Recep Usta is the restaurant in which you can taste a vast variety of delicious Turkish foods. The service is great and enjoyable as well. Because while you are dining, servants flying around your table like butterflies ornament the table with new tastes. The owner Recep Usta visits every table and asks for your opinion in general and be sure you are satisfied with everything. Be sure you give it a try.

I especially recommend this one for groups (particularly for foreign visitors). Very authentic food (like stuffed ribs) and coffee (very strong). A little bit on the expensive side but a nice choice for occasional visits.

Everytime I go there I stop thinking about the prices... I just eat eat eat without pause... At the end I feel about to explode... When the check comes I just ignore the amount... Because whatever it takes it definitely deserves!!!... These guys just solved the complexity of being a good restaurant...

What you should expect:
On house menu:
1- Pomegranate sauce salad (simple but delicious)
2- Inner meatballs (Içli köfte): Delicious meatballs with inner meat part covered with rice dough. (boiled) very delicious!
3- My favorite dried sour dolma: Risotto like mixture of cotton soft lamb's meat, rice, tomato and chili sauce placed within dried eggplant tissue and cooked. As I mentioned before my most favorite!

Main dishes:
All kinds of Kababs... But Recep Usta's specialty is ''Tava'' (pan grill)... First time I've been to Recep Usta's I tried 'kaburga dolma' (Filled Lmb's ribs).... Softest lamb's meat filled with the traditional seasoned rice and cooked in the special clay ovens called ''tandır''... Very delicious but could be a bit heavy meal since it's high fat content... but still delicious...
Then I tried the 'Tava' and used to order it for 2-3 years... And completely forgot about the Kababs... Since those last years I started to order assorted Kabab plate... The portion is for two persons... I always go there with my grandma and she can't eat too much ( but still exceeds her normal range), thus we could never finish the stuff on the plate... There are still many other dishes I haven't tried yet (in 8 years)...

After the main dishes here comes the desert:
1- The very successful wallnut baklawa, served warm, just out of the oven...
2- Semolina desert with traditional Maraş ice cream
and guess what... those are on house tooo... :)))
and I have to mention unlimited tea service....

After this kind of feast who would even think of the check?? Definitely not me because I already know the price range... It never ever exceeded 70 TL (50USD) for two persons...

Forget about the price... What is the most attractive side of that restaurant?!! In contrary to the most of the other Kabab houses in Turkey this restaurant seldom change it's service and food quality... And when it change it is definitely in a positive way, so that it becomes even more addictive... The only reason I don't go there very frequently is my progressively growing belly...

Oh I forgot to mention that it can serve for 600 persons at one time... Especially they do very very well during Ramadan...

Overall this is probably one of the top 5 Tava, Kaburga dolma and Kabab restaurants in whole Turkey...
