Nice Turkish Food

Now operating with the new name Istanbul Cafe. Nice food and environment. Doner Kebab was very good also tried hummus and its the best i have in Malaysia. Very good service and courteous staff. Turkish tea was just ok otherwise everything was perfect.

We have loved this turkish restaurant, simple and affordable, strategically located . The turskish owner was present and his staff very well formed! We broke fast in this place and we cannot wait to come back. This place has a soul, with its old movies pictures on the wall and his turkish coffees influence. Cannot wait to come back. A... More

Had a meal there. Salad horrible. Service so and so. Prices didn't look high, but compared with what you actually get on the plate... Oh no. Tried to complain and was almost literally showed to the door. Never again!

The site, food and service are OK - but beware that you are not up-sold from a medium priced meal, to the top end of the menu. We made the fatal mistake of allowing our order to be 'upgraded' by the owner, without being told, and ended up being charged a ridiculous amount for an average meal. Considering the price... More

Everything we ordered was great. Service was good. The place had free wifi. We went there bcoz options were limited. A lot of restaurants were closed as they open late during ramadaan period, howerver, we were pleasantly surprised. Amazing food. Especially the hummus.... beats every other hummus that i have ever had.

We went looking for Hungry Monkey, but couldn't find it. Istanbul restaurant on the other hand was there in it's place. Owner confirmed it is only a name change. We have after our first visit eaten there several times. Always delicious kebabs, hummus, salads etc. Always friendly and charming staff. A really good place to have dinner in Langkawi. Location...

The service was very good. Food was tasty, good portion, value for money. The dessert is a must try, there is only one dessert on the menu and it was excellent.

Just a great Turkish restaurant serving nice Mediterranean food. Went there for both lunch and dinner during our trip and we love it both times. Our two year old daughter enjoyed playing with the restaurant kitten, called "Kebab"...

If you love Turkish food, you cannot go past the Hungry Monkey when you next visit Langkawi. We stayed in Langkawi for 1 week and ate (or got take-away) 3 times. It is great food and a lovely atmosphere. We love eating here, as does our 4 year old daughter.

I ordered a T bone steak that looked thick, juicy, big and medium rare in the picture on the menu. The actual steak arrived thin, small, well done and covered in black pepper mushroom sauce. When I rejected the meal, the owner and another person (lady) became abusive, insisting that I pay for the meal and then pay full price... More
