Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30
A buzzing slice of Turkey in the middle of Wellington, this trusted, family run restaurant has been dishing up authentic Turkish flavours for more than 24 years.
Open the door and step straight into the rich world of Istanbul. Sip a Turkish coffee on a bed of plush, traditional cushions covered in colourful fabric, while admiring the elaborate wall hangings.
The menu also captures the essence of Turkey while supporting Kiwi businesses by using only the freshest local ingredients. Try a pasha kebab made from succulent New Zealand lamb and lightly seasoned vegetables from the local veggie market, served alongside seasonal salad and tangy homemade yoghurt.
In the mood for something lighter? Opt for the famous vegetarian guvech, baked with tasty cheese and served with bulghur pilav (Turkish style cooked wheat) and jajeek dip.
With Halal, vegan and gluten-free options, there's something sensational for everyone to sink their teeth into.
Drinks wise, choose to bring your favourite tipple (it's BYOB) or round off your meal with a Turkish tea, served on a beautiful silver platter.
