Great neighborhood find. The service was great. The portions are large enough to share. The night we were there a 3 piece band was playing and the restaurant was packed. Noise level for conversation was challenging!

Very much enjoyed this restaurant. Food was very good and portions large. We each had something different and everyone thought the food was great. There was a very noisy table near us who never heard about using your indoor voices, but otherwise service, ambience, value, etc. was very good. I highly recommend.

A la Turka has been at this same spot for 29 years, and is a neighbor stand-bye. Service is fantastic, food pretty good, especially the lamb platter . A bit pricy for what you get, but if your are there when there's belly dancing, it's worth it!!
