Very good service the place was clean and food was excellent. The name is a little misleading, its not a Kebab shop, like you find in a college town. Its a nice charming place with a really good menu.

Attended a birthday dinner here as our first visit. Went Hungary but left very satisfied-and full. Very Plesant waitress who willingly helped us make our selections, did not hurry us, and even provided a complementary dessert to the birthday celebrant large enough so we all...More

This place is just straight up awesome. Get some lavash and Turkish salsa with your kebab, or the sample platter if you can't decide.

My friend who lives in Essex Juntion had never been to this restaurant and really enjoyed the food. We shared the mixed starters - a delicious mix of dips with piping hot flatbread as well as the main dishes. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Turkish food is a true fusion of many different cultures, a collage of different cuisines so to speak. Turkey, geo-physically located as a bridge between Europe and Asia, has been a melting pot of many civilizations since the beginning of history. Once the land of Hittites and the Greeks, it later became the home of the Turks, a nomadic peoples. Therefore, its cuisine is not only a collage of all the cultures that lived in Turkey throughout history, but also a collage of cuisines from all the lands Turks lived before settling in what was then called Asia-Minor. Today's Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Turkic, Ottoman, Greek, Persian, Arabic, Lebanese, and Armenian cooking that can be defined as a true and unique Mediterranean food experience. Turkish food, as most Mediterranean food, relies heavily on appetizers called "mezes" and especially the freshest of ingredients. Although it has many meat specialties, it is predominantly based on fresh vegetables. Therefore, it offers a perfect combination of vegetarian and meat dishes, appealing to a broad spectrum of the eating public.
