Well located & easily accessible eatery. Walking distance from railway station. Good service in a cosy atmosphere. Staff friendly and efficient. Fabulous food with something for everyone. Very good value for money - portions generous. Wine list somewhat limited with the house wine being surprisingly disappointing. Water served in beautiful jugs! "Dorpsplein" bread kneading adds to the dining experience. Worth... More

Food is based on dairy products and pretty oily. The ambience is great but the little bald manager is impolite and dismissive.

I had the day special, a complete meal for €8. They have an open kitchen and the charcoal grill is allways burning. The location is on walking distance from the back... More

I have a personal connections here because I started with my fiancee here. That night, we ordered and barely ate. Now, we spend every special occasion here and have the best meal that we can have. The price is good, especially considering portions and quality.

Yesterday on my visit to my city of birth we went for dinner in a for me new Restaurant, Dunya Locanta. Centrally located behind the Central Station, this is a Turkish/Mesopotamisch restaurant. You walk in and you immediately feel at home. Large open kitchen on the right, warm atmosphere and everywhere nooks and crannies where people can sit. We ordered... More

Nice and cozy restaurant serving delicious and vibrant platter. we had ordered a vegetarian rice meal for 2 and the portion size was huge for us ! we particularly liked the pink yogurt sauce and aubergine-garlic sauce served as accompaniments to the cold starter. The flat bread served as one of the starter items was freshly made and tasted outstanding.... More

We ordered a rice meal for 2 (20€ each, there were cheaper options also). We werent able to finish it (maybe because the waiting time between the cold and hot dishes was long and We lost some apetite). Our favorite dishes were: the purple yogurt dish 👌🏼, and the aubergine dish. The flat bread was freshly made and delicious. Definitely... More

Really good everything, from the quality of service to the food served. You should try an assortment of the mezes/starters. They are really delicious!

Dunya Restaurant is like a hidden gem behind the Rotterdam Centraal station. The amazing Anatolian & Mesopotamian food will make you very happy. The cosy atmosphere of the restaurant is also very enjoyable. There is a nice variety of dishes that you can enjoy. And also you should try the delicious mezes as starter.
