We received bread, but was barely enough for four people and when I ordered the trio of spreads , bread was not brought out with it. Not one to eat hummus with my fingers or utensils. Asked and bread was brought out quickly.

This time we were there at prime time, and the place was packed both inside and outdoors. Consequently, the decibel level was really high -- nearly impossible to hold a conversation at our table. While the food was at its usually high standards, the staff was clearly stressed; selections came out at odd times and one of our party had to task for the rice pilaf they had ordered twice. Very unusual for them. We will return to going at off-peak hours ;)

Cheese is a bit salty, but still delicious. My favorite desser is the Apricot delight and my wife’s is the sutlac which is a Turkish way of making rice putting. When I bring the sutlac home, we put some cinnamon powder on it. Adds a nice touch to the flavor

The staff is friendly, helpful but not intrusive. The food was superb: the dolmas were absolutely the best we have ever had anywhere! One of us had the Moussaka as an entree and declared it delicious. I have the Manti and it was spectacular -- creamy, yet not cloying, with an amazing sauce that was both calming (yogurt based) and yet peppy! Rice pudding for dessert. I just cannot say enough good things about this gem. I just wish they had a sister restaurant in Annandale! Thank you, Yayla, for such a delightful experience.

Not as busy as it used to be, which is nice ... I hope the restaurant is doing enough business to do well financially. It's moderately priced. Great place to eat.
