Baklava is best in the world!!! Everything absolutely amazing!

Probably some of the BEST food I've ever had in my 23 years of life!!! If you are in Puerto Rico you must go here. DO NOT leave Puerto Rico without eating here. Make sure to have the Baklava! It is the world's best, and I usually am not a big fan of baklava because it is hard to get... read more

Friendly service, true Turkish ambiance, but the food is to die for. I have been a customer for a couple years now and every time is even more amazing that the last.

I was happy to find other than Puerto Rican food in Puerto Rico. I ordered Dolma, Falafel and Iskender Kabob; all of them were very good but the best for me was the warm bread that was came with the order. I also had Turkish coffee and it was pretty good. It is across The Marriott Hotel so try it... More

So we've been here 4 years ago and it was amazing. This time, 4 years later, it was awful. We had terrible service after we received our food and the food was awful. It had no spices at all and it was so bland. We all wished there was a close by McDonalds. Honestly don't waste your time especially if... More

Can not recommend. The food was bland and way overpriced. No one in our group was satisfied with our meal.

The place is designed in traditional arabic-ottoman style however the music was generally greek??!! The food was tasty especially meze appetizers and kebabs (as usual). If it is not hot better sitting outside because inside is very small space between tables. The personnel is very friendly and service is fast. Tables are too small for 4 people and you barely...

Food was good, presentation was good also. Nice outside seating area. They have this type of fountain that makes a very calming sound. Definitely would come back. My server was viviana, very sweet girl and attentive.

It started off great with attentive service and the food arrived within 35minutes. Food was presented well but did not have much flavor. The waiter disappeared and the other said maybe he was no break? No water or drink refills. A bit overpriced as others have mentioned and I come from Brooklyn where we get real Mediterranean favors for half... More
