vegetarian vezir which is a meze selection of hot and cold dishes. The plates just kept coming and there were several... More

...having just posted some reviews of holiday restaurant experiences I realised I've been to this place 3 times in the last 6 months and am going agai. at end Jan and yet I've never reviewed it . Almost without noticing it's become my default restaurant of choice in Aberdeen. Great food and service. Keep it up!
