I had lentil soup and zucchini pancakes. I also tasted the cheese pide. My friends had the salad with chicken, chicken pide, and chicken saute. The food was delicious. Bread and dipping oil served while waiting was very tasty!

There are several tempting choices along main street and this one offers an outdoor dinning option along with middle eastern choices. In for the evening we ordered take out. We had the sultan's smokey eggplant and lamb entry and the zucchini fritters. Both excellent.

Recently made the move to vegetarian and it's tough finding a place when travelling. Great service, very good veggie options and will be back. Food was hot, ready on time and service levels extremely good.
