Good Food - Bit PriceyWent to eat dinner the other night with my family home from college (party of 7). It was my first time there but my wife and son have been there a couple of times before attending venues in Norfolk. Food was very good, and the atmosphere is notably enjoyable. I really like Turkish tea and their's did not disappoint. The baklava was very good (probably the best I have had). All in all we had a very enjoyable evening together. The cost may be a concern to some though, as we spent over $200 and we do not drink alcohol. If roughly $30 per person sits well with you, and your are looking for good Mediterranean / Anatolian dining, this is a great place to try. I think you'll be glad you went.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSadly DisappointedI have raved about this restaurant from the first time I visited it. However, after this visit, I would have to say I am sadly disappointed. They have changed their menu and it isn't the same. The spicy walnut dip was very dry and bland, they had to bring us items that were missing on our platters and they don't offer pita anymore. How can a Turkish restaurant not serve pita? The purpose of our visit was to take an out of town guest who lived in Turkey for years to bring back memories and sadly it didn't do that as she said it wasn't very Turkish.
I still will hold out hopes that they will bring back some of their menu options from the old menu and that pita will make its way back on the list.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe owner was also the hostThe owner was also the host and he was very friendly and helpful. He checked on us several times to see how we were doing. Our server was very attentive and personable and had great recommendations.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA beautiful meal time and againI love this restaurant and make a habit of going when I am in Norfolk.Fresh and delicious food. And lots of choices for people like me with dietary restrictions.Great ambiance too.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!! FoodAwesome experience!! Food was great but I wish there were other options for eggs than poached.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Secluded Ghent Gem isThis Secluded Ghent Gem is a great place to bring a loved one or a colleague or the family to enjoy amazingly prepared and presented cuisine from in and around the Mediterranean and the Middle East. If you go for Brunch be sure to try the artisan bread and the preserves as they are all made in house and a great start to one of their omelets or one of their other brunch dishes! A must go if you find yourself in Norfolk. If you want to try it during the week, do try to go around dinner time to enjoy their signature entrees!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of 3. 2 had great experienceParty of 3. 2 had great experiences. My food was not great. The lamb chunks - kind of like pulled pork consistency - was served not hot enough at first, after reheating, the lamb was very bland and tasteless. A seasoning shortcoming. Terrific server and foh manager.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was pretty good overall.Food was pretty good overall. My lamb was a little dry but I had ample hummus to cover it. I brought a date who is vegan and she loved the place.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife is gluten intollerantMy wife is gluten intollerant among other things, and they had a great selection.
