We had a nice experience at Bosphorous, but I do not think the quality of the food commands the high price. We regularly dine at Turkish restaurants, love the cuisine, but I did not find the preparation to be something sufficiently unique to warrant the price. That said, I was very appreciative and pleased with the attention our family received when one in our party had to dine gluten free. The manager spoke with us and made some recommendations and suggestions about foods that she could eat and should not eat. It is clear that this place is a neighborhood gem, as it was packed with more people coming in after 9pm. Clearly a hit with the locals.

My boyfriend and I tried Bosphorus for the first time on Valentine's Day. We made a reservation and was seated right away at a table that had been reserved for us, which was so nice since the restaurant was tiny but they take their reservations seriously. We ordered the lavash bread and hummus - amazing and very filling. My boyfriend got the Chicken Kofte, also amazing and with spices I have never tried before. I got lamb for the first time and really enjoyed that as well. I will say the notable dish for me was the pickled vegetables and rice pilav. So good! The only downside is this location didn't have a liquor license, but their Turkish wines are awesome.

Fantastic food! Great selection of Turkish wine. We love visiting this restaurant every time we are in Orlando. Service was excellent. Portions are huge and great value. Don’t miss ordering the Lavos bread!!! The space is a little small, but otherwise fantastic!

Food was outstanding. Babaganoush, lavas and a glass of wine - heaven. The lamb shanks are beyond delicious. Some of the best Mousaka ever. The service, however, was frankly obtrusive. I felt rushed by the server. The moment my fork left my hand our server was there to usher in next part of the meal. Our entrees arrived before we finished the appetizers so my choice was to let my food get cold as I caught my breath between courses or dive and give in to the rush. It was disappointment when all I wanted was to dine and enjoy the rich food and flavors.

Bosphorus is a great restaurant with great-tasting authentic Turkish food. The food is made from scratch and contains no MSG (monosodium glutamate), which keeps me coming back. Their food and restaurant decor remind me of the 31 exceptional days that I spent in Turkey a few years back. Our waiter at Bosphorus Orlando was super! Love the Mediterranean Sea Bass, the lavash, Iskender, and Special Beyti. They deserve kudos, as does their whole menu. Don’t forget to save room for dessert! Sadly because it was a nice day out, the wait staff left the front door standing open and the cigarette and cigar smoke came wafting in, along with the car noise and fumes, which put a damper on an otherwise great business meal. But in spite of that, I will definitely go back again.

I’ve lived in the Dr Phillips area for over 16 yrs. Restaurant Row has a lot to offer, but this is a hidden gem. I’ve seen this restaurant many times in the past few years but never ventured in until tonight. Food is fantastic and very flavorful. Management is very inviting and pleasant. We will definitely be returning. Note: Portion sizes are large and can be shared among two.

Visiting from out town we were told to try Bosphorous for "real" Turkish foods/meals. We were not disappointed!!
We attempted to order a wide variety on foods that included a combination of salads and dips, plus lamb, chicken and eggplant. All were very tasty and true to the Turkish preparations we had last year in Istanbul. The homemade bread was excellent and combination with the hummus and eggplant....and olive oil.
We ended the meal on a very high note, having the baked cheese and honey dessert. Don't miss it with a strong Turkish coffee.

This was our first time dining at this location. And while we have always enjoyed the Winter Park location, this one was even better! Our server, Rami, was wonderful!! And the Manager, Eric, went out of his way to make sure that my husband, who suffers from celiac, had a meal that was not only delicious, but safe. They staff is incredible. And, of course, the food is delicious!

The restaurant itself is very pleasant: color, decor, scents, lighting, music...all lends itself to a warm, friendly, appealing location in which to have a date night with a loved one.
Then, the noise level hits you: BOOM. This is not a place to enjoy a pleasant date night. Although, this doesn't necessarily detract from the establishment as a whole; I went there with the intention of enjoying a nice date.
That being said, one immediately feels as though you walked into a huge family kitchen where all of your little cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends are waiting for you with open arms.
Did I mention kids? There was an abundance of them having a rambunctious, good time: yelling, running around, standing in their seats...if one suffers anxiety, or tends to get easily overstimulated, this is not the place for you.
On to the staff: they are fantastic! Attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, and johnny-on-the-spot.
I ordered the lamb shank and it fell off of the bone in front of me. It was absolutely amazing and, to be honest, I'm not a huge fan of lamb.
My friend ordered the Chicken Kebabs with marinated onions, cabbage, and carrots and he kept saying how fantastic every portion was.
