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

We got take out, but once inside I wished we had the time to eat there. Our wraps were fantastic and the staff was very nice.

We dined here on Tuesday June 10th, a quiet night and ate in the outside back patio, where the few patrons that evening were also. The staff was friendly and attentive. The humus was very good, but needed more spices, like pepper or paprika. Also, it would have been nice to have fresh olives free with the bread and humus... More

We've been here many times. The food is good, the service good. I like the Imam Bialdi (the priest fainted). P likes the kebabs. They often host big tables.

Service was very attentive and food was very good. We enjoyed the assorted appetizer plate (shared among the five of us). All mains were good, especially the stuffed eggplant.

My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Istanbul and came away with a love for Turkish food. We've been looking for a good option near home and Sultana is the best reviewed Turkish we've found so far. While not quite as good as the places we dined in Istanbul - Sultana is a great option. My wife... More

Never having eaten at a Turkish restaurant, my friend and I thought this sounded intriguing. The restaurant was spotless, welcoming, and the food was delicious. We split the cold appetizer plate, I had the lamb kebab, and my friend had the "pomegranated" lamb/beef. All were perfectly prepared and wonderful, and the side dishes were, too. My friend had the cheese... More

Our friend from the area was having a birthday and we left the choice of restaurants up to her. She went to Yelp and found Sultana which none of us had ever been to before. What a wonderful surprise. Three of us had the seafood kabob and my wife had the lamb. We also had hot appetizer and desert. What... More

Eating on their patio is fabulous. It's secluded and away from the street. On sunny, cool days it can feel like summer. Their lunch menu is very well priced.

Attended a phenomenal rehearsal dinner here the other night. The food was outstanding, the service was on point, and the atmosphere was so warm and inviting. This is the Turkish food that you go looking for in Turkey. The falafels were some of the best I've had in the area, and the salmon-shrimp kebabs were equally outstanding. People were asking... More
