There's certainly a bit of aesthetic opulence at this Turkish restaurant on Southampton Row. And while the intricate gilding, frescos, murals and mosaics might not quite befit the grandeur of the Ottoman Empire itself, they certainly offer an interesting backdrop to Antalya's food and drink.
The menu focuses on authentic Turkish dishes, though classic Mediterranean options feature too. Expect, then, tabbouleh, falafel and even penne pasta alongside imam bayildi, kofte kebabs, Turkish mezze, moussakka and ozel incik - the house special of slow-cooked knuckle of lamb oven-baked with potatoes, carrots, celeriac and shallots.
Keep an eye out for set menus, too.
