I had a wonderful time. This couldn't have been a better post Valentine's day dinner. Sorry we were there for 3 hour but it was perfect! See you soon.

St. Louis is incredibly fortunate to have such a spectacular Turkish restaurant. The owner is Turkish and has a menu that's very similar to food we had when we were in Turkey. Deliciously spiced but not "hot", just very complex flavors, strong but not overwhelming, rich and luxurious. The food is cooked perfectly. We've been there many times and it's never once disappointed. Try to get a booth if you can, just a bit more charming.

Few cities actually have a Turkish restaurant, let alone a really great one like this. It's a jewel in our town.

Totally enjoyable atmosphere and service, good selection of delicious food, and reasonable prices. We were with another couple who also had a wonderful experience. We talked and ate for hours! Our server gave us just the right amount of attention and was very responsive to all of our requests and questions. Will definitely come again.

The food was wonderful and the setting was great too. We were there for an anniversary dinner and requested a romantic table, which worked out fine, but we felt we were being rushed the entire time we were there. We were barely into our appetizer before the entree came out. They also were pulling our plates before we were finished, it was strange. Our server seemed bothered that we wanted a dessert. I understand that waiters need to turn over their tables to make more money, but there were lots of empty tables all around us. Perhaps we're not the demographic the restaurant wants, or he assumed we were poor tippers.
