“Shame”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

The food was good (not great) but the service and attitude (at least toward us foreigners) not even close to OK. We let a street "troller" lure us into this place, then the big mistake: trusted the waiter (he looked like the owner since his pic is in their brochure) and accepted his suggestion for our order. What we got was at least 3 times more food than needed. When he presented the bill, I asked to see where the ordered items were on the menu. They were not there; he said that he combined several. Of course we received a big bill, 140TL for 3 of us, no alcohol. This was by far the highest bill we saw in Turkey, even more that when we had a bottle of wine (heavily taxed in Turkey) with dinner in higher class restaurants. I noted on another forum a similar comment about this place. To be avoided: The Cemberlitas Saray Pide and Kepab Salonu. This was our only bad experience in Turkey, Shame.
