This was a surprise. I was meeting some friends who suggested going to a Turkish restaurant in the Tenderloin area. I was like, "Is it safe?" And while our walk from the Union Square area had me on my guard, it was all fine. The...More

I really loved the beyti kebab. As dessert we shared the kunefe. Also they have real Turkish tea and coffee. If you like strong flavors you will like the tea and coffee. Friendly staff.

Not the most exciting interior but the food is traditional Turkish and so tasty. I love this place so much I chose it for my rehearsal dinner. The carrots are awesome, the pide is worthy and the donner is solid.

To me, it's a neighborhood restaurant. To others, especially tourists, it's a bit off the beaten path. They have a nice wall mural inside and seating outside. If you like Turkish food I highly recommend this restaurant. I've been there more than once and have...More

This little restaurant serves good authentic Turkish food in a simple setting. But, the surrounding neighborhood is pretty sketchy and not suitable for everyone.

Today my wife and I were in The City (San Francisco), and decided to try a turkish restaurant we'd heard about. We went for lunch. It's located in the tenderloin, which may put some people off-don't let it. The food was really good. I've forgotten...More
