Ankara Restaurant Review

: Big, beautiful and bustling, this Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant draws folks in to enjoy its rather lengthy selection of dishes: hot and cold mezze, yogurt soups, cheese- or sausage-topped flatbreads, grilled kebabs and more. At dinnertime, entrée selections include seared branzino, ali nazik (puréed eggplant with lamb cubes), and a braised lamb shank. To complement the meal, there is a range of Turkish wines as well as those from Europe and California. Desserts hold a special attraction. From baklava to a Turkish rice pudding, paired with Turkish teas or coffees, patrons can conclude their Mediterranean meal in style.
