The Cazbar is Baltimore’s first and only Turkish Restaurant located at the heart of the Historic Charles Street District. We feature authentic Turkish cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. We are open daily for Lunch and Dinner. Join us on Friday or Saturday nights for our exotic Belly Dancing shows and our new lounge. In addition, we have two very unique and beautiful banquet rooms that can accommodate an intimate dinner for 2 or a gathering for 100. If you’re in the mood for something light, visit us at our Kebap House in Columbia, Maryland. For corporate, residential, or hotel catering, please contact me at chef@cazbarbaltimore.com I invite you to join us for a unique dining experience at the Cazbar. -Haluk Kantar Chef / Owner

Interesting and Filling

We arrived at Cazbar during Restaurant Week, and it was nearly empty at 8 pm on a Monday. There was an additional stuffed chicken item on the menu that hadn't been advertised, and I tried that while my wife had a vegetarian dish. Neither one of us could even begin to finish our meals - after the... read more

Nice waitress, great food. Maybe the best meal I've ever eaten! I don't remember the name of it, but it contained lamb. The cuisine is Turkish, which I was not familiar with, but many items seemed of Greek origin. Great food!

We've been here before and have overall liked the food and service. Our most recent time was not too different. Our server, Mizi, was very friendly and attentive. The food was not quite as good as we have had in the past. For example, the chicken in our shared "Tour of Cazbar" had a funny taste to it (sorry to... More

Great spot for a date night when visiting Baltimore! The best food we ate at Cazbar was the Grape Leaves - which they make with pine nuts and currants - they have plenty of vegetarian entree options, but the one I chose (vegetable casserole) wasn't that exciting. My husband had the stuffed eggplant which was much better. Overall, we would... More

The food, service, and price are all great here. I have been a couple times and each time order something different. Except for the hummus. Which is hands down the best I have had.

We wanted something different - and this was it! We had the Cazbah meal for 4 - delicious although enough for another 2 people. The appetizer was tasty - our 11 year old loves the beets, 12 year old tried lots of samples, but saved himself for all the meat of the main course. The salad reminded us of Israeli... More

Tge place is very nice, it has two levels. Upstairs is better!!. The dance show starts at 10 pm. In my opinion if you are going to bring little children do it during the day. If you are going at night don't bring children. They have valet parking, finding parking there on your own it's hard. Great place.

Four of us had dinner at the Cazbar on May 30, 2015. They serve a lamb dish with lamb chops, lamb kebob and adana lamb, which is mince spiced lamb roasted on a skewer. One was tastier than the other and the portion size was very large. In fact, if you have appetizer (which also were excellent) you could share... More

unfortunately our experience with the restaurant was disappointing. we had a kofta and french fries both were heated and were tasteless, may be other plates are better, but if a place wants to keep its high rating with T.O they should always serve good and fresh food ,.
