This restaurant would be considered a great Turkish restaurant anywhere, without having to add "considering that it is in Tokyo" or anything like that. It serves great Turkish food, period. If you are vegetarian or need to eat gluten-free, then this is certainly a place for you. If you are vegan, then it is NOT for you, as they use yogurt freely and quite successfully at that. Also the service was superb. If you are in Ginza, and looking for a special place, don't miss it.

The cuisine is truly eclectic and one-of-a-kind, the flavor and quality far superior to most other Turkish restaurants in Tokyo. The chef clearly has both skills and passion. The interior decor also will not disappoint, especially considering the neighborhood (rather rough and noisy). Highly recommended, overall, for these reasons. I'll repeat, the food is not to be missed! The staff and service, however, can be hit-or-miss. They are quite polite in general, but sometimes can become overwhelmed and then they are less attentive and quite forgetful.

Located close to the Ginza station, the restaurant is an authentic Turkish one with great ambience.
The restaurant offers advance bookings for a group.
They have a variety of food options and drink options including the Turkish wine.
A great place for a group gathering.

We go to this restaurant probably once every month and have always been satisfied with the tasty food and wine, Efes beer and the relaxed atmosphere.
The menu changes from time to time but the standards remain. Every dish we tried was very good. We can recommend this restaurant to everyone who likes Turkish cuisine and wants to have a casual dinner, for example after shopping in Ginza.
