Saruja Restaurant

“Damascene cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Turkey, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines.”.

Damascene cuisine also influenced these cuisines and other neighbouring cuisines, as well as western European cuisines.

Damascenes fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Mediterranean cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from such as yogurt.

Damascene cuisine is a rare art which satisfies your senses.

The restaurant has been designed as a traditional Damascene house courtyard, the courtyard is one of the most enduring architectural forms, transcending regional, historical and cultural boundaries.

Its balance of simple appropriate construction, environmental control and social and familial structures continues to engage architects and architectural historians.
