Great dishes (like the starter for two), not to mention the lamb main courses such as kuzu shish or kuzu pirzola. Warmly recommended, great service!

One of the best restaurant in town. I found dining room cosy as it was nicely furnished with various oriental objects. Mixed meat for two a la chef was really delicious. Cosy place, good service and good food - can be recommended
