Our restaurant offers traditional central/eastern Turkish cuisine. We are family operated. Our menu choices are prepared directly on site, with a particular emphasis on freshness, and producing the many flavors native to the Anatolian region. Come and observe the performance in our open kitchen, as we prepare fresh bread throughout the day. We are excited to bring our cuisine to Palo Alto, a very vibrant and interesting community. Many of our customers are international, working here, and living far from home, and have expressed their appreciation for the authentic menu that we offer.
The owner, Dino Tekdemir, is excited to be here, having worked the past ten years in restaurants, up to the management level. He knows his food and understands excellent wine choices. Everything is homemade, from the dolma to the bread and the Anatolian manti, prepared ravioli style.
Mr. Tekdemir and family come from Diyarbakir, Turkey. He is happy to be here, and desires to take an interest in the local community. It seems that running a restaurant is definitely a full-time endeavor, but he hopes to take time out to promote youth soccer in the community. Come and enjoy.
