"Great menu of mezzo and main dishes. The lamb shish was full of flavour, though the rice and salad accompanying it were a little bland. Our waitress was a bit brusque but efficient. The atmosphere was buzzing and lively but not too noisy."

"Continues to serve outstanding Turkish/Kurdish food. From cold mezze through to grilled main plates there is nothing to disappoint. Very generous portions (it is very easy to over-order!). Service is always friendly and welcoming. One of the best eating establishments on Upper Street."
