Excellent food and service. The only issue was that it is very cold and foggy in the Richmond District of San francisco at night. But great variety of food - loved the dessert at end - kind of a baklava with creme and fruit. Great burger with feta cheese as well.

This is a lovely and unique neighborhood restaurant with a lot to offer. We held a book club meeting here and our reservations were at 6:30pm...there were a few parties in the restaurant when we came but it cleared out pretty early and so we felt that we had the whole place to ourselves (thursday night!). The food was very good and the wine list was quite diverse and a very good value. I love this place and hope to come back again and again!

Love Lokma but unfortunately this last visit the main course was cold and had to be sent back. Still a favorite but consistency is important to us.

I love this small neighborhood spot. Best tomato hummus and baba ganoush I've ever tasted. It feels like someone's Büyükanne is back there in the kitchen cooking with love.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we invited another couple who had not eaten there to join us.
The food as always was very well prepared and portions were very good. The service was not quite up to previous visits.

I almost always order the sea bass. It is good sized whole fish with bones. The plate with other things on it was too small to dismember the fish so I was constantly trying to get bones out. Server did not come by for some time and by then I had eaten what I could and has a mess.

Our friends were very happy with the meal and you'll probably see them again.

There is one other thing. The dinner menu has never changed since we first started eating there. We'd be there more often if changes were made from time to time.

I'm almost positive the owners read these reviews and I'm positive that there will not be a problem with the fish. We will continue to invite family and friends to join us in the future.

Super delicious! Loved everything (except the Burma dessert) and would definitely dine here again. Portions are perfect and everything is tasty. TIP: order some extra pita to dip into your leftover Zuccini Dolmas sauce, divine. Sauces are all so tasty.

Hesitate to give it a great rating, for fear that this neighborhood will become so packed that we won't be able to get in without booking weeks/months in advance. I hope the restaurant's success doesn't ruin it. The food was absolutely perfect, menu was interesting, cooking was perfectly executed. I had a whole fish (branzino), delicious, perfectly presented, though more bony than I would have liked (tedious to take bones out). Friends had short rib, lamb chops and manti, they all loved their dish (I tried the manti, nicely textured dumpling with a wonderful sauce, that surprisingly, not over-salted like most restaurants would have done).

The restaurant was quite busy by the time we were leaving, and while the wait staff did everything they could to serve us promptly, they probably could have used an extra person or so.

Friendly, lively neighborhood gem, I hope it doesn't get ruined as it gets popular.

Hearty fare, good for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Varied menu with Turkish flavors.
Friendly wait staff; not too intrusive.
Warm, convivial atmosphere.
I highly recommend this corner neighborhood eatery.

I feel so lucky to have this little jewel of a place in the neighborhood. I already see lines out the door for the brunch menu. Obviously a lot of care, love and talent is going into the operation. Good luck.
