This may be the best of theThis may be the best of the Turkish restaurants on the mid-Peninsula. Knowledgeable staff, great food, beautiful service. A little noisy in the restaurant when there's a full house. Great rice pudding!

It is charming, well-run, friendly, with absolutely terrific food. And in Menlo Park of all places.Head and shoulders above the others on the block, including the (too brightly lit) Left Bank and the odd, overly-expensive steakhouse.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprised that there is aSurprised that there is a kids' menu. Portions size are okay. Overall delicious food. Waitress was a bit spacey. Got a freebie Baklava which was quite delicious.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a turnaroundWhat started out as a potential disaster ended beautifully. We arrived on time for our 7pm reservation on a Friday night. After 15 minutes, Ibraham (sp?), who might be an owner or manager, recognized that we had been waiting and told us "you shouldn't have to wait that long." He apologized and said he would "take care of us." He comp'd our party of four a glass of wine each while we waited. After 30 minutes we were seated. Ibraham served us personnally and was attentive and brought us a complimentary appetizer. He then brought us a complimentary bottle of wine, which was delicious (and not cheap). He more than made up for the rough start. The food held its own; we all loved our entrees. I was impressed by the awesome customer service.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
