Often described as the Turkish "Game of Thrones," the series tells the story before the establishment of the Ottoman Empire in 13th century Anatolia. It illustrates the struggle of Ertuğrul Gazi, the father of the empire's first leader Osman Gazi.
On the menu at his restaurant are a variety of Arabic dishes but no Turkish delicacies. Khan has decorated the place with posters of the characters from the series.
