This is the perfect and best Turkish restaurant in all of Suffolk County. The service, food and atmosphere is un matchable. The food no matter what you order is cooked to perfection.

My grandmother, mother, daughter and I came to have lunch here and it was scrumptious! My mother and I had the lamb wraps and the lamb is perfection. My grandmother had the spinach pie and it was super tasty as well. We had hummus as...More
