“Amazing local Turkish food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is perfect for traditional Turkish food. It is run by two lovely Cappadocian woman who make you feel like you are in their home! There is no printed menu because they cook different meals everyday. You just go in and see what's on offer or ask for a bit of everything on a plate!
The food was the best I have had in Turkey- especially their soups. Yummy bread and free tea! I went there all three nights I stayed in Urgup.

“Amazing Manti!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The Manti was the best I had in Turkey, and I did try it in other restaurants - including some fancier places. It was so good that I went back a second night for it, and I sampled everything being served that night. All of it was fabulous, so I am very surprised to read 2 poor ratings here. It was a casual neighborhood cafe with food that tasted like grandmom made it. The staff were very friendly, and after watching the woman who runs/owns(?) the cafe preparing food, seating guests, taking orders, delivering food...it is clear she takes great pride in the food and service.

“Everybody's Turkish aunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The lady who runs this restaurant is amazing. She's the maitre d', cook and waitress all rolled into one. What you see is what you get, literally, and if she doesn't print menus it's not in order to scam, it's because she doesn't know what she'll be cooking next. That's how fresh everything is. Don't be deceived by the rustic appearance of it all (lady included): when we complimented her she specifically asked us to review her here ;o)

“Best manti in Turkey, great service, homemade food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We saw the "homemade food" sign and had to try the food - this was the best manti I have had in Turkey. It is a local version which is not stuffed and is served with thick yogurt. Amazing! We also had a mixed plate of the other daily offerings which were amazing as well. The beef just melted in your mouth. The cook/owner makes local, fresh and in season food so the menu varies daily.
