Before we sat down for lunch at Bosphrous, an allegedly Turkish restaurant, I went in and met the hostess to ask: how many of the cooks are Turkish? She said that of the 6 in the kitchen only one was not from Turkiye. Super sign so we sat down at a table outside. The menu is rich in Turkish food offerings with excellent descriptions.
We opted for the lunch specials which included a salad, a main dish and dessert (baklava). I chose the chicken Adana, a spicy dish, and my wife, doner kebab. This was repeated by our friends visiting from Indiana. We declined the extra cost puffed bread and spread offer from the waitress. The next table had a plate of the puffed bread and it was huge. We thought that if we had ordered it along with a salad lunch would be done.
Our dishes were extremely tasty and generously served accompanied by two bottles of Efes beer from Turkiye. I devoured my chicken Adana even though it was not as spicy as it should be but my wife could not finish her doner dish. No worries as we took home the rest. Our friends had the same experience.
Bottom line: The venue is on Park street with additional tables on the sidewalk. The wait staff is professional and friendly especially the chief waiter who is Turkish. The food is excellent and authentic and the portions are generous. We would go there again, for sure.
