Very good place for a nice quiet and excellent meal. Service top notch from the staff. Head server, Unor, takes a personal interest in each customer. Baklava is the best in Cary. Authentic Turkish food. Can’t wait for the expansion to be completed.

Tried for first time yesterday nite. The place was pack, we sat outside while we wait for our table, they had no problem to accommodate us inside when a table became available. Food is delicious, order the cigar and the plate with the humus, tabouli, baba ganush, yummy!!! and as a main dish we had the one that combined the... More

This is a fun place tucked away in downtown Cary. Wonderful food with the ability to share and combine. BYOB makes it very reasonable. It is small and you can order take-out.

We had never eaten Turkish food before but saw these reviews and had to try. We ordered the cigar appetizer, chicken pizza boat and the meat tray. The food was so rich in flavor that even our picky children ate it and liked it! The only disappointment was they don't serve kid drinks (i.e. milk, juice or lemonade) only soda.... More

I've been here before and liked the food, but tonight was a not-so-great experience. I ordered the Meze platter to share, and it was ok, except for the stuffed grape leaves, which my friend and I agreed were the worst we've ever had. The leaves were coarse and tough, very stemmy tasting. The stuffing was tasteless and either stale or... More

I've only been here 3 times so far, and we already love this place! I've had the Gyro sandwich, Gyro plate, and Ali Nazik. They were all exceptional and the Ali Nazik was a truly unique dish like nothing else I've ever had. Also, their "pide bread" is unique compared to what I'm used to, but this is a good... More

OK... so the personality of the waiter/owner is what gave true flavor to the meal and atmosphere. Our server was great.. no doubt the reason for much returned business. The Mediterranean flavors with a heavy handed menu item list of Turkish delights was the food I was weaned on. We ate as a family. 7 of us total. Place was... More

Lahmacun and pide taste great here. If you are looking for a good Turkish restaurant look no more. Kebabs are also great. They are fairly quick with the food but it is delicious.

Went there for Dinner with my Family. Appetizers were great and the Main Meal ( We selected 2 Kebab Dishes) we excellent and very authentic. The place is owned and operated by a Turkish Family so you know you are getting the real deal. Turkish food is delicious and Bosphorus did not disappoint. Nice outdoor patio.
