The name Stanbuli is taken from the local lingo of Istanbul’s streets. Stanbuli is an affectionate term for an Istanbul local and is an exciting Turkish Restaurant from Chef and Owner Ibrahim Kasif.

While travelling to Istanbul and Northern Cyprus Ibrahim dreamed of reinterpreting the cuisine of his own cultural heritage. Years later the dream of his own restaurant took on the form of a style of eatery known as a Meyhane.

Intrinsic to a Meyhane is a sense of nostalgia and romance. Underpinning the Meyhane tradition is a convivial atmosphere characterised by a fun, social style of eating and drinking. Food is always shared – a central tenet of Turkish custom and an underlying feature in hosting guests.

Meze – abundant / colourful and creative / seemingly endless little dishes – invites the diner to commence their evening with cold dishes serving up an array of vegetables, yoghurts, cheeses, fish and offal.

    A brilliant night saying goodbye to one of my favourite restaurants and the incredible people behind it. Ibs’ food has always been made with so much love, Phoebe and the FOH team always delivering service that made us feel so welcome. Congratulations on an incredible venue and thank you for every experience. Lots of love xxx

    This is one of the great Newtown restaurants, the service is second to none and the food and drink wonderful, great location opposite the enmore theatre , we had the Softa menu started with a cocktail or 2 then a beautiful feast of flavours wonderful breads and dips and some excellent meat dishes from the char grill , I love the charred olives and honey , the mushrooms and the stuffed mussels but most of all I love the staff , don’t miss out I hear they’re closing soon
