“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

In Baltimore for appointment at Mercy Medical Center. Didn't expect to find some a Turkish delight just 2 blocks away. Atmosphere was warm and cozy and enjoyed their lunch special which included a delicious red lentil soup with just the right amount of spice to warm us on a very cold day. This was followed by Ezme (salad) and then Stuffed Eggplant which was just the right size for lunch. Service was efficient and pleasant - never pushy. A great new find on Charles St.

“Best Doner in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We love middle eastern food and especially doner kebab. We have tried it at many restaurants but the best is at Cazbar. They also have great cocktails and interesting housemade sodas.

“MOST EXCELLENT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

The restaurant is small but the food & atmosphere were exceptional. The lamb dishes were great as were the appetizers. Service was excellent - the wait staff provided a lot of insight into the food. This is a must try.

“Delightful freshness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

During business trip to Baltimore desired to have something unavailable in my hometown. Stumbled upon this restaurant and was floored by the great service from the staff and freshness of my meal. Enjoyed the Patlican Sarme, the eggplant was the best I have ever enjoyed in a restaurant and the fresh basil was exactly that 'fresh'. Main course of Chicken Shish Kabap was moist and very flavorful. I know where I will eat, the next time I am in Baltimore.
