Had intended going somewhere else for dinner and couldn't get in, so decided to try this interesting looking Turkish place. Instantly one of my top 5 favourites in North Queensland. The food was amazing, service was helpful and friendly and it is just such an...interesting place. The spices in some dishes are perfect. The best Turkish Restaurant I've been to in Australia!More

Good service and delicious food every time I've dined here. Pleasant atmosphere and convenient to the Lagoon and Cairns Esplanade for a nice stroll after your meal.
