One of my favorite places in town! They are always friendly and the food is great. I love the spicy gyro platter, but have not tried anything bad - everything is good!

This restaurant was my lunch go-to during my stay here. I tried the chicken shish kabob, shrimp shish kabob, and the baklava on different occasions and all were delicious. My orders were always togo and they came out fast. The meals were filling and I loved the pita bread with the tzatziki sauce.

Awesome food. Good sized portions and appropriate prices. Service is friendly and polite. Turkish tea and baklava is a great way to end the meal.

This is a great place to get away from the tourist traps near the beach. Décor was Turkish (I assume) and nicely updated. Prices and selection very reasonable. Consider going here if you want something different than the standard fare away from crowds. Service was excellent.

This is a great little local restaurant to satisfy your middle eastern food cravings. My husband had a falafel pita and I enjoyed a chicken gyro, and we were both pleased with our meal as well as the timely service. Definitely put this on the list of places to eat in Fort Walton.

We lived in Turkey for 2 years and were hoping to get some authentic Turkish food. This is not the case. The decor reminds us of Turkey and the family who runs the place is a Turkish family.
