This place is just near my friends house and I ate there several time during my stay. The food is great Turkish food at a very reasonable price.

The restaurant was very crowded, but the service was prompt and good. The personnel were friendly, and we did not feel harried. There was quite a big selection on the menu, many of which looked interesting. We ordered two dishes; turkish noodles and eintopf (lamb stew). Both the dishes were very good, the eintopf was fantastic. Would definitely visit Istanbul... More

We've eaten at the Istanbul many times, and it's superb every time. A sign of it's quality is that it's crowded almost every time we go. Plan to wait for a table, especially on a Saturday. All the food is extremely well done. We lived in Turkey for two years and this is authentic Turkish food.. Yesterday I had the... More

I've been to the place once in winter and once in summer. It's very cozy outside in summer. The food is as always very delicious. It's not really cheap place, but the food is worth the price.

Took my family there based on reviews from friends. We had doner plates, kebab plates (lamb and chicken) and hummus. Doner plates were really tasty, but at the end of the day, just doner meat. The lamb kebab was great. Super moist and great seasoning. Chickan kebab was good, but slight under cooked. The hummus was also just fair. Nothing... More

We made the mistake of not ordering meals. Instead we had a pide which was very good, an Adana durum and a doner kebab. The Adana and doner were average; we've had better at doner stands. Lesson learned is to order meals and skip the sandwiches here.

Most people ordered the doner plate--a huge portion of meat, pilaf and salad. The bread is great. On a Saturday at 1 pm, people were standing waiting for a table, even though this is a reasonably large restaurant. The location is excellent, on the main square where the Saturday market is held.

Had lunch at Istanbul yet again. This is the best Turkish we've eaten in Germany -- and we've tried many restaurants! This is an everytime in Mannheim meal. We had nice weather and ate outside in the sun/clouds. Service and food were outstanding as usual.

We went there with a group of 6 girls and had lunch. It's located in the city of Mannheim, very nice, they also have outdoor seats. For lunch time it was really crowded, we ordered several dishes of which I can recommend the lentil soup and lamp chop. It was very tasteful. I had a Lahmacun, it was ok but... More
