Turkish restaurant on King Street.

This is one of my favourite Cambridge restaurants, I go maybe three times a year.

If you turn up as a large group or without booking you'll probably be given a mixed starter followed by the set main course, but since you should probably order the mixed starter anyway, and the set main course consists of an enormous number of varied and tasty meats grilled on sticks, this is scarcely a problem. Dessert is either sticky Turkish pastries or an assortment of fruit; if you admit that it's someone's birthday, the fruit assortment comes with lit sparklers in.

They have interesting Turkish wine, though the bottles are quite expensive so probably best as one bottle among a group of the kind of people who like the idea of wine from Anatolia.

Fifteen to twenty pounds a head, with drinks and dessert.
