I ate here because of the good reviews on tripadvisor but I was greatly disappointed. The food lacked flavor. It was also extremely overpriced even for Switzerland. I ordered Baklava at the end of the meal and it was about 2 inches x inches with no flavor for 9 chf! I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

This is one of the best places in Basel for Turkish food. Very nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. The place is somewhat hidden, behind the Barfuesserplatz. In the summer, very nice patio /Terrasse.

A very pleasant nice sized family-run restaurant off the beaten track. All the food was very tasty and freshly cooked. We had a starter, a good-size main course and 3 beers for a reasonable SFr55 each. Give it a try.

My husband and I ate here on Sept. 20 with a Swiss couple that had eaten here before. Because it was a Sunday night, there were not many restaurants open, so we decided to go for it. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay in Switzerland. It was busy but the wait staff never made us feel rushed and treated us like we were the only customers in the restaurant. They made excellent recommendations when we were unsure what we were ordering.The servings are large, so you can share and save money. But the best feature was a bottle of red wine from Turkey that surpassed many of the French and Swiss wines we had tasted. There is a nice outdoor patio as well as indoor seating. By all means try the Kelim.
