We over-nighted in Konya on our way to Antalya. Konya is definitely not a tourist town - it is strongly Muslim and quite conservative.

And the vegetable meze dish that we... More

Most people dining were locals. In fact when we first got there, a Group had just arrived. So we were requested to return after 20 minutes. Surely, the table was reserved, service was prompt and local food - meat ball, chicken and aubergine paste tasted great.

We have been at this restaurant upon recommendation from the Hich Hotel team during a one day stop in Konya. We were welcomed with a vinegar based drink. Surprising taste, but good. The dishes were explained in detail by the waiter and we could easily make the apppropriate choice. Nice presentation and very tasty food. Great mezze. Overall excellent experience,

We got delicious meze first, then unforgettable chicken rolls with dried apricots sauce and hazelnuts, so delicate and distinctive, and an excellent beef and dried apricots, among other main courses. A selections of... More

This restaurant is quite different from the standard traditional Turkish restaurants: it carries old recipes inspired to the dervish fair and the presentation is so different. The food is quite good. Our second waiter was a bit grumpy, so I gave the restaurant one star less

I found this restaurant by chance ( the only one to be opened during the 1st of may wich is a free day) and I brought there 2 turquish colleagues from Istanbul. The food is great with fine sophisticated mixtures of flavors. I've been told by my local colleagues that the plates served there were very rare and for some... More

We went there in ramadam time and we had no reservation. The restaurant was fully booked so the asked us to come back a litle later, because in ramadan time people eat quickly and then go away soon. When we came later they had set up a table with all kind of small eats like people eat in ramadan. Verry... More
