What a surprise to find delicious and fresh Turkish meal in Escazú! Everything we had was freshly made:dolmas,hummus,pitas,shawarma and baklava.We enjoyed it so much we got more to take with us on the plane the next day, which they packed up securely for us. The service was excellent as well and the atmosphere was lovely ,despite being o a busy road , it was quite pleasant to sit outside in the evening.

We live in Costa Rica (originally from Europe) and miss our homeland a lot! We were so happy when this man has opened this tiny place in Escazu, Costa Rica. The owner is half Turkish half Romanian and definitely knows how to make a really good Mediterranean food. It includes species, cheese, sweets, Turkish tea and coffee. The staff is very friendly, the prices more than acceptable.

We are glad to have you as clients and look forward to your next visit. Since I'm also far away from my home country, I'm glad that our restaurant has become a meeting place for other foreigners from all over the world.

We finally stopped in to eat at this restaurant. Great location with 4 parking places in front and lots more in the back. We were greeted promptly. We started with the labnah which was wonderful! I had a Greek salad, and while simple the flavors were incredible! Really well done. My husband had the gourmet gyro which was HUGE and really tasty! I kept looking at the other diners food and it all looked amazing. We will definitely be back to try everything else. This place is totally on our list of favorite places in the area! The owner(?) was so friendly and helpful and provided amazing service. Can't wait to go back!
