Had a really nice brunch here this past President's Weekend. When so many places in town were all booked, we ventured here and had a great time. Service was very good for our large party and the food was very good. Many of us had the omelettes and they were very good. A nice time was had by all. 👍🏻

This tapas bar offers many choices, and of the ones we chose we could not fault any of them. Unfortunately we could not say the same for the attitude of the waiter. Even before we had finished our dinning experience we were presented with the bill yet we had not been asked if we would like to view the dessert... More

Had a late night snack here when I stay at Highroad DC Hostel which is just around the corner. Food and drink choice is huge but I was satisfied. Portion size is small so be prepared to order more if you're starving.

This restaurant is located on a popular restaurant strip; but appears to be the only Turkish restaurant in the neighorhood. The food was very well prepared and reasonably priced, even though the servings were somewhat small. The service was efficeint and professional. The menu is varied and I will return.

My husband and I have never eaten Turkish food before and very much enjoyed our server's suggestions. Mojitos are wonderful! We had an appetizer and two entrees. They were delicious. Check it out.

In addition to a Happy Hour on Tuesday nights bottles of wine are half price. We enjoyed sitting outside. Our menu selections were not expensive but the portions were tiny. Although they had stuffed eggplant on the menu it was not available so I opted for stuffed zucchini. My stuffed zucchini was delicious as were the vegetable pancakes ordered by... More

We (two of us) ordered 2 small bites (too small) and 2 regular dinners. Dishes were not too bad, but simply too small. We left the place still hungry. Too pricy for too small dishes.

I have eaten at this Turkish restaurant several times and went back there last night (see separate comment below about the nearby parking garage before you go, though). It was as good as ever. I am really picky about restaurants and rarely like a place enough to go back, but I would go back there any time. It's in a... More

An intimate, tiny turkish inspired restaurant. As a person with celiac disease there wasn't that many options for me to eat lunch here. I had a salad which was OK, but nothing special. Nice staff.

Great place for Sunday brunch with pleasant service. We really appreciate that there was no wait for Brunch in Adams Morgan, rare find! Loved the french toast and the fact that they have non-pork meat options for breakfast.
