We went on a Tuesday for a late lunch and the dining room wasn't busy. The Imam Bayildi (Stuffed eggplant) was great. My wife had Guvec which was also tasty. We also ordered falafel and a Bosphorous salad. The dressing was light with plenty of...lemon to brighten the flavors. Also had my first Turkish beer, Efes pilsner.More

Wonderful ambiance with regionally appropriate decor, tight seating. We experienced excellent, kind service. The appetizer plate for 3 was enough for 6 I think. The entrees all exceeded our expectations. Will be back!!!!

The menu, atmosphere, and tastes remind me of many enjoyable meals during trips to Istanbul. This is a source of great authentic tastes and a treasure for anyone in the Indianapolis area who enjoys interesting food. The restaurant is easy to find with a relatively...central location. Inside the art and decor are true to the Turkish heritage. It is small and inviting with excellent food; definitely worth a visit if you enjoy a relaxing and comfortable dining experience!More

First time to try Turkish food and this restaurant and so glad that we did. We choose this restaurant based on the great reviews and it did not disappoint. We had the Adana Kebabs and the Sultan's delight. Both were excellent. Really impressed with how...the restaurant was decorated, felt like we transported to Turkey. Our server helped explain the menu options and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.More

We were supposed to be in Paris this week, but had to cancel due to COVID-19. On a staycation instead. Came here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. Everything was so yummy. I had a two course lunch special and chose the hummus...w/warm, soft homemade pita bread and the Guvec (veggie casserole/rice); my husband had the tomato soup and chicken kabab Adana. It was so good that I added a third course of baklava. The Turkish beer was also delicious. Definitely recommend this place!More

Utterly amazing! An explosion of warm tastes served in a cozy and beautiful environment. Think it may have been the owner who waited on us and he treated us like welcome guests in his home.

I have tried Turkish food wherever I travel. We are in Indianapolis and Googled Turkish food. This restaurant was beyond my expectations. I will eat here for the rest of time I am here. You will not be disappointed. Authentic Turkish owner and Chef. Beautiful...cozy atmosphere. Baklava, which I don't usually eat, as I don't like Walnuts, was given complementary and delicious! If Trip Advisor would allow 10 stars, I would give it!More

I eat here frequently and have never been disappointed. As a world traveler, eating international cuisine is a must in my life. When home in Indianapolis, this is the go to place for my taste buds. The food is consistently great. Always prepared fresh and...not some snobby overpriced locale, but authentic and great prices. I have a variety of dishes and they are all great. Since it is all made fresh, special orders are encouraged. I like the Lamb Mediterranean without mushrooms or the Eggplant or the Adana Kebob. You cannot go wrong. The sautéed veggies are cooked to they are warm and snap just right. A side of salad and a pudding makes it an ideal meal. I did not realize how good they were until the lockdown ended and I sat down yesterday for a reunion with my fav place in Indy.More

I am not Islamic so I do not know the rules for halal. I would recommend that you call the restaurant and ask them.
