Mother’s day was a great experience and we got a photo taken and passed on to us which was an excellent touch! Can’t wait to return. I did find the soft drinks a little pricey but other than that very happy with the meal!

Met my nieces for lunch at Skewd and had a really delicious meal. The waiter told us they had won and award and so offered us a glass of Prosecco to celebrate. This was very thoughtful and most appreciated.
Food wonderful along with service and cost. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will return

The best and most attentive service I have had in a restaurant for a long time. The food was good and very tasty. I would certainly recommend it and will be visiting it again in the near future. Bit noisy on a Saturday night but well worth the experience. The baked alaska pudding comes with a surprise and was delicious.

Not that the management will care as this is, somewhat surprisingly, a very popular restaurant but we won't be visiting again. The food is fine but pretty standard fare, quite tasty and not unreasonably priced but the noise is unbearable. The music, more often than not with a deep base beat, is played very loud so everyone has to talk in raised voices in order to have a conversation with others at their table. I gave up trying to join the conversation at my table...and there's nothing wrong with my hearing. Also, customers are packed in with tables ridiculously close together so it's a squeeze just to get seated. When we asked if the music could be turned down just a little we were told that the owner was "young and likes to create an atmosphere"! That's fine, all I can say is that it was a relief to leave and we won't ever return.

Far too expensive for what it was. The quality of the meat and flavour doesn’t compare to the local Turkish and Greek restaurants in the area, and the price of the meal was extortionate. And my meat was very chewy. For 2 mixed meat kebabs, dip, 1 starter and 1 beer for £90 i was in absolute shock that they could charge £25 per main. It’s a shame as the ambience is great, sides and starters were good, but the owners are very greedy with their prices clearly, and taking advantage of the local customer. Will not be returning unfortunately

Food is always perfect. Service a little off - long waits for drinks and not making table suitable for first dishes (decorative plates still in place etc. We always seem to go when it’s a lull so can’t really comment on ambience. The place is our go to for Anatolian food and we are a half hour drive away.

Fantastic food. Quite possibly the best scallops I've ever had and the octopus was gorgeous.

Be careful of the grilled chillies, they are deceptive.... though absolutely gorgeous

Love this restaurant and have recommended it highly numerous times to friends and family to the point that the staff know my face well. However, I was a was very disappointed on my last visit. We requested to move tables due to being right in front of the door on a freezing evening and were told the table was reserved going to be pushed together with the table next to ours for a reservation of four. This was an acceptable excuse however no more than 10 minutes later a couple came in and sat at the seats we had requested???? It seems as if there is some preferential treatment as clearly there was only 2 of them. Small things make a huge difference, customers, especially loyal ones should never be made to feel second rate. EVER

A table of 8 for a Birthday lunch. Service was perfect, well timed, unobtrusive but friendly. Nice to see the food being cooked - breads delicious. Presentation of food fabulous, delicious flavours - the mixed meze lovely and both chicken and Lamb Shish yummy. A great place for lunch any day (do spoil yourself!) or for a special occasion.

I had heard and read very good reviews on this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The bread was excellent and the chicken and lamb were superb. My only criticism is that the restaurant was cold and after spending a couple of hours at there at lunchtime it meant that you couldn’t fully relax/enjoy. Apart from that it was excellent.

Had the whole grilled seabass- bones and all.
it was lush. well seasoned and cooked to perfection.
hubby enjoyed his mixed grill too. very tasty indeed.
Would have given the whole experience 5 stars if finding parking was easy - not the restaurants fault i know...but its all part of the night.
