We ate here twice in our four day visit. The food was superb with great choice. Definitely recommend this and the popcorn cheese cake.

We discovered istanbul many years ago when a friend told us about it, we are now regular visitors and it never dissapoints. If you're in the louth area and want a delicious & filling meal, then look no further

Been here a few times. The food is lovely and the meat is cooked very well! The hospitality is great and they're very welcoming and friendly. They have added a few new dishes which I may try next time. But for this time I stuck to what I know! Lamb kebab with all the accompaniments!

Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food. This was my first visit to a Turkish restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. The lamb kebab wrap was very tasty and the tiramisu was delicious. It is clear the food is authentic and all very fresh. Very good quality and value for money, I will be back next time I'm visiting Louth!

We have visited the Istanbul during our annual visits to my home town since it opened. Unlike some place they have never allowed the standards to slide. The food is always freshly prepared and tasty, the staff are always cheerful and helpful. Highly recommended.

Booked for 4 and greeted by friendly and courteous staff. Drinks included Efess beer which was a nice reminder of Istanbul. Ordered varied starters to share which were of a very high standard, which we all enjoyed. The main courses were exceptional, the lamb delicious, with more than adequate portions to satisfy us all.
