Ate here three times and loved it. Warmly welcomed back the second and third times. Food excellent, service excellent. Great location on a busy street so sitting by the open windows able to watch life go by.

Prices are very reasonable and similar to what you might pay almost anywhere in Van or eastern Turkey generally yet the customer service and attention to detail is superb. Lovely to eat here in the evening. The menu is quite comprehensive including local fish.

There is very good Kurdish/Turkish food here. The ayran, lahmacun, and kebap were very very good. There is a nice view of the main bazaar streets from where I was sitting.

We really liked the Kervansaray restaurant. It is located on 1st floor. The kebap and Ali Nazik were very good so are the mezze to start. Staff speaks little english but that wasn't a problem, they were friendly. Total cost was 35 TRY all drinks and cay included. Would definitely go back.

I ve been there for 2 dinners and both of them was excellent. Service, staff, cleanness, variety, taste, prices everything was satisfied me. Specially meat dishes are one of the best I ever ate. Complimentary dishes were also delicious and in numbers. Abagannus was my favorite kebab.

This restaurant is at first floor level accessed through a very nondescript flight of stairs.....don't be put off! The food is very good indeed; standard fare for the area but best in class and very large portions at a highly reasonable price.
