In business it's important to exceed the customer's expectations and this was truly the case. The first time we drove from Waterbury Center to eat at this restaurant, we were disappointed to find it closed, they close on Mondays.
We love this type of food and decided to give it another try, we were not disappointed. We dined there on Super Bowl Sunday and were the only patrons at that time, I guess because the game was on.
The host was gracious and the food was excellent. We had the mixed mezze platter and the lamb kebab washed down by authentic Turkish tea. We were surprised to be given hot Turkish bread, our only complaint is that we wished there were more mezze on the plate. The babaganouch was ridiculously good as was everything else on the platter.
We followed this with the lamb kebab which my wife and I shared. The lamb was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and was delicious. We were stuffed after sharing both plates, but when we were presented with the dessert menu, we just had to have the Turkish rice pudding. It brought back pleasant memories of being in Marmaris, Turkey. I would have ordered the baklava also, as I was impressed that they added a Vermont twist to it by adding apples and maple syrup, but I would surely have exploded from over eating!
The prices were a bit higher than anticipated, but everything is expensive in Vermont. We ordered from the dinner menu, but we noted lower prices on a lunch menu, prices change at 3:00pm. Being able to eat such fresh and well prepared food made it a truly memorable meal. These guys obviously take pride in the food they present. We can't wait to return!
