Came on spring break with friends, and the meal was delicious! Wanted to try traditional Turkish food, and got the kebab and it was very good. Staff is very fun and extremely hospitable. Would definitely come back!

We basically scarfed it down. I ordered the clay-pot dish. It was exciting to watch the clay-pot come out and opened by Apo. It is quite the show!... More
