Ambience and authentic...Amazing

Soft music, great service, flavorful hot meals that dances on the palette indicative of Turkish cuisine. perfect for date night or friends enjoying the evening. Being from Seattle, this place scored high on my taste buds.

Very bad food

My first time there. I heard good things about it. The food was very bad. We could not finish the plates. Add insult to injury, very expensive. Never again.

Cafe Istanbul, what happened to you? You used to be so great, but since the change in management, you've gone downhill fast. My recent visit left a lot to be desired: food was bland and cold; renovations are tacky and generic; and the general manager is totally rude. A real disappointment.

My worst Restaurant experience ever!!!

I am serious, this place has the worst Turkish food ever. Period. The lentil soup was tasteless, I had to add a ton of lemon juice and pepper to it in order to bring it to an edible state. The pide was stale. The hummus actually had dried out pieces on top and tasted awful. I would have sent everything back but I had ordered in and didn't feel like making a big deal about it. I tossed all the food I had ordered and went out to get burgers.

THE WORT MEDITERRANEAN RESTURANT IN DALLAS

First off, I am Turkish and love Turkish food. I tried ordering the lamb, and they were out. So then, I tried to order the Swordfish, they were out.
The waiter apologized and suggested I order the Tavuk Sis Kebap (chicken kabob plate). I took a bite of chicken and gagged a little while I was swallowing, I looked at the piece left on my plate to see that it was still raw in the center, EW. I wasn't mad, but Obviously i was DISGUSTED with the chicken, so i asked if i could have something else. The manager said he would put the chicken back on the grill for me.... Seriously? Thank you so much for cooking my chicken! I had them put it back on the grill and put it in a to go box, still had to pay for it and had to eat some of my mom's meal for lunch AND I am probably going to get sick. HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT!!!! We did have a great server, who was extremely apologetic. I wish i could give 0 stars. The other food I ate was mediocre at best.

The Worst restaurant experience I have had so far

I was at the Dallas Location last friday for dinner . I wanted to experience the turkish food once more in Dallas after I had visited Turkey and had very good time there. But This restaurant is nothing to do with real and delicious turkish food. All appetizers brought are in small portions and they are either too cold or hot. There is no taste in the appetizers at all . The restaurant smells dirt and toilet , the waiter that served me had something gooey on his hand and my friend asked him what it was and the waiter said it was just an ''accident'' . I wonder what that accident might be. I ordered soup which had chunks of stale bread inside and I reordered it and the same soup was brought to me and this time it was colder and had more chunks . i asked him what the soup had like chunks and he grabbed a spoon and took the chunk out and said he did not know and he did not take it back or took it off the tab . We ordered Istanbul Doner that came with either eye lash or chest hair . We asked for the check and the check was 65 dollars for two appetizers and two main dishes which we did not even touch . in stead of not been brought a check we were charged 65 dollars plus tip for the worst service ever. I really wonder if all these positive feedbacks were posted by the same person or what. If you still want to go and shell out money on piece of nothing do it . I am relieved that i at least warned some people that have not gone there yet!

Amazing food at great prices

I was there this past Saturday and I really love this place. I had the Stuffed Chicken and it was absolutely delicious. I can also recommend the Turkish Flan for desert.

The staff was friendly and as an added bonus, we were treated to belly dancing by a real beauty.

Highly recommended.
