I found this amazing restaurant last year and had to take my family when we returned this fall again on business. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is wonderful. The wine and entrees are delicious. But their baklava is pure heaven.

My wife and I visited this Turkish restaurant a couple of weeks ago. It is located in an old house with parking in front or on a nearby side street. We were very pleased with our selections: "Chicken with Couscous" for me and "Turkish Delight"...More

Very authentic and delicious food. If you have a couple hours to spare and not in a rush than this is must place to come and eat. There is something for everyone, I'm the only vegetarian in the group of 5. Friendly service.
