One of the BEST Turkish restaurant in Dubaï.. got the lamp shoulder 😋 the restaurant is a bit pricey but it worth it.

Not a restaurant for tourists but nice if you want to feel like a local. The menu is poor, yet if one feels like a kebab he will find everything he wants at very affordable prices. Food was tasty, and service acceptable. Expectedly, nothing fancy

I really don't know where the meat comes from. I don't think you should worry as standards are kept high & enforced in Dubai. Also the owners being of Persian origin will have the food 100% Halal. Enjoy your meal !
