We all agreed this was one of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a while!
We had such a good time. The food was fabulous - each and every dish. The service was exceptional. And the ambiance was so comfortable - Persian rugs on the wall and wooden
We would go back in a minute!
I was transported back to Sultan Ahmet District of Istanbul. Excellent, authentic Turkish cuisine, which is one of the world's best. Our guests, who had never had Turkish cooking, were so pleased!
This is one of our favorites -- inexpensive enough for everyday but also wonderful for special occasions. And our grandkids love it too!
Good food and friendly service! The dining area does feel a little cramped, but it's still a nice, cozy place to have a good meal.
My husband and I had dinner here for the first time two nights ago (a Saturday). We were seated at a wonderfully romantic table in the corner, a couple of steps above the main dining floor. We ordered ground lamb/ground beef dumplings as an appetizer. They were outstanding. As was the complimentary bread with a most fantastic perhaps red-pepper & oil dip to accompany. For dinner, my husband had the lamb shank and I had a shaved lamb dish. The names were authentic and not something I could pronounce, so apologies for not naming them properly in this review. Both meals were excellent. The lamb was SO tender and flavored wonderfully. The only downside was the Turkish coffee at the end. It had TONS of coffee grounds in every single sip. I could not finish it. I Googled Turkish coffee while trying to get through it. It's supposed to have some grounds at the bottom, but not the entire cup. Aside from that, it was a great experience. Oh yes -- parking is a problem in this area. All of the street parking spots were gone. We parked in a small lot that seemed to belong to an auto repair shop on the corner. There was no place to pay for parking here so we were very nervous the whole dinner that we'd have a ticket or be towed. Luckily, no problems.
We are from Turkey, and many in the family are gourmet cooks/foodies. Talulah's is really authentic and delicious, it never disappoints.
Tallulah's is one of our favorite local restaurants, and this evening was no exception. The Turkish cuisine is as good as we've had anywhere in the country. Tables are sufficiently separated to allow for a conversation without your neighbor in your lap. Even though it's on Franklin Street, free valet parking is right in front.
We went to Talulla's for Christmas dinner because it was one of only a few restaurants open in our area. We were pleasantly surprised by what a great experience we had! We ordered off of a prix fixe menu, and found all of the food to be exceptionally good. Though we had never been to Talulla's before (we live in Durham), I imagine we will make the drive to Chapel Hill again in the near future!
The food and the ambiance was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and gracious. We had a wonderful night out!
Excellent Turkish restaurant-good service and food is always well prepared. Lovely atmosphere, highly recommended
