An intimate, dimly-lit little restaurant close to the London Eye, with a focus on Turkish cuisine. Coloured-glass chandeliers give the room a hint of Anatolian authenticity, while two massive mirrors make it look far more roomy than it is. 

The menu goes big on meze, with options including kalamar tava (fried squid with walnut sauce, served on rocket leaves with lemon wedges) and broad beans served with yoghurt and bright-red kırmızı biber (chilli flakes). Mains include çoban kavurma (lamb stew with tomatoes and peppers) and classic adana kebab with juicy minced lamb. 

Drinks include Efes beer and raki – an aniseed-flavoured alcoholic drink popular in Turkey.

We came here for my friends birthday after stumbling across it...........drum roll.........it was rubbish! Dissapointing because the inside has really nice decorations with paintings on the walls and beautiful lamps & lanterns. However, the food was embarrasingly rubbish. I had a steak which didn't even include any sides such as salad or veg, there was chips of course but they were even rubbish. The steak its self sat in the middle of the plate all small and rubbish with sauce that looked like puke, puked over it. My friends had burger, which looked like a microwave burger you buy from a cornershop, or something you make when your drunk. The chef must of been drunk, was the chef even a human? was he/she a child? or was it an animal? You can make a really nice looking poo sandwich, but at the end of the day its a poo sandwich. Won't be going here again!! Oh no no no! I'd rather eat a bowl of poo

It's incredible... I can't understand how they can have good reviews. We had the worst dinner in London EVER. No competitors. Mc Donald's is wayyyy muuuch better. We had terrible burgers, dry, poor, not tasty. We were shocked. Some of us had a steak, terrible too, and without the sauce described. No side salads at all, just few chips. Incredible, I'm still shocked. But also... we had to wait MORE THAN ONE HOUR for this absolute crap food, when the place was in a normal busy time. I can't believe this business is still running...
