Worth the trip!

We had been stuck in lots of traffic while driving back home to Massachusetts (after Thanksgiving) when we decided to take a break and find a restaurant around the area.

We ate dinner with a group of 9. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, and everyone tried a different plate. The portions are large and the food tastes authentic. The bread was also delicious. Great place for Turkish food!!

Bright and cheerful, great service. The variety of food is quite good, We had an appetizer platter that I loved, and the bread is freshly baked too. The main course of beef was a little dry, and the salad helped. The Red Lentil Soup was wonderful. The desserts are very good too! Would go back to sample more entrees

Having traveled to Turkey I was hoping that the Kebab House would measure up to what I had experienced and it surpassed it. What made it all the more authentic was the fact all the other guests were not speaking English and by their dress the women were devout muslims.

I have been to the restaurant several times and think that it is a bit better for dinner. The most recent lunch seemed a bit skimpier than I recall. The selection is good and the quality is too. Not much ambience, but a laid back and comfortable place for meat eaters and vegetarians. Chicken kebab, lamb dishes, meze food all... More

Best Turkish food in town. Enough choices for vegetarians as well. Mixed grill is terrific. Other lamb dishes are also great . My favorite is Adana Kebab.

This is a tiny little place but the food was delicious. Humus was good and the bread was hot. Shishkabob was tender/tasty and there was plenty on the plate for the price. The waitress was very sweet. This will definitely be a go to place when visiting son at school.

The Turkish Kabab House is my favorite restaurant in the New Haven/West Haven CT area. Most of the patrons seem to be from Turkey or other Middle eastern countries. My favorite main dish is the chicken shish kabab but they also have a great lamb donor kabab as well as vegetarian dishes. For appetizers they have haydari, baba gannouj, humus,... More

This restaurant is located across the street from New Haven University. My wife and I were somewhat familiar with Turkish cuisine and really enjoyed dining here tonight. Our daughter also thoroughly enjoyed her meal which was evident by her willingness to devour a perfectly prepared charcoal grilled Sea Bass. I had an excellent grilled Trout. The only minor point I... More
