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.

Nice ambience, the food was tasty and the portions generous. Our waiter was charming and welcoming. The Valentine's Day prix fixe menu was a tad on the expensive side, I feel like we could have gone to a much nicer restaurant for what we spent. The prix fixe menu was 45 a person but my girlfriend got Doner kebab which is essentially street food and the chocolate mousse dessert tasted like Jello pudding. That being said I would recommend the place, we go to a lot of mediterranean type restaurants and this stood out .

The appetizer of feta and spinach wrapped in phyllo was delicious and the eggplant entree of Patlican Oturtmasi was magical. My daughter and I saw the light and crusty lavash bread pass our table several times and ordered it - fabulous! We ordered well with wine but our waitress was peevish and unattentive. As a previous server, I was so disappointed. The food was fabulous and I would consider takeout in the future.

Oh my goodness! Our server was amazing. He kindly turned the heat down because we were a bit warm, and he recommended the most delicious things ever! The roasted red pepper dip that you are served to go with the bread is one of the best things I have ever eaten! We had lamb, salmon, chicken, and a pizza. Everything was fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious The little bulgar side dish was super yummo!!!! We also ordered the hot assortment of appetizers and the roasted eggplant cold dip is crazy good! One of my favorites in Chapel Hill! Can’t wait to go back! Thank you! :)

We celebrated New Year's Eve. The restaurant was quiet because of the reduced capacity but the service was superb - as was the food! We had the prix fixe menu - while I cannot pronounce, (much less spell), the dishes, they were exceptional and well-presented. One member of our party is from Cyprus, so he verified the authenticity of the menu. This is one of my most favorite restaurants anywhere!

GREAT food! Made to order. Fresh and wonderful. Their baked bread and hummus were super good. The pizza was so good, I will be focusing more on that next time. We had the non-veg sampler plate which was also very very good. Strongly recommend the shredded wheat style dessert.

Talulla's longstanding reliability continues: excellent authentic Turkish food at modest prices with a good range of wine and other beverage choices. My two favorites, the sigara böregi and the lamb güveç were as fine as ever. And remarkably in these times one still receives a loaf of the excellent bread with dipping sauce for free. Canan's service was impeccable: friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Fortunately, Talulla's has enough indoor space to accommodate a reasonable number of diners and meet all social distancing guidelines. Highly recommended!
