Service
 
A “reliable neighborhood place” , this Upper Eastsider “always delivers” ( “just like the mailman” ) with “solid” Turkish fare and live music several nights a week; when it's “crowded” the “pleasant” service can be “lacking” , and the space could use a “makeover” , but “totally reasonable” tabs save the day.

Here’s a fantastic neighborhood place serving delicious Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine with a flair. They have friendly, attentive, and quick staff to handle busy times. The bar area is handled masterfully by Natalia and the owner, Suleman is around to make sure you’re having the best experience. Turkish music and belly dance entertainment on Thursday nights is an absolute must see if you’re in the area or looking for places in Upper East. Hummus is great, and the usual Mediterranean dishes are sublime. There was a grilled octopus dish a friend ordered (not sure the name) that was hands down one of the best things I’ve tasted. Enjoy

I went to this location on a Saturday In March 2018 for my sisters birthday dinner; it was great. Hummus was good, bread was awesome, drinks strong! Lovely and attentive staff. I will definitely come back.

Delicious food, friendly service. I have eaten here a few times. It is consistently good. Tonight there was live Turkish music, which created a festive vibe.
