We dined very early in a near-empty restaurant but they forgot one of our drinks and one of our main courses. The wait staff were polite and apologetic which I appreciated. The food was pretty good, but was a little overpriced considering that the service/ambiance wasn’t great. Small portion size and more expensive than other comparable businesses. They have a lot of positive reviews on google so we must have caught them on an off night.

spacious restaurant with party celebrations and dancing area adding to the atmosphere; very friendly, efficient staff and quick food preparation. The buffet was good value and a reasonable selection from the menu- we had easy enough food. Salads a little ordinary, Dolmades plain, dips standard, lamb cutlets delicious. i'll definitely go back and try the ala carte menu

Our experience was outstanding. Gorgeous waitress who didn't stop smiling. Waiter Mamoon so friendly and accommodating. All food fresh and delicious and we even got a free pizza! Fantastic value for money. Will definitely go back, next time on a weekend to catch the entertainment.

We ordered banquet for 4. Every thing was bought for two person. We have been in many places and ordered banquet. Never got served the way we got at your place. The food that we paid $190 we would have got better variety of food. Nothing special about the food. Bread and dips and one piece each of meat. And few spoons of rice very pathetic. Even the dessert was shocked for 4 people 1 each . You should improve the quantity if you need people to come over. The serve that was provided is a rip off . I will not recommended any one or come there at all. We have been to so many places and this was one place we were shocked with the food.

We had dinner here last Saturday.
The food was great but the service was so poor. We ordered a drink and waited 20 minutes for it to be served to us. For our entry, they gave us different types of dips, but waited 5 minutes for the bread. Desert took another 30 minutes to be delivered and apparently they ran out of Turkish delight, so they gave us baklava.
When we received our bill, it was doubled. Place is too noisy.

Great tasting Turkish food at an affordable price. Lovely service as well. The food arrived within minutes after we ordered. I would recommend that you go with an empty stomach and try out their "Acili Peynirli Pide" (entree), "Doner & Sauce" (main) and "Nutella Pide" (dessert).

The only complaint is the loud noise from the band that night (Friday). Very difficult to hold a conversation so wouldn't recommend for a date but great to go with your mates for a night out.

We've had dinner at Pinabasi several times, with our daughter, her partner, her one-year-old daughter. We eat early. The staff have been very welcoming of us, of children. The food is excellent, authentic, healthy, there are good vegetarian options. Meals are very reasonably priced.
