    When we arrived to the restaurant they said they couldn’t find our reservation, but very quickly they gave us a table anyway. Excellent food and service.

    We had a very nice dinner, started with mezes, then had some kebap’s, which were delicious. The desert (katmer) with çay was a good ending to our dinner. As a Turkish person grown up in Turkey, I would say this place prepares Turkish food that is very close to what you can eat in good ‘grill’ restaurants in Turkey, so compliments.

    The food was absolutely delicious. I like that they go around with a selection of their starters and you can pick some straight away. The main dishes came very quickly and tasted great. The service was mediocre. We never received the water we ordered but they tried to charge us for it and no one came by to offer us another drink or take away the empty plates. The tables are VERY close to each other. Don’t go there if you expect privacy during your dinner.

    I've been here a number of times, and I always have a great evening. I love the food, the friendly service, the location. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Amsterdam.

    The best meal I have had in such a long time, that you end up forgetting the long wait and scattered service. I highly recommend this place for great Turkish food, just be patient on the service as trust me, totally worth the wait!

    Booked through TheFork, but they didn't want to give us our seats. Sent back and forward. Waiters very rude and impatient. Asked for our drinks multiple times. Forgot starters before main course. Spilled all the oil over the table during cleanup and used my tissue to just spread it all out over the table.. For this price, it was a ridiculous experience. They were much better before.

    Ate here New Year’s Eve, arrived at reservation time and obviously accept it was very busy that evening but once finishing our main was left for 20 minutes awaiting a member of staff to get a menu for desserts then waited another 15 minutes to order. In the end we decided to get the bill and leave. Food was very good and worth the money but the service was a complete let down on the evening

    It was clearly a very awful experience for my group during new years eve. We made a reservation a few days prior to the date itself, only to find an arrogant waiter putting us off. He told us that new year eve booking are not accepted through thefork, in a rude and pressing manner to get us out of the premise. If that was the case, shouldn't the restaurant inform us earlier that they will not be accepting online reservation? Would definitely recommend the management team to take a look into this matter.

    Even though I reserved a table through the fork the restaurant couldn’t see the reservation in the system so we had to wait 15 minutes to get the table. Service was really okay, we didn’t even finish the starters that the waitress took our dishes while I was literally eating and brought the main dishes. We had to ask 3 times for the bread and waited a long time for the tea. Overall overpriced place

    Very good but couldn’t trace my Fork booking on arrival. Seated quickly though, friendly people, slightly understaffed I’d say when we visited. Overall very good but I think three cold starters would have been more suited for two people (i’m thinking tapas here). Priced fairly for what we had.

    this was my 2nd time there; the service was initially quite slow, we waited more than 10 mins for drinks; the starter was als served a bit later and instead of 4 starters they served 3. then it got better, we got a make up starter. the food was good; great starters, Turkish pizza and baklava.
