“Hidden in plain sight!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We thought we could stop by this local restaurant without a reservation and be seated without any problem on a Saturday night. The ONLY reason that was true was because it was quite early and luck was on our side. This place has attracted quite a following, and it grew quite busy, adversely affecting the efficiency of the service. Regardles, the service was still very personal and congenial. The food was terrific and unusual. My husband tried the lamb chunks in a bed of mashed eggplant. Delicious and different! I had Iskender kebab, which is thin slices of doner over fried bread, topped with tomato sauce & accompanied with a side of fresh yogurt. Strong coffee and a shared tasty plate of baklava completed this yummy meal.

“I would bring everyone I know here”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Sefarat is right on the corner of Pleasant Valley Way & Eagle Rock Ave. There is street parking as well as a lot behind Dunkin Donuts. My family ordered the babagannush & hummus for appetizers, and they came with their warm homemade bread. For entrees we had the tavuk kebap, doner kebap, kiymali tavuk adana, yogurtlu tavuk & levrek. Everything was excellent. The meats were juicy & flavorful. The waitstaff was very friendly, attentive & informative. They answered all our questions & made great suggestions. They also gave us free dessert since it was my dad's birthday. I think it's a family business. I hope they last

“Was driving by and starving, and it delivered big time”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

We were driving by and hungry. We looked on Trip Advisor, saw this place, and went in. The good was great, with a big variety. We really liked the apps and Kabobs. All in a nice neighborhood place.
