Just what we hoped it would be! Great location, easy access, really good breakfast, and if you want it, a turkish flare to the menu. Two of us went "traditional". The omelets were very good, we saw the chef crack the eggs! Ample portions, and a nice little touch: great coffee is included with the prices. One person tried a... More

I love this kind of food - and it offers a great option for vegetarians, however, on the day I went it was obvious there was no A/C, and the service was pretty much non-existent. Food was okay.

A Turkish friend recommended this place, so we decided to give it a try The food is very good, and so is the service. We had lahmaçun (Turkish pizza) and it was amazing. The okra with lamb was good and the cheese boregi, delicious It is located 10-15 min from downtown Boston, but absolutely worth it

The family restaurant is a Turkish restaurant with a good breakfast menu and very good cook. But first you have to get past the bland faced unhappy? greeter, order taker, payment taker and gestapo of the restaurant. Says nothing, hands you a beeper. When your order comes up, you get it from the counter, get your own silver and napkins,... More

I have ordered breakfast from here a few times while at work. The food always arrived warm and delicious. I would recommend breakfast anytime and will be a continuing customer, the pancakes, eggs, bacon, all cooked flawlessly

Came here on President's day with some friends for breakfast. The restaurant was empty except for one other table. Upon entering the restaurant, the lady at the front, who was very frumpy faced, did not greet us or even acknowledge our presence. When we asked for a table, she said we had to first order breakfast with her and then... More

This is the best for genuine Turkish food. If you want a great dinner for under $100.00 for 2 people , try hummous, grilled fish with rice, and spinach pie. Turkish food is not only delicious, but it is also healthy. The wine is hearty and the service is excellent. There is a warm ambience with lots of locals and... More

I look forward some mornings to stop in here for breakfast. I usually order 1 egg with bacon. They give you delicious home fries with it and toast. I always put the orange marmalade on my toast. The coffee is good. Sometimes I'll have pancakes. It's a very nice restaurant to enjoy a meal in. The sun shines in from... More

Ate there few times using their buffet. The lady behind the register looks very unfriendly. Buffet is $12 + per pound! Way overpriced! Meat selection is very limited to nonexistent. Overall, food is very greasy. Soup was over-salted. Plates are plastic, not very clean. Had to stop at the bathroom, - horrible! In bad need of restoration and dirty toilet!... More

Large portions and very tasty and flavorful. Extremely good salads and hummus. Lots of good lamb dishes. Worth the trip and good value.
