the food was great and we will definitely be returning. It's rare to find authentic Middle Eastern cuisine that tastes homemade

Bought into our dining experience with a Groupon, and not a bit disappointed. Not much for ambiance, but solid service, family owned and quite good food. Their spicy vegetable appetizer is no joke for those who enjoy spicy/heat. Be sure to get the Turkish bread. They are not shy with the use of peppers, so may want to ask before... More

I travel for business weekly and happened upon this place initially two months ago. The first time I dined here for dinner, the lamb kabab and shepherd salad I had were amazingly delicious; the place was very busy; and the service was mediocre. Today I stopped in (excitedly and expectantly!) around 3 p.m. as soon as I got into town... More

The address on this restaurant is wrong. It is in Orlando, FL, but the street address is correct. Decent food though.

Being married to a Turk and haven visited Turkey many times, I feel more than qualified to "judge" Turkish food. I have to say, this is the second worse Turkish restaurant I have ever eaten at. First, the AC was broken....must have been 85 + degrees inside but we decided to give it a try anyway. The second negative was... More

Across the street from my local favorite watering hole, I just love the pufffed up bread to dip in hummus! You must try Turkish wine! Any meal I have ordered has been wonderful. And if you happen to be there during belly dancing time....! how fun!

We purchased a groupon thinking it was for Bosphorous on Park Ave. We read the reviews and thought we were in for a comparable dining experience. Boy, were we wrong! Our table cloth looked like it had been left wadded up for days and then thrown on the table. We ordered the baba ganoush and were informed that they don't... More

Must try the lavas bread, it was amazing! I had the Sucuklu Pide (sausage pita), and it was also great. Currently they have bellydancing on Friday nights. The exterior is kind of subtle and hard to spot, right next to Garibaldi's.

I purchased a coupon from Groupon thinking it was to "Bosphorous Turkish cuisine" little did I know it was to a somewhere far away. We gave it a try since we invested $30 in this coupon and it was the best food and great prices. We have found our new economical Turkish restaurant. For the price we were able to... More
