Good food and nice atmosphere

Came and ate here on a Friday night just on the May bank holiday with my mum and brother and found the food to be very tasty (the dessert in particular was lovely) and the service prompt. The restaurant got busier throughout our time there which I always view as a good sign, making the atmosphere... read more

I have visited the Istanbul Restaurant many times over the past few year, the food is always of a high standard, excellent quality and delicious. The service is always first class and very attentive and if you visit on a warm sunny day you may get a table outside so you really feel like you are on holiday. I will... More

We've eaten here on a number of occasions and each time enjoyed the whole experience. It's on the seafront and so in the early evening or afternoon sitting outside is an option to enjoy the pier and sea views or later on to take in the sunsets! The service has always been very good and never rushed. For the food... More

We have been to the Istanbul before for an evening of belly dancing and food and it was great fun. This time we went to just appreciate the venue, the food and the location. The food was delicious and lots of it. The staff were very attentive and it has a lovely atmosphere. There is a huge choice on the... More

For first-class Turkish cuisine, immaculate attention and a well-priced menu and wine list, this is the place to go in Worthing. A family party of six had the best possible Sunday lunch there, today. Very many thanks to the Istanbul and its charming staff.

Went for a meal last weekend with my partner (his first visit) and we were extremely impressed. The Istanbul Kofte is delicious and we ended up sharing each others dishes. Will definitely be going back over the summer for more dinners

I thought it would be busier as it was really nice food, had a halloumi starter which was nice, and lamb kofte meatballs for main which were absolutely amazing!
