..I really like how unique this place is and that it is really small, it's really good quite place if you just want to relax. The owner is really friendly and the food is pretty good with a wide selection.

We happened across this restaurant while in the neighborhood. It may be small, but the food is very flavorful, the service was excellent and the owner and wait staff very friendly. I had the Spicy Chipotle Chicken which was served with rice and a small house salad and my wife had the Chicken Nigella with rice and a salad. My... More

I've fallen in love. A friend brought me to this tiny restaurant for dinner on a Saturday night, and the place was hopping. Since then, I've shown it to friends because I want everyone to know about this gem. Temple Terrace has few non-chain places. There are about 7 or 8 tables inside, two outside. (They've done their best to... More

You won't be overwhelmed by the size but you will be by the food. This is a small place with good middle eastern food. I had the gyro plate, very good. Service was very friendly. We plan on returning.

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon after visiting MOSI. It is a small cafe with close tables, but the food was delicious. We had the traditional Turkish dishes. We will come again when we are in the area.

My daughters and I found this place on a break between adventure island and Busch gardens today. We had a couple dips with pita,some lentil soup, chicken pasta, a wrap and a Greek salad. Everything was made from scratch with some items even being organic. The lentil soup was the best I ever had. The man running the place told... More

I usually order the Greek salad. I like to switch it up between chicken or shrimp. It's by far the most delicious I've ever had. The owner, Martin, is so nice! He makes sure your food is to your satisfactory. I was informed by him that he's Turkish and the food is a mixture of that and Greek. I haven't... More

In the midst of the chain food restaurants on E. Fowler Ave is a gem tucked in a small strip shopping mall. We stumbled on Tazza on a recent trip to Bush Gardens. Everything is homemade and the food was excellent. We liked it so much we went back a second time during our 4 days in Tampa. So if... More
