“Lunch at Bosporus”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The food is generally very good. The staff seems to change quite frequently. Years ago it was run by two very friendly brothers. The last few times we've eaten here the waiter never says hello or smiles, never. We come here because the Shepard salad and humus are awesome. My husband loves the meatballs. The music is great. The atmosphere could be a little better. It's kind of uncomfortable when the staff doesn't speak to you unless they are taking your order.

“It's kind of dumpy, but the food is amazing.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

You are not coming for the decor. It's clean, and that's what's important. The service is hit or miss, but never bad. The food is always great, and its a great value. I live about 20 minutes away, so I only come a few times a year. Wish I lived closer!!

“Great place for lunch...”
Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

Order the Shepherd Salad with chicken to eat in or take out and you can't loose. The vegetables are fresh and the preparation is special. With warm pitas and a drink you get a great lunch!

“Best secret in town”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

If you love Turkish food, look no further. My family and I have been going to this place for over a decade and it never disappoints. The service is top notch and if you go a few times, the waiters remember you. My recommendations are the lamb shish kabobs with pita bread, the shepherd salad and the grilled eggplant. Everything is made to order so if you feel like you've been waiting a bit for your food, don't get impatient, it's fresh! It's BYOB but there's a liquor store on the same street if you forget your wine and it is a tiny place but that just makes it more intimate. Make a reservation, especially on the weekends, because more and more people have discovered it so you might be waiting for a seat a long time. Nothing beats this place, trust me.
