We were in a different part of town and saw this place so we decided to give it a try for dinner. There were open containers to choose your meal from or a menu. Vern had the field greens and yogurt and soup with his stew, I chose lamb cutlets and got six nice pieces. We enjoyed the meals.

Imren is something of an institution in Cesme having been around since the late 50s, if I remember correctly. When you enter, check out the specials of the day immediately to your left - these are usually the best choice on the menu - but there is a full range of meats and kebabs available too.

It is a very centrally located traditional Turkish food restaurant which you may try undoubtedly. Do not expect fine dining or luxury but you will taste good food. The service is fast, prices are reasonable. Usually there is a wide variety of home cooked food alternatives.

Ok food but cheeky management and waiters charge hidden costs. Be careful and ask upfront what are you will be paying for the water they just automatically pour into your glasses, without even asking. We paid 11 try for a small bottle.

First off, the prices are a bit high for what you order in comparison with another restaurant offering similar "house cooked" meals (but they had already closed in the evening when we wanted to go (proof of good their food is, because they close when none is left)). The meals are very good, very authentic Turkish cuisine. A must if... More
