It's in a small cottage that's been upgraded here and there. However the family is there cooking and serving. We had the mixed appetizer plate. LOVED the babaganoush and hummus, pure, not too lemony! Great bread basket. Then we had Chicken kebabs, cigarette borek (skinny spring roll with feta chese) and kufte. All were delicious. We gamely tried a Turkish... More

We arrived in mid afternoon during the week and were happy with the doners that we ordered. They were very good. Reminded me of Turkey. Surprised that I had to get my own water refils.

On way to meeting, friends and I stopped at Real Doner in Petaluma about 3:30. Quiet, not dinner hour yet. Food was good, wish for a little more spice. Wraps are a favorite here ... and turkish beer.

My wife and I were so surprised to find an authentic, reasonably priced Turkish cafe in Petaluma. Recalling our visit to Istanbul, the food featured fresh ingredients, home style preparations, and generous portions. A great spot for vegetarians or lovers of this style of cuisine. Run by a family, this is not a fancy spot, but is well worth it!

There is so much to love about this place. I am a lover of Turkish/Mediterranean food. I have never been disappointed here. Their tabouleh is much more parsley than bulgar- I prefer it this way. They have a yogurt- cajik- and it is insanely delicious. It is a plain yogurt mixed with cucumbers, oregano, garlic and mint. Their portions are... More

I've been here twice in the last month and have enjoyed my lunch both times. I love the falafel wrap. My husband enjoyed his beef and chicken wrap. The portions are generous and the owners and wait staff are friendly. I'll be back.

I love Turkish food, so I was really happy that a Turkish Doner place opened near my home. Measured by the wonderful, cheap and delicious doner we have enjoyed in London and Germany this place is a bit of a disappointment. Turkish food in Europe seems to occupy the same niche that the Mexican taco place does in California. Abundant,... More

As my title suggests, the owners are quick to comment that theirs is a Turkish restaurant, not Greek. Well, for many of us, about 80% of their menu items seem pretty similar to those we've found in Greek restaurants, so it seems natural to analogize when asking questions. As first time Turkish restaurant goers, we asked how a doner differed... More
