Perfect place to eat pilav+kavurma. Deserts are delicious. There is a car parking problem, but there are lots of parking business around Kalkanoglu.

It's rice and beans (there is also meat, but I asked for no meat). Also got some watery yogurty drink because other people were drinking it too. It was... More

There are two kinds of sauce you could choose,one is with meat and the other is with beans.You could choose one of them or... 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.
