“Authentic Turkish Food”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 October 2017

We had a late lunch here after a trip to Tanger and wanted to find a decent place in Riverhead. This is right on the Peconic with a view. It's a small, family run place (with the oldest daughter helping to serve). We had the sampler with a side of babaganush and falafel. The food was authentic, hot and excellent. All the salads were excellent. The falafel was also good. The falafel plates came with an excellent tahini sauce. I thought the family that ran the place was very friendly. The place looks like a small shop that you would see in a seaside village in Turkey. Have not had a main meal there, but I am sure it's good.

Rude service all around. If you don't like serving people food and give extra utensils or plates if requested then you should not be in the food/restaurant industry. Terrible service, had to get up multiple times to request something only to be met with attitude. Food was not even good and like others have mentioned the bees/flies definitely ruin the atmosphere. Food was mediocre and hard to even enjoy with the rude service. All this place has going for it is the location and to add to the pain of my experience was the 20% tip that was automatically added. Still can't believe it.

I've been here twice. Both times greeted timely with a smile. Order taken & food delivered hot and yummy. Shish kebabs, gyro and hummus are all delicious.

Food was ok. Flies weren't. They need to really do something about the flies! The staff seemed to think we were crazy for wanting to change table whilst they dealt with the flies. Was not a relaxing dinner.

This casual Turkish restaurant was highly rated but very disappointing. We had a nice river view, but the food was not so nice. The gyros tasted like it had been reheated and the Large Mediterranean salad for $10 was more like a side salad in quantity and did not contain quality ingredients or dressing. For example, the tomatoes were not ripe and there were only a couple of tiny pieces which were not flavorful, and the feta cheese and olives were very bland.
We would not return.
