Istanbul Restaurant Portsmouth on Osborne Road is the home of authentic Turkish cuisine in Southsea. Serving up sumptuous dishes that are all cooked using traditional methods on the open grill, this is a dining experience you won’t be forgetting any time soon. As always, it’s fun to order a variety of different dishes to share with your fellow diners. We absolutely love the minced feta cheese mixed with mint, parsley, peppers and pasta sauce and the soslu patlican with pan fried circles of aubergine, green peppers, onions and tomato sauce topped with garlic yoghurt. But that’s just the beginning, so believe us when we say that everything on the menu is downright delicious, and that you should reserve a table as soon as possible.
What an absolutely fabulous meal. Never been here before but we were really very impressed. Everyone's dishes were beautifully spiced and cooked to perfection. Service was as you would wish for, there but not hassling polite and efficient. Definitely a place to revisit.
Good food, excellent service. Would recommend others to go there. The place itself is warm and cosy (early September). We went on a Sunday evening at 6pm, quiet, but more people came in as we were sat down.
The food was amazing and the staff really lovely and helpfull. Family friendly restaurant. Would highly recommend, but please do book a table expecially during peak hours and/or if larger party.
