This delightfully cozy yet elegant, white-tablecloth Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant is located in an old house in Rice Village. Their homemade pida bread is perfect with their zahter olive oil dip, and their meze platter is one of the best ever and a perfect way to try multiple appetizers. Turkish pizzas and gyros make for a light lunch, while the many different kinds of kebabs available from doner to shish and the national dish of Turkey, iskender, are all exceptionally tasty. All their desserts are homemade but the baked rice pudding and flan are wonderful.
