Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine has been established since 2004, and has been family owned and operated ever since. Our first location (on Park Avenue in Winter Park, FL) has firmly established our presence as the premier Turkish restaurant company in Florida. This location (opened in late 2012) was our first endeavor into the South Orlando market - and we're so glad to be here! We're very excited about our newest location, and are quite proud to say that our food, wines, and high level of service are identical to our Winter Park location. Come experience our authentic Turkish cuisine, made in-house, from scratch - every single day. We look forward to seeing you at Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine in Dr. Phillips!

Decided to just try a lot of smaller plates versus entrees. What a good idea! Loved the Turkish pizza, quite a spicy bit of lamb. And the freshly made zucchini fritters were melt in your mouth delicious! Four of us ate for $67, not including drinks and tip, and it was just enough with no leftovers.

We had an amazing time! Ali was our server and he was fantastic. I can't say enough great things about this place. The managers came out and were so attentive and really made our experience so unforgettable. I will 100% come back to this place. The food is so delicious; meats just so tender and fall off the bone. If you have second thoughts...don't! Absolute must.

Over priced for the quality of food. Appetizer sampler was very bland compared to other Turkish restaurants.
Chicken shishkabob , rice was over cooked and sticky.
When you spend this type of money , you expect the food to be perfect.
Will not go back
However, service was good

The food always meets expectations and regardless of how busy the restaurant is (and it's busy every night of the week), they manage to time the meals perfectly. This restaurant is one of my favorites in the area, however, if you are looking for a quiet dinner experience, it might be a bit too loud. Bonus point: management always makes sure special requests are satisfied.

This restaurant is small and was overbooked. The noise level did not allow conversation. It appeared that the kitchen could not keep up with the demand. One entree was served and finished before the second one was delivered to the table. We did not stay for desert, couldn’t wait to leave. That being said, the food was delicious. Might try it again, but not on a Saturday evening.

Great food and service. Nice atmosphere, but beware: the restaurant is small and in the spring, they leave the entry doors open. Cigarette smoke from nearby sidewalk tables wafts into the restaurant, so if you have allergies, you may be uncomfortable.

Outstanding Experience!

If you are a foodie, this is a destination restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food divine. The atmosphere was quite charming. The copper tables, lamps and artwork added a distinctive, personal touch.
We will return on every visit to Orlando. Very impressive- from a couple of food critics!
5 stars minimum from beginning to end.

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.

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.

Living by the reviews I took 3 meat and potatoes associates. All really enjoyed their dishes from kebabs to saute’s . The bread is fabulous and the service spot on. Will definitely return when back in Orlando.
