Truly delicious! A great value for the money. It was the first time that my wife tasted Turkish cooking, she was very pleased with all of her meal.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

My niece took us to this restaurant because it is her favorite. And to our surprise, we had the best gyro and lamb meatballs we ever tasted. The hummus was fresh and delicious and the pita bread was outstanding and homemade.

“Better Than McDonald's and Healthier Too”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

This is a pleasant ,no frills place that serves good food that is both healthy and oh so reasonably priced. We had a lamb Gyro and baklava. Excellent lamb and very tasty Baklava. The place was busy on a Wednesday night with locals and bus station drop ins and a few tourists like us. They do a thriving carry out business too. Our bill was less than it would have been at McDonald's and the food was far superior. Don't be turned off by the simple exterior or the location next to the bus station. The restaurant has its own parking lot and we felt quite safe.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

This little spot is a hidden gem. Don't be put off that it is next to the bus station. The area is clean and safe. The interior of the restaurant is cozy and spotless, and the aromas will entice you to sit at a booth and relax. When I stopped by two well educated young women were chatting together in a way that said young people gave it the stamp of approval long ago. I had the lamb gyro and it was delicious. I couldn't suggest any improvement on it whatsoever - and for 13 years I lived in the Mediterranean region where sandwiches like this are commonplace. I'm looking forward to returning.

“Fresh, healthy, delicious and affordable!”
Reviewed 18 May 2011

Great little Turkish restaurant. Had the VERY tasty roasted eggplant salad, lentil soup, Iskender kebab and baklava. They also serve an absolutely authentic Gyro sandwich. The meat is shaved off the vertical rotissery skewer right in front of your eyes (not reheated or microwaved, as in so many other places!)
