“Excellent, excellent, excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It looks like the cafe in a 1970's small town hockey rink. But, the food, the service, and the care put into the experience are just awesome. The food is delicious, and high value for the dollar. The Raki is poured quickly when your glass is empty, and the staff are just excellent. Great job!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Excellent food, the place is in a strip mall in Orleans (Ottawa), but the food is excellent, and very often served by the owner himself. He and his wife are always at the restaurant, the food is constantly good, fresh and plenty.

“What a gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

From the moment you walk through the door the staff give you a fantastic greeting. Decor might seem dated to some but it gives the atmosphere of a Turkish restaurant and is spotless. The service throughout was attentive but not intrusive. The head waiter was comical and was a joy even with a 3 year old child at the table. Now to the food, omg it was fantastic. There were 11 of us for a 30th Anniversary, this is one of the first times nobody complained about the food. To top it all prices were seriously better than reasonable. I'd recommend this to anyone and I will be going back soon. Loved it.

“FAMILY GET TOGETHER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We always come here when we visit relatives in Orleans. Friendly staff and wonderful food at a reasonable price. We didn't try any of the desserts as we are always too full. Would recommend that you make reservations if you have a large group as restaurant is small.

“authentic flavours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a little gem tucked away in a rather bleak strip mall. Wonderful fresh crisp salads, lightly dressed, perfectly prepared lamb chops, kebabs and unique desserts were truly Turkish. Service was attentive, friendly but not intrusive. Everything was freshly prepared and spiced to perfection. The restaurant is tiny so reservations for large groups is definitely recommended and seating can be a little tight. Prices are reasonable and good value for the food quality.
