Food was not of high quality and there were very limited options for vegans. Even the lentil soup is made with chicken broth. Staff was not aware that this did not make the soup appropriate for vegetarians or vegans.
We hadn't been here in a long time, and we decided to try it again and we had a fair experience. This is a arrant with no frills. The food is ok. Our favorite is manti; give it a try.
We went to this place on a kind of whim because we like middle eastern food. We were hoping to find a new treasure, but this is an odd little place that seems to be trying to figure out what it wants to be. Here, though, I will focus on the food. As a group of five diners, we ordered a large selection of hot and cold appetizers for the table - most of which were okay, but none of which were special. The falafel was burned. Many of them are variations of labne, a yogurt base. The spinach pie seemed microwaved. Desert was really a huge disappointment - the baklava was a pile of filo on top of a slurry of nuts and honey, no attempt at layering the dough, and the Turkish delight was the worst I have had with a weird texture. We sent the whole platter back and they kindly took it off the bill, offering us some free fruit instead, but by the time it came out of the kitchen, we were already on our way out the door. The waitress, who was friendly and apologetic, offered it to another pair of diners who had just ambled in who were delighted with the free appetizer.
Food was fantastic! We ordered a mixture of mezzes, kebabs and dessert and were very pleased with everything we ate.
We tried this on a Saturday night and it was not busy. Easy parking in the back. Appetizers were very nice and the kebabs delicious. Generous portions. Nice waiter. We will be back.
What more could ask for? The portions were generous and everything tasted very fresh. This cozy restaurant is just south of the Senator Theatre with parking around the back. The owners are Turkish and do a great job making you feel welcome.
Food was good. Service was very good. Waiter gave some good recommendations. Baklava was very good. Had a good experience. Would recommend to go again in a group.
If you go here you MUST have the lamb. It really is amazingly cooked and so very well seasoned. I really enjoyed that this is a small laid back spot so the wait staff was VERY attentive to my needs. This place will get carry out and dine in patronage from me on a regular basis. The lamb is THAT good!
the worst restaurant experience ever, awful waiter who was owner or owners son if I am not mistaken. being on his cell more important than customer service just a terrible wasted eve ning
The food was really great. My boyfriend and I went on a week night and it was really quiet. Only one other couple. We were concerned that it wasnt going to be good but once our food started to come out....yum! Their falafel was just OK but the hummus and our main courses were fantastic. Our server was nice and informative. I only wish they had more customers...we really hope itll be around as a delicious week night fun dinner.
Fairly new restaurant with a very likable and eager owner who wants to please. On a Saturday night there was only one other table occupied at 7:30, and just a few more filled in later. Appetizers were large and combination of Mediterranean dips was plenty for four people. Grilled lamb chops were well seasoned and prepared medium rare as ordered. A dinner of mixed sliced lamb and beef with a tomato sauce served over grilled pita and surrounded by rice was very good and too much for one person. Desserts were typical Turkish fare but not to our taste, so we did not order. Turkish coffee and tea were also good. Service by owner was outstanding, perhaps because we were only one of a few tables. Would go back again to try different dishes
We've been here at least three times. It's no longer BYOB. We think the food is quite yummy and done well. Calamari, baba ghanoush and lamb chips are my faves. The service is imperfect (yet charming), but they try really hard and do it with a smile. We'll be back!
I ve been here twice owner really energic about making this place work. Limited menu but what they have is good. Can't wait till they expand their menu. Go wan't to see this place grow and they deliver in the neighborhood
The food was delicious! We had the 'Turkish ravioli", mixed kabob and vegetable kabob. The Turkish tea was wonderful. But the highlight of the evening was the service. Our waitress, Jasmine, could not do enough for us, including setting the music volume to our liking. We even had the erasure of meeting the owner, Junae, and were delighted with stories of his adventures. Overall, a top-notch experience. We will be returning.
Food was different. Server was good.the atmosphere was really nice.
