Nice ambiance, tasty food for good price

We had lunch in the bazar. It's a large restaurant, but they have 3 floors so it still feels a bit intimate. The food and style are mid eastern. The food is not exquisite but good price/quality.

When my partner visited Rotterdam last time, she already made her mind to visit this popular restaurant. The restaurant was really busy when we went there around 7pm, and we waited for the table for another 40 minutes. Had a pint of beer during the waiting and the service was ok. We ordered the special meat menu for dinner. That's... More

Loved the food here! Very fresh and flavorful.. Service was quick.. Except dessert took long. Baklava was not as great as I would have expected it to be. Fabulous interiors and good food!

Pretty authentic Turkish place with nice starters, good meat and rice. Crowded so reservation is recommended. Prices are reasonable, service is fast enough

Good atmosphere, food was good, but i prefer having my beer served in a glass, not all over my sweater. I do see that everybody can make mistakes, but if you spill a whole beer over your guest the waiter should at least apologize, and not just say; "oh, this has never happened before." If they had tried to come... More

A place to enjoy yourself without any worries. It might get a bit noisy, but is in line with the atmosphere. The food is good, prices are reasonable. Don't go there to have a profound experience. Make a reservation for Fridays or Saturdays.

Spread over three floors and packed most evenings but surprisingly the service is quick and food good.The portions are quite large so you might want to consider sharing.

This restaurant is found in connection with the Hotel Bazar hotel in Rotterdam. I had not researched anything before-hand and just ended up here for a late lunch / early dinner. And I have to say I was pleasantly pleased. The food is middle-eastern with a western twist (more fast food than "real" mid-east food). I had the pork ribs... More

Atmosphere is very mid eastern, music was a bit loud but endurable. Food is very very good, but quite greasy. Consider eating here if you want to have that "if I'm eating unhealthy today then let me do it the right way"-meal.

Went here on a whim after walking past, did not regret it! Get the bizar bazar: great spread of dishes, and available as meat, fish or vegetarian.
