    We have been going to Elif since it opened and we have not eaten any where else that would beat it. Great value for money.
    Never fails to impress is a must also they have Elif in Childwall which is they same company.
    You have to book in advance or be very disappointed

    My favourite spot on Lark Lane by far food is exquisite atmosphere is great and service is lovely/friendly & efficient. Elif is something different – and it does it so well! I can’t recommend this restaurant enough!
