Authentic Turkish Cuisine

Chicken Shish

Chicken Shish (Şiş Tavuk) is a classic Turkish kebab that is found all over the Middle East, with its roots in Syria and the Persian Empire. Our succulent chicken shish is cooked in the traditional Turkish way, with our special herb and spice mix.


Iskender kebap is one of the most well-known dishes of northwestern Turkey. You can choose from tender lamb, chicken or adana with a yogurt and tomato sauce, served on cubes of bread.


Salmon is known as the king of fish and something of a superfood as it is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Our fillet of Salmon is grilled on charcoal to perfection and served with salad and chips.
