Rehearsal Dinner in the Party Room

We were here for a wedding, and the rehearsal dinner happened to be at this Turkish Eatery. They have complimentary Valet Parking that you should definitely use. We couldn't pull up as all the slots were taken, and parking is limited around the place. You can park behind the restaurant which is... read more

It is an exotic place to eat in Cleveland Heights. The food is good. The service is not that great, even when they are not busy. I visit about once a year and that is enough. You just have to be willing to have a long lunch and not be in a rush.

Dinner here with family members while in the Cleveland area for Mother's Day. I have eaten here before and the Mediterranean dishes are very good. I had the Döner, a marinated mixture of lamb (95%) & beef (05%), cooked on a rotating spit, then thinly sliced. Known as Döner in Turkey, Shavarma in the Middle East, and Gyro in Greece,... More

We have been going to restaurant for years. However, there has been a noticeable drop and service and we will not return. After being seated, no one came to my wife and my table, with water or anything. There were numerous wait staff, going to tables to our left and right. Busboys were delivering water to other tables. WE waited... More

I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent fine dining quality yet moderately priced as are the drinks. Nice ambiance and good service.

Extensive menu, flavorful options. Service is always courteous and food is reasonably priced. Great little outdoor patio space when the weather cooperates.

Everything we tried (check pictures) was pretty good. Our server was nice and attentive to every need. It was a bit expensive but that's what you pay when you're at a Mediterranean halal restaurant. Would I go there again? Sure.

This place was pretty Turkish. Very extensive menu, and decently priced compared to other restaurants that serve halal food. The server was very attentive to our needs. We ordered plenty of appetizers. They were all good, but I recommend the cheese rolls. Salad was fresh and tasty. The kabab was juicy. The eskandar was lean and good. The stuffed cabbage... More

It may not be Istanbul but that's fine. You feel perfectly comfortable even if you don't know much about Turkish cuisine. The food is relatively simple but flavorful with large selections of lamb and chicken dishes, warm pita, friendly service in a relaxing understated atmosphere.

Always great food and great service at reasonable prices. No parking adjacent but they do have valet and public lots are a short walk. Well worth making the trip.
