    dined on 24/05/2013
  • "I've been to Fora twice now for team meals and the atmosphere has always been great. The food is always seasoned and cooked well with generous portions (we've had a set menu both times). Staff are friendly, attentive and efficient and you aren't pushed to keep buying drinks. Very accomodating to last minute changes and requests. Will definitely be going back again."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "I have been to Fora a number of times now for lunch and always had a great meal. The service is quick and polite and there is a wide range of choice on the menu. For those that struggle to choose like me, there are some set menus that are also great value. I would recommend this for a business lunch or a social get-together with friends."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Came here with a friend for a birthday meal. Food very good, nicely presented and generous portions.Much busier than I'd have anticipated on a Wednesday afternoon, much quieter after the business crowd made their way back to their offices."

    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "The food to fantastic, the service was very good and the entertainment was very good. My wife and I was celebrating our wedding anniversary and was lucky enough to be recommended the Fora. Only negative was the waitress didn't offer us a desert that was included in the set meal, but we was full so didn't need anymore food. So we didn't raise it as an issue."
    dined on 28/03/2014

    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "I hadn't actually been to this restaurant before but I was willing to take the risk since I saw great ratings on the Toptable app. I'm a huge fan of Turkish food so I had some idea of what I was in for. I went on a Monday evening so I wasn't expecting it to be packed but it actually was. Regardless my friends & I were catered to & didn't have to wait long to be served. The food came on time & was well presented. My friend who came late got her food straight away which hardly happens at some places. I was able share my birthday cake & receive plates & cutlery for it without an extra charge. Overall if you are looking for a no fuss restaurant, decent pricing in the city of london. This is it! Turkish food done at it's best. I left satisfied!"
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "Lovely meal with good service and entertainment in the form of a belly dancer. Great value - big portions!"

  • "Had a very enjoyable lunch in the restaurant, Service and good were excellent"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Always like the food at Fora as easy to be healthy with the fish and salad. Great service too."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "Service was strange - couldn't have a jug of water on table as they hadn't got enough jugs. Couldn't have a second glass for more water for the same reason. Had to wait for waitress to fill glasses instead which, after complaining for second time, the waitress did fairly quickly. Food OK - not as good as my first visit 18 months ago. Think they have been seduced by the pile it high sell it cheap mentality on friday and saturday nights into thinking that diners won't care if it's cheap enough. The meal we had was probably worth what we paid, but not at all worth full price."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I love this restaurant. The staff are great and the atmosphere is wonderful. Good for all ages. Really fun."
    dined on 27/04/2013
  • "Three of us had a business lunch at Fora. The food was good, well priced and well prepared. Service at our table was very slow however, as everyone who arrived long after us were served their good some time before us. Our waitress also rolled her eyes as I decided not to order any dessert. Otherwise, a restaurant suitable for everyone."
    dined on 10/03/2014
  • "I had been to For a previously and the food was certainly up to the standards observed on my previous visit. Fresh, fragrant, really nice. The service was also excellent. The only thing that was a little bit of a disappointment for us was that midway through our dinner, a belly-dancer came out and danced for about 20 mins... and the music she was dancing to was simply too loud, we couldn't hear each other speak!"
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Great value with the 50% off set menu inc a glass of bubbly though had that been full price, would have felt ripped off. Food was very good, though not a great deal above an averagely good middle eastern restaurant. Quiet but it was Tuesday night."
    dined on 04/03/2014
  • "Went to Fora for a work team lunch. Whole experience went very well. Efficient service and the food was good quality and very good value too. Would be very happy to recommend"
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "I went there with my girlfriend for the International Women's Day, we both liked it a lot! The service is just way too professional, felt very welcomed. The ambiance is also very nice, romantic lovely for diner for two. There was guitarist playing which made it even better! Then, there was a show with belly dancer which was amazing! She invited the guest to dance and challenged them to show of their skills, it was very funny, we had good laugh. Overall the food was good and very good value you really cannot complain, also the show makes it very unique not just an ordinary restaurant where you eat and walk out! Very much recommended for birthday parties, romantic dinner or just a ordinary dinner."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "I enjoyed the Fora Restaurant experience. We were greeted warmly and our waitress was lovely, friendly and efficient. The food was wonderful, very tasty and well presented. The acoustic guitar was a lovely touch making the atmosphere more romantic and the belly dancer was the icing on the cake. All in all my friend and I had a great time and will return."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "In the main drag at Houndsditch, so modern city restaurant, about 75% full, good noise levels, I was there with 2 friends and we could converse without worry. Food was FAB, the chicken liver dishes were to die for. The service was very attentive and staff very firendly will be back again! DF"
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "Overrated - it wasn't as good as reviews. Seafood wasn't fresh and lamb was too salty. Music was very loud and we had to shout at times."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Good range of choices on the menu, well prepared with generous servings and efficient service."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "We enjoyed our visit to Fora. We choose the special half price menu. Lovely range of mixed meze, then choice of main. All natural, fresh ingredients and very friendly service. Really enjoyed the live guitarist. Made for good atmosphere."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "service slower than normal but still very good food at extremely reasonable prices for this part of London"
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "I walked in, and a live guitarist was playing -- was off to a great start! The ambience was lovely. The cold meze platter as so delicious and fresh, and the bread was so good... I could barely eat my main! I ordered the Cintek Platter as my main - I found it a bit too sour (it was a sort of tomato sauce base) and found the potato bed not the best I've ever had. I definitely preferred the mezes. The dessert was delicious. And a lovely side of bubbly to go along with it. I would definitely revisit and recommend. The bellydancer was amazing.. she balance a saber on her hip and dropped down to the ground. Very impressed by her skills!"
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Went with my fiancée on Saturday evening. The ambience is great and the 50% off set menu promo was great value. The food was good but not outstanding. Starters were fine but hummus was not very flavourful and bread was a bit dry. Mains were good portions, freshly grilled and flavourful. Dessert was good too. I was more impressed by ambience (music, service, dancer, etc) than by the food. Starters should be fine tuned a bit to keep high standards of the restaurant."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Fora used to be my favourite restaurant where excellent food was paired with fantastic atmosphere and amazing music. Last time I visited I realised that what used to be two separate rooms has been merged into one huge space creating a really large hall and lots of noise. I was particularly disappointed to realise that I can only barely hear the classical guitar which used to be the main attraction for me. Overall, I will only return to Fora if changes had been made to the set up and if I know I can get truely beautiful experience with the calm music being at its core rather than the noise of an overcrowded dining room."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and continue to be impressed by the quality of food. I wonder why people persist with Haz down the road as it is an inferior competitor to Haz in every sense."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Guitar soloist was quite good... and provided a nice atmosphere."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "My partner and I booked this last minute as we fancied a meal out after some work drinks. We were very impressed as well. Good location close to Liverpool Street. We ended up having the 17.50 each top table deal. You get a good selection of starters. All were very tasty and seemed to have been freshly prepared. You choose your main course. Both were very good indeed. Lamb was succulent and not over cooked or chewy. If I had one complaint it would be there was too much food for two people. That's no bad thing really but I would have loved to have eaten what was left. Great Turkish restaurant. Hope to return."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Very good food, especially if you are a meat eater. Portions were large and service was good, although it was a little hard to catch their attention due to the restaurant being busy. Atmosphere was great and we were impressed with the meal."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "we enjoy our visits to Fora. The set menu is extremely good value, well cooked with lots of choice."
    dined on 24/06/2013
  • "prompt service, big portions, very good vallue. excellently cooked seafood. will return"
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "Very good food as always, nice ambience, good service and not too pricey considering the location. Much better option than Haz in my opinion."
