Sultan’s Inn reopens doors to ‘Lik’ community

INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey -- The aroma of sizzling bacon and frying eggs wafted throughout the base Wednesday night with the reopening of the Sultan's Inn Dining Facility. 

The Sultan's Inn, which was closed for two months due to exhaust hood renovations, opened its doors to 268 customers, with a new look and new customer orientated features. 

"I liked getting BAS for two months," said Airman TirNi Dowl, 39th Logistic Readiness Squadron receiving technician. "But I am very happy that the dining facility opened. I really missed the midnight meal." 

"We didn't just do a hood renovation during the closure," said Andrew Pastula, Sultan's Inn Dining Facility manager. "We also used the closure to upgrade the dining rooms, restrooms and serving lines." 

Customers in the dining facility will notice a difference in their eating experience. There is new carpet, new paint and new flat screen televisions in the dining rooms.
Not only has the scenery in the dining facility changed but many food items have been added to the menu. 

"Sultan's Inn customers will be enjoying a lot of new sweets like Schwanns soft serve ice cream and milkshakes," said Mr. Pastula. 

During the next couple of months customers will also see some new features and food items like Good Humor brand ice cream bars, and self serve smoothies. 

For those customers who lean toward the healthy side, there will be a improved Subway style sandwich bar. 

"We are also starting to offer salmon burgers for people who like that," said Mr. Pastula.
Though there are many new things coming to the Sultan's Inn, if there is still something a customer wants but isn't offered, Mr. Pastula simply suggests seeing a manager or filling out a comment card. 

"It never hurts to ask," he said, "You ask the question, we'll check to see if we can get it here." 

Mr. Pastula just asks that customers be a little patient with the Sultan's Inn. 

"After our closure it takes a few days to get back into the swing of things," he said. "Please be patient with us. The dining facility will be running like clock work soon."
