“Beautifully-Presented, Bountiful Brunch Spread. Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015

Went here with a group of 12 for Brunch this past weekend. This place was a really fun. First of all, we sat in the section with traditional seating. Where you sit on low benchs, with tables basically at lap height. Most of our group really liked this, including myself, but it can be a bit of a pain if you are really tall. If that style of eating doesn't appeal, they also have a number of regular tables where guests can sit. The brunch was quite reasonable at 15,50 euros / person and included all the Turkish tea you could drink. I was first struck by the lovely presentation of the food. Everything looked super fresh and delicious. I tried a little bit of everything to begin with and there wasn't anything I didn't like. The woman working hard and making fresh samosas on the spot was a highlight. She made an assortment with some filled with cheese, spinach or a kind of potatoe puree. I also appreciated that most of the dishes had good flavor and some a slight kick but were far from too spicy or over-seasoned. Be aware though that other drinks, including still water, are not included and a glass of still water will set you back 3euros. I was a little surprised by that. We spent over three hours there and it was quite enjoyable. I would totally recommend this place to people who are looking for a unique brunch experience.

“Tasty, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Tasty food, and very friendly service.
However the wait in the evening on weekends is 1.5 hours to receive your order, even with a reservation. The portion sizes are quite small to begin with, and especially so when you consider the price you pay. Some orders were not right, and some elements from the dishes were forgotten. The very, very long wait, was disappointing.

“Interesting...but not a must...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Our group visited the Taverna Yol during a recent business trip to Stuttgart and surrounding areas. This is a favorite place to eat for our Director who was hosting the event.
Evidently, it is a Turkish custom to be uncomfortable while you eat, because we had to take our shoes off and sit on a padded but very low bench. Ok; I can deal with that.
Then we ordered a sample platter which took a very long time before it was served.
The main course was ordered, and again it took quite a while for the food to come out.
The food was unique and tasty, the service acceptable, but I'm don't believe this was a 'must see' place in all of Stuttgart.
If you have the time and desire to eat at an authentic Turkish restaurant and be slightly uncomfortable in the process, then this is your place.

“Good food slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Due to good reviews we decided to visit Yol after walking past it for over a year. The atmosphere is authentic and you can opt to sit at a low table on a couch. The vaitor was nice but when the place filled up behind us it seemed like they were a bit over their capacity. We had to wait 15 minutes to order another 15 for drinks after that they seemed to get a hang of it. The dishes were nicely presented and tasteful.
I recommend going there whe it is not quite so busy.
