Ate here today on a recommendation. I walked in and had a bad feeling. The place was busy so I gave it a shot. Chicken kebab was ok. The grape leaves were inedible. Rice was ok. The price was reasonable. They have a buffet but...More

Just what we hoped it would be! Great location, easy access, really good breakfast, and if you want it, a turkish flare to the menu. Two of us went "traditional". The omelets were very good, we saw the chef crack the eggs! Ample portions, and...More

I love this kind of food - and it offers a great option for vegetarians, however, on the day I went it was obvious there was no A/C, and the service was pretty much non-existent. Food was okay.

This is the best for genuine Turkish food. If you want a great dinner for under $100.00 for 2 people , try hummous, grilled fish with rice, and spinach pie. Turkish food is not only delicious, but it is also healthy. The wine is hearty...More

I look forward some mornings to stop in here for breakfast. I usually order 1 egg with bacon. They give you delicious home fries with it and toast. I always put the orange marmalade on my toast. The coffee is good. Sometimes I'll have pancakes....More

Ate there few times using their buffet. The lady behind the register looks very unfriendly. Buffet is $12 + per pound! Way overpriced! Meat selection is very limited to nonexistent. Overall, food is very greasy. Soup was over-salted. Plates are plastic, not very clean. Had...More
