This place is our Thursday night special. It has half price meals including the menu show stopper, a Turkish style mixed grill. This could so easily be a bunch of cheap cuts cooked badly, instead it is a super tasty array of good stuff. There is a fillet of beef, Turkish spicy sausage, chicken and even a lovely cut of...

I love the food here. Very relaxed atmosphere as it's on the outside of the market. The staff are friendly and unobtrusive. The gozleme is to die for! Reasonably priced as well. Highly recommend for a casual bite on a market day.

Me and my wife decided to go South Melbourne Saturday market and ended up in Koy when we felt peckish. Oh boy am I glad we did. Sat outside tables, very busy ordered about 5 entry size plates (about 10$ each) to share between two of us plus gozleme when we got the chance we got from gozleme stand, queue... More

Had a late lunch. We had absolutely delicious homemade hummus followed by feta saganaki cheese with a honey orange marinade then sprinkled with sesame seeds - so creamy and so yum. We then headed outside and grabbed some of the yum thin Turkish bread filled with: 1. Spinach and cheese 2. Chicken and herbs 3. Spiced Mince meat All served... More

We enjoyed our lunch very much. Bloody Mary - got a major kick to it. Baked eggs - soft and tasty. Grilled Octopus - very tender. Vegetable Pilaf - fluffy, seasoned just right. Unfortunately, can't remember the name of our favorite dish. It was a lunch special with goat meat with various vegetable. There's a tortilla like bread you use... More

We are simple diners and this restaurant provided us with a perfect lunch. Tasty gozleme x 2 from the hardworking ladies in the gozleme 'hut' were just enough for the two of us. A couple of glasses of rose' and the world is a happy place. Busy but efficient service makes your wait short. Enjoy the bustling ambiance.

Hands down the best place for gozleme in Melbourne.The goz stand is always busy even on non-market days. They also have a great a la carte Turkish breaky and lunch menu. We eat here several times a month - great for a quick weekend breaky/lunch. Service for dine-in can be hit & miss so we generally get our gozleme to... More
