Profile

The interior of this Turkish restaurant isn't much to look at—its harsh fluorescent lights and drab wallpaper are reminiscent of a dreary high school classroom—but the throngs of diners crowding the room aren't here for the atmosphere. The food is enough of a draw to pack the place: cold appetizers like pan-fried eggplant with yogurt sauce and the gazpacho-esque spicy ezme salad are terrific, but they pale in comparison to the decadent fried pastrami, sliced razor thin like bresaola and served over warm, buttery hummus so mild it could almost be mistaken for mashed potatoes. The Beyti kebab, a grilled skewer of ground lamb, garlic, and peppers served with a pile of raw slivered onions, is a savory explosion of flavor. Classic doner kebab, sliced thin and crispy over a bed of toasted pita and covered in a tangy yogurt sauce, has a sneakily addictive taste. The friendly but brisk service efficiently moves the crowds in and out of the dining room; next door, a newer (and better appointed) banquet room accommodates large groups with prix-fixe options.
