“Excellent Food, Superb Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We ate here on a busy Saturday evening and at no time did the staff ever rush us! My guest had never had Turkish food before and this introduction was exceptional. From the warm pita and flat bread with dipping oil, to appetizers (we had the mixed mezes and an order of cigar borka), main dishes of Adano Kebab & Lamb Shish Kebab, to amazingly good baklava and Turkish coffee, all were prepared and presented with style and delishish. Even the Turkish wine was just superior. We dined for two and a half hours! The place is not large and reservations are highly recommended. This is not a place I would recommend bringing figgity children to. I will return numerous times.

“Fresh and authentic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Excellent service with a smile. This authentic gem downtown Hollywood provided a fresh Turkish ambiance while serving mouth-watering food. We ordered the mixed grill which was a selection of meats, rice and chicken for 2 people. I highly recommend this restaurant. At the end of our great meal they offered a complimentary Turkish tea. I really felt welcomed and hope to return one day!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I've been twice and find this the best and most authentic outside of Turkey. Plus, our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Not a bad thing to say. I'm from out of town (NY) and we have nothing this good at home.

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We went with a Turkish friend and he ordered everything for us. Wonderful flavours, decent size portions, great waiter. Excellent smoky flavour to the baba ghanouj. Loved the red peppers. It's a shame that we live in Canada as I could see this as a "go-to" place if it were in our neighbourhood. Worth a visit (or five!)
