“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This has very good turkish food. I enjoy coming here for its enviornment and good food. I usually get the beef stew- its my favorite. The service isnt the greatest though. Our waitress had no idea what was on the menu or what we were asking for, and they dont have baklava either.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Food is pretty good but the atmosphere is loud with periodic comedy shows. Tables outside are in the sand which is a nuisance.

“Really good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Went here in middle of the day, so less atmosphere than I would have liked, but the food was really good. Meze plate and kebab fantastic. Also had shisha and they just keep giving you more until you've had enough - good times.

“OK-ish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Food was OK but unspectacular. Good parking. Ambience nothing to write home about.

“Poor service, bad food when the main chef is off”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

If you go here on a Monday, the main chef is off and you'll get something that seems to have been based on the children's game of telephone (you know, the one where the message at the end is far different from the one at the beginning after it's been heard and re-told 20 times?). A friend was served the misto platter, which had 3 servings of hummus, as they ran out of at least two of the other dishes that were supposed to be served!

The service seems to be slow every day, and often gets orders wrong. But it is one of the few options for Mediterranean/Greek food and some of my friends seem to like the place, so I'll probably be back (if somewhat unwillingly).
