Istanblu was purchased by a new owner, and they would not honor the Groupon. (Groupon resolved this issue, because Groupon Customer Support is awesome!) As tasty as the food was, the service was slow and forgetful, and I probably would not revisit the establishment.

Prices are a little high which would make me think twice about going back. Food was delicious.

Won't go back. The building is always ridiculously hot. It was about 85-90 degrees no joke. I was sweating. I also got screwed over by my waitress. My girlfriend and I had a groupon and the woman suggested we get the big cold platter and the big hot platter. She said she would only charge is the groupon price when we ordered. Then when the bill came it was like twice the amount we were originally spending. We told the waitress it wasn't correct because of her miss communication and she argued with us. Never going back.

Plates dirty, uncomfortable seating, high prices for very low quality food. Salad was disgusting, lamb was not fresh and not prepared recently. Cheese rolls missing cheese. Bulgar had no taste. We are middle eastern and are familiar with this type of food. Will not recommend!

From Our Editors

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.
