The food was well worth the price, we ordered 6 different main dishes and can say that all plates went back clean. The clay pot is more about the experience than the flavours, still can't complain though.

The service was great, staff were very helpful and knowledge. Everyone spoke English very well. We were served bread with olives after ordering and after we finished they served us tea for free.

It’s so overrated. we were looking for to experience real Turkish food, all the dishes we ordered were good but nothing special it’s not like i’ll visit again . The place is a bit small but the staff are very very welcoming and friendly

The only reason im giving 3 stars it’s because of their service, entertainment show and food presentation.
Its a tourist restaurant and you will not find turkish customers because of the quality of food and expensive food.

The food is dry and over cooked.
