    Leisurely service which is absolutely appropriate for the style of dining. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly. Dishes were fresh, well prepared and the expected portion size for the price point. Wine list is small but interesting and was put together with intention to match the food. Overall a very nice experience and I will go back.

    We love this place and will always come back. The staff are so great. We come in with our toddler who is well behaved but messy. The staff always make us feel so welcome and never let us clean up after her. They also are very generous. 11/10

    What a wonderful neighborhood gem. The outdoor parklet is nice and reasonably protected from the weather. The food is fantastic. Had cream of mushroom soup and dumplings as appetizers, both were yummy! Had short ribs which were a bit too lean so a bit dry but still very flavorful. Shortribs are meant to be fatty, so perhaps they need to stop trimming the fat! The halibut over Israeli couscous and mashed potatoes was fantastic. Very flavorful and well cooked. Everything on the menu looked delicious, the servers were friendly and we will definitely return!

    We were disappointed in our 4 dishes but nothing was terrible. (but that is a frequent experience for us at SF restaurants). Stuffed zucchini was the better of our choices, although the food that our neighbors had looked like it might taste better??? (They had the Manti next time, and the stuffed eggplant and kofti. Our short ribs were NOT short ribs, but some kind of lean dry chuck roast but the veggies on top were really terrific (mushrooms, onions, carrot). The mashed potatoes underneath were sub par. The citrus salad was okay. Nothing else was surprising or really good. Chair was not comfy, but room was well ventilated and noisy but bearable. The crowd was young and happy.

    Tasty Turkish food. Lamb chop very good, along with the calamari appetizer. Dessert was good too. We enjoyed the affogato with Turkish coffee and the Turkish cake. Lovely, friendly service. The server opened up a new area for us since we had dogs and needed more space, and ensured we had heat lamps to weather the Richmond cool evening.

    Excellent, attentive service from friendly, professional staff. Servers made informed recommendations from the menu and explained dishes and wines in a helpful, engaging way. We ordered multiple small plates and each was tasty, beautifully presented and memorable. We will return soon and often to this unpretentious neighborhood gem.

    Our second time dining in at a new favorite local restaurant. Took my mom here for her birthday and then one of my friends for a birthday celebration. Great for special occasions, the service is always wonderful and the general ambience is super cozy and nice. Delicious well prepared food. Can’t wait to continue returning!

    A fun find for a great neighborhood Resturant. Highly recommend the calamari and the trio of spreads. Looking forward to coming back again. Only suggestion for the restaurant is related to the olive appetizer. Some of the olives are pitted and some aren’t. Either only use pitted olives or warn patrons to still be on alert for pits!
