My husband and I invited a guest and had lunch at this restaurant. We were greeted by the staff who very warm and friendly. The ambience was great - clean and bright - decor excellent - gentle Turkish music in the background. Very good menu. We had starters with Turkish naan and sauces - and then a huge platter of mixed grill - lamb chops, kebabs, rice, chicken, spare ribs - this came with a platter of mixed salad. For dessert - had the balava and the coconut icecream - Delicious - They also had a good selection of wines and alcoholic drinks. This was followed by Turkish tea and Turkish delight - we would strongly recommend this restaurant whether it be for lunch or dinner or just a snack.

We decided to visit the newly opened Derwish Turkish restaurant today. The welcome was warm and friendly. The menu is quite comprehensive with a mix of; mezes, grill's and caseroles. We opted for the Derwish special 1, which comprised chicken wings, lamb chops, lamb ribs chicken skewer, lamb skewer and lamb kofta - plus rice, Bulgar wheat & salad.
The food was succulent, full of flavour and well cooked - not dried out. The lamb was tender and not 'chewy' but was just well done.
We will be coming back. RECOMMENDED.

We went in on the opening night expecting a bit of chaos, but was surprised by the smoothness of the service. The bread was excellent, the main was lovely and very nicely flavoured. The overall atmosphere was very good, highly recommended.

Celebrated my birthday with 6 guess on Friday night. The restaurant was fully booked but that did not alter the great service and food we received. Meat cooked to high standard, fresh and delicious!
