“Perfect Friday Treat!”

“Came here today with 5 co-workers. We pre-ordered so our food would be here on time. Considering I’ve never had Turkish before I have now fallen in love. The food was to die for. I had a chicken shish with rice. The salad was beautiful and the seasoned bread is my new fave! Will definitely be coming back here soon. Thanks for a great meal.”
