Everything is fresh, hot and nicely served. I definitely recommend the gyros, humus and the home made pitas. Mmm!

“The little turkish place that could”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

First off, just as the title suggests, this is a small place. Other than a few authentic-looking lamps and an assortment of Middle-Eastern trinkets, there doesn't seem to be any real decor going on. So be advised: if you are impressionable on the aesthetic side of things, you may be let down a bit.

However, the food and the service make this a memorable place. In my experience, when you have a small place with an owner who is passionate about food and service, there is a kind of magic that takes place that is quite hard to beat. To me, this is one of those places.

We had the hummus for starters. We noticed that it was served cold and that it was pinkish in color. I sense that they used pimiento morron (sweet red pepper) and the light texture suggests that they went light on the Tahini. The resulting flavor was rather sweet, as opposed to the usual acidic tones that are present due to the garlic and the lemon. It was delicious and quite refreshing. Easily one of the best hummus platters I've ever had.

The owner was also quite proud of his sangria. He mentioned cumin and cinnamon, so it sounded promising. I'm glad we walked from our hotel and that I did not have to drive, because the drink was definitely worth it. Very refreshing and tasty.

My wife had the chicken kebab with rice and salad. My eldest daughter had the Gozleme, the youngest had a lamb platter with rice and I had the Moussakka. Everything was to die for: well seasoned, well cooked, and well presented.

A word of caution is that, although the menu is simple and not pricey, it is easy to get carried away. We paid about $80 in all, which is not bad, but it is about 25% over our typical outing.
