There are some bad reviews for this small cafe restaurant. But the best way to experience it yourself. Food is nice and tasty.staff are warm friendly. Yes chicken doner ( shawarma) little bit dry because of cooking outside but still not bad.cold starter plate must try. Ayran ( Turkish traditional drink) is almost same with original taste. Prices are even cheaper with similar turkish restaurant in Jakarta where I live. I liked this place. I recommended.good taste good with friendly service and reasonable price.

This small, unassuming cafe on a back street hides a big secret - great food at a reasonable price! The Turkish breakast comes with olives, feta cheese, turkish bread, scrambled eggs, jam, fresh cucumber and tomato. All this for only RM16, including a decent cup of coffee or tea! Much better than some of the trendier options available in TTDI.

The cafe also sells a range of Turkish produce including pomegranate molasses, date syrup and real fruit jams.

Highly recommended - but don't tell too many people! ;)

I experienced good Turkish cuisine in Istanbul and this cafe can really come quite close.

The chicken kebab with rice is something for you to consider and so is the Turkish tea (served in a traditional glass).

The waiter was extremely friendly and even served a complimentary flass of tea, much to our delight!

I can't believe how this place has an average rating of 4.5 stars! The owner must have a large social network of relatives and friends. It's without a doubt one of the worst places that I have eaten at.

First of all, the food doesn't taste fresh. It seems pre-prepared and heated at the restaurant. The fact that they couldn't modify our order to make it more spicy further indicated that the food was not freshly prepared.

We ordered the falafel and spicy chicken adana wraps. And hot chocolate for drinks. I can't believe they have the gall to charge RM 9.50 for a cup of hot chocolate which is nothing but a packet of instant hot chocolate mixed with water. Speaking of water, they charge RM 1.50 if you want a glass of plain water.

The food itself besides obviously not being fresh also feels artificial. Especially the bread. I really had to struggle to finish the my wrap. The last few bites were literally tough to swallow. And for hours after your meal, you're left with an uncomfortable feeling like you've just eaten plastic or something equally artificial. If there is an opposite of wholesome, the food here is that!

And no, it's nowhere near authentic Mediterranean food in taste either. Sorely disappointed on so many levels. I almost never leave 1 star reviews on TripAdvisor, but this place thoroughly deserves it.
