“Excellent and interesting meal...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

One of our best meals in Turkey (and great value too!) Beautiful view out to the mosque and Mevlana museum. Staff couldn't speak a work of English and menu was all in Turkish but its all part of the fun....can;t for the life of me remember the name of the dessert we had but was probably the best in our time in Turkey...

“Simple Turkisk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went here due to its close location to our hotel - and the TA reviews. The place was mostly full of tourists, no doubt following the same reviews.

The menu was quite short and simple. The waiter was very helpful in explaining each dish. He was very keen for us to select the restaurants specialities. In the end it seemed like we compromised on slow cooked lamb and a lamb kebab, with side salad. The kebab was delicious - beautiful yoghurt sauce. The slow cooked lamb was a very tender piece of lamb, but had no sauce or spices. The usual Turkish coffee and Nescafe completed a satisfying, but unspectacular meal

The location is excellent. On a warm day/night you can sit on the terrace and look over the magnificent local mosque and Mevlana museum. Service is prompt and efficient.

Overall, a good place to have a simple, and moderately priced, Turkish dinner.

“Good Food/No Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Food & service excellent but the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol. The maître d was very experienced and helpful in advising us. It was a very popular restaurant and about 20 steps from the Hich Hotel

“Great view, good food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This restaurant was recommended in the 2010 Routard guide. We decided to go. Greeted by nice staff, we were offered a table on the terrace overlooking the Mevlana. Great view with the illuminations of the Tekke and the Selimiye mosque,.. and the rising moon.

The food was adequate to good, giving us the experience of local Konya dishes. Very reasonable cost. Of note: all our dishes, starters and main courses, were brought to the table at the same time; local custom?

“Great location, disappointing food”

Very nice setting, great view, menu & OK service, both available in English. Portions were small and food was not good.
