“Good Food and the Bonus is Support to Local Women”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This quite plain restaurant has nothing fancy other than its delicious local food. It can accomodate up to 30 people utmost but the service is swift and the local dishes they serve are quite delicious, prices very reasonable. But what is more fascinating in this restaurant is that, it's part of a local initiative to empower women in the area. The organization lend money to local women so that they can open their own businesses and after a certain period of time, these women become the owner of the businesses they established with this financial support. During our lunch in this place, we met the lady owner who was cooking everything herself and knowing we indirectly supported her endeavour added a further satisfaction to our experience.

“wonderful tradtional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We were taken to this restaurant by friends and colleagues of a non-profit group we were visiting in Kars. We were especially eager to try regional food the last few days before Ramadan was to begin (when standard menus usually apply, we found). Unfortunately, I did not write down the names of the many delicious, unique foods we ate! However, many were vegetarian, which was a very pleasant change from typical chicken or beef standards, and there was nothing we didn't like! The atmosphere was fine, but nothing unique, hence "only" 4 stars. Highly recommended!
