Again another find just by wandering. It’s warm and inviting inside and you’ll be greeted with a smile. It was crowded but we were able to get in without a reservation. The food is delightful. Each bite a tasty morsel.

I had dinner here with some friends, it was nice but my expectations were higher. Moreover, it is a bit expensive and the portions are not so generous as you could find in other Turkish restaurants.

Food and venue is very nice.. Good service.. Just that the food is too spicy and they should have options for people who can't eat cpicy food..

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
