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!

The location was beautiful. Started with the hummus and the specialty bread which was amazing. The mixed grill for two was a huge portion and delicious.

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.

We love Bosphorous! They have the best food, our fav is the chicken Adana. My picky child loved it as well! She loves the rice and grilled kabob plus the lava bread! Who doesn’t love the lava bread? Highly recommend!

Second time there and food is excellent. Given Covid situation it was too crowded with several people let in without face covering- not good. Staff was covered - that was reassuring.

Travis was an excellent server and unlike other Bosphorous restaurants in different location and existing through history, this Bosphorous really makes you feel welcome and appreciated!? We will make an effort to return even though it is distant from where we live. It was a very enjoyable night and delicious food!

So delish. Appetizer with elf bread and different dips was nice to share. Happy hour prices were good for drinks. Lots of nice choices of beers on tap. Did not like the cucumber martini-too sweet, not fresh muddled cucumbers. Had the meat slop for 2 with various meat and it was very yummy. Ive tried to make their rice and cant come close. I could eat just a big pile of that. Go there. You wont be disappointed.

My wife and I like to stop at Bosphorus in Lake Nona on our way to the beach. The food is typically very good and the price is quite reasonable. We were only interested in a light lunch on our most recent visit. The large mixed appetizer was very good (especially the haydari and tabbuli). The mixed appetizer was large enough to satisfy two adults for lunch. Unfortunately, the falafel was quite a bit overcooked to the point it was difficult to break apart. The mixed appetizer was delivered very quickly, but the service was a bit uneven. I would still recommend Bosphorus and plan to return to order a small appetizer so we'll have room split a main course.
