“Excellent lunch deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I came here with a couple of friends who have eaten here before. I ordered the 2 course special - humous to start with followed by doner with rice and salad. Both dishes excellent. Friendly staff - will definitely return :-)

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyable evening at Istanbul Grill. The mixed platters were delicious. Like to try the other similar restaurant across the road, looks more funky against Istanbul's classic setting. Well worth a visit.

“A change from curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Tasty without being fiery! Four of us went - we had hot and spicy chicken, lamb, chicken kebab and moussaka - all very good.

Dear Guest
I am pleased to hear you have enjoyed your change from Curry. We had many customers with similar views like yours, it is a nice change for them from Curry or Italian. It is actually getting very popular Middle Eastern / Turkish Cuisine. People fed up of eating same food over the years and Istanbul Grill becoming a refreshing change.
Many thanks
Kind Regards

“Visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

we are always made very welcome at the restaurant , the food is delicious and lots of it, if you have a starter it's quite hard to finish the main course, but we do! Service is excellent and very friendly and the free Turkish delight at the end is the best you've had. Overall a good night out.

“Very good Value quality Turkish Restaurant Prestwich, marvellous.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We visited the Istanbul Turkish Restaurant for lunch on a Saturday afternoon,

The service and staff was excellent, they were very friendly, explained the menu well, took the orders in a timely fashion and chatted about our holiday to Turkey.

We took advantage of the daily 2 course for £7.50 menu and ordered Felalfel with Salad and Humous salad, a diced chicken with spinach chilli and salad, a rice and dips with Pitta bread a coke and coffee. total was £18, I thought this was very good for freshly cooked food and the food was very tasty and plentiful, we left some as we were full up.

The restaurant looks spotless well designed and new, we were left alone to chat for an hour without being bothered to order more or pay.

The main difference to the Turkish place across the street is that here at the Istanbul the staff are friendly and its a lot more organized here you don't have to wonder if your meals and drinks are on their way yet or have to chase them up for things, here you just relax and it all happens very smoothly.

WE highly recommend the Istanbul, we really enjoyed our meals and the ambiance of the place.

We will return again.
