It is one of the traps inside the souk. If you are hungry, it is a place to get filled up. The food was good enough, but had nothing special to it. Not many spoke English at the restaurant, but one managed quite well and i got what I ordered.

Maybe the best köfte in Buca. Many people travel to Buca in their lunch time in order to eat there. Not a big variety but it worths for köfte and yoğurt.

Friendly staff ang affordable prices are also a big plus and I always make it my priority to come visit when I can. I recommend this restaurant highly if you like Turkish... More

It is a tradesman restaurant and they serve amazing meetballs, spicey meatballs and meatballs with cheese...I... More

The place is next to NATO HQ. Although it has a thick meatball, it is very very delicious. You have to eat special desert after meal which is named as "Kemalpasha Desert".

Meatballs and beans and rice and chicken pieces, eggplant and tomatoes. SImple but well spiced and cooked. Just on the corner opposite the jewellers in the main street. Great for restorative lunch after exploring, try the yoghurt drink, salty and a bit sour but very refreshing! Rice pudding also worth saving space for!

We were a group of 4 persons doing a tour of Tukey. After visiting the ruins in Pergama, our guide called a local friend who recommended this restaurant not far from the ruins. What a surprise. The food is Turkish of course, but the meatballs were those made form local recipes. The bean salad was delicious as was our entire... More
