This place is defunct. Closed a long time ago. <br> It was pretty good but not exceptional. Ate there with the family once, several years ago. I like almost all Middle Eastern food but I, nor my family, was not inspired to return.

On Nov 1st this place changed to an Italian Restaurant. The meal we had was average to good (grilled salmon, rissotto). The staff were very attentive (first night). The bread and dipping were very good. But of course the question is how many Italian Restaurants can the peninsula support...

The decor and overall atmosphere were very good for a restaurant in downtown Redwood City. The staff were friendly and attentive. The entrees were very good, but flavor was somewhat overpowered by the taste of the abundant tomato sauce. The Turkish 7-up was quite interesting and tasty. Good enough for a return trip. :) :) :)

We were four; all had different entrees. The meat dishes were all tasty, though my excellent lamb cassarole was lukewarm, and a few pieces of lamb, though very tasty, could have been trimmed better. The pilaff was exquisite. The rice-pudding was excellent, as was the Efes imported pilsner. The place was half full; the service was a bit slow. It was very enjoyable but not really **** for us. However, if you like lamb and middle eastern food, definitely give it a try.

Excellent food and very friendly service: The meat is delicate, and the appetizers were excellent. Even the bread that is served initially was hot and soft..

A recent dinner was tasty. Found the lamb and combination plates to be good.

Turkey is far, far away. The food seems to be drowning in fat at this place. If I hadn't been sure I had ordered a guvec, I wouldn't have recognized what they served me as such. The lentil soup wasn't any better, unfortunately. The atmosphere of downtown RWC doesn't make this place more attractive, either.

If you want to know what restaurant food tastes like in Turkey all you have to do is visit EPHESUS. I lived in Turkey for a year and vividly remember how wonderful the food was from the masters of the Ottoman Empire. The balance of spices (spice trade went through the Ottoman Empire during the days of camel caravans bringing the spices to wealthy Europeans during the Renaisance. Parking is not that good at the restaurant but there is a lot behind the buildings across the street that is pretty good. This is great faire. Try it!

Inspired by the prior reviews, we went to the Ephesus and really enjoyed it. I had the mixed grill platter, so I could try one of everything and it was all very good. The lamb chop was extraordinary; it was lean, sweet and had that melt-in-your-mouth quality. They also have a decent selection of seafood and vegetarian dishes on the menu, so it should be easy to find something for everyone. Turkish red wine is very similar to dry red wines from Hungary and Bulgaria. I found it to complement the lamb very well. We will certainly be going back to try the grilled salmon with mushroom sauce.
