As soon as I entered, I felt uplifted: so beautiful and spotless. The authentic Turkish dishes are outstanding: kabob, baklava, cacik. And the tomato soup, with so many ingredients, was the best I've had anywhere!

Had lunch here with several friends. The food was fresh and portions just the right size for lunch. Opted for the lamb kabobs which comes with rice and salad. It was delicious. Service was good. Olives and bread provided while waiting for the main course. The restaurant is light and provides for a quiet lunch place so that you can... More

My first time, but my friend thought I would like it & I very much enjoyed the food and subdued Mediterranean decor & choices of entrees. I ordered the cabbage dolmas with lentil soup. My friend, steak with cream zucchini soup. Very good portions were served & carried home. The wine selection was short, but we had a beautiful Rhone.... More

The ingredients were good and fresh, but the portions were tiny- a small pita slice with a dollop of humus and eggplant that could be consumed in 3 or 4 bites.

Our favorite restaurant in the bay area. Pleasant and quiet atmosphere where you can take your friends and talk with them. Great Mediterranean cuisine with first class imported turkish olive oil. I recommend the eggplant dish and the balaclava. House white wine was superb (argentine). The owner is the cook and a gem.

Nice variety on the menu, something new for everyone. Wine list is small but "specials" are very special.

The food is great and there is enough variety to please every one. The Turkish dihes are not traditional but very interesting and delicious. The wine list is limited. But for the price it is the best value in the Bay Area. I love this place for entertaining friends because the food is good and different and you don't need... More

If you like hummus without garlic, you've found your place. Like salt? Go elsewhere. The food was very dissapointing.
