ERCIYES
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
Erciyes has been going strong for 30 years in the same spot, with the same family for over 25 years. Take away is the best and healthiest around however the main dining room is packed every Friday and Saturday nights when belly dancers wow patrons as they dine on authentic Turkish fare. Erciyes appears deceptively small from the outside, yet the dining room (with walls adorned with Turkish artworks and curiosities) seats 150.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Stop by Erciyes Restaurant (the "c" is pronounced as a "g") on a Friday or Saturday night and you're likely to find a lively room packed with people sampling the authentic Turkish food on offer and taking in the live belly dancing shows. Taking its name from Mount Erciyes, the highest mountain in Anatolia, this Surry Hills restaurant has been around for 20 years and heralded the arrival of Turkish cuisine in Sydney. The dining room (with walls adorned with Turkish artworks and curiosities) seats 150, creating a very merry atmosphere when the restaurant is full.

The menu is filled with all sorts of tempting morsels. If you have trouble deciding and you're dining in a group of four or more, the banquet menu is the best option. Most popular is the smorgasbord of Turkish delights including mixed dips, garden salad, Greek salad, meat and vegetarian pides, Iskender kebabs, a mixed grill, mixed dessert, and tea or coffee all for only $45 per person. If your appetite doesn't quite warrant such a feast, try the popular lamb shish grill served with rice, garden salad and Turkish bread followed by baklava or Turkish delight. After dinner, show your skills or lack thereof and kick up your heels on the dance floor.

Late in the night I'm sometimes tempted to pop into Erciyes on Cleveland Street for a Turkish pide or kebab.
