One of my favorite cuisines comes from the Middle East and Turkey. The spices are incredible and their use is almost magical. This is what I expected when I walked in to Istanbul Mediterranean Restaurant. And they came extremely close to perfection - I started off with the Sigara Boregi (Cigar Pastry) which had the great taste I was expecting... More

We love Istambul. Food is always fresh and the service very good. I'm a huge fan of the Mediterranean Salad with donor. The falafel is also really good. Actually, we've not had anything we didn't love.

This is my favorite place for Greek food. It is a small place with great service and food. The gyros, hummus, and pizzas are amazing. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a delicious meal for a decent price.

This is a wonderful restaurant in a really nice upscale location. Given the location, the prices are extremely reasonable. We had Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, two bowls of Tomato Soup, a large Greek Salad and an Adana Kabob which comes with rice or fries, salad and. Some extras all under $30. The food is prepared well and so tasty.

Complete disclosure, I haven't reviewed this place because I don't want it to become crowded. It is really small, family owned and operated. There are maybe six booths and four tables inside. The salad is consistently good. I always get the lentil soup during the colder season. Soup and said is a great combo and you can add meat to... More

We tried this placed when we passed in little rock. We ordered the beef diner and a beef kebab. I can't distinguish if those dishes were authentic Turkish food but we loved and enjoyed the food. We also ordered the pistachio baklava with the Turkish coffee.

I drove for 3.5 hours to get to Little Rock for a doctor appointment, then had to turn around and drive back. The best part of that grueling day was finding Istanbul. I was starving when I arrived at about 3pm. I usually hate going to a restaurant at off-peak hours, but this was totally the exception. The service was... More

My husband was looking for something different so was disappointed when the food tasted like any other Greek restaurant we had been to. The food was very good, but not what we expected.

Beef doner (pronounced Don-hair) is wonderful, melt in your mouth buttery, crispy edged, thinly sliced 1 inch wide x 6 or 7 inch long ribbons of meat. It holds up in the refrigerator for reheating the next day...and that's good because the beef doner plate is huge! And comes with a wonderful crisp salad, herbed rice, cacik (like tatziki) and...
