We ordered 6 dishes and liked all of them. The wine list is extensive and the service is friendly. Highly recommended!

My exposure to Turkish food has been limited so I was really looking forward to dinner at Agora, and it did not disappoint! The menu has lots to choose from, including enough vegetarian options to make a good size meal of it. We shared several...More
