“JUST EXCELLENT! YOU HAVE TO EAT THERE!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

If you'd like to have real food eperience that's where you should go.
The best restaurant in Konya. From food to the staff everything is perfect.
You must taste everything. You can order little bit of everything.

“Perfectly delicious food and flawless service.”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We walked from the Hilton Garden Inn (pass the cemetery!) to this restaurant on a cold and gloomy evening; and we are so glad that we made that trip. The staff is friendly and attentive; the food is delicious and cooked with a passion and respect for the traditional recipes; and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. We sat next to a local family who were enjoying the food as much as we were. We also noticed that the restaurant was receiving a special guest that night who arrived in a black sedan with the Turkish flags flying and bodyguards who stood guard at guard at the door while he dined. No idea who he was but clearly the food appealed to international travellers and locals of all classes. Not that you need the budget of someone who can afford bodyguards to dine here, because the prices are surprisingly affordable and well below the value of the superb dining experience. My only regret is that we were on a tour that stayed in Konya for one night only.

“Best Turkish food”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Finally, a place that serves authentic Turkish cuisine and following recipes dating back 1000 of years old as well.

Friendly and attentive service coupled with Sufi style dining (don't expect the usual lentil soup and grilled meat), makes this place our favourite so far.

Absolutely superb. The bill at the end was the cherry on top (great value).

“A wonderful discovery”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I was in Konya for one week in October for work at the university. My Turkish friends recommended this place and I am very glad they did! I tasted the best Turkish food ever, recipes from the past in a relaxed atmosphere and all the comfort of the 21st century. I warmly recommend this restaurant, not just for its cuisine but also for the welcoming hosts. The building itself is worth-seeing. An unforgettable experience!

“Great trip advisor advise”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Went here after reading the reviews in trip advisor, and glad we did. The food is very interesting and very different from anything else we have had in Turkey, this was probably our best meal yet. When you first sit down, they serve you a little glass of vinegar, honey and water, which turned out to be delicious. My husband had the pottery lamb, a slow cooked lamb stew like thing, made with figs, which was excellent. I had the chicken with apricots and nuts, which was a little dry, but had a very interesting flavor. We had the roasted pepper and walnut soup to start, which we both enjoyed very much
