I had lunch here on a workday. Park on the street (facing Brambleton), if you arrive before noon there is plenty of space. The parking lot in back was full. I had 2 sides: the rice and the lamb kabab. EXCELLENT! I will be back...More

Had the Kofte platter. Delish spiced meat patties char grilled with pita and I chose the salad. Satisfying lunch for under 11 bucks.

Don't be put off by the building! It's not much to look at, but they have it where it counts! Amazing food! We've tried gyros and kebabs and love it all! The Turkish Delight and Baklava are incredible!

Finding a good place for good kofte and kebabs is tough. Istanbul is the best in the area and possibly the eastern shore. Service is prompt and food is amazing. Prices are good too.

We ate lunch here on a two day stay. By far the best gyro I have had since leaving Europe. They were real gyros with beef and lamb cooked on a spit and shaved off. Small but worth the trip in for a excellent gyro.

Before a show at Push Comedy, our friends suggested this restaurant. Easy walk from NEON district (Norfolk's new ARTS district) to this stand alone humble building next to the Greyhound Bus Station. That being said, this will be our go-to before events at Chrysler Hall...More

The food is really good with decent prices. The thing that I didn't like about this place was the cashier tried to over charge me, then when I confronted him about it he blamed it on being tired and saying they've been busy all day....More
