Excellent to have some authentic Turkish food after many years. The doner kebab and mixed grill were great. Good humus and the dolma were very fragrant with cinnamon. It would have been nice to have more rice with the dishes though.

Our dinner at the Kebab house was excellent. We shared an Meze platter as an appetizer. Great mix to go with the fresh made lavash bread. We also shared the Mixed Grill Kebab. The portion was more than enough for two persons. But my favorite...More

Turkish food is a true fusion of many different cultures, a collage of different cuisines so to speak. Turkey, geo-physically located as a bridge between Europe and Asia, has been a melting pot of many civilizations since the beginning of history. Once the land of Hittites and the Greeks, it later became the home of the Turks, a nomadic peoples. Therefore, its cuisine is not only a collage of all the cultures that lived in Turkey throughout history, but also a collage of cuisines from all the lands Turks lived before settling in what was then called Asia-Minor. Today's Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Turkic, Ottoman, Greek, Persian, Arabic, Lebanese, and Armenian cooking that can be defined as a true and unique Mediterranean food experience. Turkish food, as most Mediterranean food, relies heavily on appetizers called "mezes" and especially the freshest of ingredients. Although it has many meat specialties, it is predominantly based on fresh vegetables. Therefore, it offers a perfect combination of vegetarian and meat dishes, appealing to a broad spectrum of the eating public.
