I was very positively surprised by this restaurant despite its rather average rating. People might complain based on price for quantity but that is simply not true. Higher quality restaurants have much higher prices for less food than the ones we observed at Sumach. The...food we ordered was the 1 meter long kebab, and needless to say it was what it said it is - a massive meal for 4 people. The food was so much that we failed to eat it all. The food was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. It didn’t take long before it was served either. For a group of four people we had two drinks a person and the main course, the total was 124€ excluding the tip, which is a reasonable price for such a massive meal. We ended up taking home a decent amount as well. The staff is friendly and makes sure everyone is happy. They would check up on us and if we had specific things we wanted changed they were responsive and adequate. The waiter we had would chat with us and was pleasant to talk to, we conversed in german. The location is not hard to get to and is rather central near the subway station at Plärrer(3 min walk from it).More

Last year we had dinner in this restaurant and we were happy with the quality of the food and kind service. After one year we visited this restaurant again today and it was a total disappointment. We wanted to order lahmacun and we have been...told they never served lahmacun before because it is too simple and we shouldn’t came to a restaurant for this dish. What they told was ridiculous because even the Instagram account of the restaurant advertising this dish with some photos! In general the attitude was rude. We ordered other dishes but the they were really poor. It is sad that the quality was not sustainable.More

My husband and I went to Turkey last year on vacation and we fell in love with the food. We had long been looking for an authentic restaurant to relive those memories, and we found it! Sumach is a very nice and elegant restaurant, the...food is delicious and the service is really good. It's easily accesible with the u-Bahn. We will definitely return with friends once this Covid-19 is over!More

I’m in germany for a couple of months and really missed turkish quisine. This restaurant has cery delicious soups and mezes (starters), especially humus was even better than i had in Turkey. Kebabs and meat was also juicy and tasty. Portions were big too. Also...the owners of the restaurant were professional but warm and welcoming at the same time. Food, tables etc were sparkling clean. I will definitely come again. Good price performance ratioMore

The service was extremely bad. There was an old man serving as waiter who is definitely proper person for that job. The restaurant was completely empty as seen in the picture and i just sit on one of the empty tables. He come to me...and said that table is reserved and it was for 4 people and since i was alone , i should sit in a small table. I found that very unprofessional considering the restaurant completely empty. The food had good appearance but not delicious at all especially imam bayalldi. The kebab was one of the worst i ever tried. Not recommended restaurant.More

Ordered humus plate and mixed grill along with Turkish tea. Everything was tasteless and below average. Looked great though (see photo). Besides, sitting outside was a wrong decision as food was swarmed with honey bees (yes they can sting bad) and flies. The dishes aren’t...cheap either. Overall, not happy but ate enough that I was satisfied. Will not be going there again.More

Food wasn't so great for those prices. On top of that we got disturbed by fruitflies. I wouldnt go there again. It is hard to understand all those good reviews. Only two table were occupied in whole restaurant at dinner time.

Six of us including two kids went to Sumach for dinner. It looked pretty fancy, but we decided to try it. The dining room is large and lovely, nicely decorated with table cloths and comfortable chairs. We ordered some appetizers and dinner plus a bottle...of Turkish wine. The food was great and prices were less than expected. Most dinners were around 15 euros. A decent bottle of wine was 18 euros. The service was great. Our waiter was very nice and made the kids feel welcome. If you like Turkish food, Sumach is a great place.More

An authentic middle eastern restaurant served only the best Turkish food with the bread freshly from the oven, very cozy place and very friendly service, English speaking waiters and with a English menu at very reasonable prices, btw, the meats served here are Halal.
