“Friendly service, nice ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

The restaurant offers very relaxed outdoor seating beneath a canopy of climbing vines. No sales pressure is applied to patrons. Three of us were hugely entertained by the warm and friendly service. The food was well-prepared and cost less than we expected. The taste, however, seemed bland to us. Perhaps the cook had tried to cater to what he thought we wanted instead of sticking to authentic flavours.

“Great food and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

We stopped in one night when there were not many other people out and about. Once we finished our excellent food, the server pulled up a chair and offered us some tea at no cost - like he offered everyone else that night. He brought the tea and sat at our table talking for about 30 minutes while we all drank. It was a great night and and we learned a lot about Turkey and the culture. He even gave us a tip on another restaurant to try the next night that served a specific dish.

“This is a great place underneath the...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2010 via mobile

This is a great place underneath the mulberry tree by the post office. It's packed with locals - which is always a good sign - and the service was friendly without being overly attentive. The tenderloin rolled with cheese was the star of the evening and the house kebab was excellent too.
