Turkish in Newtown & the Inner West

Hidden by the vintage pink-and-purple facade of a '60s hair salon, this sophisticated exploration of traditional Istanbul dishes is excellent. The handsomely tiled downstairs bar area is a sociable spot for a shot of raki and some delicious share plates, or head upstairs for more formal dining. Flavours are intense, with an emphasis on Mediterranean seafood and charcoal-grilled meats.
