Happy Customers

Used to live round the corner from this place and would see the owner frequently - very friendly and chatty. I've eaten in and taken out numerous times and it's been fantastic. Every. Single. Time. Portions are generous, service is prompt, and staff always very accommodating. I will absolutely keep coming back here.

Managed to fit 20 of us in for New Year’s Eve as let down by another restaurant great service and gorgeous food brilliant with the kids too.

This is my favourite local restaurant. I've lost count how many times I've dined here. Every meal is freshly prepared and each time I visit I never leave disappointed. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly. Thank you for making every experience as good as the last.

Me and my partner went for a late tea, there was plenty to pick from. Great atmosphere, clean looking and fresh food. The staff are all very friendly and create a happy and comforting atmosphere. They will accommodate for a vegan choice on food too, which can be tricky when dining out. We highly recommend this restaurant and we definitely are returning.

Booked a table here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The decor isn't much to look at but food and service make well up for it. Initially we thought items on the menu looked rather expensive per dish. However you get a decent amount of food and all main meals are accompanied with rice, salad and warm fresh bread! Chicken wing starter was super tasty! I can still taste them now! Then we had the lamb chops which were juicy, tender and marinated in a lovely seasoning.

While staying in Chester one night for my wife's birthday, we booked dinner at this restaurant after looking at the reviews in Tripadviser. We were not disappointed. I liked the set up of the place where you can see the food being prepared and the lovely aroma greeted you when you arrived. The food itself was great and plentiful and we could have done without the starter on reflection. Having travelled to Turkey, I can say that it was on par to our eating experiences and the price was excellent for the standard provided. I would return and I would recommend to others while you stay in Chester.

This was really good, fantastic service and georgeous tasting food, exceptionally large portions. This is a must visit, dont be put off by outside appearance, i cannot rave about this place enough.
