1.0  Dined on January 14, 2018

The atmosphere is non-existent, glaring down lights in the ceiling light the place up like a grocery store. They do not have a liquor license, so no wine or cocktails available. Even though it was less than half full, service took too long and food didn't come for over 20 minutes. When it finally did, the Moussaka was still cold, as in still in the fridge cold. Then they did a new one (why not just heat this one?) and zapped it so much in the microwave that the cheese on top (yes, cheese, not béchamel)totally disintegrated. It was greasy and barely edible. My lamb skewers were tasty but 2 hours later made a rapid exit. Needless to say, we will not be back and encourage you to avoid it.

Food was good, but took way too long and not worth the almost hour wait. Place was not packed, staff not all that personable. A lot of people picking up take out, maybe that is the better way to avoid frustrating in restaurant dining experience.

Great experience overall. Had a late lunch and just ordered apps. Food was fresh and delicious and the server was friendly and efficient. Baklava was a great ending to a wonderful meal.

The puffy bread and baba ganoush were very good. We also had calamari appetizer which was flavorless with a flavorless sauce. The entrees ranged from decent to poor, especially after an hours wait. Chicken kabobs were ok, the lamb kabobs ordered medium, were well done which rendered them tough and boring. The lamb chops were tiny and burned yet cold. The other ground chicken entrees were not very good.
Our server spoke little English and had very little menu knowledge. On several occasions we had to remind her of something we ordered. The place was 80% empty and yet the service was very slow.
We really wanted to like this place and had heard good things. Maybe we caught them on an off night even though it was a Saturday, but I think there is a reason they always seem empty.

We had a party of 13. Everything was great. The manager/staff were very personable and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was probably the most fun I've had in awhile at a restaurant. We'll definitely be back.

We have dined at Istanbul Turkish Cuisine several times and have always had a great meal. We were a group of 8 and wanted a place where we could enjoy good food AND be able to talk without loud excessive noise. The atmosphere was very nice, we could hear each other's conversation, and the food and service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

If you like Turkish food, this place is great. Chicken Addonis , and lamb sis kabob, with an appetizer of wheat Bulger stuffed with ground spiced lamb are the items we ordered. All were excellent!. There is outdoor seating as well.

We go here often with the same friends. We get a variety of dishes so that my wife can think back to when she lived in Cyprus. She likes to go there and converse in Turkish to keep up he fluency of the language. The food is authentic and the service is always at a good pace.

Service was a little too slow from the new server but we will definitely be back for the authentic cuisine. My wife speaks Turkish and likes to remain fluent each time that we visit.
