★★★  Good food. IMO, the price is average for Turkish food (I have never found anything cheaper). Portions were fine for the price. Their "pizza" flat bread with minced meat and bottom of the pot pudding role was something unique and delicious.

★★★★★  I have been that place couple times. First of all I know the owner is well known muslim and they have halal menu. Second even though they do not sell alcohol, they let people to bring their drink which is not a big deal. It's very authentic place and good for family and quality is one of the best in this area. They have all kind of Turkish

★★★★★  This restaurant is marvelous. I'm going there since I discovered this place. Even though I am a picky person, I am satisfied with both service and the food.
First of all, this restaurant has an impressive ambiance. There are many traditional stuff on the wall. They have a special table to make Turkish coffee. They are mostly playing soothing music. These kind of music may be preferred after a tiring day.
Secondly, waiters and waitresses are warm blooded, courteous, and debonaire. I think, all of them are educated people.
The food is both scrumptious and fresh. The owner told me that they baked their desserts daily. The portions are quite large compared to the prices. Undoubtedly, the food is halal, because they showed me their certificate. I do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to my friends.

★★  I have been to this restaurant many times. Unfortunately I realized that people drink alcohol (I have seen wines and white Turkish drink called "Raki") in this restaurant. They may not sell it directly but they allow people to bring their alcoholic drinks, which disqualifies this restaurant as alcohol free. This is not an honest way of business ...

Other than that the prices are very expensive compared to the quality of the food and the service. Waiters/ waitresses are very rude. They don't have group discounts. Unfortunately in my opinion, they are trying to rip off people and abusing the trust of our people...

NR  Have been here a few times since it opened a few months ago. Service is inconsistent especially from management, they seem to more engaged on being on the internet or on their cell phone. Standard fare and ambiance, food is okay and the portions are okay, prices are decent. They give you plenty of bread to fill you up. Not terrible and not great, consider it a viable option in the variety of options available in that area. Coupons are available in the local coupon clipper type magazines.

★★★★★  I've been to Istanbul a few times now, once dining in and twice for take out. My experience with the food was positive each time, even with a group of 12 people including kids. The food is delicious and better than some of the turkish restaurants I've been to in Paterson. I recommend the Iskander kabob or the mixed grill. Looking forward to trying more on their menu. If you're taking a group, make a reservation, because it gets busy on the weekends. I also tried one of their desserts, which was an almond shaped pastry that tasted like harisa. Delicious, but very heavy. The dinner portions are large enough that you don't really have room for dessert!

  This person above obviously works or owns it, the place opened less then a month ago and theres no way they tried everything there.. I ordered a gyro, on their advertisement they show a picture of lamb on the upright spinning grill , there were only two other tables and it took 30 min for the food !!!! No way it takes that long to FRESHLY cut from the grill and put salad inside a pita. After playing with my iphone , First bite, The wrap was super tough, dry and tasteless . Meat was extra dry , and they gave Tatziki sauce in a tiny dipping cup filled half way. Ketchup was given in miniature plastic ketchup cup "to go" style with the lid on LoL How does a "Restaurant" bring your food out wrapped in aluminum foil ??? ON A PLATE LoL WoW youre kidding .... Service ..... yea..... the entire staff except the "COOK" sat at the back table talking..... 1/10
