Christmas lunch.. make sure you advise more than once of any other meal options

Booked Christmas lunch 4 weeks ago which was the set menu. I advised 2 vegetarians. I called the same day to confirm this and once again advised two vegetarian meals. The third course arrives, and once again I advised we also have two vegetarian meals. The waiter was stunned and advised 'we... read more

I ordered my food (salad) at 11.45am before the big lunch boom. Waited until 12.20pm to check the order with one of the waiters who didn't acknowledge my tables existence. Food came out at 12.25pm with the wrong ingredients inside, missing several things that stated was in the salad on the menu. My friends burgers had stale bread and their... More

A big 7 course meal for $30, plus drinks and coffee....Turkish and home made, tasty and authentic (according to the Turkish friends who came too). Its on the outside of the South Melbourne market and definitely worth a visit one Wednesday evening for this banquet option.

I've been here with work colleagues and it was ideal, lovely atmosphere and the food is really good if you want to share or you have people in your party who have dietary requirements. Great friendly service and affordable, I'll definitely be back!

A super way to enjoy a brunch on the entry to the South Melbourne market. A traditional Turkish woman called to us from her curbside grill, seemingly so confident in her food, we had to trust and were not disappointed., she certainly knows her breads. We tried her hot vegi and mushroom stuffed bread. She cut it into finger sized... More

We had the seven course banquet and at one stage we were worried we weren't getting enough food , but by the end of it we could hardly move! The dips were amazing, raki cured ocean trout was delicious and my favourite were the Turkish spring rolls. We wanted to try somewhere different and this was a great choice. Staff... More

Went with group of friends for a dinner out in Melbourne and ordered platters share! Food was sensational..... loved the chilli and eggplant dips! The oven baked stuffed mushroom and eggplants were the best! Good value for money, great friendly service. Would definitely visit again!

Years of consuming Turkish fare (outside of Turkey) has set your mind to notions of what they are to be. I enjoy the weekend strolls at South Melbourne market and it was by chance while walking by, I decided to have my late lunch. I was not disappointed. In fact, when I ordered my food (meatball), I had visions of... More

I had turkish food before and this place I am afraid is bellow average! . The service was great ,we chose the grilled meat plater , the lamb was tough, the kofte /minced meat had one spice that overpowered the rest and was too spicy for the children. I note my children love this type of cuisine but not this... More
