Every thing was really great. It helps off you know a bit about the menu ... If not ... Just ask. Very friendly staff were great also.
Food took a long time but food was good.
It was our first time there. Very nice place. We ordered the mixed grill for two. Had a little bit of everything. It was delicious
This place might be great on any other night but dinner time on Valentine’s Day was not a great choice. It was a smaller space and they seemed to be overbooked. We were seated at what looked like a coffee shop table, not suitable for dinner for 2. The food was good but the lack of service and the crowdedness overshadowed this.
Another wonderful experience with excellent food and service!
They have great service with excellent food and drinks. Love their home made bread.
Good actually great food... too campy place ... sitting is an issue if you have large group.
Owner and staffs are really great and know hospitality
The food was excellent as always. The mixed grill gives you a taste of everything.
Food was beyond exceptional! Truly authentic Turkey cuisine! Service was amazing! Will be returning with friends and family.
We dine at Cafe Instabul often but this visit with family in for the holidays was special. And the staff at Cafe Instabul got us all seated and the service was awesome. Highly recommend this place. And the food is great.
We had an excellent evening. Service was excellent and will come back.
Our second time visiting and food was again excellent. Service was very good up until we wanted the check which took a bit longer than I’d like. Will be back. Hunkar Begendi is a standout! Stuffed grape leaves were best I’ve ever had.
Excellent. Love this place.
We love cafe Istanbul, great food , service. You can relax and talk. We will be back soon.
Awesome, authentic Turkish cuisine. Just wish they could actually stock the Turkish and Lebanese wine in their menu! However, you go for the grub!
$25 appetizer platter is worth about $8, and with hair in it, you'd think they would have taken it off the bill, even though they brought a new one. Everyone had shish-k-bobs which are ok in size but most restaurants like this give two, and the rice, which was just "ok," was a very small serving. The wine selection was poor. Was hard to get waiter when we needed him. Won't be going back.
Cafe Istanbul is always reliably delicious. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the service is great. easy parking. One of our favorites!
I often eat here for dinner. The staff and owner are always friendly. Keep up the excellent job!
Perfect and the most amazing food that is beautifully plated !
Perfect for a date night, family, or special occasion....the bread is a special treasure !
This was my second time at this restaurant and both times the food and service has been excellent. I always recommend this place to friends and family. Most authentic Turkish food I have had next to being in Turkey. Best lamb dishes in Dallas that I have tried.
I frequently take customers to Cafe Istanbul for lunch during our VIP events. They are always able to accommodate my group, even on short notice. The noise level is low enough that we can comfortably talk business without having to yell. And the food is terrific - there's really something for everyone though the carb-free folks may be tempted by the amazing bread that comes hot out of the oven. Good vegetarian options, the salmon is consistently excellent & the kabobs are a hit. Highly recommend.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Cafe Istanbul. I've dined here regularly on business (lunch). The food here is excellent and this visit with a party of 4 did not disappoint. We enjoyed the Lahmacun Tabagi appetizer. The adana kebab and lamb shish kebab entrees were excellent. One member of our party said its the best shish kebab she's ever had. The adana kebab tasted just like the adana kebab I had at the Cevalia Mall in Istanbul this past December. Excellent meal overall.
Always excellent and always authentic! Including some light options, and you must finish with traditional Turkish coffee!
Great food and service. The hummus, bread and entrees were excellent. Fresh salads also.
Wonderful food, cocktails and service. Always one of my favorites. They never disappoint
Great food and atmosphere. Very nice place for a date!
Food was well prepared and nicely served. Our waiter and the owner went out of their way to be sure we were pleased with meal. I appreciated the numerous gluten free options on the menu. Really good neighborhood restaurant.
We enjoy cafe Istanbul every time we dine here, after today several of my family praised my choice of restaurant and mentioned they plan on returning more often!
We have been to this place before and the quality of their food remains consistent. A bit pricey!
The food was fantastic. Our party of four had no complaints. Unfortunately, the music was VERY load making it hard to talk with friends I have not seen for some time. We finally asked for the music to be turned down.
Another wonderful dinner at Cafe Istanbul!
Outstanding food and service as always
Great patio and lamb - the rest very disappointing
The falafal is supposedly prepped by "world class Turkish chefs"...I have had fast Mediterranean food falafal that was better. At least it was luncheon priced. Unfortunately, there are no lunch sized entree portions. Only sandwiches on the lunch menu. $100+ for casual lunch is a bit much. The lamb was excellent as was the pita. The waiter said the calamari was not breaded but it was. It was decent but nothing special. The Turkish coffee was worth it though. However you can get equally good at Cafe Intermezzo across the way. And better food.
This used to be one of our favorites for Mediterranean food. Food quality seems to have gone down significantly. Chicken kabobs were almost inedible and had no flavor. Rice was equally as bland. Hope they'll devote more effort to adding flavor going forward.
Great food. Great service. Relax environment
the food was delicious. service was great. prices were good. a great night out!
Food is outstanding and so was the service
We had a fabulous evening at Cafe Istanbul. The food was absolutely delicious. Great flavors. There were 6 of us & we shared two appetizer platters, two salads & two entree platters. So much food we took enough home for dinner for four! Tried an interesting Turkish red wine - somewhat sweeter than a Merlot but nice.
