Everything was delicious! Best Iskender I've had in the US! Try the Borek, the eggplant purée, and the kunefe.

We used to eat at this restaurant when it was at the Newport Levee and we enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We were very disappointed when they moved from this location. Not sure when they opened there on Vine St., but it is a different ambiance than the Newport location. The food and menu seemed the same and we still enjoyed the experience. The wait staff was very attentive, though there were hardly any other patrons when we got there at 6:00 on a weeknight. I hope they do well here and maybe it gets busier on weekends, or later in the day. It is definitely a plus having this style of Mediterranean cuisine in the area.

The zucchini patties are delicious, and so are the cabbage Rolls. Good falafel balls too

From Our Editors

The aromas of fresh-baked pita in clay ovens, char-grilled kebabs, and homemade baklava mingle and waft through Istanbul Cafe's bright turquoise dining room replete with Turkish wall hangings. To ensure authentic Mediterranean and Turkish flavors, the chefs do as much food preparation in house as possible, from spearing fresh kebabs daily to hand making desserts from scratch to carving gyros meat right off a spinning gyroscope. The baked eggplant comes stuffed with lamb, tomatoes, peppers, and and herbs served with sauteed seasonal vegetables and basmati rice. Seated around tables, patrons may sip steaming mugs of turkish coffee and tea or uncork their own bottles of wine toted from home.
