Sat on the floor and had authentic Turkish cuisine. Very fairly priced with a good selection. Service was good as well.

Went with friends after reviewing their online menu and saw lots of vegetarian options. First - online menu doesn't match their actual menu. Once there we realized that their vegetarian options are mostly one thing give or take a few ingredients. That one thing is a pot of veggie mush in tomato sauce. Green beans, peas, potatoes, onions, & zucchini... More

We had read good things about this restaurant and choose from the menu rather than the extensive buffet with lots of vegetarian offerings. My friend had Mediterranean Mushroom and was most satisfied. I had a great favorite of mine: Dolma. Alas, the filling was almost flavorless, although the tomato sauce was savory, and the grape leaves were exceedingly tough. The... More

A quaint dining experience with fantastic food. The wait staff are polite and professional which is sometimes absent in college town establishments. My wife and I eat here a few times annually. It is consistently a top quality eatery. We do so enjoy the ability to dine in the patio area, weather permitting. The people watching alone is worth the... More

This was my second visit here, this time for lunch. It has a very welcoming environment and the food is varied and delicious. The lunch buffet offered many choices, including a delightful sweet carrot dish, and was very reasonably priced. The butter chicken was so tender and the veggie lasagna was excellent. This Turkish restaurant is a gem among Bloomington's... More

Bloomington is home to many ethnic restaurants. My personal favorite is tucked away in an older house on 4th Street. It is small but has a lot of charm. Their lunch buffet offers a wide variety of Turkish dishes, hot and cold. They have something for everyone to enjoy. The owner and staff are very friendly also. Support this local... More

It is a great place! I walked right past as I wondered if there would be many choices in a buffet. Family member decided to go in and check it out. AMAZING! So many choices. The Russian potato salad was out of this world. Too many choices. You can sit on pillows and watch the world go by. 8.55 if... More

Their lentil soup (complementary to most dishes) is quite good, as well as their tea. Overall, food is nice and service is quite kind and fast

We had a beautiful spring dinner on the deck. There was so much food for the money! They served Turkish tea free with the meal--very delicious. I got moussaka, and it came with rice, salad, tea and bread. It was not the type that I was used to, and I actually liked it more than the one I have had... More
