Lovely and very popular restaurant. The smell inside was so delicious. They have a wonderful outdoor dining area as well that seems to just spill out of the restaurant. The lentil soup is to die for and the hummus was tasty. Watch out for the size of a glass of sangria, you sure get your money's worth. The service was... More

Middle East Ambiance in Condado Tourist Area including waiter's outfit. Food is very good and the price is right, considering high costs at Condado Area. Located in Ashford Avenue, but inside a Small Mall, so be careful with directions in order to avoid missing it.

This small middle eastern resteraunt left my whole family smiling. We were treated with great service and excellent food. We also had the option of indoor and outdoor seating. This resteraunt is located across for the Marriott and is a little hard to find but other then that I have nothing bad to say about it. It was a great... More

Everyone here was kicking back and relaxing. The little courtyard area is impromptu and charming. It's just far enough away from the street to forget you're on the strip. Lamb shish-kebabs highly recommended. Lamb was perfectly cooked and the rice was fresh. Flavors were authentic and worthy of restaurant food in Turkey. Proprietors on top of their game. It's not...

This is a highly and well reviewed restaurant for good reason. The food is delicious the service excellent. Its a bit hard to find as its behind a small strip center directly across from the Marriott Stellaris Hotel. There was a minimal wait and they have both indoor and outdoor seating.

What a surprise! Directly across from the Marriott and worth the 30 second walk! Really friendly staff with really good food. Took the waiter's recommendations and were not disappointed at all!

Being middle eastern, this food was extremely sub-par compared to what I know it should taste like. Small, hidden location, with funny hours. The lavash is probably the only thing that I remember. It is served straight out of the oven, piping hot and delicious. Thats about all. They are opening a hookah bar right next door, which may be... More

Walking in the neighborhood and used my tripadvisor app to see what was around and this place popped up. The staff is very friendly, the food very very good. We started out with the hummus and fresh baked bread & a salad. Then we got a chicken shish kabob dinner and a lamb shish kabob dinner. Both meals were excellent.... More

Fairly small restaurant across from Marriott Condado beach area right behind Starbucks serves surprisingly fresh, flavorful Turkish/Mediterranean food. Loved fresh lavash bread and baba ganoush, hummus, Chicken casserole with rice, chicken, vegetables served in a Wok. Kabobs were excellent too. Prices were moderate and if you are staying in the area, its worth eating here.
