We ate here a couple of years ago on our last visit and had a great time. Came back again and had another great meal. Don't fear the cuisine if you are not familiar, we are still newbies, we ask lots of questions and the...More

We went there for a late lunch. We ordered the hummus, baba, bread, olives, salad and chicken skewer. We were happy with everything except the olives were mediocre. I would definitely go back!

We sat on the rooftop on an oppressively humid evening but were quite comfortable. The staff was, despite the weather, friendly, polite and efficient. Our dnners were delicious. Would highly recommend for an interesting meal.

Excellent food and service. I’d recommend this restaurant highly. Make a reservation ahead of time to get a rooftop table. The eggplant special of the House was delicious.

Shepherd Salad was good, but a bit over dressed. The vegetable stuffed eggplant and lamb stuffed eggplant were both quite good. The babaganoush was very tasty. The donor kabab was tender and nicely flavored. We sat upstairs and the atmosphere was nice and unhurried.

Food had great flavors. But the service was very rushed and less than knowledgeable. Impossible to enjoy the meal.

So many times I have Greek/Turkish/Mediterranean food and am left disappointed. This is my favorite type of food and this place didn’t disappoint. Fresh food cooked well. Took my mother, who doesn’t care for this type of food, and she was very impressed. The bread...More

Description
Turkish food is a true fusion of many different cultures, a collage of different cuisines so to speak. Turkey, geo-physically located as a bridge between Europe and Asia, has been a melting pot of many civilizations since the beginning of history. Once the land of Hittites and the Greeks, it later became the home of the Turks, a nomadic peoples. Therefore, its cuisine is not only a collage of all the cultures that lived in Turkey throughout history, but also a collage of cuisines from all the lands Turks lived before settling in what was then called Asia-Minor. Today's Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Turkic, Ottoman, Greek, Persian, Arabic, Lebanese, and Armenian cooking that can be defined as a true and unique Mediterranean food experience. Turkish food, as most Mediterranean food, relies heavily on appetizers called "mezes" and especially the freshest of ingredients. Although it has many meat specialties, it is predominantly based on fresh vegetables. Therefore, it offers a perfect combination of vegetarian and meat dishes, appealing to a broad spectrum of the eating public.
