I live in Almaty and I frequently go to Sancak. It is authentic home cooked Turkish food that is light-years better than the Kazakh variety, at least to my taste buds. It is even better to some of the food I have had in Turkey. The restaurant itself is nothing special, it looks like a big kitchy wedding venue with... More

This place offers fresh Turkish cuisine, especially recommendable for business lunch. Customers can select from a display of daily prepared classical Turkish dishes like Kofta, which either can be served like a kebab or with a variety of vegetable sides.

If you are after Turkish food than this is the right place. They have home made Turkish food as well as various kebabs, grills, pastries, lahmacuns etc. Generally suggested by the guests for lunch times... They close early in the evenings and they do not serve alcoholic drinks.

This place offers home-style Turkish food in addition to the typical kebabs, koftes, pides and lahmacuns. You order at the kitchen while looking over the day's offerings. Good food and service.
