Came here by chance after a long day walking around the beautiful Waiheke Island. We were two starving college kids looking for a fresh meal at a reasonable price -- not easy to find. We actually could only afford the lunch menu here, but the...More

This was a quick walk from my hotel and my first time sampling Turkish food. Dinner was outstanding. I ate until I was stuffed and I only ordered a main course (Iskender) and dessert. Restaurant staff was friendly and attentive.

Simple café style venue but with very good Turkish food. Easy to get a gluten free meal. Staff are friendly and helpful and prices are very reasonable. Worth a visit if you like Turkish food. Easy to find opposite Sky Tower.

Great quick service. Too much to choose from on the menu but the Iskender was divine. Great tasting the Turkish beer Efes. One night a week they have a belly dancer which ticks the authenticity box! Book first so you are not disappointed.
