It gets real busy, and warranted. Great food, good service. Decent price. Have been a few times and the kitchen and service are consistent.

Much better than last time. Big portions so be careful ordering appetizers. I would still say no to their pizzas but the meat dishes are delicious!! Don't forget to order a 'raki' after dinner :)! And the staff is very friendly!

If you're looking for a lot of food for little money, definitely go here! I looooved the bread, still warm mjum. After that it was ok. Everybody has always told me how great the food is, so I will go back someday to try it again. The goat cheese salad had too much of everything and was way to big... More

Then swing by this little turkish charm. You get a whole lot of food no matter what you order. Best for sharing I would say. And the food is very tasty. Free starters of hot naan bread, a plate of hummus, olives and dressing and a mixed salat. Very nice and fast service too.

Friendly staff however the food was only so so. A bit burned. And the meat felt it was rushed. I was disappointed maybe it is better now since some time has passed.

Food and servings are very good. Staff is very friendly. It is small (although they have expanded), and mostly full. So better to make a reservation. Parking is a bit of a problem in this busy residential area,so take some extra time for this...close to railway station Velperpoort.
