Do not go with Mehmet. HE STEALS FROM TOURISTS. He charged us 400 Turkish Lira ON TOP of our already paid accommodation. He invents trumped up charges: he gives no receipt, has no bill and doesn't explain the charges. 400 Lira is a lot--it is 200 dollars! This does not include accommodation. When we told him we did not want to tip him more than 300 he threatened us! He said he will call the police--and the police would not listen to tourists who don't speak the language.
The restaurant is across the street from the Kommagene Hotel where our Mt Nemrut tour started. The tour organizer recommended the restaurant. We kind of hesitated when walking in and seeing no customers. The restaurant was kind of plain looking local eating place, like a diner or cafeteria. But we had no other choice so just ordered pre-cooked dishes, baked eggplants and beef stews since we don;t want eat lamb so no kebabs. To our surprise, the baked eggplants stuffed with beef and tomatoes were extremely tasty, because they were slow cooked at low temperature for long time and the flavors and grease were thoroughly baked into eggplants. This is the best eggplant dish we ever had throughout our Turkey trip. We had tried similar dishes in other cities but nothing compares to this. Through waiter's translation, we told the chef that this was the best eggplant dish we ever had, and he was very happy to hear that. We refer this restaurant as "Sofrasi", later realized that its full name is Kahta Sofrasi. And in Turkish, Sofrasi means supper.
Before coming to Adiyaman I thought that I won't be able to eat a good food here after Gaziantep where has the best food in Turkey and maybe in the world. But this place changed this totally.I've had one of the best dinners in my life. The salads the serve are very tasty and different. It is a bit far from the center but it is worth both for the food and the lake view.
