“Real original cypriot food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

In this restaurant you can still eat the real cypriot food. Cooked as a tradition by the mother of the family, you get all kind of traditional meze. Many times they differ as the seasons and therefor the local product are changing.
The warm family atmosphere adds to the feeling and makes your dinner or lunch onforgettable.
I am shore that if you come, you will come back manytimes. Food is excellent, service and prices are excellent to.

We went out of town for something different and were not disappointed. It was welcoming and all together a nice ambience. Food good with large meze selection. Recommended!

“Good food. Reasonable price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

I love the taste of Turkisk cuisine, and since we stayed at a hotel in the neighbourhood, we decided to give this restaurant a try. We went there for lunch and had the lunch menu: three couses with coffee for 9.90 £. For both starters and main course the choice was really big. The salads we chose as starters were actually small dips, so there was a kind of misunderstanding between us and the waiter, whose English wasn't too good. But everything tasted good, especially the lamb "Kofte". When I ordered an Efes beer at 3 £ it was a bottle of 250 ml, and a glass of house wine (large) cost 5.50 £. As dessert there was a choice between baklava and Turkish delight. Absolutely recommended, but we preferred the Belsize Kitchen, similarly priced, where we ate the next day.

“Perfect for several times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Searching for a pleasant dinner we found the Tasmahzen Restaurant, which is located in the center of Alsancak (just opposite of Cenap Restaurant). Welcome is really friendly and the atmosphere is family orientated. Starters (different kind of meze) are included and a good surprise because some are a cooked local specialty. Even a small desert and coffee are offered. All is served with great attention. We had been there twice, we confirm Tasmahzen is really a very nice place, we fully recommend this restaurant.

“Great Cypriot Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

This family run restaurant has great food and a cosy welcoming atmosphere. The lambs liver starter was the best I have tasted and the kebabs were succulent and flavoursome. The accompanying dishes were all equally delicious.
The evening we visited there was a large group of locals who the host ably entertained with his balalaika playing whilst their feast was served. We really felt we had glimpsed part of the real Cyprus!
This is a must visit restaurant if you are in the area
