Useful information


This place is fit for a king. The interior is drop-dead gorgeous with a can’t-stop-staring décor. From its honeycomb patterns on the walls and that large mural of the Hagia Sophia, to its whitewashed walls with glimmering deep-blue pendants, this restaurant brings a little bit of Istanbul to the Mt. Vernon Triangle.Sip a cool apple-rose tea while perusing the menu of Turkish cuisine infused with a modern bent. Kirmizi mercimek corbasi is a refreshing red lentil soup that starts things off right. Then dive in to thinly sliced and delicious lamb and beef kebabs. But it’s the moussaka, with its supple eggplant, potato slices and cinnamon-scented lamb, that must not be skipped. Freshly baked baklava or Noah’s pudding ends the meal on a syrupy note. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
