    Another great dinner at Pera. Starter:the Pera Meze Platter, yum! Entrees: Bird Nest, Mousakka, grilled Salmon and Talas Boregi. All delicious and what a beautiful night to dine outside. Great service

    Authentic Turkish cuisine, not a very big menu selection but everything we tried 😘.Best to go with a group & share family style. Only thing missing was authentic Turkish coffee.

    The food is exactly like the food in Turkey. Tried mezes, manti and kunefe. Everything was yummy. Plus great turkish tea&coffee.Give it a try if you like mediterranean food.

    You should try Iskender and lentil soup. If you are a sweet tooth, I recommend baklava or apricot dessert. They are awesome!

    Great outdoor seating and delicious food. Try the kofte and white bean small plates and moussaka and iskender for large plates.

    Try the Iskender. Delicious! The fava salata is great too. The baklava is nutty and not too sweet.

    Tried the lamb burger for lunch, good taste but lots of crunchy weird bits in the meat!I should have tried the kebab instead.

    The mousakka was quite hearty and tasty and piyaz gigantes (giant white beans?) was weird looking but pretty darn tasty.

    Surprisingly quiet for having such good food. I recommend the Bird's Nest as a yummy vegetarian option.

    If you bring a date, ask for the rear corner table. Great atmosphere in this place. Food rocked.

    Mousakka is my favorite. Some dishes in the menu mentioned as greek but in real turkish they are.

    Solid Turkish food. Tiger shrimp, hummus, and the wine selection is good. They have ½ off wine bottles on select days.

    you'll need to bring your own booze, and they won't charge you a corkage fee which is nice. There's also a corner store nearby open late

    İnanılmaz yavas servis sinir olabilirsiniz beklerken. Sadece kahvaltı tabagı için 1 saat bekliyorsunuz. Servis kötü
