We were staying with friends in Northampton and were so fortunate to be taken to this lovely restaurant, we arrived early evening and had a table booked. All food was great but highlights were Ciger - hot starters - chicken livers with red onion and my main of Salmon Chargrilled with salad, lovely piece of salmon cooked perfectly. You need to book as it was really busy.

We had heard so many great reviews of this restaurant and sadly we probably had unrealistic expectations. Nevertheless the service was excellent (attentive and friendly) and the food was very good - well worth a visit.

We've been regular visitors to Pamukkale when we're in Northampton, but after this visit we shan't be back.

Having reviewed the menu in the window, we went in and were seated quickly and then moved quickly because there wasn't room for me and the fern!

We know the menu reasonably well (we've probably eaten here 4-5 times previously, and had a variety of dishes) and I've reviewed the restaurant very favourably before.

We'd already decided that we were going to have the set menu 1, which was shown outside the restaurant at £22.95 per head. However, the menu we were handed showed set menu 1 as £26.95, We queried this with the waitress, who said that the new menu had been introduced several days before. Ok, we thought, we'd just have the special mixed grill: but that had also increased in price by £3.

We settled for Karisik Sis, which had also increased by £2 since our last visit. The mixed meze had also increased in price. We were told this was because of the hummus (and I had read somewhere that there's a chickpea shortage).

The complimentary hot bread and dips arrived, and were lovely as usual. Our waitress then tried to give us someone else's meal: it was only because I realised that there was only lamb on the plate that I queried it, and the meal was removed and taken to the correct table.

It wasn't as if the restaurant was busy: this was after 2pm, so there were only 3 or 4 other tables occupied in the restaurant.

We once again raised the issue of the menu with one of the managers. He said that the menu had been changed the day before, and there was quite a production as they tried to take the menu out of the window. However, I notice that their online menu is still (24th May, 5 days later) still showing the lower prices. The manager actually thanked us, and said that they wouldn't have taken the menu down if it hadn't been for us mentioning it to them.

All that being said, the meal was good - if somewhat expensive. A one-course lunch, for two people, 1 pint of beer and a soft drink, that cost £39.90 which was at the new price: we feel that perhaps, because we'd pointed out their error, they could have perhaps split the difference. If we hadn't already got our drinks, we would have walked.

Sorry, you've priced yourselves out of our league. It was good, but not that good!
