I went there with my wife and we both loved it. Every dish we tried was great. The place was packed although it was still quite early. Highly recommended.

What a joy! The food of the Turkish kitchen with a Spanish redwine, a nice and warm atmosphere, polite and smiley waiters (most if them), made this a good evening after all. It was raining cats and dogs, but we forgot. Thanks a lot!
