Delicious Turkish Food

This is the place to be if you want to have some authentic, flavourful, delicious Turkish food, it's my go-to place whenever I have visitors from outside of Turkey.

We went here for my birthday with my mum and my boyfriend. My boyfriend is Turkish. we were treated terribly. The service was awful, the food mediocre and at the end when the bill was presented to us they had added on two main courses which we hadn't even ordered let alone eaten. When my boyfriend queried this with the... More

Went with my wife and another couple who took us here, must say rather enjoyed the food we had. Authentic food so different to other places around. No prices on the menu so can't say whether it was value but would go again.

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.

Very large menu, every single one is so delicious. Meat is lamb and very high quality, fresh and very well cooked, spicy.. Definitely one of best restaurants in general. 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
