Authentic Turkish Food

My family is Turkish, but there's no Turkish restaurants where we live. So we always are trying to find Turkish restaurants when we travel. I'd recommend..... 1. sujuk pide ( sausage like cheese pizza) 2. Gozleme 3. The meze platter 4. Beyti kebab 5. Sutlac ( for dessert) If you try any of the... read more

Small place - great food. Wide variety. Service pretty good. They were understaffed when we were there. Popular place. Definitely get a bunch of everything and share.

I've traveled to Turkey a couple of times and I love this place! The cuisine is authentic and the wait staff is very nice! This is my go-to place when I am craving lamb chops. It is reasonably priced, located in the Tenderloin, and it's not high on atmosphere. If you are okay with all of that, you should try... More

An accidental find, I was visiting SF for a conference and my girlfriend and I walked into here ( she is a Vegan ) because it was close to our hotel. The atmosphere was friendly, the bill more than reasonable. While not haute cuisine (we didn't sniff the cork or sample the wine before drinking a very fine chianti, and... More

Some of the best Turkish Food I've had outside of Turkey. Everything was perfectly prepared and the tastes and presentations were absolutely authentic. The service was friendly and attentive; they didn't even laugh at my feeble attempts to remember my Turkish from 40 years ago. Not much on atmosphere, just a typical neighborhood place with great food.

On a recent trip to San Francisco, I stumbled on this nice little Turkish restaurant. Having been spoiled many years ago with awesome Turkish food in Alice Springs Australia, my expections were high. I ordered the Lamb Shish. The server brought out some pide bread to start the meal. The lamb was cooked perfectly and had the wonderful red bell... More

Authentic, colorful, no-frills Turkish food that I keep going back to over and over ! Don't go here for a nice setting and surrounding. In fact, this hole-in-the-wall eatery is in a rough area of SF downtown but the quality and authenticity is second to none. We discovered this place accidentally while driving in SF and have been back there... More

But this time at 8:30 on a Sunday was a letdown. They said hello and gave a menu and I ordered the special on the board, I... More
