We arrived at Kapadokya fairly early, after a tiring day. The restaurant is lovely and the ambiance was calm and welcoming. It was our first experience with Turkish food and we enjoyed it very much. In fact, we sought out Turkish food later in our travels because of our good experience here. The waitstaff were attentive and friendly, and the food was a very good value.

I'm no expert on Turkish cuisine and my main experience of it is in New Zealand where it moved right to the top of my favourites list. Having Kiwi friends with us we opted to dine here. I chose the iskender (chicken) which I'd enjoyed many times in NZ, but I'm sorry to say it was a pale imitation lacking most of the trimmings which I'd expected. The chicken itself was fairly flavourless and the sauce on it was a pretty harsh tomato-ey one that did nothing for it. However others in our party were happier with their meals. OK but not great.

Booked for early last Saturday evening, and glad we did! Very busy, but with a good buzz atmosphere, and lovely smells of freshly grilled meats etc. A lot to choose from on the menu, almost too much, as some seem to sound quite similar, but the waitress was very helpful and patient while we made our choices. We even had some fellow regular diners offer some suggestions!!
All food was freshly prepared and very tasty, wine good and very reasonably priced, in fact the whole bill was very good value for money and good friendly service so we will definitely be returning soon!!
It is no fine dining experience but for good value, atmosphere and a wonderful change from the countless Italian restaurants on offer, I would recommend a visit!

Just to clarify one point or maybe more... I have written a review which has been removed. The food here was bland ie no taste no spice and a tin of bins would of been better . They have declined that i have ever eaten here but there is one thing .. I will never eat here again there is no atmosphere, the staff are bored and the food is bland bland bland. The best thing is the door, you walk out of.........

----this is not a genuine review---
this is the second time nasty comments, from yourself.
when you havent been to our restaurant, why you writting bad review.if you have, you would say, food name and when you came, as i could see your comments, you cant say it, you dont know the food,if you making a comments it wasnt nice, you must remember the name of the food , you didnt like.
you havent been here or tried our freshly cooked nice food, just a false review, i have checked all your reviews, same evening you made 2 reviews, one of them for our restaurant, second one, ( the whippet inn) so you went to meal 2 restaurant in 1 evening, so surprised, it tells us, this is just fake review, get real, you wasting your time writting fake comments to some restaurants. this is not fair, infact you havent been inside of these places, i wonder have you got a restaurant in the area you trying to write a bad reviews to some restaurants. i really wonder ........?????
since 2012 august we never had 1 star rating , you know why,? our team really take care of our valued customers, we are so carefull, to make sure, every 1 of our customers leaves our restaurant happly, this is our first aim, i hope it will answer for your nasty comments.
