Bayram, the restaurant owner just like his name means festival sang to us a lot. We had our dinner there real pottery Kebab with turkish tea. The specialty of this restaurant is they serve real pottery Kebab, not frozen ready-made pottery Kebab like any other restaurant. The service here was really good, before serving the food he showed us some... More

The location and barbecue food was very good. The owners took very good care of their customers. Hosting was very good. I recommend grilled meat and kısir with bulgur.

Went here twice: I live in Turkey, and this food was great. pillows to relax, cosy and warm. All the food is like home cooked turkish meals. Order the bulgur/cracked wheat dish, the kebabs, the testi kebab. Didn't try but the Sac looked yummy. Basically, all will be solid yummy cuisine, but its the ambiance of the place and warmth...

We had a dinner in House of Memories just few days ago. The owner is an authentic person, singing around and trying to make you happy with his enthusiastic service. He is the cook, owner, waiter etc. food is very good and cooked as you wish. If you are in Uchisar no need to go for a fancy restaurant. Prices... More

The service was interesting and the food was okay and of a local Turkish style. The owner/waiter was enthusiastic and sang for us. We sat on pillows on the floor downstairs. There were four tables.

Been to Uchisar 3 times now, and without fail I find myself spending my evenings here. I have tried many other places in town, with varying degrees of success - but this place really is hard to beat. Great food, great views and atmosphere, down to earth, and superb service and value for money! This time around I was in... More

I think this place is one of the very few restaurants that prepare "testi kebabi" correctly. You should book it at least 3 hours in advance. In addition, the owner will sing for you :)

Simple and lovely place with great food and superb host. The host sang traditional songs while providing a wonderful service. Lamb cutlets and meat balls were fantastic. Such a shame little business because of recent troubles. People please go as Turkish hospitality second to none.

Simple but delicious Turkish food for a very reasonable price. The restaurant near the castle has a terrace with an amazing view and is in a pure traditional Turkish style. The owner is an original, absolutely sweet and adorable, singing while serving. Nice resting area where you can nap before going to the castle.
