Very good Turkish food, and some dishes were excellent. Don't miss the pumpkin soup. Menu broader than the usual Turkish restaurant. Staff was very friendly, welcoming, attentive, willing to spend time discussing spices in different dishes, and made the dining experience a pleasure. Will go again next time I'm in Baltimore. Best to sit as far from the bar as... More

This is Turkish food at its finest. I often enjoy ordering one of the many fine lunch items (including the pides, kebabs, and the ottoman feast) on my lunch break, and it has never disappointed. The quality of the various breads cannot be overstated. Highly recommended.

Located near our hotel (Hotel Monaco Baltimore), we gave Cazbar a try -- and I'm very glad we did! It's an attractive restaurant, and the food was absolutely delicious. We couldn't decide what to order, so on the advice of our waiter, we tried their Taste of Cazbar set meal. It was a 3 course meal including an appetizer plate,... More

I was in Turkey a couple months ago and fell in love with the food there. Tried Cazbar as soon as I got back... The food was delicious, authentic, and served attractively. Excellent lamb, and lots of options for vegetarians. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, but not intrusive. The decor is great -- cozy and a bit exotic. The... More

We were in Turkey earlier this month & loved the food. When we got home we investigated whether there was a Turkish restaurant in Baltimore. What a pleasant surprise to find there is one so close to where we live. The atmosphere was great! The food was excellent! We got the Sultan's platter which gave us a taste of a... More

My husband and I frequent Cazbar and love everything they make. The sultan's platter is delicious (a good sampling of many of their offerings). I love the lamb moussaka and the pides.

I had never been to a Turkish restaurant before. The food here is very good, the wait staff are knowledgeable to help you make your selections. Great place for an introduction to the cuisine. They also have a belly dancer on the weekends.

I've been coming here for years, even when I lived in PA. The lamb, hummus, ezme, lahmacun, shrimp w tomato and feta, & manti are my favorite things! Service is always great and I love the atmosphere. On Fri & Sat night they even have belly dancers, music, and hookah.
