“Total disappointment”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

After 10 months of being in Shanghai this is the worst restaurant I've ever been to. Seriously. The food was terrible and the prices were high. I walked into the small (but stylish) second floor and I expected at LEAST a decent meal and I was completely let down.

I couldn't even call it Turkish food. The hummus was the absolute worse (I make hummus all the time and it's not a hard dish). It was flavorless! Just cold lumps of mashed chickpeas - could not taste any garlic, lemon, or tahini! It didn't even taste like chickpeas... might as well have been a lump of cold tofu. The dolmasi was decent but small in portion compared to the price. Our main dish was very uneventful ~ the chicken kebab. Just a few lumps of chicken, one slice of grilled tomato, and two slices of grilled pepper with a teacup size of rice. Boring. Even their presentation was ridiculous - there was no presentation! The Lahmacun (a flat bread with minced meat) was pitiful... the smallest portion of paper thin bread with a thin layer of...well... goo. It was more of a tomato paste with seasoning than a "minced meat". The only redeeming part of the meal was the homemade lemonade... but, 20 kuai for a teacup of lemonade was just not worth it.

My husband has lived here for a long time and he also says it's the worst meal he's had in Shanghai. This restaurant is a total joke. This is the first time I've left a place and actually seen my husband upset over the quality of food he was served. I can't believe anyone would like this place!

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Really enjoyed this cozy little spot. I particularly like the little one table terrace, which overlooks a typically lovely French Concession street. The food was very good and I particularly enjoyed the starters! Will definitely return!

“typical Mediterranean food with little bit pricey”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

It's located in quiet local small street. This restaurant is cozy and small. It's better to make reservation in advance. The taste is below my expectation against previous remarks in tripadvisor. Maybe it becomes well-known and good location. So it's little bit pricey (4 girls abt 100USD).

“Cozy restaurant, great value”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

You would almost walk passed it when walking on Nanchang Road, but definitely worth it to go to the second floor for a nice dinner. Many nice starters to choose from, but best is their mixed grill platter as a main :-)
