Great food and great service - I highly recommend stopping by here for a meal. They offer fresh fish everyday as well as many different Turkish mezes. The atmosphere is warm and the owners actually individually welcome you. Recommended for groups of friend and family! A great place to take a working lunch meeting as well.
