Description: We are the first and most authentic Turkish restaurant in Houston. Our charming little restaurant at the heart of rice Village has been part of the community for over 15 years. All these years we have stayed true to our belief that a good food must be made from the heart with passion. Every day starting at dawn our kitchen starts to prepare every single item on the menu from scratch with authentic spices and ingredients, whether it's our famous brick oven bread or our award winning rice puddings. The key to our success has always been our commitment to integrity of our recipes to maintain our constant high quality standards.

Istanbul Grill is great, but Pasha is just down the street if you're looking for a little nicer atmosphere.

“Delicious and just right (but boy, thery are stingy with their bread)”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

great food (including airan - the yougurt drink).
they don't put too much salt in it, which is a plus. Parking is limited but you can double park and staff will move the car for you.
..did I mention that they don't want to see their excellent bread wasted?..

Love the food but the waiters are a little moody. Most are nice though.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

My family and I are enormous fans and very frequent diners. I have twice been there to lunch and dinner on the same day. The food is wonderful and the service is great. The ambience is delightful -- very evocative of being in Turkey. And there is a garden patio in the front. Josephine

“Worth the double-park”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Small, speedy service. Good food. The rice pudding was almost creme brûlée-like. The food entrees and appetizers aren't going to blow you away- but everything was good.
