Being Turkish myself I was worried and had my doubts but it was incredible. Me and my friend ordered the Pastry rolls, eggplant and ocean trout to share followed by the iskender. All the dishes were freshly made and arrived well on time. My friend tried a Turkish beer Efes Pilsen and like it, while I went for a Pimms... More

We went to this restaurant with a group of Turkish girks who were desperate for some good iskender. The night didn't start off too well when our reserved table was the high chairs at the back and with two heavily pregnant women (one with twins) this was not going to work. The restaurant had trouble reseating our group so we... More

Good atmosphere but very low quality food and service! We had dinner last night and today I still feel sick and my partner feels the same. Poor quality bread and meat. I do not recommend it to my friends at all!

We had the banquet consisting of dips and olives with Turkish bread, spring rolls, stuffed mushrooms, a mixture of grilled meats with pilaf and salad coffee and dessert. Everything was delicious. I will definitely return and would highly recommend this restaurant. Overall a great night. Must try the baklava with ice-cream.

Located at Stall 98 at South Melbourne Market in Dorcas Street in South Melbourne, this is a great restaurant to enjoy Turkish food. There is a large menu but on certain nights they recommend you try the banquet! Open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday and dinner Wednesday to Saturday. We had a nine course degustation meal. The broad bean... More

We went here as a group of 6 people for dinner last weekend. At first we couldn't find the place! For some reason we were under the impression it was opposite south melbourne market. There's lots of parking nearby. The restaurant itself is quite small, so I suggest making a reservation to avoid disappointment. We had a very cosy corner... More

Was passing her at lunchtime on a Saturday after visiting the South Melbourne Market and noticed this lovely little restaurant. Menu was posted outside and looked really delicious so we stepped inside for a light lunch. Wait staff were friendly and helpful, huge menu, wanted to try it all. Started with the dips - fantastic flavours and beautifully presented, progressed... More
