The service couldn't be better; they are always friendly and helpful. Everything we ordered was great - order the appetiser platter if youre with a group. The salads are also fresh and well made. Every entree was excellent - one of the nicest moussakas I've tasted and the stuffed sea bass is awesome

Only reason, I'm not giving them 5 stars, is because it was my first time. I loved it. A great pilsner beer, Efes, one of the best I've ever tasted, with Alexander's favorite. This is one of their less costly dishes, but it's very good. I believe, they soak this type of bread in butter, then mix it with slices... More

Decent apps and greek dishes, but nothing outstanding. The restaurant was mostly empty when a party of 7 from work went in. We wanted to sit inside (again fairly empty) but they tried to push us to outside seating and we had a couple of women with us that were cold. So we had to push to get them to... More

I wanted Turkish food on my birthday and this place was 7 minutes from my friend's apartment so we decided to give it try. Oh, was it good!!!! The next best place to Istanbul that I have had since being there. We each tried something different: The Adana Kebab Plate, the Chicken Donar Kabob Plate, the Gyro Plate, and the... More

Went for lunch Staff were nice and yogurt drink delicious and cold mezze starter pretty good. Things started to go downhill with the main course. Lamb shish not seasoned and over cooked, no dressing on the salad. I was expecting better, perhaps the dinner service is better.

Generous portions, very good quality food , combined with great service and a quiet atmosphere where we could comfortably catch up on conversations with family . Each dish was special in its own way.

Is not very difficult to find a good spot in Palo Alto, average quality id high especially if you stay away of University Avenue. This place is a Turkish place with very good food, it is not a very beautiful spot but the food is perfect. Thanks
