    We have been regulars here for many years but over the last couple of visits we have noticed the quality of the meat has slipped yet prices have escalated. Service was ok but at these prices we will give the restaurant a miss for a while.

    Would have been more enjoyable but too crowded and tables too close together. I know that in these times you need all the customers you can get but the noise and people trying to squeeze past was not enjoyable. Shame. Would come again but not on a Saturday night.

    Gem of a restaurant, extremely good food and very attentive staff. Couldn't really ask for anything more. We both had the mixed shish, the food was very tender, fresh and well presented. I'd definately recommend this restaurant!!

    Nice local Turkish food with friendly staff. I am vegan and they had 1 or 2 things I could eat but would have preferred more choice. Great that they are doing the eat out initiative still I hadn’t realised that before we went.

    Staff met each client at the door (they were all wearing masks) and ensured we had a mask on while walking to our table. The tables were discreetly screened. The staff and food were brilliant.

    BH family lunch, taking advantage of the EOTHO discount. Great food as always but the service could do with some tweaks. It’s rude to say the least to be asked immediately, first thing as soon as we walked through the door with a reservation, when we will be free to give up the table. When I answered ‘it depends on how fast you serve the food’ I got a very cold and unfriendly reaction from the manageress. The waiter was very distracted and it also took a while to get any table attention or for someone to take our order.

    Have been there quite a few times. This time I went with a few friends on a Friday evening. Totally packed so a bit noisy. But the food was very tasty, as always. Good hearty portions. Good service despite it being so busy. Always enjoy it there. Would highly recommend to friends.

    Very pleasant evening. Staff extremely attentive. In fact overly so. Food very good - portions not huge but all very tasty. Excellent choice of restaurant for my vegetarian family. Value for money is much better at lunchtime with the 2 course meal offer. Food was fresher then too. The lighting was a little too bright for me. I would have preferred it dimmed so a little more atmospheric

    There was a big party in the night we went, so the service wasn’t as good as usual because they were concentrating mainly on the large party, but it was still good & food always good here
