The food is delicious, both vegetarian and non vegetarian. We also had tried several appetizers and all were very tasty..Dolmades, Hummas, Tabouleh and Falafel. They also have excellent desserts.

Went there for dinner with my cousin bro and his family ( with two kids ) . The service was very welcoming . True to the culture. The kids were comfortable. The food was served promptly. Ordered Kalamari. It was big and nicely cooked while retaining the freshness and the tenderness. The grilled fish was too huge to finish. Rice... More

The only good things are the service and the beer. Hummus was basic and moussaka was just bad: badly cooked, with too much potatoes and tasteless like an unfrozen one. Will not go back

Authentic Turkish cuisine in the heart of Silicon Valley. Service is great. Parking might be challenging on weekends.

Great waiters, good atmosphere and a nice location. The food is not great though. We went based on the ratings but were disappointed by the food.
