We had an absolutely wonderful meal here last week for a birthday celebration. The restaurant looks very unassuming in a bland little strip mall. Inside we found two dining rooms; one very elegant and bistro-like, the other deep red and middle-eastern cozy. The food was out of this world. We tried the sampler cold appetizers and could not have been... More

We have been coming here almost every week for almost 4 years. We have eaten most if the menu items, but prefer the gyros, chicken shish and gyro beyti( either lamb or chicken). The lunches are a steal at $8.95 for appetizer, entree and tea. Our favorite restaurant for Arlington or Mansfield.

What is not to like about white tablecloths, fresh flowers, great food and service with moderate prices ?? We have been eating at Istanbul Grill for several years and appreciate all they have to offer. I can't imagine them being called rude or the food not being top quality! Arlington does not have a truly Mediterranean restaurant other than Istanbul... More

Absolutely one of the most horrible restaurants I've been to.....staff was rude as hell, speaking in middle east language most of the time....sent food back twice. Would never go back and would never recommend this place.

Came here with my family for a birthday dinner because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and again the reviews were dead on! This restaurant has excellent food. I had a combo plate with gyro meat and chicken. Both were seasoned perfectly and we're delicious! We had falafels and cigarette borak for appetizers and they were awesome as well. During the... More

We make a point of visiting this fabulous spot at least once a month and have shared it with friends and family. Entering begins the pleasant experience where low lighting, candles, and white table cloths greet the eye and soft Turkish music is playing overhead. There is a perceptible accent from the hosts, and just a bit of formality as... More

Became a fan of Middle Eastern food while living in Phoenix. Wanted to find something decent when we moved to Arlington, and found this little place on Yelp. Very good food, everything we tried. Planning to go back. You should go !!

The Istanbul Grill is one of those hidden treasures that usually only locals know about. We, having only lived in the DFW Metroplex for a little over a year, had been recommended this restaurant but had never been there. What a pleasant surprise to find this amazingly good restaurant located in an assuming strip mall in South Arlington, TX. It... More

I would drive past Istanbul Grill often and finally convinced the hubby to try it. What a great place! The atmosphere is perfect for a date, business lunch or a dinner with the family (perhaps better if your children are older.) The menu is filled with delicious, fresh, meals-from the appetizers to desert, it's all fantastic! The belly dancer is... More

Wow, it was rated number 1 in Arlington...wasn't sure it deserved this rating, so we went! We were wonderfully surprised. Right away you feel at home in the small atmosphere and we were greeted almost instantly when we walked in the door. We were seated right at the juncture of the main front room and the 'back' side area. Worked... More
