Perfect service, great atmosphere, and outstanding Mediterranean food. Lamb gyro meat and hummus we’re crowd favorites but every dish we tried was great. Reasonably priced with generous portions.

I had enjoyed Turkish coffee once here with my brother about ten years ago, and, in Durham again, decided to finish my evening with another. The coffee is thick, sweet, and flavorful. Though I can't speak to the food, the Turkish coffee is very good.
