Excellent menu with a good variety of beef, chicken and fish as well as a number of shawarma dishes. The food came well presented and was very tasty. I'd certainly return.

The place is pretty tight with no waiting area, so we waited outside for around 20mns. The service was not that great we waited another 15mns to order. But! The food was very very good. I had eskandar, not the greatest eskandar i ever had but it certainly is delicious! Döner was just as delicious😋 would come back but not... More

We ate here several times. There are several similar restaurants in the area within 10-15 minutes, so nothing particularly special about this place. The doner is good, but sometimes greasy. They messed up our take out order on occasion, but overall have been nice. The food is reasonably priced for this part of town, so we if driving is not... More

Came here for lunch with friends. Tried their falafel pita wrap with fries for lunch and was not disappointed! Friendly service, great for families (there were several there during our lunch) and menu has all the Turkish favorites. Looking forward to going back and trying their Iskender!

Finally decided to try this place having walked past it many times and we were pleasantly surprised at how good and tasty the food was. The service was efficient and quick and the staff were extremely friendly. We didn't realize they didn't serve alcohol though, so were a bit surprised to find out we couldn't have a drink without our... More

This was our first time experiencing Turkish cuisine and we really loved it. Vegetarians will not be disappointed. If you like to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, be sure to bring your own as they do not have liquor license. However, they will happily serve it without charging a corkage fee. There were five of us and... More

A taste of the center of Istanbul (Turkey) in Beverly Hills...Mood and service were incredible, a tasty lentil soup, a fresh Greek salad and amazing kebab (grounded meat skewer) with rice, hummus, onion, tomatoes and green chili enhanced our night out. We will definitely come back!!

I am always looking for great, ethnic food in unexpected places. That's what I found here. The place was pretty full just past noon. I knew it must be good because no one was speaking English (except the waitress). I ordered Imam Bayildi for only $9.95. It was a delicious eggplant dish. I was also brought extra pita bread with...

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
