“Simply Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This place is located just off South Street in Philly so it's in the midst of a vibrant, active part of Philadelphia. My wife and I ordered the Turkish rolls as an appetizer which is feta cheese wrapped in a light pastry. For main courses I ordered lamb kabobs and my wife ordered some kind of chicken platter with several varieties of chicken. Both were served on a bed of rice and both were excellent. For desert, we got the Turkish version of flan, but I don't remember the name of it. The service was fantastic! All in all, a great experience and if there's time, we will make it back.

“Not suggest”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

This is my first review about any restaurant but i felt like i had to share my experience. Worst place i've ever went. We wait 50 mins to get our order and we even could't finish them. The owner was very polite when we first get in the restaurant however when we complain about the foods he was rude. Iskender and gyro was stale. Never go there again.

“No Burgers Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were walking South street hungery looking for more then burgers and fries. When we found this restaurant we were over the moon. What a find. The food was spicy, quality and value. The server suggested items for us and we followed his lead. We had one of the best meals on our trip. This is a go to place. You won't be disappointed. Just go and let the server order for you, you will be happy happy.

“Great Turkish food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We went there for dinner and had a really great time. The atmosphere is wonderful and cheerful with the Turkish music around. The staff were friendly and the place were clean. The food is so much delicious, I was so full to the extent that I could not order desert. Definitely recommend this place.
