Every year we travel to California and as we stay near Castro Street we visit Cafe Baklava. One of our friends said on our arrival, when are we going to Cafe Baklava? This should speak for itself. The menu is varied and the selections good.

Good family sit down place with warm bread to start. Portion sizes are small but the food is delicious. We tried the soup, eggplant and the stuffed artichoke which was really unique and tasty. The soup is decent and the portions are right for 2 people. Falafel was not the best as it was a bit dark but overall tasty... More

We live in Mt. View. Eat out frequently and this is one of our staples. My husband usually orders the lamb chops and he says it is better than New Zealand, where they have more lambs than people. He says grilled perfectly. I usually order fish. They have salmon and dorado and trout at different times and I like them... More

We use to eat at this place every time we go to the SJC area. Food used to be good as well as service but our last experience wasn't so great. We waited for more than 40 minutes to get the food. Service was awful and one of the waiters hadn't take a shower or didn't use deodorant. Imagine the... More

My experience with three people was a good to very good. I like Turkish Food, I recommend the ground lab kebab as the best dish, its the signature dish for this restaurant. The meat dishes are spicy, which I like, vegetables could be better. The combo plate is good if you prefer a variety of meats, lamb and chicken kebab... More

Why not have Turkish food the next time you are out? Maybe the lamb chop special or mousaka or one of the kabob dishes? You won't be sorry! The chef at Cafe Baklava knows how to season every dish just right. The sides--rice and veggies--compliment the flavors of the entrees so they never seem like after thoughts. The wine list... More

I have been a very long time ago, with friends that adore the place. Food was OK, not much more. Dishes were generous. Overall the place has a nice ambiance, very pleasant with a relaxed atmosphere.

This is on our annual visit destinations and never disappoints. This time around we visited in the evening and I didn't see a favorite of mine on the menu so I asked and the staff person said, "I can make that for you." Wonderful. We had one of their new 'Black Sea Pide' offerings and a variety of other dishes.... More

I have been at this restaurant before. I love Turkish food and that is the reason I recommended a friend to go there for dinner. But my this visit didn't go so well. They have made some mistaken changes to their menu. My dish last night was not good at all. I went to dinner with a friend neither he... More
