This wonderful strip mall Turkish restaurant offers excellent food, spacious apart tables, very good service, and entertainment on certain days. Starting with the assorted Mezze, you can select any 4 or 6 from the menu with a variety of fresh vegetables, which other Mediterranean restaurants have it set as their choice. The Kebabs were outstanding and cooked medium, certainly nowhere near to oblivion. Fish and meat dishes were tasty and plentiful. Their Baklava was the best I ever had served with a glass of complementary tea.

Restaurant offers choices from fish to meat. We enjoyed lamb kebabs, hummus and gyro platter. Each meal comes with vegetables and choices of rice or French fries. Lots of parking. Service was nice. We'll definitely be back.

3 out of 4 of us - food good, waitress brought wrong meal for the 4th dinner.
Used a coupons- and was given the less amount. Had manager come over and he corrected.
We left without dessert. Not our normal.
Maybe they will be there for awhile?

We came here last night for my fiance's birthday. Overall, we had a good experience. The dining room had a nice atmosphere. For an appetizer we ordered various dips including hummus, baba ganoush, spiced eggplant, and tzatziki. They were above average with the hummus and tzatziki being a notch above the others. For our entrees we ordered the adana kebab and beyti kebab. The adana was very tasty and flavorful. The beyti was excellent as was the rice we were served as a side dish. My only criticism was the wait for our entrees. It took about an hour for them to be served. The grilled vegetables the entree came with were cold by that time. Overall, I would come back as everything else was excellent.

Been there 3 times in the last month, the food tastes great. One can tell meat and vegetables are fresh, prices are reasonable. Friendly service, plenty of parking.
I'd recommend the Adana Kebab and Shish Kebab and almost all the appetizers especially the İclikofte (kibbeh)...
