This is definitely the hidden treasure in George. Although it is a Turkish restaurant it caters for every taste. Definitely the best value for money in George/Wilderness.

The absolute best place in the Garden Route for tender, tasty, and abundant ribs. Only offered on Thursday evenings. You will need to book a reservation about a week ahead to insure a table.
