Visited Ankara for lunch on my Europe tour with friends, best Turkish food by far. Excellent environment and very friendly staff. The best thing was that every dish had a special kick to it, which made it standout from other Turkish restaurants, looking forward to eat at Ankara again!

On an early evening November visit the place was not full, as predicted in many reviews, but did become busier as the night progressed. Restaurant was clean and with a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff helpful and polite. The menu was not in English but the accompanying pictures helped to establish the various dishes, and seem to specialise in 'meats'.... More

Really good value and generous portions. Tuna and Mixed grill were both very tasty and loads on the plate.

The service was excellent and the menu, while not translated to English, had pictures of each dish and was easy to follow. The calamari-borek... More

Around 7pm the place got crowded quickly so I can imagine things get slower then, consider yourself warned! My mom got a mixed grill which was super nice, with... More

Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We have been here a few times so far -- and will keep coming back. We had a 1/2 liter of wine, glass of kir, the chef's mezze plate and the mixed grill that we ordered for two people and could barely move afterwards. The lamb meat was so juicy, the spices were...
