If only this restaurant was closer to my house! The lentil soup is out of this world and all other dishes always fresh and delicious. We normally do take-out but on occasion sit down for a meal and the service is always top notch, either way. I almost forgot, the pide is out-of-the-oven fresh and scrumptious!

Well spiced, large portions, reasonably priced with friendly service, quick kitchen, close to 84, and plain but pleasant town decor.

We found this restaurant by using TripAdvisor and I'm glad we did. We had the cold appetizer sampler platter that had plentiful tastings of six of most popular appetizers. They kept the pita bread coming because we didn't want to miss a bite. I had the Imam Bayildi which is stuffed eggplant and my partner had chicken shish kabob. Both... More

Turkish food is one of my favorite cuisines. When I spotted this restaurant near the place I was staying in Waterbury, I knew I had to try it. What can I say? It is fantastic. The food is flavorful, fresh, and with just enough zip. I ordered lentil soup and a small cold appetizer platter. The soup is a full... More

This place went through a change in management a few years ago and went from inconsistently good results to consistently great! My wife and I have gone several times in the past year including take out. The exterior is a bit of a turn off being located right up against I-84 highway and still revealing the reality that it's a... More

It lived up to its very favorable Yelp reviews. The place is large, the service friendly and the Turkish menu quite extensive even if conventional. We had the hot platter and a variety of main courses and the food was average to good but I don't think you can complain about Turkish food in Connecticut off a highway.

It's a good thing this restaurant is outside the reasonable driving-for-dinner radius or else we'd be here once a week. This was probably our third or fourth visit to Sultan's Turkish Restaurant, located in a repurposed Friendly's. On each visit, the staff has been exceedingly pleasant and attentive, and the food is consistently delicious. We were first "turned on" to... More

I noticed this restaurant while strolling nearby my hotel. My first thought was. "Could there possibly be good Turkish food in Waterbury, seriously?" I am glad I decide to take the chance and dine at this fantastic restaurant. I was quickly greeted by a smiling friendly hostess and noticed a live solo musician playing traditional mid-eastern style music which really... More
