First thing you see when you enter: the bread baking woman who sits o a high platform. The restaurant has a very nice interior, friendly staff and excellent food. I had the day special, a complete meal for €8. They have an open kitchen and the charcoal grill is allways burning. The location is on walking distance from the back... More

I have a personal connections here because I started with my fiancee here. That night, we ordered and barely ate. Now, we spend every special occasion here and have the best meal that we can have. The price is good, especially considering portions and quality.

Yesterday on my visit to my city of birth we went for dinner in a for me new Restaurant, Dunya Locanta. Centrally located behind the Central Station, this is a Turkish/Mesopotamisch restaurant. You walk in and you immediately feel at home. Large open kitchen on the right, warm atmosphere and everywhere nooks and crannies where people can sit. We ordered... More

Nice and cozy restaurant serving delicious and vibrant platter. we had ordered a vegetarian rice meal for 2 and the portion size was huge for us ! we particularly liked the pink yogurt sauce and aubergine-garlic sauce served as accompaniments to the cold starter. The flat bread served as one of the starter items was freshly made and tasted outstanding.... More

We ordered a rice meal for 2 (20€ each, there were cheaper options also). We werent able to finish it (maybe because the waiting time between the cold and hot dishes was long and We lost some apetite). Our favorite dishes were: the purple yogurt dish 👌🏼, and the aubergine dish. The flat bread was freshly made and delicious. Definitely... More

Really good everything, from the quality of service to the food served. You should try an assortment of the mezes/starters. They are really delicious!

Dunya Restaurant is like a hidden gem behind the Rotterdam Centraal station. The amazing Anatolian & Mesopotamian food will make you very happy. The cosy atmosphere of the restaurant is also very enjoyable. There is a nice variety of dishes that you can enjoy. And also you should try the delicious mezes as starter.

Small restaurant where every foot of space is used. Tables are close together. Food is mesopotamic and anatolic. Choice is very large. Meat is prepared on charcoal fire, very tasty. Waiting staff is friendly and efficient. Been here several times and never disappointed !

It was a casual and relaxing meal on Friday's evening. From starters to main course with assorted choices available like grilled meats & vegetables, rice with meat skews and moussaka like cheesy dish, traditional wooden baked pizza......all foods served were good and delectable. I personally like the creativeness use for their feta cheese and foods made with heartfelt sincerity taste... More
