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.

Lined with bright red leather banquettes, and decorated with glittering Turkish lamps, Café Istanbul restaurant in Manchester reflects the vibrancy of its bustling surroundings. Tropical plants scattered across the dining area reinforce its exotic theme, along with the bold, Turkish inspired prints.

    Very welcoming. Beer a bit overpriced. Istanbul lamb disappointing as just lamb burgers with plain rice.

    Visited on Saturday night. Once again the food and service was fantastic. The staff are attentive and pleasant and the food is perfectly cooked.
    Three of us had Istanbul chicken (very generous potion) and one of us had the slow cooked lamb which was delicious. We shared our starters,
    they were lovely. Looking forward to our next visit.

    THE RESTAURANT WAS COLD AT A BUSY TIME ON SATURDAY NIGHT. THE SERVICE WAS GOOD AND THE FOOD JUST OK. THE DECOR IS THAT OF A POSH CAFE AND NOT OF A FINE RESTAURANT. OVERALL DISAPPOINTING.

    The staff were really attentive and accommodated our every need. They really looked after us. We had houmous and taramasalata to start - delicious! Then my dad had what were some of the biggest king prawns I have ever seen and he said they were delicious. My dad’s wife has paprika Lamb which I tasted and it was delicious. I had the apricot lamb but I think I preferred the paprika Lamb. The puddings were also delicious - I had baklava - yummy if you can eat nuts!
