Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Turkish
Description: 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.

The flavor of the food, the quality of the service, and the prices - the perfect restaurant. My wife and I were AMAZED at how good the food was. Really incredible. We are already planning our next trip to Burlington, just because of this restaurant.

The food is a rich tapestry of Middle Eastern flavors. The price is right and the service is great. Worth walking down Church Street.

The Lamb Kebabs were superb !! Restaurant is small so you will need to get here early! Service was great as well. Not as busy as market street and that was a definite plus !!

In a town where foo-foo overpriced food seems to be the norm, Istanbul Kebab House is so refreshing. The food is very simple but crafted to perfection, portions are ample, and the price is fair for a family owned business. I’ve been 3 or 4 times and have enjoyed each thing I’ve tried- but am hooked on the mezze with warm lavash, the adana lamb kebab, and the kunefe for dessert! Also worth trying the Turkish wine offerings, strong coffee, or apple tea. One of my favorite places in Burlington!
