Real Mediterranean cuisine.

It was a casual and relaxing meal on Friday's evening. From starters to main course with assorted choices available like grilled meats & vegetables, rice with meat skews and moussaka like cheesy dish, traditional wooden baked pizza......all foods served were good and delectable.

I together with my friends visited the place in search of a restuarant to try Turkish food and we were not disappointed. This is the best Turkish restuarant to try out. All the dishes were just splendid , we were spellbound with the taste. Must visit for person coming to Rotterdam. Very near to Rotterdam central.

We came because of the recommendations here. Very good decision. And to come back to an earlier review. The other three restaurants around were still empty when we left, while the Dunya Lokanta was fully busy. The food was great and portions a bit large if you're not very hungry. If you've no problem with hardly 15cm space between your... More

There are 4 restaurants on every corner of the quiet crossing and this one is the one I would not choose at all. But I read the good recommendations on tripadvisor so we walked in... And we had perfect dinner! Try grilled mix for sure. Food was excellent. The service was average. Good place to have a dinner. Better have... More

The restaurant is tucked away at an intersection, and until you go through those doors you don't realize what you've missed! The place is a little cramped, especially on the lower floor. Add to that the loads of patrons, you've got a mess. But when the food arrives, everything else become negligible. One of the best dinners I've had in... More

Had missed those oriental tastes & ambience & didn't expect to find it in Rotterdam. I'd gladly revisit

Definitely the best restaurant I've tried in Rotterdam or the Netherlands..the food is outstanding. The atmosphere is a bit cramped inside and the decor leaves something to be desired but you won't care as soon as you taste the amazing flavourful dishes. The price and value is also really excellent - it's one of the cheaper restaurants in town! Have... More

Just love the food here. Their meze is terrific and I always finish it all without realising that I have to keep some room for the main course: mixed grill. To be honest, I hardly eat meat but I make exceptions if I know that it is beautifully prepared and worth it to eat it. And at Dunya it is!... More

I had the mixed grill and that was good. I really enjoyed it. Then I debated having the baklava and wish I had decided not too. My baklava was soggy, not crip and crunchy the way I expected it to be. Baklava is one of my favorite desserts. I know a good baklava. This was not one of them. Would... More
