Feast from a menu of mezes, salads, and entrees, such as the grilled shrimp kebap ($9.95/ lunch, $16.75/dinner), guvec veggie sautee with green beans, potato, and zucchini ($12.95), or a peynir tabagi Mediterranean cheese plate with tomato and olive oil ($6.75). The dinner menu is offered seven days a week.


Amid the nightlife of Ybor City, Istanblu brings visitors platefuls of the colorful salads, savory kebaps, and fresh seafood that Turkish cuisine is known for. Turkey is home to a vast cultural exchange between Europe and Asia, which can be seen in a diverse spread of dishes, which range from cold yogurt sauces, spicy grilled lamb, and bulgur pilav, to creamy chickpea hummus and zesty salads of cucumber and feta. Chefs at Istanblu skillfully whip up delectable roast meats and mezzes, as well as ocean-fresh seafood dishes, such as whole, roasted dorado and seabass.

After dinner, diners can sip imported Turkish coffee as they nibble on sutlac rice pudding, or toast to the success of their fantasy shuffleboard league with cocktails from the full-service bar.


Fresh bread was warm and delicious, lentil soup was aromatic, kids had the chicken shish which they loved and the mixed grill was amazing!

The flavors were incredible. The atmosphere was amazing. It was romantic and trendy.
