I stayed there during the storm the 13th of April for a few hours. The staff was all around extremely nice and the food was also great. I had the lamb kebab and the portions were generous, the sauce was not the best I've ever had but it was still alright. Definitely an above average kebab, with a good value.

We came with our daughter for lunch Sunday and ordered 2 main dishes and shared with the wee one, it was more than enough to all to be stuffed. Total price between 20-30 with baverage was really fair. Nice decorations and music.

I love Turkish food but it was an 'okay' dining experience unfortunately - the staff didn't seem to want to be there and it showed in the food.

I have been to this restaurant many times. My first visit was in 2015 and I think the team was completely changed in 2016! However, the foods are still tasty and delicious. In their new menu, they offer Turkish pizza that is great!

Went for lunch and ordered a pizza (on Turkish bread). Good portion with lots of topping and really flavoursome. Friendly service. Worth a visit.

I often buy my "pay day bought lunch" here rather than the similar one across the street as I am always delighted with the quality and presentation of the food and the fast Friendly service. The menu board has recently been refreshed and the decor is really atmospheric . Reasonable prices too

I thought the name was funny so I tried it out. They do a fantastic Falafel Kebab, it's big and doesn't cost the earth. They also have Baklava for take-out which I found irresistible. If you're peckish, passing or just waiting for someone/thing, give them a try. They also have a bar and you can sit out front and watch... More

One of my favorite Turkish restaurants in Tauranga. Nice food and friendly staff. Love that Turkish kind of atmosphere.
