I'm not a foodie but this food is unbelievable! The lamb was incredible, the eggplant sauce was insane, even the rice was next level amazing. Will definitely be back. Will definitely tell everyone I know.

Great quality, authentic Turkish food and amazing service. We really loved the staff. The eggplant dip is incredible and the mixed meat platter. Don't forget to experience the Turkish ice cream!

We had the five mixed dip platter to start off with followed by a chicken pide and mixed grill platter, definitely filled us up and was overall very tasty!
