This is a "homey" Turkish restaurant in a strip mall. Neither fancy nor expensive but the Mediterranean food is excellent. One has the feeling of having intruded into the kitchen of a Turkish family. They have excellent appetizers, and in my view, their Haidari (yoghurt) is the best I have eaten in many other Turkish or Greek restaurants. Several dishes employing eggplant and all based on lamb are superb. The service is great with friendly and efficient waiters. The place is quiet enough to allow for conversation even when extremely busy. The value (i.e., the ratio between cost and quality) is outstanding

First time here and a pleasant surprise. The bread was the best I've ever had. Food was good but a little too much oil. A great place if you're not in a hurry and want good conversation with friends. Servers were very friendly. Planning on going back again. Lunch portions were generous. Restaurant was very clean and plenty of parking.

If you have never had Turkish food, this will pass as good food, but having been to outstanding Turkish resteraunts this wasn’t good in comparison. In fact I think a lot of it is frozen and reheated products, the Kunefe definitely so. The customer service was outstanding, the atmosphere quiet and cozy, however. I just think if you are a Foodie, you will be disappointed. I also didn’t see any Turkish customers, which is always a tell tale sign.

Great Turkish food! We lived in this region of Turkey for several years and their dishes are authentic, well prepared, and taste just like they would in Anatolia. We also love the fact that they have Turkish wine- too bad they were out of Turkish beer, but that is another reason to return!
