Reasonably priced and great food!

Ate here last night on recommendation of Insight guide. Wasn't disappointed. Salads were very good and my lamb delicious. Friendly staff, clean and airy establishment.

Our extended family (6 adults, 3 children) ate here this evening, a family favorite. The waitstaff is particularly good with young children. There is an indoor play area for the young and the restless. Children get a flatbread with their name spelled with cumin seeds. Full menu, reasonable prices. We brought home a packet of uneaten leftovers to enjoy tomorrow.... More

I have been to this place many times during 90s - and also in the recent years. My impression is that this place has kind of lost its authenticity. The service is good. People are friendly - and the restaurant is clean. However, the food is at best "average". Same food you can find elsewhere much cheaper. Further, they serve... More

Really good place to try some traditional turkish food in a nice (but not pretentious) setting, with good service at a very reasonable price. We (3 people) each had 3 courses with soft drinks and coffee for 150 TL. Especially nice meat pizza and mixed grill platter. Very close to Hilton and apparently also pleasant in summer when the mai... More

I love this restaurant, its menu includes various kind of food options. You can eat delicious kebap and traditional Turkish food in this restaurant. I went this restaurant since I was a child. It maintains its good quality. It is a big restaurant and you can go there with your family and crowded groups. Ottoman culture rules in this restaurant... More

I enjoyed a meal here last week. It's a big restaurant with an excellent food menu. The food was beautifully presented and the service was attentive without being overbearing. If you visit, I recommend the Ezme salad to start! The food is not very authentic, there are better options in Ankara and there is no alcohol.

What an outstanding place. The food and the service was excellent. Even though the price was reasonable, we received with our meal at no additional cost, bread, an appetizer, fresh fruit and nuts , and a glass of sage tea. This is a must stop for lunch or dinner when in Ankara.
