The food was delicious! It was a lot of food for the four of us. The waitress were also very nice. There were many people at the restaurant. I am glad I booked a table for us. The set menu is normally $45 dollars. As it was Tuesday it was just $35!!!

Absolutely fabulous food, quiet authentic Turkish cuisine . The service was lovely and friendly. The food was bought out a bit quick, a bit longer between courses would have been nice. Definitely will return
