We happened on this place on our first day in Gent. We had a lovely lunch outdoors. The food was excellent, the wine was very good. They were able to make sure my food was gluten free, which I appreciated. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Second time here. The waiter was very welcoming and nice and made sure that we felt good. Since we were the only big group there we got some extra service and a free desert. Order the grilled salmon which was over cooked and dry. Oven potatoes that came with it was ok though.

I chose this place since it seemed popular with a lot of turkish families in the restaurant. Affordable prices and authentic rustic turkish dishes. I went with the Güvec with was good and fresh. Friendly staff which speaks english, and offers a english menu aswell.

I would rate Aspendos over the other Turkish restaurants nearby. They all sell very similar fare, but this one is in a more interesting street, and you may be able to sit outside as well.

Bad experience here. Was one of the places open late, but here are the drawbacks they don't tell you about. 1. no alcohol. 2. they only take cash. 3. if you eat late, you will get food that is warmed over. It was a poor meal

One of the adresses we visit when we have a late appetite, or when we're out with friends, is Aspendos. There is not much to say about it. The restaurant is clean, the food is good and the service is friendly. And the price is correct. They offer a variaty of grilled meats, stews and a dish, that is served... More
