This restaurant specializes in Turkish food. The food generally was quite good. The chicken Kebobs were a bit dry. However the lamb shank special was excellent. The desserts were only average. The service was very good.

Personnel is very good and friendly, the food is good. I wont recommend the mezze for two because 80% of the plate are beans and very little of the others Turkish appetizers that were vey good.

We met our friends there and had a great visit. The food was prepared very well and tasty. We shared zucchini Pancakes and a salad and then had our own entree. We so enjoyed the room and the food.

Little room, tables are very close to each other. Yet cosy. simple but honest and tasty grill dishes. Vegetarian selection limited and the dish was not very convincing,

This Upper East Side restaurant offers very good well prepared Turkish dishes. The service is very friendly and also efficient. The space is simple and attractive. Only the noise level is disturbing whenever most of the tables are occupied.

So glad we stopped. Delicious, healthy and reasonably priced Turkish food in a cozy setting with very friendly service on the Upper East Side. Can't wait to come back for dinner! Photo is Turkish mixed vegetables with yogurt sauce:
