There are two kinds of sauce you could choose,one is with meat and the other is... read more

Having read the reviews we found the restaurant at about 6.00 p.m. We had been travelling all day and were hungry. The restaurant had already closed for the night. It might be wonderful in the daytime; we don't know!

This is the best rice meal I have ever had. Try with drybean and meat. Also the good thing about the restaurant is they dont serve coke or other drinks. Only ayran and special composte. By the way, have pickle.

Despite of the fact that rice is not one of my fav meal, I had been to this restaurant as a guest of our Trabzon office.

It's the right place to eat Turkish pilaf (pilav) and dry bean (kurufasülye). And you should also try ayran. The place itself has a nice interior with an vintage look.
