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. Our Dr. Phillips location (opened in late 2012) was our first endeavor into the South Orlando market. We"re very excited about our newest location in the great Lake Nona community and are quite proud to say that our food, wines, and high level of service are identical to our other locations. 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 Lake Nona!

We requested an outside table. On weekends there is live music and vendors in the square so great for people watching. Service was prompt and courteous. The food was brought out in a very timely manner. Tasty and plentiful. Would definitely recommend.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, if not our favorite restaurant. We drive an hour and a half to get there because there is nothing like it near us. The food is consistently great and no matter how busy they are, we always have prompt service. The food is amazing!!

One waiter who was not even our waiter was rude and said to us we did not know what we ordered. The manager Brian was great and helped a lot but the curly hair dude I guess did not like foreigners who were not born here. Blamed us for the wrong order and suggested maybe we should speak proper English. The main waiter was awesome and the manager was great.

We LOVE Bosphorus! However, I felt the food wasn’t quite up to par last night....

Falafel was lukewarm as tho it had been sitting out for a while and Same with the Kunafe... one side was over done and the other side was under done... cheese was melted but just barely. Again, just lukewarm.... There was also a snafu with our gift cards.... we gave them to the server but she didn’t take them off of our bill.... didn’t realize this until later......

Had to send my Bosphorus mule back as it was very very strong... our server easily replaced it with Sangria no problem! I guess we were there during happy hour but had no idea as we weren’t told up front when we ordered our drinks. Apparently you are not allowed to participate in happy hour AND use gift cards.... again, we didn’t know this rule.....

Women’s Bathroom was a bit of a mess too.... paper towel dispenser didn’t work and toilet paper all over the floor in one of the stalls... My husband said the paper towel dispenser in the men’s also didn’t work... but He opened it up and fixed it! Really??????

Again, this has not deterred us from eating here as we are loyal customers, but last night was not the experience we were hoping for.....

Food is delicious, but not as elegantly presented as the Winter Park location. Desserts are not comparable to the original location either, which was a disappointment.

The restaurant area was crowded! Though we had a table outside to keep safe from Covid - the table were arranged in a very poor manner and we were very disappointed - non-diners are able to be so close to your table that they are leaning into your table. We love this restaurant and dine here often but may skip till they figure proper social distancing.

la comida es muy buena aunque abundante para nosotros.
los cockteles buenos y ademas tienen Happy Hour los sábados hasta las 7pm
la atención de nuestra mesera fue buena pero demasiado rápida...no habiamos terminado los appetizers y ya nos estaban preguntando por los platos de fondo...
la verdad que los platos son bien generosos asi que no pedimos ningun plato más, solo cafe y un postre para llevar.

The lamb shank is as good as everyone says - an incredible meal. We enjoyed the flight of Raki - a very unusual treat, highly recommended. Service was excellent and the restaurant is located in a great area - lively and exciting. Overall a wonderful evening!

The food was awesome! Our Waitress was truly one of a kind. She was caring and attentive throughout our entire meal. Our drinks were never close to empty without a refill in place. She was very helpful for recommendations as it was our first visit. This was our anniversary dinner, and the entire staff and management made a point to swing by our table and wish us a Happy Anniversary. Thank you so much to the staff for a wonderful experience!

I always order the mixed grill to get a nice variety of meats. Also the Ezme and Hydride are a wonderful appetizer to accompany the different meats. Great food and great atmosphere!

Service was great. Our server Mohammed suggested a drink when he noticed we were looking at the specialty drinks. My husband ordered that and when I didn’t jump at it he brought up another one and I ordered that one. We were both happy with the choices. Food was perfect and the service attention was refreshing. We didn’t feel like we had to wait to ask for anything but also there was no “hovering”. We finally had a night out to talk without having to stop mid sentence every 5 minutes.

The happy hour is the best in the area. We love going to the Lake Nona location and sitting outside. I noticed the spacious seating between tables inside as well but have not sat in there lately. The staff has always been warm, friendly, and attentive. I appreciate the paperless menu option. They have been very thoughtful of everything with COVID.
