Nice Turkish decorations and tasty food from that area. Consisted quality but a bit pricey.

Restaurant Istanbul Oriental is definitely something different in Oulu. It has prime location in the middle of city center on the walking street.

The décor is really stylish, and fits really well in their Istanbul style. Their service is friendly and you feel really comfortable.

The menu is perfect, there are many delicious choices. The lamb is especially good.

This is really popular restaurant so reservation on Saturdays is definitely recommended. Not specially cheap, but definitely worth it.
