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

Unassuming outside, but a trip to Turkey is on the other side of the door. Generous portions - the mixed grill and app sampler are enough for 4 and an excellent way to try the very tasty food.

Although the atmosphere is definitely not appealing (inside or outside), the food was incredibly good. We had a late lunch and ordered the cold appetizer plate and mixed grill. Both were delicious - also the bread! Prices are reasonable, but not inexpensive. My only complaint is that the waiter should have told my husband that the small appetizer plate would... More

After enjoying lunch here, I brought my wife back for dinner last month, on our way to New York. If you are someone who judge's a restaurant by the bread, then this will immediately be your favorite. The complimentary bread offered at Sultan's is as good as any I've had, anywhere. My wife had falafel's which she decreed to be... More

We go to sultans as much as we can. The food is always fresh and the service is always respectful friendly and attentive. Get the lamb shank when it's on special and always get the beyti! It is unbelievable
