It is no longer a restaurant but a shisha cafe. Prices are crazy expensive.

They charge $75 per person to be seated in patio, which isn't mentioned anywhere or even over the call they don't say it.
The owner was really rude and stupid by the way he takes care of business and he do not know how to talk to customers.
They need to mention if they are charging any extra for any of their services.

Food was good. Service was spread too thin and disorganized. Apparently, still hiring and training staff since post-covid re-opening. Overall nice restaurant that my wife and I will try again.

Excellent Turkish Mediterranean food and great service; Falafel was the best we have had;
Bread was very tasty; We had Salmon and Shrimp for entrees - they were both delicious. Served with nicely moist rice and a nice salad;
Service was very attentive and thoughtful - would definitely recommend;

Fantastic food and extremely attentive staff. We came in about 45 mins till closing and they were fine with seating us. Both the hummus and the baklava are fresh made daily and done on site. They are a must try.

My steak kabob was cooked properly , not overdone and the rice was perfectly cooked.

Would absolutely suggest it as a must dine at for all my friends.

We have been to Mandolin Kitchen several times and have always enjoyed the food. This time was a different story! We ordered the same dishes that we have in the past and they were not the same. The seasoning, the presentation and taste was all off. So much so, that we asked our server if ownership had changed. She told us that the chef was on vacation for several weeks and someone else was cooking. She also mentioned that all the servers had changed, which we had noticed. In the past, the servers where all Turkish, which was nice, since it is a Turkish Restaurant. They knew about the preparation of the food and how to serve it, ( such as offering to filet a whole fish, instead of plopping the whole fish on the table). Now , all the servers were of a different ethnicity and I am pretty sure that the the current chef is as well, because the food was not authentic. Another family near us complained that their soup was not the same and neither was the preparation/presentation. Unfortunately, we will not be going back and will no longer recommend it to friends. There are too many good restaurants in Sandy Springs, to bother going back again. If, indeed the chef was really on an extended vacation, they should have closed temporarily and informed patrons that they will reopen on a certain date.

There were 6, of us, at a rectangular table. However, the noise level allowed everyone, to participate in conversation.
All, of our party, RAVED about their meals... except me. I ordered the jumbo shrimp dish; and, found the shrimp, to be overcooked and quite tasteless.. The accompanying salad was unremarkable; and, the rice was... rice.

This is the third time we have been there and we absolutely love, love love it! Love the owner Berat and his staff. The food to the ambiance is just perfect. I just wished it was near Alpharetta because the place we have near us is not good at all. My husband and I don’t mind driving out to Sandy Springs for this yummy goodness!

This could have been five stars, but the smell of hookah smoke coming through the air vents and open door to another room lowered the experience. The food is delicious and plentiful. Lots of appetizers to choose from. Lamb dishes are exceptional. Salmon was prepared perfectly. Dessert of flan was enough for four to share. If they figure out how to keep the smoke out, we'll be back!
