We went there for dinner before a show in Boca and found the food to be worth the trip. It is found in the Somerset court next to TJ MAXX. It is located at the corner of Glades and Lyon. The food was great and service was great also. the food is served fresh and was the best authentic food... More

This used to be such a nice little place. No more. The food is so-so, but the owner is nightmare. There is a reason my friend and I were the only people there during the entire lunch period (11:40 to 1). There were 2 takeaways orders in that time also. While the sign said 11:00 to open, we arrived at... More

My wife and I were here on Saturday night before a show close by. This restaurant used to be a Rotelli's Pizza restaurant and it looked like they hadn't done much to change the interior. Few more things on the wall, but never felt I was in a middle eastern restaurant. Wife and I split the shepherds salad which was... More

We have had dinner here several times during our 'snow bird' months (Nov-Apr) each year. All of the foods here are quite enjoyable and from varied Mediterranean cultures. But the Turkish dishes are excellent. I particularly recommend the Lamb chops, Filo-Wrapped Tilapia and all of the salads. The Red Lentil soup is very good and served with Turkish bread.Be sure...

Inconsistent service and average middle east cuisine. Not a favorite. Located in strip mall setting. Free parking nearby.

We were seated immediately. The restaurant Vegas not full because of the bad weather but this place is a gem. The food is Turkish and the owner is the server. She is very honest. She told us the fish was frozen not fresh which we appreciated. We had lentil soup which was delicious. I has lamb stew with bulgar. My... More

We had just arrived on New Year's Day after three days on the road and were very tired and hungry. Efes Restaurant was nearby, and it was a godsend. The waitress was efficient getting my husband's wine and my iced tea shortly after we were seated. In fact, she moved us to a more stable table in a booth as... More

This was our 2nd, and last time dining at this restaurant. The food is good, and that is why we came back, but the management is very unprofessional. Our server (the same woman both times.... who I think may be an owner...) came and took our order where we were seated outside. After a long while, she came and took... More

Can't rate the food since the last two times I went - with family - we left when even water wasn't brought to the table after 10 minutes of waiting.
