Nice ambience and pleasant surroundings. The food was food too, although not outstanding. The genuine Turkish coffee packed a lunch in a good way. But the service left a great deal to be desired. When ordering from the meze, like tapas, you really have no idea what size the portions are so some guidance is helpful. Asking the waitress was... More

My family and I are here on Saturday evening, and we had fantastic food, wonderful service, and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food is authentic, real, and delish! My daughter enjoyed her Döner sandwich and my brother, boyfriend, and I split a number of cold and hot dishes. We will definitely be returning!

My wife and I enjoyed the Sultan Platter. The grilled meats were excellent, but the shrimp and salmon were especially good. We also enjoyed the appetizers as much if not more than the main entree. Our service was very nice as well and we enjoyed the ambiance.

This place is rated very high but I agree with a previous reviewer. The food is very average. It's a neat little spot on a hipster street. The servers were very nice. The food was bland. I started with Sigara Borek. Feta cheese & finely chopped parsley wrapped in filo paper then fried. Could have been anything inside for all... More

At first glance it's a hipster haven. Authentic dishes in a walkable area. I went during an 85 minute jury break and they couldn't seal the deal. 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
