Great Turkish food and friendly staff

The food here is top notch, some of the best Turkish food I've ever had. The menu has a lot of variety from kebabs to Turkish Pizza, and every thing I have had was delicious. The owner is possibly the friendliest person I have ever met, who would excitedly greet me whenever I came in, even if it... read more

Some friends who know our liking for Med food recommended that we try this place. It is small and friendly, and the folks who run it really know how to lay on the Turkish food. My spouse has lived in Greece and visited Turkey on several occasions - and knows what the good stuff tastes like. This is it. This... More

The real mediteran-turkish within 150 miles. When we choose some thing else than Bosphorus, we always regret. The kitchen more than good, they are f* awsome. The service always polite, and duty full. If you wish taste the Mediterranean you can trust him, and just him. Choose wisely the dinner time, they are extra busy after 6:15 pm. In the... More

Was invited here during winter storm Jonas. The food was very good, Shish kabab was awesome. After some nudging they even provided mint for youghurt drink. Hot Turkish tea very good in the cold.

i have been to bosphorus no fewer than 20 times and I have never had a bad meal or an off day there. the lentil soup, pide (pizza), greek salad, mezze platter and mixed kebabs are our favorites. it's great to go in a big group to share it all! BYOB as well which can be fun.

Very tasty, excellent for the price, accommodating if you want a particular item left out of a dish, the bread and oil were unique and quite good. Comfortable seating. Shrimp appetizer and the spinach pie were real favorites.

Our favourite place to eat in Cary. Their recent expansion makes it much more accessible on the weekend, great Turkish food with excellent service.

We've been to Bosphorus several times! It's nothing fancy but it's the perfect casual spot for something a little different! We love sitting on the patio and usually get one of the delicious "Pizzas". In fact everything we've ever ordered has been fabulous! Give them a try!

have visited twice now and both times have enjoyed excellent food. Service has been mostly spot on but had to endure a short wait for our check the 2nd time. Other than that, we'll be back to enjoy the food.

The irony of this review is that I have no photo to share because every time I come to Bosphorous (and I've been here multiple times) I completely forget to take photos of the food because I tend to dive right in. The Yogurt kabab is my personal favorite entree, with the kufta. The apps are ridiculously good! Hands down... More
