"Family Brookline Restaurant Turkish Cuisine"

The name is a goofy mouthful, but the food was a great surprise. It occupies what looks like an old pizza and grinder joint at 305 Washington St. in Brookline village. They have made some effort to spiff up the interior although overhead flourescent lighting in the rear holds it back significantly.

Menu includes most of the great Turkish appetizers and kebabs -- plus, oddly, American grinder joint fare like burgers and mozarella sticks.

We designed our own mezze from an assortment of appetizers. Quality was top notch, accompanied by warm Turkish flat bread.

Not much ambience but there aren't enough Turkish places in town and this really hit the spot without leaving the wallet noticeably lighter.
