This is the best tantuni we had in town. Delicious, not a heavy greasy taste, hot and spicy enough. Service was good and fast. I had two portions, my husband had four :) I also should mention that it was not expensive

I was in a resort near mersin, and after reading reviews i decided to have lunch in the restaurant with the family. I like tantoni and i think i had very high expectations after reading reviews. First, the map is not correct, there is more than 20 minute walk between the map address and the actual one. Second, yes tantoni... More

Tantuni was a dish for poor people like tapas in Spain. Now it is a taste from Mersin. It is normally spicy. So do ask for non-spicy one if you don't like spicy.

Tantuni is not my typical food. I've eaten couple places in Mersin before. This time we've tried Memos Tantuni. I can honestly say that better. We have 10+ ppl and they served very quickly. Taste is good. A bit far from center.

Obviously, the best tantuni I have ever eaten. You cannot find this amount of meat in tantuni in any place! Deligious! And lucky me, they have one more shop in Istanbul.

It is a traditional meal of Mersin. It is very delicious I recommend especially biftek, the staff are also kind. I think it is the best place in Mersin to eat tantuni.

Memos Tantuni is a classic place where you can find traditional Tantuni place. You will only know difference when you eat in any other place. Even local people just go there to eat Tantuni in Memos. These brothers opened a new branch in Istanbul and everyone says it's best ever. I truly recommend this food and Memos Tantuni. It's a... More
