We are staying at Freo B&B in Freo and walked to Istanbul to meet friends for dinner. We haven’t been to Turkish for many years. Didn’t have a scoobies what to order or how much for 4 people. The $45 per head banquet would have been amazing, but probably too much food. We are not big eaters for various reasons. The lovely young waitress was SO helpful and didn’t encourage us to overorder. I chicken pide to share and 3 mains turned out to be perfect. No one left hungry but nothing was wasted. All delicious 😋 Entertainment card was accepted. With soft drinks and 1 coffee...$86!! Absolute bargain! We’ll be back with a bigger group.
We had the dips which were homemade and yummy, the bread was also house made. You have to try the Lamb Pides, really tasty and excellent value for money. We will be going again.
