“Mediterranean Restaurant in Northboro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

What a great surprise, a Turkish take on Mediterranean food. Would you expect beet soup (they spell it Borsh) or a liver appetizer that was great. They have seven types of Kebabs, Russian style Manti, Turkish style Lamb Tandir, four wraps, three veggie dishes. Entres ranged from $9-14. Service was excellent. Its in a newly renovated building with free parking. Spacious and modern insides. Great place, I will be back.

“Delicious food/good atmosphere..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We loved the food here. The appetizer is yummy with pita bread and colored delicious mix couscous. We ordered the lentil soup which was excellent. We tried the Kafta Kebab and Chicken kebab. Both came in big portions with grilled vegetable and rice. I absolutely loved the sauce they gave with Kafta kebab. It was made out of beetroots. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The food comes out on time. Overall, if we get a chance, we will visit again.

“Great Turkish-Mediterranean Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We were excited to have a Turkish-Mediterranean restaurant close to home, and we were not disappointed. Good food, attentive service and nice owners. I had the Iskender and it was delicious... The mixed appetizer plate was very good too. I am hoping they will keep their standards high and establish themselves, as there are no other restaurants serving good and authentic Turkish food nearby!

“First and last visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We were excited to have a Mediterranean restaurant in our neighborhood and decided to visit it a few months after the opening.

I ordered their shrimp sauteed dish and my husband ordered a beef dish. My order needs to renamed to read "Sauteed vegetables with a few very tiny shrimps". I had to look deep in that bowl to find those tiny little shrimps. The rice that came with it was old and half way cooked.

My husband's beef was plentiful but very tough. We gave up and stop eating soon after we started. The waiter came to confirm that we were doing Ok. We said no and gave her the feedback.

A different employee came immediately with the check that we have not requested. We said that at lest we wanted to have a baclava. The baclava was not glorious, obviously made quite a few days ahead.

This night out was a big disappointment. We wished the manager had come and apologize which could have made us feel better and positioned us to give it another chance.

We wish this restaurant success in our neighborhood, please strive on quality and review your menu offerings.
