We have driven past this restaurant many times, lamenting the demise of the one that was in it's place before, and finally decided to give it a try. It was a Friday evening and there was a saxophone player in the garden. When we walked in the door I almost turned around to leave, but we had heard the food was good and decided to stay plus the restaurant was full. The decor is shabby, not shabby chic, just shabby...they seem to have no idea who they are and seemed to have done everything from leftovers or garage sale finds.
The menu too was confused, it seems to be half regular American food and half Turkish. The waitress told us that they were trying to move more toward the Turkish cuisine, so we ordered from that side of the menu. The food was good, but not great. The eggplant salad was very tasty but also VERY garlicky, so much so that I couldn't finish it. Perhaps if it had come with more pita, I would have. My Adana kabobs were good, but nothing to rave about. They had a good flavor but could have been more tender and the vegetables were undercooked. My husband had a soup and two appetizers for his dinner. Again, all were good, but nothing that made us think, "Oh, we must come back!"
The upside, very reasonably priced with most entrees in the $8 to $12 range.
