My wife and I joined another couple for dinner at the Turkish Grille. It is not a fancy place, but the food was outstanding and the service prompt and courteous. We shared both the cold and hot appetizer sampler platters, a lot for 4 people, and my wife and I shared the lamb mixed grille. All the food was unique and very tasty. I had the Shephard (sic) Salad and found it to be fresh and very crisp. Don't overlook the fact that the restaurant is BYOB. I heartily recommend the Turkish Grille. We will be returning.

REALLY delicious food! The hot appetizer plate was my favorite part although the dumplings I had were very very hard to beat. My friends enjoyed the chicken kababs, lamb with tomato sauce dish & Turkish coffee served in beautiful little cups. Even the hot, grilled pita bread is worth mentioning- so good! Very nice staff. Attentive without hovering- just right. I can’t wait to return! Thank you!

The food here is divine. I’ve been to lunch a few times and the serving sizes are perfect. I get an app and entree and I’m able to enjoy all of both without feeling weighted down or overly full. The food is prepared skillfully. My favorite, the cigarette borek appetizer delicately balances the phyllo with creamy filling. Overall the food is delicious, service is great, prices are reasonable, decor is beautiful and the portions are satisfying. I would highly recommend

Took our daughter and her roommate for an early dinner here with my husband. The food was wonderful. We started with hummus with warm pita bread. Both were perfect and a great way to start the meal. Entrees were varied and many items looked interesting.. My husband and I split the Turkish Grille Mixed Grill (a meal for 2). so that we could sample many things. All were delicious. The college students each had a dumpling dish (I can't remember the name) that was delightful. We finished our meal with a heavenly baklava. My husband had Turkish coffee that was served in the most exquisite cup that he said was great. I want to return to sample some of the other items on the menu. Our server was friendly and efficient. The restaurant had a nice ambiance. The pictures on the walls and the decorations reminded us of our visit to Istanbul. Close to University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. The restaurant is tucked on a side street off of Baum Boulevard across from a CVS . Don't let that deter you. A wonderful meal. Reasonable prices.

The restaurant catered a dinner for 100 university students and faculty. The delivery was on time, the order was accurate, the food was delicious (everyone was pleased), and beautifully presented. The restaurant took the extra step of indicating ingredients in each dish. We will definitely order from Turkish Grille again. Thank you!

We had lunch here while in town visiting our son who is attending college in Pittsburgh. Truly excellent and my husband said it was the best lunch he has had in a long time. We ordered the small appetizer which is five samples of the different cold appetizers. Wonderful and it had carrots and cucumber in addition to wonderful pita bread with which to try them. My son ordered the chicken kabob and my husband and I two different lamb dishes. Each was delicious and a lot of food so that we had leftovers to take home. Thank you to Saleem for excellent service and food.

We had lunch today at Turkish Grille in Oakland. Our waiter was Selim. This is a very cute, little restaurant conveniently located near Pitt and CMU on Melwood Ave. We had the baba ghanoush for our appetizer. It was served with a basket of warm pita. This was very good baba ghanoush. The quality of the ingredients was obvious. For main course I had the chicken kebab and my husband had the chicken Adana kebab. They were served with salad, rice and shredded carrots. I have to tell you there is another Turkish restaurant I’ve been going to for a couple of years and I swear by their chicken kebabs. Turkish Grille does an outstanding job with this dish. The chicken was fork tender, juicy and very delicious. The Adana was equally as good. Selim was very nice and took very good care of us from start to finish. I can’t wait to go back to Turkish Grille!

You're in for a rare treat when you come to Turkish Grille, a family owned restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food is the best Turkish cooking I've ever had, in an ambiance that reminds me of being welcomed in a friend's dining room. My friends and I have been welcomed by Selim as if we are family. The quality of the every dish on the menu matches the gorgeous ambiance of this traditional restaurant. You will never be disappointed ... 5 stars Pittsburgh!

Our first time there. Wonderful food! My wife's lentil soup was so good, she almost had another bowl after her entree. The pita bread was warm, soft and delicious. Our lamb and chicken entrees were excellent. Even the little touch of salad on the plate was great; we could have had a whole plate of just that. Service was excellent and the restaurant was very cozy. We will be back!

We were in the mood for something different for our anniversary dinner. After reading the great reviews, we left downtown for a trip to the Turkish Grille. It did not disappoint. We shared a grilled platter for two, hummus, and Baba Ghanoush. The meat was seasoned well, and the lamb was tender. On a Friday night, we were one of three couples. The service is great, the food is plentiful and delicious, and the prices are fair. Consider a taxi or Uber as street parking can be a bit difficult to find.

I cannot believe this is the number 1 place on trip advisor. First off it is a small extremely unkempt place. Weeds growing all over the front. Trash and cigarette butts everywhere out front. Inside small and dated.2 ok but it’s about the food right ? Appetizers good . Main dishes ok - served with uninventive mounds of plain rice on the side. Rice pudding for dessert - best part of the meal.

We had hummus and pita, which was good, cold grape leaves served with fresh lemon, also tasty, and the Turkish mixed grille, which was delicious. It included various types of chicken and lamb with rice and salad. The service was friendly and professional.

Great restaurant with some of the freshest falafel, hummus and pita bread. I’ve NEVER tasted pita bread this soft and fresh and delicious. Also, they make my favorite dessert, baklava in house! Unfortunately, they don’t have a ton of vegan options. But the vegan options they do have are delicious. I really hope they introduce more vegan friendly options. This restaurant is TOTALLY worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is always fresh and delicious. I've been many times. I enjoy going with friends not only for the good middle eastern food, but the restaurant is quiet enough to enjoy a good conversation.

Fantastic food in this cute little restaurant. We had a big sampler platter with lamb chicken and vegetables. Also borek and a big plate of great hummus. Such great food was coming out of that kitchen that we also ordered dessert… a Turkish carmelized pudding and baklava. Really worth a trip in if you’re in town.
