by TonHvandenH

This small restaurant has a changing choice of a vew dishes every day and in the evening a small menu. But with excelent prepared and tasting Turkish meals. Situated in a local street, next to a well, a vegatablestore and a deralict Hammam it is a pleasure to eat there, while local children play and live goes on around you.
Evening diner starts with a selection you make from a plate with starter. Bread and water is free. And you choose your main dish. They serve a very good bottle of dry wine. But remember a bottle costs about the same as the whole meal! We found it worth it. But other beveriges are available.
Coffee, thee and/or melon as desert often isn't priced.
With friendly service, it really is a great experience

A bit spicy meat (lamb or chicken) in dough. Serverd in little slices around a portion of cucumber/yoghurt sauce, with vegtables.
Just try both. They have their own tasts.

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: EMINONU. Walk to the southend of the hippodrome. Go left and right, down Nakilbent Sk. Then 2nd on you right. It's just behind the old Hamami
