SOLID TURKISH FARE - NICE OWNERS that CARE

If visiting the area - you can do much worse, price and food quality wise than joining us at this great local, family run Turkish restaurant. Solid kabobs and grilled meats and salads.

I went to this restaurant for dinner after reading that it was one of the top restaurants at Menlo Park. I was disappointed as: 1) The staff were poorly trained. They did not know anything about the wines they had and also when I asked for a mocktail, they had no idea what it was, so i settled for a... More

Comfy indoor and outdoor seating. The best Mediterranean dishes in Menlo Park can be found here- including the Pomegranated Kebab, Babaganoush and Spanakopita. Truly attentive and wonderful service each and every time.

Found on El Camino Real, this restaurant is friendly, great for a quick meal and the food is delicious. I had their home-made hummus dip - yum. Followed by their Beyti Kebab which I hadn't had before, and it was delicious, albeit I couldn't finish it. Turkish coffee to finish, one happy customer! Did I mention it's also very affordable?...

I love this place for weekday lunches, good value. The patio is secluded and can be nicely warm on cooler days.

On an impulse we stopped at Sultana. Very clean with friendly service. Menu contains Middle Eastern specialties. We had a order of the Beef Shish-Kebab and the Sultana Wraps. Both lunch items were very tasty and were attractively served. They have outside dining on a rear patio. Parking in the rear, as well.

This is the first Turkush restaurant I've found in the U.S. the fare is rather a hybrid of Greek, Middle Eastern and Persia. Some of the best lamb chops I've ever had. And the red lentil soup should not be missed.

We have been going to Sultana since the day it opened and love not only the food, but the family who owns and runs it. In a world of formula restaurants, it is so refreshing to go to an authentic restaurant that is faithful to the amazing flavors and recipes of Turkey.

Everything I've had here has been good but I love the combo appetizer plate. It is big enough to share with several people. Wraps are really big to, good to share.

We returned to Sultana after years of staying away for 5 yeas and regret our return. The reviews are absurd....the food and service is substantially terrible. The appetizer (mezes) starter was promising...good actually. The mains, including the much ballyhood Pomagranite kebab, barely edible. My adana kebab was cold and tasteless...I sent it back ant it returned...cold and tasteless...they didn't have... More
