My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal here on the way home after a day of being out and about. We each ordered a plate and shared. Nice surroundings, pleasant staff, lots of 'regulars'. Certainly would return.

This is great food, even the garlic bread. Good monito as well. Very friendly and inviting. Good portions that leave you feeling full. We had an Anniversary dinner here after the Opera. We left satisfied. I had chicken kabobs and husband had Midnight Mix. Delicious

Close to Sky City Casino, I was attracted by the $25 deal for Two courses which they run from Sunday to Saturday. I had the Mousakka and Sticky Date Pudding, and both were excellent. And that's the appeal, they have a range of Authentic Turkish/Middle...More
