Excellent baba ghanoush, dolmas, hummus, cucumber yogurt and other cold side dishes. I had esme, a red pepper mixture with a bit of heat. Sharing a few of these with friends with really good fresh bread is a vegetarian's delight. Gyros, falafels can be made...More

Good food. Had the meat cheese pie was excellent. Had the chicken beyti. Chicken a bit dry but flavorful and tomato sauce on top was great.. Staff was Turkish and Turkish people were eating. Legitimate. I recommend.
