I went to this cafe last night for my friend's Birthday. I had a great time. I enjoyed the authentic atmosphere. The Belly Dancer was great. I am sure that I will come back again.

If you are looking for a place with a great atmosphere, definitely come here. There's a belly dancer that dances with fire on her head, hookah, great cultural music and fun. You'll be dancing the night away. The decor is beautiful and it's cool to sit on the floor with comfy pillows!

this is a turkish restaurant that has a great bar, outdoor seating, and, the best part: the restaurant area. comfy pillows to sit on all around knee-high tables in darkened rooms make for a great atmosphere to eat some yummy mediterranean food, smoke some hookah, drink turkish coffee and watch bellydancers. and there's valet parking when the place gets busy.

My friends introduced me to this place as they know I love to smoke hookah. The place is cool with lots of floor seating. The hookah was nice. It took me back to my days in middle East. The staff was nice and friendly. I shared a platter of mixed grill with my friend. The food was okay, nothing special.... More

The food is mediocre Turkish food, nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is pleasant, kind of folksy. The good part is when the belly dancer comes out. On our visit, she was beautiful and talented and offset the mediocrity of the food. If you don't mind a sexy woman in an abbreviated costume gyrating in front of your ten-year... More

Good music. Horrible staff We made a reservation for two people for 10:00 PM and the staff completely disregarded our reservation and we did not get the seats on the floor. After settling for a table, the waiter took 35 minutes to take our order. The hookah wasn't set properly either. Overall, a horrible experience. Very unprofessional and chaotic atmosphere.... More

We went for an office party. We were on time. The person who was at the front had written the name of the host wrong. We were seated on the floor with cushions. Soon our host arrived and told the management that he had booked a room with tables. We were a party of about 12 to 14 people.The drinks... More

This was a really fun place. When we got there, we were a little apprehensive about the lack of lighting and guests. We decided to kick back and relax and give it a try. Turned out to be a lot of fun. Good service, great food and a good time. The place soon packed out and the belly dancer put... More
