This restaurant is difficult to find and has another name, Red Mezze or something like that, but it's worth the hunt. Good variety of well-prepared Turkish food, good service, nice decor, quiet and tasteful. Prices are mid-range.

Large group of 8. Service was friendly and excellent. All loved their food which was reasonably priced and portioned. Staff kindly answered all questions. Would go again. Only drawback is an odd location and were remodeling when visited.

I have never had a bad meal @ the Red Mezze as it's now called. Always fresh and delicious. So thankful for a restaurant like this in the Tricities.

Great gyros! The staff is super nice! However, a few menu items are a little off. You can't go wrong with the lamb gyro and two sides!

We ate here twice on a quick visit to Johnson City to attend the retirement party of a now professor emeritus at East Tennessee State University. Started with dinner the day we arrived and liked it so much that we not only returned for lunch...More
