One of the rarest authentic Turkish and Mediterranean food and menu in New Jersey. Excellent food; appetizers, main courses and deserts. Friendly stuff and excellent location and outdoor diner.

All of the food here is delicious, fresh and reasonable priced. The outdoor seating is a nice touch as well. The chicken kabobs are fantastic, as are the hummus, falafel and baklava.

This resturant will always be in my mind as it was reasonably priced and has great service. The server and others were all very nice and helpful, not just in selecting food which was delicious and filling as well but helping to understand the area.
