sembol restaurant

Reviewed By Nichola C - Mugla, Turkey

Obviously a well known place in town having expanded from a small 'do it yourself' place we remember from 15 years ago.
We preferred it how it was but pleased for them that they could develop their business.
Shame however they didn't keep the original concept.
The spicy chicken was tasty but the liver not so much; sumak was missing from the onion salad and accomplishments weren't on the table.

We went there for lunch. It was pleasent to sit outside shaded by a roof. The service was fast and the food was tasty. We especially liked the BBQ meat with eggplant. It is centrally located within 5 minutes from the Urfa Bazaar.

Cevahir han restaurant

Reviewed By erolys - london

This restaurant, which is situated in a vandalized historical building, although it pretends to be a restaurant with an attitute, it is certainly not. The quality of kebabs is certainly poor. It is a pity that traditional kebabs are also vandalized like buildings and turned into examples of fast food. Local dishes are somewhat lacking flavour and aromas. Nothing special about the mezes. The service is hectic. In short it is certainly disappointing place.

Gulhan Restaurant

Reviewed By Bardangas - Athens

Clean, well lit, no women at dinner than evening (July 28 I think) at least on the ground floor (20-21.00 the time). Waiting was articulate, somehow maestoso non-english speaking but the food, the carbonated beverages and the 'Erikli Su' water at the appropriate temperature. The food, a 'peaceful selection' since one of us had 'mild stomach apprehension': Urfa kebab (exquisite, soft, balanced, not muttony-meaty), carrots, potatoes, bamia, rice yellow and white were excellent. Portions are not sumptuus, soda comes in pharmaceutical mini bottle but still.
The cenrtally but discreetly positioned restaurant was the best that we had for our first 9 days of driving inside eastern anatolia cum Urfa- Kayseri + Konia
Value for money was good, not a bargain and the provider was specific in the billing.
Beware of synoptic references that are popular from the supply side very often in Turkey. Ask for a proper receipt. It is good even as an 'ephemera; souvenir.

Reviewed By Stacy L F - Istanbul, Turkey

After a long day of driving and touring Gobekli Tepe and Harran, this is the perfect end to a Turkish day. Urfa is well known for it's spicy kebabs and I was not disappointed. I had recommend the grilled lamb kebab. They serve up several condements such as grilled peppers and a spicy pepper sauce. It was my first try at Ayran, which is a handmade, frothy, cold yogurt drink that tames the heat of the kebab.

Edessa Kunefe Salonu

Reviewed By Grant M - Sydney, Australia

This was nice especially as after a couple of weeks, we really did not want to eat another kebab (after all, we have excellent kebabs in Sydney, where we live!). So, this restaurant offered more variety, plus the view of the evening Ramadan crowds shopping, strolling and generally milling about in the relative cool of the night. The food was abundant and not cheap. But it was a good change Service was friendly and attentive.

It was really hot with delicious taste. Don't forget to drink ayran with your meal, otherwise you can get in trouble with hot, if you're not used to eat hot taste. I've tried marinated chicken and lamb meat and it was really dainty.

Sevgi Ciger Salonu

Reviewed By LittlePoSurrey - Surrey

A local contact took colleagues and I to this restaurant at about 5pm on Saturday, The restaurant is in a large building with a high roof which made for an authentically Anatolian atmosphere. Grilled meats are the speciality - the liver, lamb and chicken were superb and served in durum (like tortilla or wraps) with salad and bread. Service was brisk and the food was delivered to the table in a matter of minutes. This restaurant was amongst the best I have visited in Turkey - the food, atmosphere, price and service were superb. Do not miss when visiting fabulous Urfa!
