“Authentic and Delicious Cypriot Food”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

'Nenemin Evi', which means 'my grandma's house' is dedicated to preserving the authentic culinary traditions of Cyprus and serving dishes that are hard to find at the highest level of quality. Here you find, in a beautiful ambience decorated with typical Cypriot items, not only delicious dishes for lunch but also mouth-watering desserts that are extremely hard to find (unless one happens to have a Cypriot grandmother who's great in the kitchen). The traditional fried meatballs are heavenly, and the liver of lamb is as good as it gets. You also shouldn't miss the desserts samsı, gatmer, and simit helvası.

At Nenemin Evi you can also buy traditional Cypriot jams, fruit preserves, honey, or the local cheese halloumi.

This place is simply unmissable for lovers of Cypriot food.

“Best restaurant to try Turkish Cypriot cuisine”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Nenemin Evi is the place to visit for lunch if you want to experience the Turkish Cypriot cuisine. The name of the restaurant actually reveals it all - it means "My Grandmother's House".

I ate Cypriot style meatballs a couple of times and they were as good as my grandmother's :)

They prepare stuffed vine leaves, a variety of pastries and the famous local vegetable dish called "molehiya" which you will either love or hate.

They run daily specials which may include "tarhana" soup. It was very delicious.

If you are a tourist, you can also buy souvenirs to bring back home such as Cyprus olive oil or green walnuts in syrup ("ceviz macunu").
