Unless you are a vegetarian, this restaurant may not be a good place for eating. It serves a range of Turkish cousin, but all meat dishes are overly fatty and greasy, which suppresses the taste of the food. It does not serve dinner.

I tried this on a whim and was delighted. Top marks for the food and service, and pretty good value too. Upon arrival the waiter showed me to a window at the back of the restaurant to choose my food from the kitchen directly, rather than from the menu. Not knowing any Turkish I pointed out my choice - a... More

This restaurant is a nice place in the surrounding Ulus area and they serve delicious meat courses. But their prices are rocket high. You pay 11 TL for standard vegetable courses and 20 TL for meat courses. This is too much for a restaurant in Ulus.

This is a classic restaurant in Ankara, attracting over the years a varied clientelle (workers, academicians, lawyers, personalities of politics or star system). The dining-room has been re-decorated and expanded, but I must say I miss the atmosphere the older furniture was giving. I also don't appreciate much the TV screen on the wall (it plays footage concerning the restaurant... More

As far as I know it is a speciality in Ankara. Not a kebap or pizza house. It is a proper Turkish food restaurant with perfect deserts such as pumpkin desert.
