Stopped in late on a Sunday night, reception was great. Mixed mezzo starter was fresh and tasty, followed up with a mixed grill which was probably the best lamb I've had

Found by chance, excellent fresh turkish. The goats cheese starter was rich and flavoured, and the main courses were clearly served in a fresh sauce - very tasty. Gather it gets busy later evening so early is better

Went here because Efes has disappeared and the food was better. In fact the food was very good and reasonable, as were the drinks. Service was good If you like Greek/Turkish food then this is a good place to go

So here you have a great choice to enjoy a Turkish cuisine experience: authentic, tasty, spiced, home made, varied...and then service is super attentive.

Went to this restaurant on a wednesday night for a friend's birthday. It was packed. There was no background music and no special lighting. It was not particularly "turkish" in its decor or atmosphere. In a way it was good that we could hear each...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

Marylebone is one stylish neighbourhood and Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant Ishtar is up to the challenge. The decor is smart and modern, with dining on two levels, including under cellar arches, very cosy. The menu includes all the things you love in Middle Eastern cooking, but updated. Try starter of grilled king prawns with garlic and parsley sauce, main course of grilled fillet of lamb with pastirma. Turkish coffee and wines are an absolute requirement.
