Delicious food

If you are food lover & non-vegetarian, you must visit this place. You find delicious & traditional Turkish food. Atmosphere of the restaurant is electrifying.

Other TA reviews sent us here, and we thought we'd take a break from seafood at other places. The menu is nicely presented as a hard-covered book with artistic photos of dishes. Many had english translations, so we were able to avoid "neck meat" and other treasures. There are many lamb items, and I'm not a fan, but one of... More

everything we tried was really delicious but you have to be aware of the fact that the restaurant offers directly a preselected salad with some kind of pita bread and from the whole menu you can order just only a few dishes. At the end they offer dessert too but you have to keep in mind that it costs around... More

Good food but service and facilities were poor. We paid too much money, opened a special bottle of wine and served in a broken jar. Asked gently for another one, but brought one even more broken. Plates had broken tips. Things ridiculous for such an elite restaurant. Hopefully food was very delicious.

Place is an old historical Greek house. Has a big garden and could host hundreds of people at the same time without keeping them waiting long. Service is great, appetizers, all... More

Best meal in Izmir: novel starters, spring lamb, frothy ayran! You choose the meat, all the rest comes automatically. Lively clientele, largely Turkish. And a walkable neighborhood.
