OMG!!

Oh my this place is amazing! You can tell everything is homemade. The hummus is the best I've ever had! Wonderful chicken kabobs and stuffed grape leaves. I wish I lived closer to this fabulous restaurant!

I am not an expert on Turkish cuisine. However, we enjoy this place. The food is authentic and the staff helpful and professional. You can have Turkish tea with baklava here... and the baklava is outstanding. I think it better than what one buys at MADO in Istanbul. Recommended.

We had a mezzo platter which was excellent as well as some rolled cheese "cigars" that were tasty. The service is really excellent, it's friendly.

First of all, staff is very nice people. Right from entering the door till leaving everyone was cheerful and nice. We tried Falafel, Sigara Sticks,... More

Upon seeing the reviews about the quality of this turkish restaurant, I thought I would give it a try in a rare visit to this big box store area of the Triangle. While it had a lot to like about it, including the family atmosphere and staff, I found the food to be mediocre, with the highlight being the baharatli... More

Had dinner with dear friends, adults and children. We had their meze platter appetizer, a combo thing. Each of us had shish kebab, either beef, chicken, or mixed grill, served on bulgar with salad or tabouli. The food was really very good. It seemed very authentic. We got there at 5:00 pm on a Saturday to beat the crowds. By... More

We love this restaurant, they make you feel like family. Sometimes the service is slow don't expect a quick in and out. I love the yogurt kebabs, we always get the Mediterranean platter for an appetizer. The don't have a liquor license but you can bring in your own beer or wine.
