The restaurant is located at the south end of Church Streer, just before the start of the pedestrian mall that rounds north to the church. While there was street-level outdoor seating on a lovely day — not an option we would have elected, we were...More

If you're looking for great kabobs and Lavash bread, you can't beat Istanbul Kabob House. I always get the swordfish kabob, my wife gets one of several other kabobs, and we get a couple of orders of Lavash bread. Absolutely delicious. This is one of...More

I give this place 4.5 stars for food, drink, location, and service. We were greeted cheerfully and made to feel welcome from the get-go. Our party of six loved dining on the rooftop veranda on a temperate summer night. Our server was very knowledgeable and...More

Despite having a friendly waiter, this was overall a disappointing experience. We ordered 3 appetizers to share and then 1 lamb kabob to share. Everything came out at once, the waiter apologized but any kitchen should know better. The cheese phyllo app was ok with...More

Came in for dinner. Having been to Turkey we perhaps had our bar too high. The babaganoush was tasty. Had the cheese rolls but they were a bit greasy. The beef meatballs were tasty with a mild tomato sauce. Main dish was ground lamb meatballs,...More

Our cold mezze platter was an excellent vehicle for the delightfully fresh homemade lavash bread. Fried cheese was tasty, as was the accompanying yogurt sauce. Grape leaves had a filling that was too mushy for my taste, but the flavor was there. Hummus and baba...More

Everything we tried was very tasty and authentic. They have seating on three levels, the top is a rooftop. They were very helpful what our daughter can eat safely with a peanut and treenut allergy. I recommend the sharing plates for appetizers and the grilles...More

Had a fantastic meal here. Fig martini was delicious. Fruity and just sweet enough, it was a great accompaniment to my meal. I would definitely recommend the lamb stuffed eggplant. The lamb was so tender cooked inside a perfectly seasoned eggplant. I also recommend the...More

Turkish food is a true fusion of many different cultures, a collage of different cuisines so to speak. Turkey, geo-physically located as a bridge between Europe and Asia, has been a melting pot of many civilizations since the beginning of history. Once the land of Hittites and the Greeks, it later became the home of the Turks, a nomadic peoples. Therefore, its cuisine is not only a collage of all the cultures that lived in Turkey throughout history, but also a collage of cuisines from all the lands Turks lived before settling in what was then called Asia-Minor. Today's Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Turkic, Ottoman, Greek, Persian, Arabic, Lebanese, and Armenian cooking that can be defined as a true and unique Mediterranean food experience. Turkish food, as most Mediterranean food, relies heavily on appetizers called "mezes" and especially the freshest of ingredients. Although it has many meat specialties, it is predominantly based on fresh vegetables. Therefore, it offers a perfect combination of vegetarian and meat dishes, appealing to a broad spectrum of the eating public.
