My father is Turkish and I've spent a lot of time in Turkey and have to say that this is truly fantastic Turkish food! They perfectly capture the Mediterranean flavors; better than a lot of restaurants in Istanbul! Great service as well! Highly recommend it!

Since I've been to Turkey many times, it is GREAT to have a taste of Turkey in my town. Come and enjoy this great, and now expanded place :-)

What a surprise to find this gem in downtown WRJ. Funky ambiance, good service, and great food. Moderately priced, but worth every penny. We got the mixed grill and were very happy with that. Even the hummus was noteworthy and I'm not comfortable waxing poetically about mashed beans. Definitely worth trying and they have a reasonably good selection of libations.

Not too many places for a vegetarian to eat along the interstates in New England. This Turkish/Middle Eastern cafe has a nice slightly funky collegegiate vibe, with enough variety to make it more than a one-time stop. Zucchini fritters, "yesterday's soup" (which always seems to be red lentil), falafel (also available as a sandwich) have all been fresh and made-from-scratch... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch at the Tuckerbox, which is located within an easy walk of Amtrak's White River Junction Train Station. The food was simple and tasty. The server was pleasant.

For years my favorite café in the Upper Valley, now they've transitioned to a full wait-to-be-seated restaurant, with uneven service. The menu has remained stagnant for years. There's still hope that they could turn things around, if they want to.

Excellent food, magnificent bartender who made the whole thing worthwhile, good value. This is a busy place, we had no reservation but they found a place for us with good humor. I will certainly go back if I am ever in the area again. Try it. You'll like it.

Very cool building, especially after the renovation. Place has a lot of potential, but the menu items always seem overpriced for what you get, especially in this area. The staff always seems to have an attitude. I've been several times and always left feeling like I overpaid and was a burden. Ughhhh not a paying customer..why do they keep coming... More

Was on a road trip and stopped in for dinner. Neat Turkish place, nicely decorated with a fabulous menu! Had a real problem deciding what to get. Had the Meze Platter and it was great. Topped it off with the Phylo Cheese Rolls which were also great. Service was good. Stop by if you are in the area.
