“Outstanding Turkish and Cypriot cuisine” – with an original, light spin that can come as a “real surprise” – wins plaudits for this Shoreditch venue. “Sitting at the counter watching the food being prepared is eye-opening; and owners (Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie) obviously love what they do”. “It’s not strictly vegetarian, but has many options if you are”.

“Dishes bursting with flavour” from a “lively”, “Turkish-with-a-twist” menu, win nothing but the highest regard for Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie’s “intimate little place” in Shoreditch (across the road from Leroy). “We especially enjoyed watching an (almost) entirely female brigade of cooks working so co-operatively and well together – it feels like a really intelligently thought-through restaurant, full of people who are passionate about the food”. Top Menu Tips – “really memorable pomegranate sauce lamb”, “fantastic kebabs” and “don’t miss out on ordering a pide, too”. See also Kyseri.

Selin Kiazim showcases her “superb, generous, tasty and thought-through Turkish food” in this “small but elegant”, tile-and-brick two-year-old, complete with open kitchen, in Shoreditch.

“An excellent Turkish newcomer with a modern twist” – Selin Kiazim’s “ambitious flavour combinations” (“innovative” kebabs, flatbreads and mezze) inspire good vibes for this tile-and-brick Shoreditch venture with open kitchen, as does its “welcoming” attitude.

"The menu length seems to have reduced recently but quality, atmosphere and service still up to the usual high standards. Excellent."
