I love the bread at this restaurant! The menu is not huge but the quality of the items is great. I have liked everything I have tried!

Fantastic food and excellent, attentive and friendly service. I've been here twice and often find myself thinking about when I can get back there. They have the best hummus anywhere. The people who work there treat the clientele like friends and family. Don't miss out on this place!

Place itself requires some renovation. Actually they in process of adding bathroom, but some simple changes like putting nice pictures on the walls, changing lighting and so on would be helpful. There are two rooms without waiting area, all tables except one are for four people. Portion of appetizers are not generous and food is not expensive, but it is... More

We had a lunch today at Bosporus. The service was very warm and very good too. I have eaten at Turkish and middle eastern restaurants all over the world and this one rates close to the top. We had the cold apetizer combo which was fresh and delicious. The shepherd salad was very good too. Prices are also very reasonable.... More

Excellent food with great variety. Friendly staff. Weekends can cause long wait for seating. Call ahead to get the lay of the land.

Four of us went for a Saturday lunch. The place was really buzzing! We were greeted promptly, shown to a table, and given menus. Water and bread were soon brought to the table. They were really busy that day and it took a while for them to return and take our orders. The service was, however, friendly as can be... More

Finally, the Bosphorus is expanding their space! Delicious food, wonderful tea, and the best service in the area. If you want to talk, relax and have a fantastic, reasonably priced meal, this is the place for you

We were looking for something close to our daytrip destination in Cary and found this place on Tripadvisor. The reviews were good so we gave it a try for lunch. I have enjoyed Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food in the US and in the Middle East and I would rank their food right up there with the best. We were... More
