Great food, atmosphere, service. We love this restaurant and have eaten there steadily for ten years!
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.
Kinda busy that night. Took awhile to get out drink orders taken.
Love this place, its not a vegetarian place but there are lots of good options. Great cozy atmosphere and terrific service
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.
Excellent meal with excellent service. They REALLY know how to cook fish!
Great food and smiling service as usual
The kebabs were great, as was the bread. The Kafta kebab was especially good. The zucchini Mucver was underwhelming though, so other appetizers might be a better choice.
The place has a very cozy feel to it, but a table for two reservation will likely leave you right next to the toilet on a busy evening, which isn't that cozy.
First experience with Turkish food. Triangle Restaurant Week was a perfect chance to try it and we really enjoyed ourselves! Very good service; waitress took the time to describe each item, reminded us about each course and the accompanying wine. We'll be back!
We like Middle Eastern cooking, and Talulla's is absolutely one of the best.
It was my birthday and also triangle restaurant week, so we got a three course meal at such a great value!
We experienced ery good service; good food and wine
This is a wonderful restaurant with great food and service. One of our favorites.
Good cocktails, nice wine, flavorful meal, charming waitress (cousin of the owner; her young son was a stitch, trying to help). The Turkish rugs on the walls were splendid.
The dipping sauce was wonderful. Bread was heavenly. The leg of lamb was the hit of the table. Didn’t even taste like lamb, falling off bone. Only thing different was the Turkish coffee...1/3 of tiny cup was grounds, although very good.
Loved the service and the ambiance. We had the private seating with the pillows and curtains. Very cool option!
One of our favorite places for family occasions or when friends are visiting. We love Turkish cuisine and Tallula’s food is equal to anything we had in Turkey. The staff is friendly and attentive without hovering, and is helpful in explaining unfamiliar dishes.
