Turkish Delight

We love this restaurant, they make you feel like family. Sometimes the service is slow don't expect a quick in and out. I love the yogurt kebabs, we always get the Mediterranean platter for an appetizer. The don't have a liquor license but you can bring in your own beer or wine.

Best Greek food in Cary. The best Turkinsh tea also. The best part is the service. Always done with great cheer and a big smile!

We have eaten at Bosphorus on many occasions and the food and service has always been excellent. The wait staff is always friendly and willing to please. The recent expansion of the dining area is a plus.

By far the best Middle Eastern -style food in the area, this family-owned restaurant is friendly and welcoming. We love the variety of appetizers and breads so much that we rarely order main courses. Save room for baklava!

We ate at Bosphorus for father's day. We were shown to our seat without delay, though we had not made a reservation. The dining area is non-descript with pictures from Turkey on the wall. This is a strip mall establishment and not a place for a romantic dinner. We had no issues with the food. Each course was fresh and... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with a party of four. Even at 6:30pm the tables were starting to fill. We ordered the Stuffed Grape Leaves, Hummus, and Cigar Bourek a an appetizer to share with the table. My son and I had the Adana Kabob which was advertised as spicy hot. We didn't think it was spicy... More

always cracking you up... fun and with a pun and a plate.... our waiter has to enjoy his job 110%. Food is good.... a relief from the usual fare. Med-eastern food with a Turkish spin.
