Came across this small restaurant while walking across from Sky City. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We ordered the set menu with a large shared variety starter and two entrees. All of it was great. On Friday and Saturday night there is a belly dancer at 8 pm. The restaurant had several table setups for larger... More

The menu was typical of any Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant, but it was all done very well, and we were very satisfied with our meal. As we were there on a Monday they had a special offer of two dishes (main + dessert or starter) for 25$, which was great value. Service was highly efficient and friendly. It's central location makes it... More

Found this place while just wandering around in the city and in so glad we did! Probably the best turkish food I've ever had! The interior was beautiful, the staff were very polite (something you unfortunately don't see too much in New Zealand I've noticed). I couldn't fault this place on anything.

I had dinner with dessert here. The chicken dinner I had was great and dessert was from anothert earth! The cheesecake was one of the best I've ever had! They do also have free WIFI. I do highly reccommend this place!

I went here for dinner and they had a combo special going on. I must admit the service we received was superb. The staff were extremely friendly and looked after us. We ordered our entrée and were delighted by how quickly it was served. The food was soft, tender and fresh. We were only in Auckland for a short time... More

The welcome was warm and friendly with drinks order taken and served quickly. The decor is very interesting with lots of interesting items on display. The food is all cooked to... More
