This restaurant saved our lives!! This is the best restaurant that I found in Cappadocia, the chef/owner is very nice and helpful. We had 3 meals there. Taste of real Korean food and the price is fair. Highly recommend..

My wife and I stopped by Evil Eye after reading over the menu outside. We're huge fans of Asian food and haven't found many good places in Turkey. Evil Eye is an exception. The owner spends 6 months out of every year living in South Korea, so he's very familiar with how to prepare the dishes. The tastes were excellent... More

Evil eye was a nice change from Turkish food. It came close to an Asian experience which made it a nice choice. The chef was sweet and very accommodating. I had kimchee cucumbers were very good. The corn salad was a lovely surprise as well as the roasted glazed peanuts. The burgogi was served on a bed of rice was... More

We were looking for some spicy food in Cappadocia and this restaurant met our needs, Recommended for those looking for more Asian, HOT food. The view from the restaurant is great too, we would eat here again if ever we are visiting these parts again.

After a short time in Goreme, you realize there are few options beside Kebobs, casseroles, lentil soup, clay pot etc., and pizza. Mustafa Yildiz knows this, so he offers the only Korean food in town. He's a smart man! The bibimbap will taste like heaven. The ramen looks pretty spicy. It's not fast service - when I was there, it... More

We were traveling Europe for a month and really wanted to have some good Asian food. We were so happy to find this restaurant in Cappadocia, we didn't expect to find any Asian food here! It's a nice cosy place, perhaps the only one open on the 2nd floor in the middle of town. They've both indoor and outdoor sitting.... More

The good Fairly delicious. (Kimchi stew, ramen, stone pot rice with beef) Reasonably priced. Terrace with a great view of Rosé Valley... Go at sunset, around 7 plus. I don't know why people think it's expensive. I've eaten Korean food in cities like Singapore and the prices there are worse. You should not be comparing it with prices in Korea.... More

We were craving something non-Turkish and decided to try Evil Eye for some Korean food. Unfortunately, service was terrible at this restaurant - despite having only two tables, we waited 20 minutes for the entrée, and much longer for the food. Do not order ramen - it's the instant kind, for a whopping 28 lira, and came out soggy!
