I went for the first time last night. As a fan of the Turkish restaurants in Dalston and Stoke Newington I have been to many of them over the years and I don't understand what all the fuss is about this place. We had the over-priced set menu and the salads and starters were limp, the meat wasn't great, the bread was nothing special and it was over-priced. Don't believe the hype - if you walk up the road towards Stoke Newington you'll find better food in any of the other places nearby and for less money.

There is nothing special about this place and it is more expensive than nearby Turkish and Kurdish restaurants. Over rated, overpriced. Grilled meat is grilled meat and vegetarian main dishes are not even edible. Unfriendly waiting staff. Dalston has cheaper and better Turkish/Kurdish restaurants.

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 7/10

Tuesday, August 03, 2010 - Sucuk, Turkish beef sausages, looked like something out of a tin from the 1950s but tasted lovely - spicy and dense and with a good texture of real beef that belied their processed appearance; a plate of six chicken wings were crispy from the grill, moist inside and with a subtle piquant marinade; and a few slices of halloumi were nicely browned and served with a couple of good crispy pickles.
