I was shopping at Easton and wanted to get some lunch. I looked at the choices and immediately made my way to the Cafe Istanbul. Mediterranean cuisine is my favorite and I couldn't wait to give this place a try. I was promptly seated and my drink order taken. My water was brought and with it came a plate of... More

We decided to try something new while at Easton. We were pleasantly surprised with Café Istanbul. The bread was amazing, so were the entrees. The service was impeccable, the server suggested some amazing items. We are so glad we went there and will be back.

Excellent and authentic Turkish cuisine. Absolutely the best outside of Istanbul. The appetizer platter is an excellent choice and don't miss the donar or Adana kebabs. These are by far the best items on the menu. Save room for desert though, and plan on spending some time here. A meal here is an adventure and well worth taking the time... More

Fascinating Turkish spices and flavors await at Cafe Istanbul. Do order appetizers, as that is the Turkish way. They were also the best part of our lunch. While the lamb kebabs and the falafel were well seasoned, both were overcooked, causing them to be dry. Our server was excellent, however we did have a long wait for food, considering it... More
