Very solid mediterranean place

Hidden gem on Townsend and 8th street, one of the best that I’ve been in, go check for yourself.

Wild caught grilled Salmon fillet w/ an exotic blend of beans, rice & hummus

I loved the Salmon not fatty has very nice flavor, all in all it was so favorable, the tanginess, just so balanced

Konafa

Homemade dessert, they make it only Monday & Tuesday, awesome though

Family owned place

I frequent this place frim time to time for the last 9 years, l would say l’ve tried most of the items on the menu, what set this place from any other Turkish restaurants is the freshness of the food, cleanness of the place, waitstaff & really friendly and the are happy to answer all questions.

Lamb Shawerma

Love it

I’ve been here a few times, I wouldn’t have thought the food was entirely Turkish however given I’m not Turkish how would I know! The food is really good, I have not had a meal that hasn’t been really tasty. The wild Salmon a gorgeous and the meat dishes are cooked to perfection!

It’s quite reasonable prices for San Francisco, nice for a treat or special occasion. You can byo your own wine which makes it a little cheaper.

Great place

had the wild caught Salmon here with a ball of soup, great place for a date, business meeting or a casual dinner, I like their seating in the back, silk pillows with Moroccan round tables, very knowledgeable staff and nice music.

Tips
  • Med plates here come a bit pricier than usual, which means your bill is slightly hefty for lunch, but more in line with what one would expect to pay for dinner.
  • All meat is halal (ritually approved by Islamic law).
