A nice Turkish restaurant with good quality food, lovely staff and great service. They also have a fantastic musician playing good old classics whit a twist with is amazing guitar solos. If there is anything to criticize, it is that it’s a bit expensive.

I, personally, am rather unfamiliar with Turkish cuisine. Nonetheless, the meal was very nice. It was interesting to explore new dishes. The atmosphere is very nice: the staff was very courteous and the furnishing was curious but still nice to look at.
