We had such a good time there. It's name is Turkish and I don't know why but it is so cool. There are vegan and vegetarian dishes and you can also enjoy watching football matches there.

You can't blame them for having a limited menu and service due to the hurricane, but still the food was average and so was the service. I've had better times in this restaurant, which is stuck behind a Starbucks on Ashford Avenue.

Delicious, authentic Middle Eastern food and attentive, but not overwhelming service. Will definitely eat here again and recommend it highly.

Delicious food and good atmosphere. Chicken shish kabob is die for! The only thing I don't like is that it's bit pricey, I have eaten same quality food in US and it's not that pricey.

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times and they have always been good. The portions are large and the food is always flavorful.

This places is a little hidden. If you're vegetarian, this is a must. If you're not vegetarian, this is a must. The bread was freshly made, the dishes were prepared to perfection, and the staff was friendly. Ask for the hot sauce!
