    Being a Turkish and trying many Turkish restaurants outside Turkey, I can say that Babaji is realy realy good! Taste of all food is as good as a high quality local restaurant at Istanbul.

    A definite must-try are the Pide Develi, which is diced beef, tomato, turkish green pepper and parsley or Manti,a Turkish ravioli, filled with beef and topped with yoghurt and chilli and butter.Yummy! Read more

    Amazing place! Stuff is Turkish and very friendly. Food is mouthwatering. We had few mezze. Artichoke was very good, the pide (we had one with beef sausage and the local cheese) was just perfect.

    Loved the place. The food was delicious, try especially Develi Pide and Ayran. Manti is a good option too. Kunefe is well cooked and Turkish coffee is served in a classy way!

    Midye tava, kisir, pide, manti,turkish coffe, music, servis, all was good! Prices were high but it is ok for the location and the taste. Timing was perfect for a dinner. It is not a fast food rest.

    Fantastic pide and topkapi chicken. Plates are small so get 3 plates for 2 people. All the food is unique and delicious. Loved the desserts as well. Cozy, intimate atmosphere for a date.

    Been wanting to try here for ages, it didn't disappoint. Everything we ordered was so good! Waiter was lovely too – he made sure we didn't over order as portion sizes are large, so it's easily done!

    Amazing pide. Afton was our favorite. The Borek was also really good. If you like Turkish I recommend it for sure, if you don't know Turkish yet I recommend you to try it.

    Amazing lentil soup with flatbread. We walked in with no reservations but they still seated us. A solid choice for post-show dinner.

    Excellent Turkish in West End. Extremely good value for money! They don't take bookings, so you have to queue. They even installed heaters outside for customers' queue. Very thoughtful!

    Very good Turkish restaurant. Pide was very delicious. Kuzu shish was lower than my expectation. Kabak desert was good.

    I wasn't a fan of the pide, very cheesy & doughy. I did love the spicy salad & the other vegetarian mezzes. Check out Aryan, similar to a salted lassi.

    Delicious Turkish pizza called "pide", friendly staff and great ambiance! There is no reservations, you have to queue a bit but worth it

    Food is very satisfying (in terms of taste, portions are very small). Taste is quite similar that you can find in Istanbul. Try Turkish Tea after your meal.

    Pide with shrimps was below average - too sticky and shrimps were deep dozen and defrosted. Coffee, desserts and haloumi is awesome

    Traditional Turkish eatery in a stylise environment. Tasty but slightly pricey for this type of food. They need to fix the waiting times for the food to come to the table.

    Food was nothing special for its price (with maybe the exception of the "Pide"), but the service was great, the venue is pleasant and the location is super centric.

    Some nice mezzes and Turkish pides. Good for a quick meal, a few vegetarian options if you love cheese.

    We adored the idea of here. Decoration, menu and the background music. Waiters are so polite and they speak 'proper' Turkish. Perhaps they've been selected carefully. BUT FOOD IS ALWAYS LATE :(
