Meyhane literally means ‘drinking house’ in old Turkish, yet is traditionally closely linked to eating and socialising.

The restaurant opened its doors early this year. Being of Turkish origin herself, owner Muus missed a spot in the Netherlands that offered high-quality Turkish cuisine and hospitality. “Many people do not know how incredibly rich Turkish cuisine is,” she starts.
