This was one of the best meals of our 10 day tour of Turkey. The setting is quite plain and homey. We had several mixed plates of the foods the owner had prepared for that day, plus a salad plate and a plate of her delicious tiny meat filled dumplings in a yogurt sauce drizzled with a chili oil.

First.. service was A+, very kind, welcoming and respectful staff. We (gf and I) really appreciate this from the start (hard to find in touristy places around turkey apparently). Second, the food was great, tasty, made right there behind the counter and with a home made taste, local food. Everything was delicious and very well priced, the way it should... More

Delicious food, the best we've had in Turkey! A family-run restaurant where the mum home cooks all meals and her family provides the service. All staff were welcoming and accommodating. There is no menu as the dishes change each day which is fantastic. You can get a mixed plate which has a bit of everything - it is a very... More

We found the restaurant while looking for local food to eat. We were pleasantly surprised that it was a family owned place and the whole family was there taking care of us. Everything was cooked by the mother who was happy to see we enjoyed her cooking. From the service to the food everything was great. This is must visit... More

feels just like you are eating at your home with mom cooking and her daughter serving and her grand daughter using crayons!!! But it doesn't compromise on the quality of food!! Me and my wife were personally brought here by a local shop owner when we asked him where can we eat good local food !!

This café cooks homecooked meals each day and you can choose from the selection to have a plate filled for 20TL. Second helpings are available at no extra cost! The food is good quality and the staff very friendly. We tried to return for a second visit but found they were closed - it was a Sunday.
