We dined there for the first time last night. Used Opentable, though they were not crowded on a Tuesday night- but nothing in Baltimore is crowded on a Tuesday.
Started with Imam Bayiladi "fainted priest" appetizer. Then had the Lahmacun- which had fantastic heat to it. For entrees, we had mixed kabob platter and manti- which was disappointingly bland after the heat of the Lahmacun "pizza". We took home baklava desserts and enjoyed them immensely. We'll be back and I recommend you get over there as fast as you can.
The decor was lovely, and the staff was young and attentive. This is a great downtown spot, and on-street parking is free after 6pm. What's not to love? Hey, if you don't go, that means more Lahmacun for me!

      I like it too. They have particularly good kofta, and the upstairs is beautiful and romantic. I think that's only open weekends, though.

        Dinner last night was excellent. The veg meze platter was tasty, and reminiscent of the buffet breakfasts available in Israel (yogurt, several different kinds of chopped tomato/cucumber, babaghanoush, hummus, etc.). I too had the Lahmacun, which was a heaping portion for maybe $9. We also had a tasty bottle of Turkish white wine. And there is free valet parking, at least on weekends. Finally, we had a 20% discount voucher from a show we caught at An Die Musik, making an already inexpensive restaurant even more so.

        Great looking menu and looks like a great lunch as well. Thanks.
