The food here is really good, hence why they always seem to be quite busy. Particularly the bulgur pilaf it's delicious.more

Pretty decent, there's another restaurant in the area that I favour, but I went here on a recommendation - and I certainly wasn't disappointed!

The staff were friendly and courteous, the food was fresh and full of flavour, and I left with a smile on my face!more

I have a new love in my life - the moussaka at Durum. It doesn't quite top the lamb sis but it's pretty damn good.

They say that variety is the spice of life. Well every time I've tried a different Turkish restaurant I've been disappointed.

Durum - you just get better and better! YUM!more
