Cappadocia

The giant chandelier is the talk of the town, making it hard not to notice there’s an exciting new restaurant in Walton-on-Thames. The glittering light is a beacon to anyone driving through central Walton. It certainly pulled me in for dinner – another outing with my father-in-law, husband & kids too.

Walton is the second location of the popular Turkish restaurant, the first is in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Cappadocia opened July 6 and shares the central bit of the one way system with Zios.

Heaps of work has been put in to convert the former accountancy into a modern restaurant. A lot of thought and money has clearly gone into the renovation and the result is impressive. As my husband commented, “This is too nice for Walton.”

Masses of light flood in through the huge windows, making the space bright and airy and good people/car watching. The lights dim at eight o’clock for a more grown up mood.

A show kitchen is located at one side, so you can watch your food being prepared.

The beautiful chandelier greets you at the door. It’s so large it is recessed into the ceiling.

When you manage to take your eyes off it, the host and hostess are waiting with a warm welcome.

The service is extremely friendly. They engaged in conversation with my children, making them feel special. They invited me in to the kitchen to take a photo when they saw me attempting to do so through the glass. They were enthusiastic at explaining the menu and everything arrived/departed efficiently.

The menu is extensive. Even if Turkish food isn’t your thing, you’re bound to find something you like on the menu.

We had an assortment of food. The adults all opted for a starter plus a salad for the table. My fil opted to have another starter for his main. One child ordered from the adult menu and one from the kids menu. My husband & I both had regular mains, mine from the vegetarian section (yes, section, this is a great restaurant for vegetarians.)

What we ate:

“Lentil Soup £4.90 Homemade lentil soup with homemade bread.”

Everyone enjoyed their food immensely. All food is made fresh onsite, including the bread, and it was apparent in the taste.

There’s a set menu option. There are specials throughout the week. They do a good lunch special. There’s also belly dancing on Thursday evenings. Basically there’s something for everyone to like at Cappadocia. I wish it every success.
