“Overstated local taste”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We tried Somatci because of the review in Anadolu Jet magazine during our flight. Our expectation was to try local tastes in a good atmosphere..

The menu was not the best I have tried in my Konya visit. The soup was served close to cold, but the personel was informative and friendly.

he worst part of our experience was having to sit in a winter garden type of place which was actually cold in December. When we asked for a warmer place, we were informed that the current place was the only place that they served food. All in all, I would not suggest that you prioritise Somatci for a good lunch/dinner

“Cuisine typique de Konya/Typical cuisine from Konya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Accueil chaleureux, des plats aussi bons que beaux (testez l'artichaut, la soupe maison...), une salle ornée de peintures de derviches tourneurs et puis bien sûr Ibrahim qui assure un service de qualité, en plusieurs langues, teinté d'humour et de bons conseils. Menu avec prix. On recommande!
Warmful hosting, traditional meals, very tasty!(taste the artichoke, the house soup...) a front house well decorated with paintings of dervishes and of course Ibrahim who handles a high quality service in many languages, full of humour and advices. The menu shows the prices which is not the case everywhere! Great address! We recommend it!

“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We happened on this restaurant while looking for another and liked the look of it, so went in and had a wonderful meal. Roasted red pepper soup with walnuts, chicken with nuts and figs stuffed with walnuts and cream. There is no alcohol served in Konya, but they offered us many other options. Great warm service and lots of locals eating there.

“Something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

After a few days in Turkey and only having the usual döner/börek meals I eventually decided to try something different, so I headed for this place. The food reminded me more of the typical North African (mainly Moroccan) style food where meat and fruit get mixed. Apparently it dates back to the time of Mevlana and its Afghan / Persian influences. I would recommend the pottery kebab as the meat in there is really tender.
