“Afforable and ok turkish dishes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I chose this place since it seemed popular with a lot of turkish families in the restaurant. Affordable prices and authentic rustic turkish dishes. I went with the Güvec with was good and fresh. Friendly staff which speaks english, and offers a english menu aswell.

“Good Turkish food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

I would rate Aspendos over the other Turkish restaurants nearby. They all sell very similar fare, but this one is in a more interesting street, and you may be able to sit outside as well.

“Dont go late”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

Bad experience here. Was one of the places open late, but here are the drawbacks they don't tell you about. 1. no alcohol. 2. they only take cash. 3. if you eat late, you will get food that is warmed over. It was a poor meal

“Good Turkisch restaurant with friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

One of the adresses we visit when we have a late appetite, or when we're out with friends, is Aspendos. There is not much to say about it. The restaurant is clean, the food is good and the service is friendly. And the price is correct.
They offer a variaty of grilled meats, stews and a dish, that is served in some kind of wok. And also all kinds of skewers with meat and fish.
The seven of us all ordered the same dish, a platter of the chef, with a variaty of grilled meats. Lamb, beef, chicken,... On the side there were mashed patatoes, vegetables, rice and bread. The total bill was just under 160€ and that included 7 aperitifs, 2 bottles of wine and a couple of coke's.
During weekends it's best to make reservations.
Aspendos is located in an area with a lot of (Turkisch) restaurants, but for us, it is the best. If we didn't make reservations, it's always the first place we try, before we go to another restaurant.
