A delicious meal served by lovely staff. We arrived earlier than booked and they were more than accommodating taking us straight to a table. Cannot say more than that.
The restaurant has a varied menu. Food is nicely served and delicious in taste. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Unusually, the restaurant was quite empty when we visited so the atmosphere was slightly dull compared to its normal vibrant self. We have been eating at Cafe Istanbul for years and will return.
Very friendly service and excellent food, in generous portions. The staff were always attentive, the décor is quite exotic without looking like a tacky film set. I would thoroughly recommend a visit, whether you love Turkish food, or you just want to sample it for the first time.
Great food great service that's why this place is one of my favourite places in Manchester. The meat platter is exceptional and huge so make sure you're hungry if you order it!
Tonight there was no food available from the grill due to "fire regulations" which left a very limited menu and the main course took more than 45 minutes after the starter to arrive - disappointed tonight
First visit to Cafe Istanbul and it may be the last. Arrived at the allotted time but table wasn`t ready. Took an hour for starters to arrive during which time no effort was made by staff to see if we wanted another drink or to keep us informed about the reason for the delay. After two hours we still hadn`t had main courses. Continued lack of communication from staff didn`t help matters. Eventually we just paid for the food and drinks we`d had and then left. They did deduct the cost of one round of drinks from the bill but our Saturday night meal out with friends ended up something of a washout.
Warm and inviting restaurant. Staff friendly and attentive but not overbearing . Good choice on menu and all of us rated food as excellent. Although busy we did not feel rushed after we had eaten. No hesitation to book again
Nice quiet pleasant atmosphere,the staff was lovely and food was delicious. Would recommend to all of my friends. All in all a great experience,can't wait to go back
Excellent restaurant with great food and pleasant service. A contemporary atmosphere rather than one that you might expect for a Turkish restaurant which we like.
All the staff are very professional and friendly. The food was excellent. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and we shall certainly be going there again.
