Tiny Turkish restaurant, but the food is well worth it, if you can get a seat. The food is absolutely fenomenal and a real treat for the palate. Reservations are recommended, as the restaurant is tiny. But well worth it.

By far one of the most delicious menus in town! The owners are the nicest and most genuine people. One of our great local restaurants.

I had lunch with wife and friends recently. I got my usual Gyro platter (excellent). The Tahini sauce was just right and vegetables were fresh. The restaurant wasn't too crowded for this time of day--really like that. The owner/one of the owners came out and visited. Atmosphere was warm and friendly.

My second visit was as wonderful as my first...the celery root is my favorite appetizer, but everything I have tried has been amazing! They make you feel like an old friend or family...the owner remembered me even though it was over a month between visits because of travel. I had the gyro plate this time with side of roasted Brussel... More

This is the best restaurant in Lakeland, Florida and has the most friendly and dedicated owners. This is what dining out is supposed to be: a congregation of friends, loving hosts, and high quality food. Much thought and devotion is put into the preparation of meals, and it shows through on all levels. Berna, you are amazing! Happy birthday!! Much... More

A cute small restaurant with great home style Turkish cuisine. Large portions and visually appealing too. I am from Turkey and honestly I rarely find this quality of home cuisine there. The stuff is also very friendly.

We went there with my gf's family and before we arrived I was simply expecting a regular Turkish restaurant. However I was never mistaken this much in my life. This quaint, small restaurant is not only for eating amazing a variety of foods, but also you feel like you are eating with your family at home, not at a restaurant.... More
