This is not just another turkish eatry its beyond that, great ambiance close to breath taking river view and the food is marvelous. Do try the turkish breads with different yogurt dips and the sheesha is just there to set the mood right.

We were trully disappointed. There was 30+ of us and not one of us enjoyed it. The food was edible but definitely not restaurant standard. We got the banquet which was way overpriced for what you get.Not worth going at all. Staff was very nice and diligent though. I would never go back.

After reading a few of the reviews, I initially thought we may be making a mistake going here, but no, we didn't.

Had the lamb souvlaki which was very good but I didn’t not like the salad dressing. The apple tea is just a sad bag and didn’t taste like any apple tea I had in Turkey. The waiter didn’t speak great English so it was difficult to communicate but overall it was acceptable. The back area is a hookah bar (didn’t... More

Came down from Perth and met few old friends. Decided to come here. I ordered the kufta (minced meat). I am not sure if the chef actually cooked it. It costed some odd $26. The plate was a tomato dish with 1 piece of the kufta. To cut it short, food was horrible. The staff were ok.
