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

I together with my friends visited the place in search of a restuarant to try Turkish food and we were not disappointed. This is the best Turkish restuarant to try out. All the dishes were just splendid , we were spellbound with the taste. Must visit for person coming to Rotterdam. Very near to Rotterdam central.

We came because of the recommendations here. Very good decision. And to come back to an earlier review. The other three restaurants around were still empty when we left, while the Dunya Lokanta was fully busy. The food was great and portions a bit large if you're not very hungry. If you've no problem with hardly 15cm space between your... More

There are 4 restaurants on every corner of the quiet crossing and this one is the one I would not choose at all. But I read the good recommendations on tripadvisor so we walked in... And we had perfect dinner! Try grilled mix for sure. Food was excellent. The service was average. Good place to have a dinner. Better have... More

The restaurant is tucked away at an intersection, and until you go through those doors you don't realize what you've missed! The place is a little cramped, especially on the lower floor. Add to that the loads of patrons, you've got a mess. But when the food arrives, everything else become negligible. One of the best dinners I've had in... More
