This is hands down the best Baklava I have ever eaten. My husband and I don't even split an order, we each order our own.

Exceptional service! Food was great! The babaghannouj was delicious. Lamb kabobs were the perfect choice for my first time visit. An appetizer, lunch portion entree and drink for $10. You can't beat it!

Want to go on a "Magic Carpet Ride" ? Who would have thought the Istanbul Strait ran through South Arlington in a shopping strip center! This charming restaurant with its host of gracious staff and proprietors would be a delight even if the food wasn't fabulous. It is gem with great ambience. Tables with a mini vase of fresh flowers,... More

This place was wonderful! I can see why it is #1 on TripAdvisor for Arlington. If there is one time that I will use the word "gem" to describe a restaurant, it is for the Istanbul Grill. The other night we were in the mood for Mediteranean or Middle Eastern food. This spot is very conveniently located only 10 minutes... More

Came here for a family dinner and had a great one, far and away the best find over several trips to DFW area. I usually avoid restaurants in a strip mall setting, but this one had such great reviews that we had to try it. Good decision. Great prices, great service, great food. The Sultan's Favorite hunkar bagendi, a lamb/eggplant... More

There is a good reason this place is so highly rated. The salmon and chicken were superb. The hot falafel and greens were fresh and tasty. And we felt right at home.

What a charming place with fantastic food! ATMOSPHERE: Very classy, small restaurant with white tablecloths and napkins, charming. SERVICE: They are very attentive and professional. FOOD: The appetizer plate was excellent with fresh, warm pita bread. Wish I had ordered an extra plate of Babbaghanoush and Tabouli as they were both some of the best I've had. The lamb shish...

The first thing is me and my wife and two-year-old son who is teething and had to be taken home from a choir concert were starving and showed up at the place just before closing time and it was empty.They fired up the grill for us and feed us one of the best meals I have ever eaten. We got... More

Do not let the location- in a strip shopping mall- deter you from this treasure. The food is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just writing this review makes me want to get in the car and go back again. I have to date not had a bad dish @ Istanbul Grill. One of my favorite ethnic locations.... More
