Traditional Turkish fare with a modern Australian twist is what's on offer at this sprawling, laidback Crows Nest eatery. The bulk of the menu is inspired by the recipes of the owner's mother. For breakfast, think Yengen toast, a toastie with traditional Turkish cheese, chorizo and tomato. There is also a build your own option or a set breakfast banquet menu which is great for groups.

Lunch sees a mixture of dips, salads, rolls and plates all featuring traditional Turkish fare, while dinner sees more large meze plates featuring seafood, lamb and chicken. Some Turkish wines are available as well as Efes beer and a selection of local and imported beers on tap. Dessert is a must and regularly features poached pears, Turkish ice cream and baklava, with a different dessert special of the day, too.
