Treated like royalty and a provided with delightful Turkish-themed meal. Started with the filled artichoke hearts (Imam Bayildi) and then had a house specialty, the chicken breast Dardanelle, finished with a tasty light baklava and a Turkish coffee. Even the bread was an excellent treat!...More

Delicious quality fresh food, large portions, price very reasonable . Order at the counter, waiters bring it to you at table. Dinners seem to be more formal, different menu, probably need reservations. I haven’t dined there yet.
