A hidden gem for Turkish cuisine, Saray has for years been my wife and my favorite restaurant. BYOB. The food is excellently prepared. Service is stellar, their staff has been with the restaurant for years. A place where families can gather and enjoy good food in a pleasant, not rushed environment.

Saray is a family operation where they truly care for their customers. We enjoy the ambiance. We like a particular table and the staff usually will accommodate us. You can bring your own Wine which is good for the wallet. The food choices are terrific and delicious.

We frequently go to Saray and the food is always excellent and fresh. The service is quick and friendly. Try the grill meat dishes, so good! Leave room for dessert! I love the Kanzadibi (a custard).

Went with turkish relatives and ordered an assortment of dishes. Felt like we were back in Istanbul!! The freshness of the vegetables, the variety of spices The meats and chicken deliciously prepared. You have to leave space for the various desserts with honey, phyllo doe, and nuts. Terrific service on a busy Saturday.

Very nice and friendly atmosphere. The food is delicious and fresh. I recommend it to everyone who like Turkish or Mediterranean food. The only downside is the prices but overall it's worth it to dine there

Loved the food. The decor appears authentic from the region as well. Hummus was great as well as the meat dish.

Inviting and friendly service was very attentive. Waitstaff was able to explain the variety of dishes for first timers of Turkish cuisine. The breads were scrumptious hot and fresh. The dishes were delicious and quite flavorful. Please stop in and experience the wonderful Turkish cuisine. Enjoy

There's a review a few months back that mentions a group of 4 getting hit with some sort of "service fee". Well, it's been about a year for us, but we had a similar experience when as a party of 5 we got hit with a tip that was 20% of the pre-tax total. There is no note on the... More
