Me and the wife went on a random date night here a few weeks ago. The place was empty as it was a Monday night. But all the same the food came out fresh and hot. The portions were of a good size and the food was filling, I had the Sucuk – Special home-made spicy sausage and the Chicken... More

We have been here a couple of times before and not much has changed. Food is ok but not good enough to make me want to go back again. Nice friendly service. Prices reasonable for what you get.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and friendly and the two members of staff that looked after us whilst we had lunch were really nice. Six of us have lunch once a month at various restaurants in and around Worthing and thought we would give the Istanbul a try - are we pleased we did! They have a set... More

We ate lunch here and were made to fee very welcome. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We all chose different main courses and enjoyed them equally. The chef brought the plates to the restaurant and we were then served by the waitress. It was our first experience of Turkish food and we found it... More

Very poor lighting in the evening so you can barely see what you are eating! Was served burnt pitta & when sent it back had the replacement practically thrown at me by the waiter. The chicken shish was not chunks of chicken as described neither was it what most restaurants serve as a shish. It was flattened chicken breast. Not... More

This was a birthday meal. 4 of us had the Meze at £12.50 per head. The food was less than average and not enough of it to fill a side plate each. All you got for the money was some bits of bread, some bland humus dips (that you can get from Tescos) a few bits of Halloumi cheese, and... More

We visited this restaurant again for lunch, as we usually do when visiting Worthing. In our opinion it is the best place to eat in Worthing. It is consistently excellent quality (which is very rare! On many second visits to restaurants we have been really disappointed & then you begruge paying the bill!) & value & the staff are friendly.... More
