Turkish
Fora Restaurant is one of the best Turkish restaurants in London. We are famous for lamb/chicken shish or mix grill kebabs accompanied by our delicious cold and hot mezes which are part of authentic Turkish cuisine.
The interior design is based on Ottoman Empire tradition that is sophisticated and luxurious. Therefore Fora is considered as a fine dining house offering all day eating experience.
However our accomplished guitarist Faruk Ceviz who plays regularly in Fora creates the right ambiance for diners. For a romantic dinner or party celebrations, Faruk will set the sonic mood accordingly. On Saturday evenings, we also host belly dancing show which is a favourite for many weekend customers.

From greeting to service of deliciously tasteful food, everything was simply excellent. Servers were attentive and polite. Along with your drink of wine or your choice, I would recommend starting off with meze platter for two, which includes variety of delicious appetizers. My main course was a pasta dish, which was perfectly blended with sauce and seasoning. Our party was there on a Monday evening, so it was pleasantly quiet for us, perfect for business meetings. I didn't pay the bill but prices on the menu looked reasonably budgeted.

We were welcomed by the girl at the enterance, coats were taken, polite and professional. Staff were polite and attentive, This place used to offer some small bits of bread and a dip when you sat, but they didn't serve anything, it was a birthday surprise launch and we ordered mixed grill, the food wasn't exceptional quality like before and it felt a bit bland and very little compared to the price. Their Adana kebab was also undercooked and since no one came to check if the food is OK, we had to go along with esting it. Had some nice Turkish coffee and Baklava which was very very good, and the staff arranged for a small tiny candle on the desert which was a nice touch. Overall not a great value for Money, but sadly there are only a couple of choices of Turkish cuisine in the City.

The food and service was excellent.
The calamari starter's was very nice and the salmon kebab was very moist. The monkfish kebab was also pretty good. Nice selection of bottles of wine too.
The service was excellent with just the right amount of attention and it was not rushed.
There was a guy playing instrumental music on his guitar and he was really good so it was fun trying to guess what he was playing.

I picked Fora because my friend worked around the area, and it would be convenient without wasting time on commuting. The set lunch was excellent value... and the food turned out very good, with healthy portions. All in all, ambience, service and food portions and quality received a thumbs up, and I have no complaints. In fact, I have been recommending this restaurant to friends since I dined there.

Table was booked for 7.30 and immediately jumped upon to make order for food, we ordered and starters turned up again immediately, the removed starters and actually bought food out again before they had removed starters, then when we asked to wait they took food away and left under lamps until we were ready some 10 minutes later by this time the food was dry, again disappointing as the waitress was asked that the food was not left to dry up.....mmmm to late.

We declined dessert....

The restaurant was not busy, but there seemed a need to get us in and out as quickly as possible. Spoilt the evening.

Nice romantic booth type table for a date, food was tasty and authentic, if a little rustic, but great for the price. Would have preferred flat bread with our hummus and baba ganoush, but perhaps they couldn't get any due to the snow. I'd definitely go back and recommend to others.

I’ve been to Fora many times and it never fails to deliver on food. The quality is far superior to the comparable Haz and the price is also reasonable considering the area. Service is never that great here but when you know that you can keep on top of it.

Great restaurant always take my wife there's great authentic food and the service is specifically good. Never left Fora with a bad taste. The guitarist played at our wedding and we still get people asking for his details. Great all round experience and would always be the first place on our list for eating out in the City.
