We were looking for someplace to have an interesting meal in the vicinity of Waterbury as a convenient midpoint on a family trip, and my wife found "Sultan's" through Trip Advisor. It was rated 1 of 295, and absolutely merits it's high rating. The food was delicious, from hot and cold appetizers through all the entrees. We shared two different... More

We took the kids. the waiter was very accommodating to my kids' needs, and everyone was very pleasant. The food was really good as well. We had a nice experience, and would return when we're in town again.

The restaurant is right off the highway and easy to get to. The place is a bit dimly lit but okay. The menu has a variety of mostly Turkish dishes with a few American tweaks. Everything was extremely tasty and the staff was very gracious and professional. There were some Turkish Families having wedding parties. Large gatherings of well-dressed people... More

A friend and I tried out Sultan's Turkish Restaurant for lunch and were very pleased with our dishes. We each ordered the 3-course lunch that included soup, salad, and an entree. We both ordered lamb (similar to gyro) and it was very good. We finished with Turkish coffee and desserts, which were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful... More

I've been a semi-regular at Sultan's for a few years. The Middle Eastern stand-bys, such as hummus, baba ganouj, and felafel, may disappoint by comparison with Lebanese or Israeli restaurants, but Turkish specialties such as piyaz, kazandibi, and imam bayaldi are wonderful, and the bread is great. Lentil soup seems to vary from good to wonderful, perhaps depending on the... More

What a pleasant surprise! A fantastic find along I-84 of all places! Somewhat nondescript on the outside, but inviting and friendly inside, this place had an authentic family feel right away. The service was excellent and the food was simple but very good (and we are fairly picky with Turkish, Greek and Persian food - having had great versions of... More
