Owned by the same family since the 1960s, this polished Turkish restaurant now counts Boris Johnson among its fans. The usual eastern clichés are absent from the chic, modern room, though the young waiters still play their traditional role with a twinkle in the eye as they greet the ladies. There’s the odd report of slipping standards when it comes to the food, though the fairly lengthy menu still holds plenty of enticements. Incongruously, traditional British roasts are served on Sundays, but it’s the Turkish dishes that tempt the taste buds. How about incik (slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with tomatoes, onions & oregano) or moussaka made to a family recipe, followed by apricots filled with cream & pistachio nuts? A short choice of cocktails for pre-dinner sipping joins a few well-chosen wines on the drinks list.
