Dear Nigel, Thank you very much for your helpful comments. I would like to make three simple comments about your review: 1. We prepare the Beef Strips on the iron plate as a 'very Turkish' dish, which is supposed to be 'greasy = fatty', because our Turkish customers prefer it that way. Most of them even dip their breads into... More

Enjoy super steak, wine and music with good hospitality. There is different style of music everyday. We very much enjoyed jazz at Thursday night.

Minor jazz restaurant is a truly wonderful find in Yalikavek, marvellous ambience, talented musicians and pretty damn good steaks. My wife and I visited on a Friday evening, and were entertained with some rather charming dinner jazz and later with some spectacular Latin music. We had two or three starters which included calamari and roasted aubergine followed by a surf... More

Dear Philip, Your comments are extremely biased and most of them are technically incorrect; - like calling a Tabouli (= a salad) as a poor meze, which is NOT even a meze - or like blaming our artichoke hearts for 'pot burns', although they NEVER enter a pot ! - or like interpreting the "entertainingly filleting of a fish directly...

This is a family run restaurant with excellent life jazz music. I rate it very good mostly due to the energetic atmosphere of the place with a very loyal customer base.

Dear Çiğdem hanım, Although we wanted to translate the management response, which we have written to your husband 10 days ago in Turkish, because of the turbulent times, we can only respond now.

This restaurant serves good local food…but the highlight is the fact it's a jazz bar and there is live music from exceptional local jazz musicians to accompany dinner! The staff are also lovely and accommodating.

I've given Minor 4/5 despite the food being 'average' and expensive on my last visit. Truth is, on some visits it's a 3/5 and on others a 5/5! Minor is not just about the food (a good, varied menu: steak, fish, chicken, turkish) as it has good live music every night. The service is usually good and I have had... More
