    The lentil soup comes with their homemade bread and is quite comforting and tasty on a chilly day or when you're sick. The Sigara Boregi and baklava variations are addictive as well.

    We visited this restaurant two times during our san francisco trip and everything was really so delicious 😋 We will definitely visit this restaurant again when we come to SF.

    Get the Kunefe. You will forget Baklava and every other dessert you have ever had.

    Lentil soup is pretty good. Given the lack authenticity of turkish restaurants in the area, I can say they are better than average. They served actual pide with the soup instead of pita!

    Excellent Turkish cuisine. The kofta plate, pides (pies) are a must. The baklava is always fresh, the rice pudding delicious and the service first class

    In case you didn't know (and I did not) the pides are a bit like pizzas, and the gozlemes are like quesadillas... So far everything I've tried has been quite good.

    Try the Chef's Meze Sampler - Wonderful variety of appetizers. Favorites were the smoky baba ganoush, dolmas, and tzaziki sauce. Plenty for three people to share.

    Try the Lamb And Beef Doner - Get it with the housemade pide bread and hot sauce. It's almost like you're in Germany! Only thing missing is the cheese.

    I've never been disappointed here. I usually get the lahmacun as an appetizer and split either the 34 or 40 plus the 57 with Tom. Make sure to watch the Turkish soap opera on the tv over the door.

    Get the lentil soup, not only because the soup is great, but you can eat more of that amazing bread they make here daily.
