When you first walk into Ruya’s dining area you realise that, bizarrely, you can’t see the other end of the room. It’s like the world’s longest swanky corridor, complete with bar area, and three separate kitchen areas. Once seated you’ll get some some fairly tasty, if a little overly refined, Anatolian dishes. The aubergine crisps are particularly nice, and the kebabs are cooked excellently.
