Ordered takeout for dinner and got the red lentil soup, baklava and lamb wrapped in eggplant. Pros: An appetizer, dinner and dessert was enough for two adults and a toddler. The lamb dish was flavorful (the buttered rice on the side was tasty too). So-So:...More

Went on a sunday night - pretty empty. Our waitress was nice and the food came out fast. Good flavor and portions, nothing that knocked my socks off. Used a groupon so prices were reasonable.

I ate here at least once a month for a long time. I thought BYOB was great. Who wants to pay twice amount for restaurant prices? Favorites: Iskender Kabab and Grilled Mix Chicken Desert: Kazandibi

Have been for lunch and dinner. Unpretentious place on the T, nice Turkish dishes. Cold appetizer tray a good way to test out five appetizers, very tasty. Lamb kofte excellent, not super spicy. Sultan's delight with chicken a bit disappointing.
