This restaurant was recommended to us so we did not see the comments on here prior to our visit.
The waiter (an older guy in the blue shirt) spoke English and was extremely helpful in explaining the menu and dishes to us.
We got an extra dish that we didn't order, but in fairness so did everybody else so it was obviously part of the meal no matter what else you had ordered - it was spicy chick pea patties with lettuce leaves to use as a "roll" and the waiter showed us how to do this.
There was a choice of alcohol too; we had Efes beer and a half bottle of red wine. As in most Islamic countries where alcohol is served, it does tend to be expensive and this was the same for all restaurants that we ate at during our stay.
We ate here twice during our stay because the food, service and cleanliness was good. It is very local, and a modern building so it is a functional restaurant rather than a romantic-candlelit-throws-cushions-dim-lighting experience.
Both the chicken and beef shish were tasty and as previously reported comes with rice, roast pepper and tomato and thinly sliced onion mixed with spices. The mixed salad was fresh and plentiful and the spicy tomato appetiser, yoghurt with mint and the icli kofte appetiser (bulgar wheat casing with minced lamb inside) were tasty too.
We did not have any problem with bread, a large freshly made flatbread was delivered with the food. Butter was also provided although we didn't ask for it, but watching other local diners it was part of the meal as they buttered the inside of the flatbread, salted it, and folded it to eat.
One couple had a large platter of which looked like different grilled / baked meats with rice and roast peppers - more than enough for two.
The price was in keeping with other restaurants in the area and we were quite happy with our dining experience.
