Wonderful meal with attentive and warm service. Loved everything about the meal and the experience.
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!
New Years eve
I love this place. Great food and people. Always a fabulous time we go.
Marvelous food. My husband and I are eager to return.
Always an amazing experience all around - beautiful and delicious food, perfect service, and great atmosphere. Talulla's is top of our list when we are in town!
The food, the ambiance, the whole experience wonderful.
Great place. I’ll be back. Food was delicious. Presentation equally great. Service was fine
By far our very favorite restaurant with the best service and food in the area.
We sat outside and had mostly lamb dishes. Delicious, and the Turkish coffee and carmelized cream dessert were a fantastic finish.
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!
The good and service was excellent!
I visit Chapel Hill from time to time for business and ALWAYS go to Talulla's, another great dining experience! I love their food and service.
Some of the best food I have had! I brought a family of sceptics and when the bread and sauce arrived at the table they were all impressed. I ordered for everyone and everything was delicious!
Safe outdoor dining experience during these strange times. Wonderful food and service as always. Complimentary birthday desserts were the ‘icing on the cake’!
Incredible dinner! We asked our server to surprise us with house recommendations for both starters and entrees. One of the best dinners we've had in a long time.
Talulla’s is just delicious!! I was so happy they had outside seating with plenty of distance.
Wonderful food and service. hope they survive the pandemic BS and don't close like so many others have
Great food & service!!!
Very quiet due to COVID-19. Food was excellent and plentiful. Drinks were solid. Great service. Cost was very reasonable. We would definitely eat here again. 👍
Food was delicious! Excellent dining experience.
Had a wonderful experience at Talulla's. The food was great as were the drinks. Staff was friendly. Small issue with service, they were a little short with help, but in fairness to them, we dined there the weekend before UNC started fall semester and because of the pandemic, it must have been difficult predicting how many customers they would have. They were extremely friendly and kept us informed of how long it would be before we were served.
We love Talulla's. The food is always delicious, the service is excellent and it just has a nice feel. It is one of our go to restaurants in Chapel Hill.
The food was fantastic! The fish special was perfectly prepared. We also loved the bread and sauce served at the table and the baklava was to die for! We will be back!
Great place. Friendly wait staff and terrific food.
We had a wonderful dinner at Talullah's. The food was even better than the last time we ate there. Cocktails were great, especially the bourbon sour cherry drink. Fresh bread with a yummy pepper spread was wonderful. We had 3 mezzas, and 2 main course dishes for three people. Everything was fresh and the sauces were superb.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was attentive and friendly.
Wonderful food - definitely try it out!
Great selection. Tasty food. Attentive service. Definitely going back. Nice ambiance
We loved the variety of choices. Our server was fantastic! We had people at the table age 10 to age 77 and everyone was happy.
Wonderful food, especially if you’re looking for Middle Eastern food with many delicious lamb dishes. Go on the weekend and try the dishes they only serve then. They could use more servers, as the place is very popular.
We learned just a week ahead of time that friends from Vermont were going to be visiting us in North Carolina and wanted to take s out to dinner -- on Valentines' Day! A brief scramble ensued as I sought a nice restaurant that still had a table available, and was pleased that Talulla's could accommodate us, albeit at a very early 5:30. All good, and we were even able to score a coveted, and usually reserved, window table.
On the other hand, two issues reduced our level of enjoyment. First, they were only serving from a very, very reduced menu, so many of their more popular (and delicious) dishes were not available. Although the offerings that evening were decent, they were fairly basic for anyone who has enjoyed eastern Mediterranean food for years. Since this fact was not mentioned on their website, or in the two phone conversations I had with the staff to confirm the arrangements, this was unexpected and unappreciated. Second, though less surprising, was that they were constantly full all evening, making the service quite hit or miss. My advice is to go on a normal evening, not a holiday.
Valentine’s Day had a set menu and was very busy. We had a large table as well. The food was decent but our plates were not as complete as we felt they should be.
Best Turkish food in the triangle, great ambiance, and so much flavor!!
Food was excellent but our server was extremely slow and spent much of his time talking to people at other tables. He did not seem concerned to take our order, bring our food, and even take our dessert order. I asked for dessert menus, which he did bring, but he took so long to come back to our table that we decided to skip dessert. I'm wondering if he didn't care because we were 5 people so he knew he would get the 18% anyway. I also did not think a mandatory tip should start with 5 people. Most restaurants start with a larger number.
We’d never eaten Turkish food before but we were feeling adventurous. All four of us raves about the really delicious food and the impeccable service.
It I s always an amazing experience at talulla’s. The food is delicious, staff is very accommodating, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. This is our go to restaurant when we are in Chapel Hill and looking for an enjoyable evening out. We’ve been many times and it never disappoints.
