The best thing about this place is the cozy, authentic-looking decor. That's the only reason it doesn't get one star. Don't let the woman making bread in the window mislead you into thinking you will receive any kind of homestyle hospitality. Even with a reservation,...More

The food was tasty and the amount was sufficient. So really the plate is tasty and will make you full with variety of salad, side additions and main meal. The service is good and the place is clean.

Probably not the best Turkish food you'll get but definitely worth it given the great selection of different dishes. The portions are pretty good. Friendly atmosphere.

We were looking for a restaurant near the cinema Forum and we found this warmhearted turkish restaurant very nearby, exotic decor, good music and very tasty food, the lentil soup is to die for, as was the lamb and beef kebab. Highly recommanded. Thank you...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
