Average at best .... Went there based on reviews, a little difficult to find Turkish food but have definitely had much better at other locations ... Apricot chicken was not clear that it was thigh meat which I am not a fan of Appetizers are below average Service and atmosphere meh at best Overall not worth your time

Four of us have been traveling in Turkey for ten days. It is the worst restaurant we've been. Too much oil in salad. The kebab has nothing to eat. So does the lamb and beef. However, it is soooo expensive. DO NOT step into this restaurant !!!! 负分!!差评!! 这家店是我们十天土耳其之行最差的一餐,没有之一!

Absolutely wonderful experience. As we sat down, the host asked us where we're from (NYC), then explained the history of the restaurant and style of food (why dishes use figs, almonds, butter, etc). From there, we just went with his recommendations for the best dishes - three appetizers (green beans, stuffed artichoke and grape leaves) and one main dish (pottery... More

Somatci was the greatest restaurant experience we had in our 10 days trip in Tourkey. Authentic food, nice performance and very friendly staff. The prices are resonable. I strongly recommentded.

Although the locals dont prefer Somatci for reasons I dont know, when I had a layover at Konya I decided to visit this place given very good reviews on Tripadvisor. I must admit the reviews are precise, the food was very original and tasty, and the staff was made of people who love their jobs and always trying to get... More

In one word: Disgusting. I cannot understand how anyone could give this place more than the minimum rating. My wife and I have been traveling through Turkey for the last two weeks, and have loved nearly every meal. This was the worst meal we've had by far. It was basically inedible. The Cacik was tasteless and greasy. The roasted eggplant... More

We tried this restaurant and found good service, well done dishes in a reasonably decorated place. It's probably because we missed the subtleties of the local food but we weren't moved by the result. Probably the best place to try this type of food...

We went there with a group of five people. Very nice atmosphere and decoration as an old authentic building. Most of the restaurants close very early but thanks to them they waited us until we eat to close the restaurant and go home, we were the only ones in the restaurant eating as it was after 10 pm. Their menu... More
