“Brusque, no frills, and delicious”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We ate at this restaurant twice in our short stay in goreme. Not out of the shortage of good restaurants, but because the food is really that good.

It takes a while to get someone's attention and get your order, but the food is authentic and delicious.

Their turkish pizza is quite good (they have a really big bread-baking operation in the back and you will see locals buying bread by the basket-full in the mornings. We also had their pottery kebap with chicken and it was wonderful.

The prices were reasonable. You have to be assertive in getting the staff's attention when paying. Their outdoor seating is raised, and for the most part has fewer stray animal patrons than the other restaurants in the area where the patio seating is at ground level.

“Delicious cheap pizza”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had a very pleasant meal at Firin Express - the pizza is delicious and very cheap. We liked that they had more varieties than a lot of the other restaurants. Definitely definitely recommended!

“Great restaurant, lovely food!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

I don't normally review restaurants but I can only say that this was a discovery which the wife and I were pleased to have made early in our stay in Goreme. Great pizzas and you have to try the beef pottery - much better than the chicken just probably get the waiter to smash the pot ;)
Prices are OK and generally I felt we were getting a good deal. The atmosphere was nice and we can't fault the staff.
