Celebrate life at Konak
Konak Turkish restaurant in Philadelphia used to be my favorite weekend place to go. I have wonderful memories of the time I spent there.

There, your ears will take pleasure in the sounds of Turkish music, your eyes will dance to the sites of family heirlooms of the Atay family, and your taste buds will delight in the award winning traditional Turkish cuisine.

Walls are draped in an intriguing array of handmade family heirlooms of needlepoint, cast-iron candleholders, and wood framed mirrors. Hookahs, intricately engraved antique teapots and lamps line the end tables and windows. Cozy sofas are lined with brightly-colored embroidered satin pillows.
