Definitely try most of cold starters called "meze". As main dish you can "tuzda balik means fish", "tuzda tavuk means chicken", "tuzda et means meat". These dishes are covered in large amount of rock salts and cooked in the heated oven for at least 2 hours. And result is fantastic. This sophisticated way of cooking making type of meat; fish, chicken and lamb meat to melt in the mouth.
As dessert, try kunefe which is not only best of this cuisine also best of Middle eastern desserts. It is like a king.

it was a terrific expeience but we were in a hurry and the salt crusted chicken just could not be served .i t came as we ready to leave we had it but it was too salty... but the staff was over friendly and packed it for us...

what i would like to ask the manager is cant we put silver wrap on the chicken first..
and isnt there a shorter method of cooking and what is this salt crust made of how does it catch fire ,i hope it is not harmful or does not include any alcohol .. please give a true explanation as i am worried.....

We had the Lamb version of Tuzda Taruk over dinner and we, a family of 4, finished it in minutes.
Not that we were really hungry (we did have a full breakfast and a sumptuous sea food lunch) , the rock salt cooked to the core lamb was simply a delectable treat.
Highly recommend!

We read the review and dropped by. The food was totally delicious. The humus was delicious. The chicken also.
