The food was great. We turned up on a Monday, the cafe was busy which was a good sign. The waitress was lovely and very helpful. We all decided to go for the mixed grill. I was not massive but it was very tasting and it filled the spot. It consisted of a small steak, chicken and a lamb kebab. Salad a small piece of Turkish bread and hummus. Drizzelled with a yoghurt dressing.
I must let you know that on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings you can buy 2 main courses for $30 they also do 10% discount for students.
Worth giving this little gem a try.

We ordered the 2 for $30 special and got a chicken plate and the spanakopita. The cucumber yogurt was wonderful. The plate comes with salad, and hummus. Depending on the main, it also had bread,cucumber yogurt or tabouli. Each individual dish would not stand out, but the combination, especially with two plates was wonderful.

If you love Turkish food this is the place to go. You need to book as it's obviously very popular. Our meals were most delicious and the waitress charming. Right on Cuba street.

The food was good. Initially was skeptical what would it be like in New Zealand to have Turkish food as I had bad experience at other places. Surprisingly for a joint outside Turkey the food was good and if I may it was splendid. They have a wide range of items to serve but sadly they don't serve the famous lentil broth which tastes great with the Turkish bread. Anyways I loved it and recommend people to give it a try.
