Great hospitality. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Nice conversations. The food was delicious. Before getting what you ordered, they serve some Turkish bread and tapas as a welcome. Perfect opportunity to close your last day at Kata. Thank you for the nice time!

I went to Istanbul mostly based on the great reviews and was really glad I did. This was my first time to eat Turkish food, but it didn't disappoint. Great hummus, great bread, GREAT chicken Kebab. Everything was great.

Best Turkish food I had in Thailand! Good quality of food, especially the meat ( we had the iskender kebap) was delicious! Everything is homemade, I felt like on Turkey in there! Definitely a must visit!

As an Everton fan, it’s easy for me to say, but this restaurant is more impressive than that night in Istanbul!! It’s slightly off the beaten track, but it’s a nice walk away from the main strip, which gives you a pleasant insight into how...More

Fairly inexpensive as it is less than any other restaurant where we ate on our last trip. And though I love Thai food, you don’t get nearly as hungry again quickly like Thai.
