Asena Restaurant is owned and operated daily by Mustafa Yildirim and Muhittin Arpaci, who both hail from Turkey, a country known for both its generous hospitality and exceptional cuisine.

Our menu features seasonal cuisine informed by our Mediterranean roots. Additionally, we feature a comprehensive wine list with many small labels and hidden gems, as well as a boutique bar with specialty cocktails. We are fortunate to enjoy the benefits of the many sustainable agricultural businesses in the area, and feature fresh, seasonal, local and organic ingredients in all of our food wherever possible. We are proud to be one of the few Zagat rated restaurants in Alameda.
