Food was great, it’s bang in the middle of Leicester Square so a bit touristy, a bit slow on service but overall good!

The food was amazing! A portion for 1 person is enough to feed 2 people and then some. The staff were very friendly and energetic. A bit on the pricier side, but for the portions you’re getting, definitely worth it!

Nice location and food was fairly good quality, just a few hiccups, the waitress seemed to keep forgetting parts of our order, resulting in my friend getting her food 30mins after the rest of the table! And as friendly as the service was it was extremely slow. We had somewhere booked after for my friends birthday but as a result of there slow service we were over 30mins late for our second booking. Not the best and I’d probably not return!

First time here for me, I can recommend everything here. We had a mixed grill platter and sharers to start which was absolutely superb
Highly recommend the service provided by the lovely and charming Antonella who looked after us all afternoon and made our day so enjoyable

Food was nice enough but the service was painfully slow. They completely forgot to bring out the starters and then brought them out when we had nearly finished our mains. The heater on our table also wasn't working so got pretty cold. Wouldn't book again.

Hummus was so good, as was meat platter. Wrap not so great but still good. Covid-safe and right on Leicester Square

No nonsense and very, very tasty. Warm outside under the heaters is good - so long as you aren't too near the Leicester Sq buskers you will enjoy the evening.

Absolutely insane! Tables were a little close together with others but the experience of the food was service was lovely! A definite win. If you get the chance try the Cotton candy cocktail and the lamb chops are to absolutely die for!

I booked in advance for my wife’s 40th birthday we was welcomed by the really friendly staff who wished my wife happy birthday. We were offered a lovely table with shelter and a heater which my wife was really great-full for as it was a bit chilly we also had a perfect view of the live music in Leicester Square As for the food we had the mix grill and it was amazing great value thanks for Making my wife’s day a special one .

LOVELY food but because we were sitting outside (covid rules) it got cold quicker. Food was great but only downside was that they took an hour to put the heating on, at our side of the restaurant so it was very cold! By the time the heating was on we were leaving.

NOT a real Turkish restaurant. Don’t let the name fool ya. You cannot even get the menu in Turkish. It is an Arab restaurant faking to be Turkish. Foods are fancy looking tasteless and cold imitation. My kebab wasn’t even cooked enough and served right. And they charge way too much for these failed attempts. Even the tea they served us was prepared ages ago and tasted like agony. I gave 2* just for the good location.
