“Was left with a sour taste”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

On arrival Hasir promised much. You are greeted with the sweet smell of a flaming grill, and pictures of the Berlin hoi polloi that line the walls are punctuated only by traditional Ottaman detailing.

However, following a lengthy wait, the food left me feeling bitterly disappointed. A small portion of under seasoned lamb pieces and a singular kofta style minced kebab were served with the most basic of salads - the sort of which you would expect with a three euro donner. When we had asked for dips, which arrived with only two mouthfuls of food left to consume, they tasted like the main ingredient was the cheap ground black pepper you find on the shelf of Morrisons. The bread could only be described as embarrassing.

I'm a big fan of Turkish food, and approach a meal with genuine excitement, but this left me as flat and deflated as the sorry excuse of bread. To add insult to injury, when I paid the waiter, he kept a 20% tip in his wallet before staring at me hard and saying 'ok?' Avoid like the plague.

“Not more than average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Nice wedge fries, too sweet a bread, greasy burgers, bad service.
Not worth the visit.

If, than only because of its location. Otherwise: average

“Decent Turkish food BUT lousy arogant service & pricy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

My last visit to Hasi was on a busy summer evening...there was sufficient hustle and bustle not to notice the service. However, on a winter's monday evening. There is nothing special about the genuinely Turkish food,, but there seems no one in charge to supervise the arrogant, moody condescending waiters. Never again !

“Very good original turkish cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The founder of this restaurant chain is the guy who "invented" the kebabs! Actually he just transformed a traditionnal turkish bbq into a takeaway meal and later created this restaurant chain to show to non-turkish people that there is more than what we call "kebabs" in turkish cuisine. So here you'll find the original kebabs - that means bbq meat served on a plate with a salad and bread. I went there several times, the food was always good. Try the lentil soup for starter, it is excellent.

“You should calculate the costs before you pay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

I think 2 waiters are playing with the costs. Anyway the food is good and you should ask for the total costs.
