Food was ok not great.
Good variety on the menu. Staff and owner were very nice.
The food was amazing and service was as well. The grape leaves were the best I've ever tasted. Definitely recommend going here with a friend, date, or family.
Four of us enjoyed a dinner on a recent Saturday night. Everyone liked their food (two lamb shish kabobs, one doner, one chicken and a shared baba ghanoush) and portions were generous. Excellent pita bread -- would love to know where they get it. The restaurant, however, needs to up their game on service. A busy Saturday night should not be a surprise. The servers were extremely pleasant and apologetic, but could not keep up. Our waiter was all over the restaurant. No one ever checked to see how our food was. We waited a very long time after asking for the bill. One other point -- sharp knives are needed (and maybe they have them, but we couldn't catch anyone to ask) because it is almost impossible to cut large pieces of lamb with a butter knife.
Excellent, authentic Turkish food. Very well prepared. Came out quickly. The servers were very nice and knowledgeable about the food and the drink offerings.
I had a great experience at Rudy's. Excellent Lahmacun, Iskender Kebap, Pide, Künefe, all perfectly made. The apple tart mixed drink was delicious. My party needed special seating for one of my guests who has some accessibility issues, and Rudy's was more than accommodating. Great atmosphere, beautiful interior, good location. I'll definitely be coming back.
Went for dinner on Christmas. Had a reservation but chose to sit at the bar. Restaurant was busy but the service was still great. This was our first time there but the food was great so it definately won't be the last! Staff and food = *
As always the food was fresh and delicious and the service very attentive and helpful. We are repeat customers who love this restaurant.
Great food and service
We had no trouble getting a last minute reservation on Christmas Eve. Being tucked away in a business park this is a gem. The server was genial and the service was attentive but not intrusive. They easily accommodated my mother-in-law with her walker and did not rush us to order. The noise level was very comfortable, but it might be different at lunchtime. The food was as good as any we've had, the Turkish wine recommended was perfect for what we ordered, and the Turkish coffee was spot on.
Food was awesome, but service was little slow. Authentic turkish food, enjoyed it.
We enjoyed discussing the meal with the waiter.
Yummy cocktails, tasty hummus, falafel and eggplant salad. Delicious lamb dish. The spanakopita was a bit disappointing - too much phyllo dough and not enough spinach and feta filling. Overall, a fine meal!
This was our first time here and it was excellent. Food and service were great, never felt rushed, and they offer a nice Sunday brunch options. Really good mimosas. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
It’s tucked away in a business park but once inside you are transported to Istanbul. Delicious food and good service.
The live music made it impossible to have conversations. It was unexpected and made for a disappointing evening. The food, as usual, was excellent, but food isn’t everything. The music started at 6:30 so it was impossible to escape. Our group will not return for our monthly dinners if they continue to have the music.
Food was good. Ambience was a little loud for me personally as they had live music for a Tuesday night. Didn't ruin the evening but made conversation more difficult.
Overall I enjoyed the experience and we were treated well by the staff.
We had a very good meal at Rudy's. We were on the early side for dinner, so there wasn't a crowd, and it was quiet. Food was delicious and portions were good. We'll be back!
(U) We love Rudy's. On this occasion the food was excellent as always, but because there was a large gathering at the same time we were there, the service was almost non-existent once that group arrived. We were lucky our food was served before they occupied the attention of the staff. Perhaps Rudy's should consider bringing on an extra server for occasions when they know there will be a large group. Please don't let this review stop you from going to Rudy's! They serve authentic Turkish food -- have a great selection of options, and the food is always excellent, many dishes are truly outstanding and the servers are wonderful and helpful. They also serve breakfast and a brunch on weekends - we are so glad Columbia is their home!
My friends and I loved and enjoyed delicious foods including Turkish homemade dessert. People there were friendly as usual and fully satisfied!! Worthy to drive there from DC and Baltimore.
Enjoyed spinach pie; wish there was more pie and no rice. Stuff is attentive and the atmosphere is inviting.
At first I was surprised as I did not know it was in a bit of an industrial area - but it was quite nice, good food, many options
Although located in a strip mall, the food at Rudy's was delicious. Bright, fresh flavors.
We return to Rudy’s for a very good Greek oriented menu, a good & reasonably priced wine list and as always excellent customer service.,
We’ve eaten at Rudy’s many times and they never disappoint. Wonderful food, awesome service, great atmosphere.
What a lovely surprise in a small strip mall in Columbia, MD, just off of Route 95! I had a Local Flavor coupon for this restaurant (that gets great ratings) - but shortly after arriving found it was valid for dinner only. No worries, the Sunday brunch menu was both intriguing and had a lot of different options, including a $25 menu for three courses.
My friend and I decided to veer off into the regular lunch menu. She got the babaganoush, and I got the falafel and hummus appetizers for starters. The babaganoush was definitely a "1" - with no spices or tahini - just rather stringy eggplant. However, the falafel and hummus was delish, so we dug into that! Then, she ordered an appetizer combo - there were so many delicious vegetarian offerings...including about seven or so things like hummus, spicy eggplant, spicy pepper spread, zucchini, feta and dill pancakes (not really, but sort of), stuffed grape leaves and feta cheese stuffed filo fried "cigars"...so yum!
I had the Adna Kabab wrap, and it was so good - with lamb and lettuce wrapped in pita with yogurt. I added a falafel and hummus from my appetizer to it, and it was really satisfying. We ordered the baklava for dessert, which was served with three tiny squares - we wanted more! We drank endless iced tea and visited without being bugged (and left an extra amount to the tip for the unrushed service.) While it was a bit pricey for the dishes (averaged $18 - $25 for lunch), I still want to go back and try some of the other dishes!
The food is absolutely delicious: the kebabs are perfectly seasoned and melt in your mouth. Try the Doner Kebab, which is scrumptious, and the desserts, which are wonderful. We are also delighted by the variety of cocktails and highly recommend the bourbon and tart cherry "Madame Istanbul". We have been to many Middle Eastern restaurants and this one is our favorite.
Love this restaurant ! Delicious food and fantastic service and atmosphere! Wonderful kind waiters and waitresses.
excellent food generous portions great service.
Rudy’s is a family favorite because it’s the most authentic Turkish food you can get outside of Turkey. The ambience is wonderful, great for conversation. The service is quintessential Turkish hospitality. The food is fresh and hand-made. The desserts are to die for. I always bring friends here to experience a taste of my culture. :)
First time visit and it will not be our last. The service was excellent. Very friendly waiters and waitress. They made us feel special. Lamb chops and Kabobs were to die for! We recommend this great restaurant!
A nice place if you want a formal Restaurant. It was a traditional type of formal and too old school for my taste.
The service was simply outstanding! The waiter was both very professional and very friendly. Not only did he introduce himself, but he brought some of his colleagues by the table and introduced them, too. He had a great sense of humor!
The food was served rather quickly and it was delicious. The bread was incredibly soft and the margarita that he prepared was one of the best that I have had in awhile.
Lots of great choices on the menu for a finicky eater like myself. I told the manager that I would be recommending his restaurant to our basketball lunch group.
The service wasn’t great and the food was OK but also not great. Overcooked meat and under seasoned veggies. Not terrible but for the price I expected more. I could have had better tasting Mediterranean food from a fast casual price and spent less money. The servers were strange about coming over and getting our drinks/Oder.
This was our second visit to Rudy's and we were not disappointed. The food was as good as the first time. We went with family who do not eat meat and there was plenty on the menu for all. And -- the service was excellent!! Friendly, attentive; we could not have asked for a better experience.
Superb Turkish food, consistent quality, amazing prices. Quiet little strip mall.
I have loved Rudy's since it opened and have frequently gone there with family and friends.
I was so happy to see how busy they were; the service never faltered.
Love the food. It is authentic, made with fresh ingredients and good options for vegetarians.
I recommend it a lot.
Food was outstanding. I ordered the chicken kabob, which came with rice and salad. The chicken could have been dried out but it wasn't. Service was spotty, and very slow. It seemed that our waiter either frequently forgot about us or was trying to juggle too many tables and was overwhelmed.
Tuesday night live jazz was mot enjoyable!
Great service. All the food we ordered was very good except for the lamb sheesh kebab was little burnt and was a bit drier. The desserts were great...!!
