This place is a complete embarrassment to the Turkish culture. I was referred to go here for "great Turkish food," as I haven't found an authentic Turkish restaurant in Los Angeles. I went here with a friend, the place was empty. When we opened their menu, it had about 3 authentic Turkish Dishes, then the rest were either Asian or American dishes. We ordered the lahmacun, hummus, Lamb Kebab and Manti. The Lahmacun was mushy, and folded into a pocket. This is NOT how it's supposed to be made. It's supposed to be crisp and flat, not folded. The hummus was so thick we couldn't even dip the pita in it, we had to use a fork. The manti was pretty ok, but the dough was hard. The service here is TERRIBLE. It took 30 minutes for the server to bring the bill. I finally had to get up TWICE to walk up to her and tell her that I needed the bill immediately. What a shame.... I can't believe they have the audacity to claim themselves as an authentic Turkish restaurant. DO NOT go here.

I love walking into a club and knowing there will always be a familiar face somewhere. They have great monthlies (yay Freeform!) and Flip-for-Fridays makes for a fun & cheap night out.

I love this place and always try and go when I am in NYC but the funny thing is that I would probably hate it if it were in San Francisco. The main thing I like is the music, which is alway good. The reason I love it in NYC and would hate it in SF is that: - The bar staff is pure New York, they yell at everyone, are too busy to talk and are generally rude - The place get so crowded that you can hardly move and a table for 4 is about the size of a dinner plate - I have to duck to get into the bathroom (I'm tall). It is disgusting dirty and if you are "standing" a person needs to rub against your back to get into the one stall So what's not to love? It provides the quintessential New York experience with great music. Oh yeah, the crowd is mellow and unpretentious. That saves the place.
