This is definitely not any kebab house, but real restaurant. When visited it was full house but they arranged us a table without reservations. 2 adults with 2 youngsters eat diner with less than 70 EUR. All food was tasty but not spicy.

We sat outdoors, but indoors is lovely, too. We spent forty-seven euros for three. Three main courses, one salad, a large bottle of water, one glass of wine. Traditional offerings, ample plates.

Attentive waiter, large portions that were tasty but not too spicy. Good range of beers and spirits. Sociable environment great for slow friends dining.

We ate at Ankara first night that we stayed in Ghent. Very popular and busy restaurant, we were lucky to get a table. Quite noisy and bustling, but very good value for money. Food very tasty and plentiful. It was also served promptly and was hot, which is a must for me. No complaints, would recommend. If you want somewhere... More

This is quite a big and very popular restaurant which serves turkish food in a way everybody seems to like. It is easy to find out what you want to eat, the pictures tell you exactly how your food will look like. The portions are huge and tasty and a kind of party-plate for couple of people seemed to be...

Huge portions but nothing particularly special. Service was efficient, there was a good atmosphere and the meal was cheap.

Very nice place and food. Reasonably priced. All I would say is if the menu added a explanation of what things were it would be perfect.

Always visit here twice during our Ghent stays. Huge portions of piping hot food ( most, if not all served with a good side salad). This restaurant is one of the few in Ghent that always seems to be busy. The staff are very helpful and the menu has accurate photos of all the dishes so its easy to order... More
