Tulip - Turkish food in Great Neck

I finally had a chance to try Tulip in Great Neck this weekend. I had heard good things, but I'm generally not a huge fan of this type of food, so it took a while to make it to the top of the list. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. My wife and I had the Greek salad, which was fresh and tasty, served I think with kasheri cheese instead of feta, which I didn't mind at all. My wife then had the Sultan's delight, whcih was a sort of lamb stew served over a puree of eggplant and kasheri cheese. I was skeptical of the puree but it was excellent and I would have licked the plate had the restaurant been a bit darker. I had the spicy lamb kebab with was very juicy lamb seasoned with red pepper and served with a hot sauce for dipping. It wasn't killer hot, but it was delicious.

I've been to places like Colbeh, which I realize is the cuisine of one country over, and I'm always disappointed. I find the food dry and needing a sauce, and I'm not impressed with the hot sauce that is available. Tulip, however, addressed this problem nicely.

We're looking forward to going back and trying some more entrees and appetizers.
