Consistently good food and service

I have been here several times and am always very pleased with their delicious food and attentive service. The chicken shish and shrimp shish are very flavorful. I love the Shepherd salad and the bread is addictive! The staff is always very pleasant, professional and hospitable. Will be back... read more

We've dinned in this place in the past, lunch time you won't need reservation but for dinner definitely make a reservation. Definitely try their grilled whole sea bass and chicken shish for entree and don't forget to try their baklava and Turkish tea for dessert, one of the better baklava I've taste so far. Staff are friendly and helpful in... More

I have had Turkish food several times in Manhattan. This was very disappointing - and I'm surprised because the reviews are good? There was just no taste to the food - garlic and salt were missing. The hummus was bitter actually. Prices were high, and there were no lunch specials. I will say that the left overs tasted much better... More

The Sultan is clearly a favorite among the local Turkish and non-Turkish community alike. Family groups and large parties. We were seated immediately even though a Saturday evening but the place accommodates plenty. Great bread, good enough wine/beer selection with a Turkish option in each column, great appetizers, entrees, etc. Baklava excellent as were the grape leaves (not in that... More

The food is really good, and pretty traditional as far as I can tell. Everyone enjoyed their meals ("Sultan Bengedi", moussaka, and chicken sote) for about $15 a plate. Service was good until trying to get the check. We stayed a little after the dinner rush so it wasn't packed toward the end. During dinner the belly dancing was going... More

Love this place!!!! We have been here many times and love it every time. The staff are very friendly, they have fresh made food all day every day and it is always very clean. We have tried many things on the menu and have not disliked anything. I get the chicken sauté most of the time and it is great!... More

I cannot rave enough about this incredible restaurant located within sight of I-84, very close to exit 25. We had lamb in a delicious yogurt sauce and falafel as main courses and shared grilled calamari and vegetables as an appetizer. Of course, we finished the meal with baklava. Who could resist that? The ingredients and the seasonings were of the... More

My husband and I tried Sultan's for the first time last weekend and we were beyond impressed! The food was fresh and delicious and the service was both professional and very friendly. We enjoyed the sampler appetizer (the falafel was by far the best we have ever had!) and the lamb and chicken dinners were great. We were given complimentary... More

It's great to see authentic mid eastern food so close to home. Often taken for granted but always consistently good. We always get the dip sampler. I like the lamb kebabs and my daughter, a vegetarian finds plenty of items on the menu.
