Comfort food with a Turkish twist. We had a fabulous dinner on a chilly night. Inventive appetizers, cocktails and even a delicious Turkish beer. Lamb stew is a must and will be a regular meal. Attentive service and great value. Don’t miss the baklava....pure butter.

Delicious food. Everything was great including the service despite the fact that two waitresses were quite stretched to take care of so many tables.

Saturday night 13Feb2021. Our second visit this year. Outstanding again, so highly recommended. This time we got the hot starter appetizer plate, and while it was outstanding, we actually prefer the cold appetizer plate, as it has variety more suitable for us, like the hummus and yogurt dip. The wife's salmon kebabs arrived well done, but this was quickly corrected to the rare side of medium as ordered. My grilled chicken kebabs were super. Not a lot of vegetable with the kebabs, but the amount of chicken was very good. Good volume of rice. The baklava was excellent, as was the Turkish coffee, complete with plenty of residue which demonstrates authenticity. The only minor negative was that the wine was a bit on the expensive side at $40 for a bottle of $9 wine, but considering this establishment is quite upscale in downtown Fort Worth, ok we go with it. Overall: Super. Highly recommended.

Always love the food here. Everything is outstanding. We had the hot sampler appetizer with a bit of everything. All of it was cooked perfectly and delicious. The Falafel Dinner was excellent. They were perfectly fried and not greasy at all. They were served with tasty hummus, delicious rice and vegetables. They also serve fresh olives with every meal and free hot pita bread. Service is great too. Definitely a gem in Sundance Square!

Everything was wonderful, as usual, but a table of adults and children opted to play games loudly on their phones that was disturbing everyone. The manager asked them to turn down/mute. They refused.

Dolma and hot mixed appetizers were wonderful. All our entrees were $19. The meat kebabs were tasty but could have been more tender. My braised lamb shank was super tender and delicious.

Even with obvious short staffing and no bartender, the timing and delivery of the cocktails, appetizer plate, hunkar begendi, and salmon kebab was very good. Every one of the mixed cold appetizers and the two main dishes were absolutely delicious.

Always outstanding, delicious food with impeccable service. European standards of waiting to give you your bill because they understand you may linger with your company. We’ve already made reservations for Christmas Eve. Will be lovely to enjoy their ambience and stroll to Sundance Square all decorated for the holidays.

My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here and it will not be our last visit. The menu offers a lot of great choices that made it difficult to choose, but we ultimately decided on the salmon kebab and the branzino. Thoughtfully prepared and seasoned with great spices but not salty. If you are looking for something a little different please try this place, as everything was spot on, from the hummus to the baklava. The grilled pita and olives are the perfect beginning and the not overly sweet baklava was the perfect ending to a great evening.
