This is a gem. The main restaurant area leads into a cozy bazaar style dance floor area with tables and seating, and there is further seating to the rear. Nights where there is a belly dancer are excellent, and on New Years Eve, 2006, our most recent visit, the middle eastern food, buffet, was thoughtfully prepared and presented, tasty and plentiful. Cold starters, hot dishes and then fresh fruit and baclava type pastries. The belly dancer performed for about 40 minutes to an enthusiastic crowd. The dj plays Asian/Turkish/middle eastern pop which kept the dance floor packed until it was time to leave. Lorenzo and his son run the place very well, and there is always security on the door and in the place itself, but they are the most polite men and non intrusive. As are the staff. I would say that Ahir attracts mainly middle eastern/Turkish clientele, and this really adds to the atmosphere, and what is nice is that the whole family come, including baby and grandma. It is also somewhere where a group of women can go and enjoy themselves. Entry was by pre booked ticket, costing 25 and the only extras are drinks, wine approx 12 per bottle, sparkling wine at midnight 2.50 per glass. Large Efes bottle beer 3. On Tuesday evenings Emily teaches belly dancing from 7pm 5, and Salsa lessons are on another night. On our very first evening at Ahir, approx 2 or 3 years ago, we (2 couples) entered the restaurant, it was full of beautiful women having celebrations, the TV was on (muted) showing British football. A couple of women cheered as the 2 fair haired men in our party entered, and within a few minutes these men were drinking a cold Efes beer. They thought they were in heaven!
