Delicious food, good service, nice decor. Hidden gem in Cary -newly renovated. Authentic Turkish food. Started off with the fresh pita bread and flavored oil. Yum! Had a mixed plate of meats - the Adana was my favorite but they were all good. Waiter was gracious. Will definitely go back.

Easily the best middle eastern food in Wake County. Each of the Shish Kabobs are very good as are the grape leaves.

We have been to Bosphorus twice and both time the food was excellent and the selection above average. The small app and included hot tea were very nice touches. The first time we went, the reservation system was chaotic and we had to wait over twenty minutes after our time. The second visit, we arrived earlier and the system seemed... More

The service was great, very attentive staff, and the food was wonderful. The food was prepared fresh and was very inexpensive. Four of us ate for less than $80 (including tip) and we had two appetizers! We will certainly return the next time we are in the area.

Best Turkish food in the area. Five of us for dinner on a Friday night. My wife & I eat there often but our guests have only been a few times. We are recognized as soon as we go in and are seated immediately. Food here is always great. My problem is I tend to order the same thing all... More

The food here is always so fresh and a small quaint atmosphere. I really like that the staff is very welcoming and we can bring in our own beer or wine since they don't serve alcohol. They don't charge a cork fee and happy if you bring your own.

This was the perfect afternoon lunch spot for my mother-in-law, my daughter (14 months), and myself. We were welcomed and greeted with smiles. My mother-in-law eats at this place often and they know her here. We ordered appetizers - falafel and hummus - and my daughter loved it! The gyro sandwiches were also fantastic. I loved the Turkish tea -... More

My wife's parents came from Turkey so she was able to eat all the goodies, her Grandma used to make. The waiters spot any person with a trace of Turkish or Mediterranean blood when you walk in. We started with the Appetizers inc Hummus, a yogurt dish & dishes I can't name except they were wrapped in a flaky light... More
