Troya was known as llios or llion, a name which can be found in the epic poem, where the poet immortalized the city through mythological characters like King Priam, Hector, Paris and beautiful Helen. For centuries, this story was regarded as only myth until the ruins of the city were found in western Turkey in the mid-19th century.
At Troya, we strive to create modern Turkish cuisine with south Mediterranean influences that celebrate this glorious history. We invite you to visit us and experience our creations with one of the city's most eclectic wine list and Troya's relaxed dining room.

Ziryab started out as a traditional Mediterranean restaurant complete with a hookah bar. The hookah is gone, but the food and cocktails have expanded into new territory while still paying homage to their Middle Eastern roots. For instance Chef Khalid El Mourabit offers nicoise-style sardines with tomato confit and potatoes, or mussels with saffron mustard sauce. Everything is made in house, from the pita and falafel to the yogurt and spice mixes.
An example of one of Zach Taylor's many signature cocktails is the "Ziryab Manhattan" with date-infused Bulleit rye, vermouth, lapsang souchang-infused angostura bitters, and orange peel.
