I can't understand the bad reviews for this place- yes, the staff is not Scottish. Yes, they move you along and are quick to clear the tables. One look at the staff tells you to order the Turkish food and not the usual lunch fare....More

A good quality diner. Well prepared fish & chip shop produce and also tasty Mediterranean dishes. This fusion works well, in part due to the friendly attentive service. Free wifi also!
