This restaurant is fabulous! It is by far the best meal we have had since we came to San Juan. Our waiter was outstanding and suggested a wonderful lamb dish that was out of this world...Adana Kebab with garlic yogurt sauce on homemade pita bread. We can't wait to go back! Love the way the chef/owner talks to all diners.

We were greeted quickly and courtesely. Waited less then 5 minutes for a table. After that, it just got better. We were a party of 4, and we all had different entrees, and they were all cooked to perfection. Great flavors. This is a "do not miss" if in SanJuan

We went their with our two children ages 4 and 9. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The hummus and homemade Lavash was outstanding. We ordered two Lavash. Main courses were also great. So good we returned twice during our trip. We highly recommend this restaurant.
