“Great Turkish Restaurant”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

I had no information about this restaurant before visit and I think it was a very great choice.
I ordered what the staff recommended, which was kofte with cheese over it. It tasted better than the kofte I ate in Istanbul. The atmosphere was great.with a little dim light and there were some travelers who seemed to enjoy dinner. Also, there were Wi-Fi available, so I could use internet before leaving goreme. The staff was very nice and service was great too.

“Poor service and poor food”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The service was very poor, manners were definitely not on the menu.
Also the food was sub par, the rice was hard and stuck together and the potatoes were cold.
Wouldn't bother to make a second visit

“Great Food, Nice Atmosphere, and Decent Price”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We ate at this spot a couple times because we enjoyed the food so much. The menu offers several vegetarian options and the prices were very reasonable. A meal for two including drinks was around $25, plus it included dessert.

“Great Kefte, Uninspiring Testi Kebab”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

I ate the beef Testi kebab while the missus had the Kefte. The Testi kebab was alright. Eaten better in my three days in Goreme.

That said, the Kefte was delicious and I was tempted to get that instead but too late.

The Efes is cheap at 8 lira for a 500 ml bottle.

Service left a lot to be desired (although the previous night, when we walked by, the owner came up to us and chatted with us and was very friendly which was why we decided to go in the first place)

Not bad but not great either.

Thank Siddharth P

“A wonderful warm experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We were walking around goreime and it was very cold looking for a place to eat. The owner came out and started explaining the history of the place to us. He did not pressure us in any way to try the restaurant we walked on and eventually came back to try a meal. It was really a wonderful experience, Haroun was an exceptional host explaining the history of the region and about the traditions and the food we had eaten. They went out of their way to provide for our every need even rustling up a dish of chips which weren't on the menu. For me a true sign of excellence and customer service.
