Turkish Delight in Fusionopolis

Since we have no knowledge on Turkish cuisine, we try to look at the photos on the menu and even used our smart phone to google on the names. No joke! But though we are supposed to have brunch here, we did not order any items listed under their 'Brunch' section. There are only three items listed (with photos) - Peynirli Borek, Pide Bread - Ekmek and Butter Rice. The portion looks small for the three of us, hence we decided to take a look at the main course and appetizer instead.

Doner Kebab Chicken ($8.00) is a simple wrap with lots of vegetables and tasty roasted chicken. It is a simple yet filling dish. Pretty good.

Pide with Lamb and Cheese ($13.90) looks unique to me. The lightly spiced tasty lamb was spread over the Pide and topped with cheese. It tasted delicious and better with the baby lettuce. The baby lettuce not only reduce and compliment the strong flavour of the dish, it gives additional crunchiness to the Pide which is a little wet due to the meat. Yummy!

For more info/photos, visit my blog. (I have problem uploading images here)

Best Turkish food in Sing

Best Turkish food in Singapore that I've found after more than a year of looking. Authentic favourites and good ingredients cooked the traditional way.

Nice, if you're not a kebab fan.

On Friday 16 May 2014, my colleagues and I went up to this cafe because downstairs was full up. So we were spillover customers. If you like doner kebab, maybe, just maybe, avoid this place. The set lunch is touted as something that comes with "green salad" and soup of the day. Turns out, what they meant by green salad is the ONE (1) romaine leaf on your kebab plate, topped with ONE (1) black olive, ONE (1) cherry tomato, and ONE (1) slice of onion. Uhh, I may be wrong, but I call that a plate garnish. With GST, a small doner kebab (with dried-out and too-salty chicken) comes up to $13.20, including the lettuce leaf and a small cup of instant mushroom soup. Arkadas is not too bad, if you are not a real kebab fan.

Amazing!!!

This place is a gem!!  We have going there for yrs! 
Almost every weekend.  Their soup of the day is always amazing. Tastes homemade and not those cream of c*** u get in other places.  These are made from scratch! 
Their kebab platter is what we always get and it's so worth the money.  They always taste top notch. Their lamb and cheese pide is so so sooo good!! 
Their tulumba and baklava are perfect.  We always get free turkish tea compliments of Chef Mustafa.  Oh and their breads are homemade and very delicious as well. 
We really love this restaurant.  Not fancy,  but the food is great and we always sit and talk for hours with tje tired chef just smiling. 

Definitely recommended! 

Oh and their breakfast is delicious as well!!!

Disappointing :(

I would not recommend this cafe at all. The much praised hummus is heavily laden with tahini you can hardly taste the chicpeas. The chicken kebab was awful. The meat was not fresh and leaves a bad after taste. Had to send it back. Friends who came along for dinner had to abandon their meals because it was just so terribly cooked! The staff were apologetic and acknowledged to the poor quality food. Their service was quiet but gracious. My advise to this cafe, get Gordon Ramsay in to show you a thing or two about decent food.
