Great food, great value and great service! If you have a chance go here!
So on the recommendation of Trip Advisor we went to this restaurant the other night and it was fantastic! We got there probably around 8pm and it was packed, it is a very small little restaurant in what seems to be a more residential area of town. I was with a group of five and we were very lucky that they weren't more packed and that someone had just left so they could fit us all (it was a Sunday night, so I'm guessing on a Friday or Saturday we would have needed reservations). The atmosphere is very comfortable and cozy. All the windows have these candles burning that have so many layers of wax that you can no longer see the candle holders; I thought this was pretty neat.
Anyways, on to the food. So we all ordered main dishes, but we were super surprised when all these other dishes started coming out. Apparently, everyone gets a Nan like bread, olives, peppercinnes and a white dipping sauce (I'm not sure exactly what it was). Then our dishes came out and they were amazing. I got a lamb dish which was covered in a sauce mixture of apricots, raisins, gooseberries and figs. It was really good, but maybe a little too sweet for my taste, which was okay because my co-workers all ate some of it and like it. Another co-worker got the meat kebab and I tried that and thought it was the best out of the table. If I ever go back I will order that. Additionally, they brought us a shared pot of cooked vegetables that was excellent. After all was said and done we split the check and it was ~25 Euros for me (I had also split a half carafe of house red wine with one of my co-workers). I thought this was pretty good value considering how much food we got, the quality of the food and the attentive service. I definitely plan to go back to this restaurant if I can.
Oh for those who wonder if it is authentic, I'm not Turkish, but I did go to Istanbul a couple of years ago and from that experience I'd say it was.
