This place is outstanding! The moment I arrived I was greeted and given a table and a menu. The waitress was warm and humorous. My favorite dish is simple--the hummus, not too much garlic, perfect amount of lemon, and the garbanzo bean puree is definitely underpriced for the portion size. -- Jim M.
Taxim Cafe is my go-to restaurant when I have time for lunch. They prepare the food quickly but with care. I love going with co-workers or friends so we can try a sample of all the appetizers. The Falafels are flavored and crisped to perfection! -- Diana B.
Having family from Turkey, I know exactly what Turkish flavor tastes like. I was very skeptical about this place at first. I couldn't believe the authenticity behind the menu. I love baklava and turkish coffee in the mornings, and at Taxim, I can travel back to Turkey without packing my bags. -- Carl A.
