We ate here twice during our 7 night stay in Inverness...........that says it all. It was absolutely superb with the most fantastic food and service. We love Turkish food and consider it to be one of the finest cuisines in the World when it is...done well. Well it really is done well here.........we have been to Turkey many times and this is absolutely at the top of the tree. The owner and who we believed to be his son, indulged us with our BBC Holiday Turkish phrases that we learned from a cassette tape many, many years ago. Thank you to all the staff for your kindness and hospitality. Highly recommended.More

Today we visited Aspendos. It was a bit pricy but I guess everything is going up. We had the Aspendos mixed grill and it was a very large sharing plate which was recommended to us. The food was amazing , I can’t fault it. Also...the staff were great. In particular Mustafa. He has very attentive and helpful. I highly recommend this place for a birthday or special occasion, it is great.More

Group menu was really good value, getting to try all the starters. Amazing meal. The salmon was very tasty but addition of the chefs own chilli sauce just made it even better.

Visited Aspendos 12.7.22 been here before as we really enjoyed it so we went back. The food was good however the staff could not be bothered and the woman behind the counter certainly did not look happy. Were there in April and I know prices...have gone up but this has gone up considerably and stuff that was included in your meal before were now additions so disappointed. Certainly not worth the money we paid.More

My wife and I ordered the "sharing" menu -- eight smallish appetizers plus one main each. More food than we needed, but we wanted to sample a variety of tastes. Pretty good, nothing really stood out. Service was meh too; getting our water glasses filled...was an issue for some reason.More

We enjoyed an early dinner before Andreas Bocceli concert. It was very busy. My husband ordered the chicken skewers and I had the mousaka. The chicken was gorgeous. The home made chilli was also a hit. My mousaka was excellent too. We had to remind...our server to bring water a couple of times though they did serve the wine quickly. There was only one choice for dessert - baklava. It was delicious so I wasn’t too disappointed. We were served by Mustafa. Very attentive. Definitely recommend.More

My first review for two years+. Terrific food, service and ambience. Not cheap, but worth it. Book in advance - many were turned away while we were there.

Our family went to this restaurant based on a recommendation. From the start it seemed to go wrong. My 2 daughters went to get the table and his first question is if there are kids. We ordered drinks and they seemed to be watered down....We asked about items on the menu and he could not be bothered to explain the differences In the dishes. My daughter ordered hellim and they brought hummus instead. He then would not correct the mistake. He invited us to leave which we did. He made every one of us feel very uncomfortable.More

We happened upon this Turkish Restaurant and enjoyed the food, authentic felt it was overpriced to be honest. Friendly staff but not well organised and struggled to get the staffs attention.
