Came here as a group of 5 girls, service was exceptional and atmosphere was very loud but buzzing... Had more food than we could possibly eat but were provided with doggy bags for home! Will return!

As the oldest Turkish restaurant in Manchester, Café Istanbul holds an excellent reputation of serving the most flavoursome Turkish cuisine. Café Istanbul restaurant also couples a luxury champagne cocktail bar with authentic Turkish beers.

Conjuring rich Turkish flavours, the Café Istanbul menu includes a delectable slow baked apricot lamb, as well as a tender slow cooked paprika lamb. Other traditional favourites include the stuffed aubergine, with sautéed green pepper, onion and garlic, as well as a mixed chargrill with a succulent lamb cutlet, tasty spit roasted Istanbul lamb and chicken, and skewered lamb.

    All the starters were fabulous. The mains are basic but very tasty and the meat was the most tender I have had in a while. Nice atmosphere and cafe is a good description of the friendly feeling in the restaurant. .

    4 of us went to the restaurant. We were all impressed with our food.
    The lamb kebab was tender and the rice was perfectly cooked.
    The waitress was very attentive.

    Had a fab time with friends. The staff were really friendly and couldn't have done more for us. Even once we had finished and was sat with a few drinks enjoying the atmosphere, the staff were attentive and lovely. The food at Café Istanbul was great. Fab evening with good friend at a great venue!
