We only found this by asking some locals for directions, one of them (with daughter) then kindly walked us to the door about 5 minutes away through dark quiet streets. The building was old and inside quite picturesque but had many modern buildings around. We were greeted as friends and taken to a table in a whitewashed courtyard (unfortunately only... More

The meal started with a vinegar & honey drink which was Nicer than expected. With regards to the food: If you are a meat eater you will probably love it. They serve many unusual combinations of meats and dry fruits. My husband had the chicken with pine nuts and apricots and liked it, although he found the serve to be... More

Really interesting and unique flavours that may not be for everyone but you should try it once. After a couple of weeks of food in Turkey (which has been delicious) this place was different (yes, no tomato or peppers!). Recommend mixed meze for a great introduction. Very friendly and helpful service.

We over-nighted in Konya on our way to Antalya. Konya is definitely not a tourist town - it is strongly Muslim and quite conservative. Our hotel recommended this restaurant, and other reviews on Trip Advisor looked good. But quite frankly the food was a great disappointment - very bland and lacking in flavour. 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've been warmly welcomed by Ibrahim the manager late at night (we were the last customers) who explained throroughly the composition and the making of every dishes. 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.

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
