I’ve been scared at the beginning to eat outside at this kind of restaurants but from the moment I found this place to be honest I will never change it. Food is amazing.

Came here today with 5 co-workers. We pre-ordered so our food would be here on time. Considering I've never had Turkish before I have now fallen in love. The food was to die for. I had a chicken shish with rice. The salad was beautiful...More
