We've eaten at Turkish Cafe many times both for lunch and dinner and cannot wait to go there again... Despite an hour drive from my home.
We had a blast here. The DJ was great! Service was slow due to the place being packed. The only thing a did not like was the charge for the entertainment. This was not told up front when booking a table. There is a sign on the door about a $6 entertaiment fee per person.....
We have been here twice now and have enjoyed the ambience and food, but the service is not good. They do not seem to have the wait staff needed to handle the number of tables they have. We still enjoy it and just know it will be a long dinner. Also, at our last visit, they could not find our reservation. The owner walked up and figured we didn't have a reservation and told us we need to make a reservation 4-5 days ahead. We told him that we DID make a reservation online and he said, well that's why. I don't know what that meant, but probably best to call and confirm your reservation if done online.
I experienced the worst service of my life. We waited for about and hour and a half for our order to be taken, and another hour for the food to come. The waiter ignored us several times, we had to personally go and get him more than once.
The atmosphere and food are great. But the service needs improvement. It took over 90 minutes to get the food that my group ordered. Some friends ordered appetizers 30-40 minutes after we ordered and they receive their food faster. Very frustrating!
The first time I went they did not have beef, this time they did not have the Turkish sausage. However the mixed grill is outstanding. The shocker came when I was charged $1.5 extra for a Scotch on the rocks. I was told that their on the rocks is 1.5 oz v 1, and apparently this is an industry standard. You know what, in 25+ years of drinking scotch on the rocks across the globe, I have yet to be charged anything extra for having my drinks on the rocks. And could I measure the shot after its been poured over ice? I didn't buy the story but was too tired to argue for $1.5. I believe that when I do want to eat their their mixed grill again, I'll do a to-go
Enjoyed the culture and atmosphere
