We ate here twice on our recent holiday in Icmeler. Both times the food was very tasty, good quality real Turkish food. The people running this restaurant are so friendly and hospitable, they explained to us this was their second year of being open, it's a family run business.

My boyfriend had the mixed grill which was nothing like a British mixed grill, in a good way. I had the lamb shish kebab which was very tasty. We had the mixed mezze starter both times to start which was lovely, all home made, and delicious. The second time we both had one of their 'casseroles'. Very good and excellent value for money. Drinks were reasonable, I had a couple of glasses of wine which tasted much better than the all inclusive offering at our hotel.

All in all would definitely recommend a visit if you want somewhere that isn't just a typical tourist restaurant. It is a little off the beaten track, (opposite Romance Palace) but worth a visit.

We ate here 3 times during our recent holiday.

Each time the food as beautiful. The mezes were lovely and included humous which was tasty.Included is a large plate of mixed salad which we saved and ate with our main meal.

My husband and I had the traditional food off the menu and our daughter always had a pizza which the waiters brought from the pizza place next door.

Service was very good and the waiters were chatty but not pushy- hence our 3 visits.

We couldn't fault it.

Have just eaten here. It was lovely. The service is brilliant, the food exceptionally tasty and a friendly atmosphere. The quality was brilliant and the price superb. We had mixed meze to start, a bottle of Rose wine, 3 mains and apple tea. We asked for a plain chicken kebab with pitta for our son and nothing was too much hassle; fantastic. The price 115 lira about £32. Please eat here if you come, supporting local people with local food, not burgers, pizza, fish and chips or curry.

This restaurant was at the top of our road opposite the Babadan Apartments and we had a lovely turkish meal. Compared to some not the best situation in Icmeler but you could not fault the food or service. Very friendly staff

We visited here last year when this new restaurant was just starting out and came back this year to enjoy a very tasty casserole dish with traditional bulgar wheat. Lovely authentic Turkish food and well worth a visit.
