When you walk through the shadowed glass doors of Talulla's, an instant transformation begins to occur. Your mind and body begin to relax. Your ears pick up on the eclectic mix of music. Your eyes wonder around the walls, decorated in Turkish rugs; then the ceilings, scattered with warm, unique lighting pieces; then the floors... the dark, hardwood floors; and finally, across the plush seating areas, disguised by cushions and pillows and fabric leisurely draped around the frames.

Everything we had was delicious! Even my teenagers were impressed. The appetizers and entrees were all so favorable and fresh tasting. The homemade bread came to the table warm with a wonderful dipping sauce. We asked for another loaf to dip with all our meals. We'll be back when we're in the area again.

Kathy and I stumbled into Talulla's a few years ago on Valentine's Day, and I say stumbled because, as usual, I made no reservations and everything else was booked. Talulla's let us sit at the bar and we had a meal we still talk about, and Saturday was just as good for our 4 1/2 year anniversary of dating. I do a lot of cooking, and for me a good meal is one I cannot figure out how to even start to reproduce at home, and for the second time, Talulla's did not disappoint. I had the lamb shank and Kathy had the moussaka. We also could not resist the baked hummus and stuffed grape leaves. Everything was as good as expected and we expected a lot. There are many great restaurants to choose from in Chapel Hill and we only get there occasionally, typically on our way to DPAC, but it will be difficult to try another if we are only there for one dinner. A real treasure as far as I am concerned.

Wonderful Turkish food! Really enjoyed ourselves, although the Saturday night crowd got a little noisy. Even with authentic Turkish carpets on the walls (very attractive), the acoustics are lively.

Superb and authentic Turkish food. Amazing flavors with a very broad menu. The specials are truly special. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new or who enjoys Mediterranean type food.

Talulla's is a long time favorite. The food is authentic, the atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the service is friendly and competent. But as much as I've enjoyed it in the past, the food itself has taken a step up. It clearly was prepared with care. The salad was fresh and nuanced. My wife's kebab's were seasoned and grilled to perfection. The lamb shank was just right and fell off the bone. Our friends had fried anchovies as a main course, and they were light and crunchy and mild. In other words, just right.
