Very fresh, reasonably priced ethnic food. Unusual location as it overlooks a parking lot and a river. No alcohol of any kind, not sure that they allow BYOB. Been there twice for eat in and several times for take out. Convenient, local and ethnic.

Fantastic Turkish cuisine in a charming little restaurant. Go early on busy nights! (And don't let the grumpy face of the proprietor fool you, he's terrific.) Food is fantastic, you won't regret.

We've been here a few times; sometimes with friends, others with our teenage children. The food is always very good and the service is always friendly. Very good Mediterranean cuisine in a nice atmosphere.

Had lunch with family and friends ... food was delicious. Place is relatively small and it was already crowded by 12:30pm (Sunday) which is a good sign as the place opens at 12pm. Did not eat outside tables bc it's January but it looks like...More
