Recommended by the hotel, rated well in this website but none of it makes sense. I feel the owners have gamed TripAdvisor to increase ranking. Flavourless, poorly presented uninspired food. Easily the worst meal I've had in my week in Turkey.

This restaurant came highly recommended from numerous sources though some negative reviews by Turkish reviewers were a forewarning. The restaurant's approach seemed intriguing with quotes to go with some of the dishes and no oil used. We ordered soup which I thought bland, artichoke which was hard and undercooked topped by spinach that reminded me of the frozen kind found... More

Highly recommended to us by the staff at the nearby brilliant Hich Hotel as an authentic and different style of old Turkish/Seljuq cuisine. This was by far the highlight meal of a 16-day trip through Turkey. A beautiful insight into cuisine before the colonisation of the New World, fascinating combinations of ingredients perfectly cooked and served by lovely staff. Every... More

So my great experience with this restaurant does not come from the food exactly thought the food was pretty creative and high quality. İ bought a wrong ticket and was very worried if İ could leave to Cappadocia that night. The waiter and the boss called for me even brought me to the bus office to change ticket for me... More

I recommend this Selçuk Rumi (Mevlana) "Fihi ma Fih" restaurant to everyone. All food items are unique in ingredient, presentation, taste and atmosphere. The staff (the 2-3 ladies in the kitchen, the waiters and the owner) are too friendly and helpful to be true. Try the mix-of-everything (appetizers, mini soups and main courses) so that you get all-in-one. Called "karışık"... More

The garson explained about the restaurant and its different old style food very well. They served our foods in the pot. They were very hospitable.

No spice (at all) food !!! Eat like a thousand years ago as Mevlana Dervishes ... totally different meal (delicate but tasteless as we are not used to it). Try the honey with vinegar drink , weird but I liked...

We were travelling with my wife in Konya and went to this restaurant at lunch time after the recomendation of our hotel's manager. Very interesting cuisine with different tastes that might not suit to evreyone. But if you like to discover new tastes it's the place to go! They serve a traditional "mevlevi" food. Service is very good and our... More

Konya is not an easy place in which to find decent restaurants (and expecting alcohol is unrealistic). Like others, we found no one else in this restaurant when we arrived but we needed to eat somewhere so we stayed. Pleased we did. There was a reasonable selection of Turkish dishes well explained by a most helpful waiter and competently prepared.... More
