Erciyes Turkish Restaurant

So I have this group of friends who I do volunteer work with, and we like to go out and eat. One of our most favourite places to go is Erciyes Restaurant on Cleveland Street on the border of Surry Hills and Redfern.

Having worked our way through Witchery Martin Place (which is closing down), we had worked up quite an appetite. Sick of the usual options, we decide on the foodcourt in the GPO. I haven’t been here for ages, and had completely forgotten the range of choices available!

We settled on the most magnificent Sosumi sushi train right in the middle of the lower ground floor:

I’ve decided that instead of me sticking my pics up, I’m just going to link to everyone else’s post. You may discover some new and intriguing bloggers who take your fancy!
