Istanbul Grill Restaurant Review

: One of the oldest authentic Turkish eateries in the city, Istanbul Grill in Rice Village serves up good food in an unpretentious setting. Check out the Turkish pizzas like the pastrami pie with mozzarella and cured beef. Fans of Middle Eastern food will find familiar staples like hummus, grape leaves, fine treatments of eggplant and well-executed kebabs. And don’t pass up the desserts. We recommend the buttery baklava and the kadayif, shredded wheat stuffed with walnuts. Complement your choice with the strong, rich Turkish coffee or try one of the bottled beers (we like the Turkish Efes) or a bottle of wine.
