Good and unique food, very friendly service and warm ambience.
Always like their kunefe, tasty and nice, other dishes too!
Unexpected place to find a nice restaurant. Food was affordable and delicious. Would go again.
The food is good! I liked everything I’ve tried so far after 2 visits. Must try the pide, it’s good as a sharing dish for big groups.
Second time around. The food was as fantastic as ever. Although I prefer the beef over lamb. Salty Aryan is a pleasant surprise. Service was very prompt and friendly. Would visit again should cravings come again. :)
Authentic Turkish food! The owner is friendly and treated us to pomegranate juice at the end of our meal. Must try their “slice of heaven” dessert. It ain’t that sweet yet very fragrant! Highly recommended

Kunefe is so delicious! The place just opened so they are trying to get a hang of things but food is really worth and authentic!
amazing chef.. delicious meals! and great quality Ahmet chef rocks.. f
This is as authentic a turkish restaurant as you can get here in Singapore. We started with hummus and pita bread, one of the smoothest hummus I have had, with a nice melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Rich, but not as garlicky as I would have liked it to be. We then had Hünkar Beğendi, which is made from eggplant grilled until the skin is burned, giving it a smoky flavour. The eggplant is puréed, seasoned, and thickened with béchamel sauce. The mixture is then topped with cubes of beef (although the traditional version uses lamb). Simply divine and a snap recommend. After that we had beyti lamb, which is ground lamb grilled on a skewer and served wrapped in lavash and topped with tomato sauce and yogurt, and a sprinkling of pistachio along with chili peppers. Very hearty but with a little too much gameyness which may not sit well with the Singaporean palate. The best dish for me was the dessert, künefe. I expected a frozen-then-reheated version topped up with syrup, but instead got a very impressive rendition that is as authentic as realistically possible in Singapore. Let me explain how difficult it is to make this fresh. First, you need semi-soft cheese such as Urfa peyniri (cheese of Urfa) or Hatay peyniri (cheese of Hatay), made of raw milk, to use in the filling. The cheese used here comes from maraş, which is where the chef comes from. In making the künefe, the kadayıf (kadayerv) is not rolled around the cheese; instead, cheese is put in between two layers of wiry kadayıf. It is cooked in small copper plates, and then served very hot in syrup with clotted cream (kaymak) and topped with pistachios or walnuts. It is not possible to find kaymak here because it is usually taken super fresh from the farms, so they imported krema instead, and the result was still very nice as krema and kaymak are very similar. They also import their own turkish wines - for reds, the classic blend of Boğazkere and Öküzgözü is present, as is Kalecik Karası from Ankara. For white, a blend of Emir (from Cappadocia) and Narince (from Tokat). If you are ordering a bunch of meats like most diners seem to be doing, order the Öküzgözü-Boğazkere blend. These are the two native grape varieties of Elazığ province, located on the Anatolian plateau at the north of the Taurus Mountains. Dark berries mingle freely with herbaceous balsamic notes. Acidity high and tannins can be a bit biting, but would be softened when paired with for example an Iskender Kebap. The restaurant imports their own wine, so support them if you can!
Food was super! Kunefe was the best among those I tried in Singapore, sweetness was just right and the cheese of good texture. Restaurant staff was very friendly too.
It’s highly reviewed and definitely should be for the attention to food and the customers. Some food items were amazing, some alright. Would definitely recommend the pizza, it’s very filling as well, and Kunefe which is very different from the others we tried. Dips and bread are excellent as well. The owner and main chef is very friendly and makes visits to greet and talk with customers.
