The owner chef Youksel, is very particular in making virtually everything from scratch. The result is delicious. The appetizers are great, don't miss the stuffed apricots and the hummus. Lamb is a specialty, prepared several ways. Surprisingly for a Turkish restaurant the steak tenderloin is one of the better steaks in Edmonton. Service is great; the wine list pretty good.... More

A group of 6 looking for a fun evening of wining and dining...and we certainly accomplished our goal! When we first walked in to this busy restaurant, you were greeted by the owner and staff who were smiling and gracious and happy to get your evening started. Traditional Turkish cooking, appetizers like stuffed apricots, and fresh hummus with home cooked... More

We had the Sultan's sampler, gives you a taste of the menu, potions were huge and all very delicious. They take reservations which is very convenient as well. Highly recommend this restaurant, we will be back!

After visiting this exquisite restaurant lastnight for the first time with my husband, I returned this evening to share the experience with a good friend. We were treated to the same exceptional service and outstanding meal as I had received the previous evening. My friend and I chose to share the "sultan's sofrasi" which is supposed to be a dinner...

This is our new benchmark for food. Everything was absolutely to die for. The portions are so large that I couldn't eat it all. That is a first. We talked with Yuksel, the chef, after eating and got his life story. Very interesting man and very nice. Service is top notch and prices are reasonable. This is a must visit... More

Visited for drinks and appetizers. The food was absolutely delicious from the exotic dips to the smoked duck. Good food takes time so if you're rushing before a game this is not the ideal. Make time to relax before or after and you will have made a good decision. A great place for a special evening of good dining in... More

Come for the flavours, period. There's nothing overly fancy about this place. They just prepare great food, cook it perfectly, and consistently delivery top-notch flavours. I recommend the lamb loin with grilled tiger prawns. Also be sure to try the pita bread appetizer with your choice of dips (the feta dip is my favourite, but they're all great). If there's... More

We visited as a group of 3 friends on an Oilers Saturday game night, so that might explain why service was slow and the food only average. We shared a Sultan's feast, and found it was enough food for 3 of us. The beer was disappointing, the meat slightly overcooked and nothing outstanding in the meal. The best items were... More

I'd heard about this restaurant from two colleagues and decided that it would be the place to go for my birthday dinner. I was not disappointed! I had the chicken kabobs, which were so moist and beautifully seasoned. My mixed green salad had been lightly dressed with a tasty and slightly sweet vinaigrette. The vegetables and rice were lovely too.... More
