We ate so much that we skipped... More

Last time I ordered off the menu (pide) and it was excellent. This time I tried some of the traditional foods that were offered in their buffet. All were excellent. This restaurant is one of my favorites in this town. Great service! All the locals come here. That should tell you something...

I enjoy pide in our local U.S. Turkish restaurants but what I had at Avlu was light and crispy, not so heavy and sharp in taste.

We had heard about the place, but never visited it before. The food was excellent. We went there with turkish friends and had them pick a whole meal for us. It was plenty of food and it tasted very good. The restaurant was a popular place so people had to wait for seating. After the first visit we would come... More
