Stopped for a quick lunch, delicious starters (the garlic yoghurt was very nice) and extremely well cooked fish! Highly recommend the Gozleme- crisp pastry and oozing with cheese The seating was on the floor, and the staff were very accommodating

When you enter in this restaurant you are asked to chose 6 different mezze among two dozen, and a meat to be grilled. We chose a kebab with mixed beef and lamb. Very tasty!
