Great tasting kebabs and old Ottoman/Turkish dishes (mostly lamb and beef). Wouldn't recommend it for vegetarians though. One drawback is that, the menus do not state prices which I do not like since people may have a certain budget that they would like to stick to.

Service is simply terrible. A table next to us was waiting for one glass of coke for 15 min. We set in the open area, its full of little fruit bugs getting everywhere. Right in the middle of our lunch a waiter started swipping the corridor, flooded it and started washing out all of the disgusting dirt right next to... More

The restaurant is located very close to the seaside which is very popular area called Kordon. It is very close to sightseeing attarctions and shoping district in Alsancak. Especially in summer and spring you eat your very delicious meet and startes (meze) in the garden . If you like lamp it is really good. The decoration is very flourished there.

This restaurant wasn't quite like any other I had visited. They start by bringing out a variety of appetizers, you choose your main dish, and they end by bringing dessert. The main dishes are pretty much limited to sheep or sheep. I was told they had excellent meat, so I guess I was expecting more variety. I ordered something I... More

This restaurant is not a place to eat,sit and chat. You have to eat and go. It is nearly at fast food restaurant speed. Food is good & delicious but you have to know it is a bit too fatty. If you want to have alcohol the choices are limited.
