“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

We have been eating in this Restaurant since it opened and yes the menu's in Gumbet are all very similar but here you get the Quality and the Quantity, the Food is delicious and all fresh!! Meals are always served with a complementary Pitta bread(flat bread)with garlic butter at no hidden charge with every Main dish meal!! The drinks are at good prices. The ambiance is great here and a no hassle free zone!! The Owners are a real Turkish delight to see on every visit,so polite and welcoming and the staff are very friendly. You must try the Sunflower. You will find it in the street behind magnific hotel by foot,as if heading upto bar street/the centre.

“The Sunflower the best restaurant in Gumbet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2010

Myself and my partner have been going to The Sunflower for 5 years now. The staff may change but the atmosphere and the service are still very high. The owner is a genuine 100% nice guy and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. A friend of ours was taken to a medical centre and Mehmet (the owner) and some of his staff helped us to find out which one she was at, and translated for us. He even went back to the medical centre at 0500 and waited to find out how she was. How many restaurant owners do you know who would do that for a customer? and he offered to pay the medical bill until she could get the funds transfered from the UK. He remembers everyone and is always happy to see you. I can't praise Mehmet, Ali (head barman) and their staff highly enough. They serve a varied menu and the food is always very good and not small portions either. If you are in Gumbet please give this restaurant a visit.

“Good Food And Friendly Owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2010

We have been going to Gumbet for 6 years and have visited this restaurant a number of times. Menu is very similar to a lot of restaurants in Gumbet.
The food is very good and the staff are very friendly but not over friendly will let you eat your dinner without asking you to dance. In the past year at approx 9.30pm the staff put on a dancing show so if you want to enjoy your dinner without taking part I recommend you eat before this.
The owner is the main reason we go back to this restaurant as his English and his manners are excellent and he always remembers who we are. Last year the chef had changed from previous years so food not as good and slightly more expensive than other restaurants but still good value.
