Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 January 2017

We often come here before/after a movie or play and are always satisfied. These are the items we have tried:
Lentil soup: delicious red lentil soup served with a large piece of bread
Cacik: homemade yogurt, cucumber, mint, dill, garlic: very refreshing
Hummus and babaghanouj: very tasty
Kofte Lamb combo: combination of a skewer of lamb and two pieces of kofta: very good

But the one item I always have to have is their rice pudding, delicious! They have other desserts like baklava.

Have always found the service to be prompt and pleasant. They have recently remodeled and painted the restaurant. This is the perfect place to go to for a good inexpensive meal.

On a hot day in Berkeley, this was one of the few that had AC on, so I dined there, and the food was very balanced with meat and veges and grain. The falafels were just right in texture and taste. Service was very courteous and my questionsabout various dishes were well answered. Some traditional Turkish music would be nice too.

This place totally feels like a student restaurant with the affordable prices, down-market decorations and perfunctory service. The food was all right, nothing special. Not a place to pamper yourself.

This place offers decent Turkish food- not much to write home about if you're used to the real thing. Some of the dishes are very fresh, others like the burek taste reheated. I think that dishes are overpriced for a very simple quality of food. The service is slow, and the servers aren't very friendly.

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.
