Farewell Tadim

Sorry to hear that the famous Tadim Turkish cafe in Camberwell Church Street has closed down, seemingly for good. A sign on the door suggests that it has been repossessed by the landlord. I've been going there for ten years or so, shame that it is no more. I'm glad that on my last visit in September I took some photographs of Serkan Ozer's fine murals in the back room. So long Tadim and thanks for the Imam Bayildi.

Tragic for such a popular and great caff to be bitten by the crisis. That's my only guess at why they had to close. RIP

Good pictures!

It is a shame, I used to enjoy Tadim but hadn't been there recently.

Yes shame, I'd only been once in the last year and it wasn't very busy. Others have said that the food wasn't as good as it used to be, not sure if that's true, but it might have got in that downward cycle where less people were spending money there, so they spent less on fresh ingredients etc. so food wasn't as good, so less people went...

eek, had no idea it's closed for good - it used to be our second 'studio' when i was at camberwell college of arts in the early noughties. shame and agree, hope it doesn't turn into yet another nail bar/loan shop/tesco express but saying that, i hope it doesn't become yet another 'superb exotic cuisine' restaurant few in camberwell can afford to eat in.

Food was great even in the last few weeks!

Love your articles and check out this site less often than I should but... (wince) "fewer people" - sorry, it's twice in one sentence that got me! (The spending "less on fresh ingredients" is fine.)
