After I waited for someone to finally seat me, I waited another 45 minutes for my food. It was average, but with a soda and tip it came to $22. It was the... More

Remarkably similar to Turkish restaurants I've eaten at in Turkey. Extensive menu with large helpings. Service a bit slow, considering few patrons at the time, but very pleasant waitress from the Ukraine.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have always been warmly greeted. The restaurant is not very big so be ready to get cozy. The food is really good, and this restaurant also received 2 thumbs up from my friends who grew up in Turkey. I have not had anything I did not like here. My favorite dish... More

I had a Turkish dumpling dish, my son had chicken. They both had nice sauces. The mezes were delicious, too!

We had a wonderful casual dinner date... Two of the meze choices for appetizer, the Mediterranean salads, and vegetable kabobs were delicious. The baked okra was satisfyingly comfortable
