“Good turkish food”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

First time was a good experience. The grilled calamari was delicious. The Lahmucen was light, tasty, and a perfect portion. You have outside seating on a nice day. Service was really nice, and I couldn't of been happier. The cuisine is more turkish than anything. I don't think it can be any other category of middle eastern cuisine.

Parking is a little tight, but open table reservations will tell you where to go.

Our Lahmacun and Grilled Calamari are becoming more and more popular. Thanks for posting the great photos. HAHA - Don't be surprised if you see them reposted on our Facebook! Please "Like us" on FB so you can receive all our latest news. By the way, our customers can park on the lower end of the Econo Lodge parking lot so that is an option if all the street parking is taken. FYI - after 6 pm you do not need to feed-the-meter on N.Westmoreland St. Hope to see you again soon. The patio is calling you!

“Very very good,,”

From the appetizers to the tasting menu, to the kids' dishes, to the warmth shown to me and my family from the kitchen and staff. Unbelievable and memorable experience. I look forward to returning with friends. A foodie's paradise...

“AMAZING....”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Great location, easy to find. Vegan? Meat lover? Stewy? Grilly? They have it all on the display, nice and freshly made. They don't have it? Ask them about what you need: they'll get you something to fill up your appetite and please your taste!

“The fabulous place..”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by our friend and she did not steer us wrong! It was excellent, very fresh and the customer service was the best I have ever had!! One of the owners showed us around and made recommendations on what to get, gave us several things on the house. The food and fresh bread was just wonderful. Everything melted in my mouth, I highly recommend this restaurant!! I will try to upload some pictures so you can see for yourself the fantastic looking food...
