    We had 2 courses (no room for desert) which were great. I had halloumi for starters & Sheftali for mains. My wife had Cacik & mixed shish. We’ve been before so we know the food is always good.

    From the time we got there till we left, we were treated to excellent service from all of the staff. Our waitress, Katerinna ( I think) was helpful, friendly and had a great personality. Nothing was too much trouble and the manager who also served us should be very proud of his tea, . Thank you from myself, Cathy & 2 friends. We will be back.

    food as usual excellent. Staff friendly. Our only bug is normally the staff at 10.30pm stand with their coats on by the door and also turning lights off because they want you to leave. They normally come over to the table at 10pm asking you for last drink orders from the bar. This didn't really happen on this particular visit as the restaurant was very busy. I just don't agree with Friday or Saturday evenings when they do this. I do think it could put people off going back as it would normally make us feel like that but the food is very good and its walking distance for us so its very convenient.

    Very nice restaurant which we use for special occasions as it is a cut above somewhere to go just for a meal. Great location especially in summer when you can sit outside looking at the lake. Little disappointed this time with the mixed grill as lamb chop was fatty and rib had little meat but waitress apologised and discounted the bill.

    Had a really super meal. We all had the meze which was delicious. We had a window seat overlooking the beautiful park. The staff were very friendly & the service very efficient. A hidden gem.

    I have been here a couple of times before and my experience has been pleasant. This time I brought some friends in which it was my recommendation, I was disappointed that my friends meat was fatty and chewy with the shared mixed grill dish and the rice was cold. I felt a little embarrassed as this was my recommendation. I love the Raphael’s location and beautiful atmosphere. I am surprised for a Friday evening this place should be filled to the brim. Something is missing, maybe the quality of food needs to be at a very high standard for people to return. I have visited many Turkish restaurants and Lara grill in Dagenham is a better quality food than Raphael’s. Maybe staff / chef could take a visit to Lara grill on a Friday Evening to see what Raphael’s is missing. I do not think these friends I brought will return to Raphael’s in the future. I may return in the future as I love the atmosphere and beautiful fountain in the lake. I hope my feedback has been helpful. Kind regards Jean

    We always eat here when we are in Romford. I always have either the salmon or the chicken shish. They both come with rice and salad , we have a bowl of fat chips as well. Yummy! The restaurant is immaculate, clean fresh, and in the summer the outside seating is just lovely. The staff are wonderful, couldn't be any more helpful and friendly.

    What makes this restaurant is the staff and how friendly and obliging they are. As always the food is lovely.
