    When I first went to this restaurant I was very in love with the food. It was great I never had such juicy and tasty lamb in my life. Since that time im a usual customer in Iskele.

    Lamb Casserole = Yummm!!!! Lamb is well cooked with good sauce. And don't be fooled by the small size of the pot - it's a decent amount!

    Some of the best prawns I've eaten anywhere, plus a decent atmosphere. Watch out for the water they leave on the tables though... £2.90 a bottle is a bit cheeky.

    The Set Menu is a good value option and felt very authentic. Nice Lamb Casserole too.

    Ruuuuuuuude staff. As per most Turkish places there are vegan options but why bother when there are lots of places with friendly staff.
