    Mazza plate is awesome. Best eggplant, hummus and bread ever. It's as good as food in Turkey itself.

    They do not like splitting up the bill. We had a party of 6 and they said they did not have enough time to split it because it was lunch time and they were busy. I think it was just total laziness.

    Ben döner yedim enfesti. Çorbası ve adana kebabını da denedik. Harika tatlar. Devasa su getiriyorlar ve para almıyorlar. Türk yemeklerini özLeyenler için müthiş bir yer.
