It was around 3.30pm when we decided to try it. The place was nice, a bit difficulty to find parking but this is the case in this area, nothing new. we ordered two plates: 1) Iskender meat: it was delicious but the portion was so poor, one layer and bread underneath and 60% of the plate is yogurt!!! 2) doner...

This restaurant really has the flavor of Turkey. Love their sandwich and platters. The Lahmajeen is amazing. the only thing is the menu is not that big and the options are a bit limited. Also the rest. is a bit small so I mainly order for delivery and the food is always very well packed. I strongly recommend it

They bake their own bread! The round tombic are my personal favorite. The place is clean, consistent, and sandwiches are priced reasonably. We also tried iskandar once but were a little disappointed. They did an excellent job on branding and packaging. It will be no surpirse that this place will or should be all over the uae and why not... More
