Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The lamb dinners for my wife and me were exceptionally delicious served by very friendly and helpful waiting staff. Not only were the entrees delicious, the multiple samples of appitizers were do good we finished all 6 varieties accompanied by the largest peta bread. We thought that this combination would leave us so full that we night not be able to enjoy our entrees Nevertheless, the Turkish lamb dinners were so delicious that we finished everything on the plates.. Then to our surprise, baklava, fruit, and Turkish teas were served complements of the restaurant. All these delicious cuisine served with prompt, friendly and attentive service. If you want snooty dining, then Buhara is not you but if you want honestly delicious Turkish cuisine served with care and attention, Buhara is for you. Did I mention that the cost of the dinner was very reasonable, not expensive at Buhara again when an opportunity arises again.

I loved the good. Great kebabs, the staff & service was excellent! A good place to eat in Sultanahmet. Bedri who served me was extremely hospitable & gave me complimentary baclava, which made me smile 😊

During a time when many restaurants were closed or take out only, Buhara made me feel welcome from the moment I entered to the end of the meal. There’s a lot of places where you can grab to go, but it’s a whole different experience sitting down and taking in the ambiance and receiving the food fresh from the kitchen. Presentation is great and timing of the service is perfect for a relaxing evening out. I look forward to bringing my partner next time. Highly recommend!

We received a recommendation from our hotel to visit this restaurant. We were tired and it was between 9:30 and 10 pm. My husband and I went and were seated immediately as there were only two others in the restaurant at this time. We were going to share our food since it was late and ordered the mixed appetizer, garlic kebab, and shepherd salad. We were immediately offered hot bread and small cheese plate and water. When we ended our meal they brought us complimentary Turkish chai and baklava. The staff was excellent- so friendly and polite, especially Muhammet. We will try to go back before we leave inshallah.

This restaurant, and staff, are extraordinary. I have planned visiting since Nov/2020 and unfortunately the place was closed at the time due to the pandemic. I’m now more than happy to write this review, this place is a must-visit in Istanbul. Not only I fell in love with every single dish, but also the atmosphere, the staff (cheers Burak) and the location are just perfect. We ordered the mixed grills, fried calamari and the clay pot (veg+meat+chicken) and all of which just surpassed my expectations and were extremely delicious. I’d recommend going for the Turkish grills here for sure. Burak has been courteous and generous and provided us with a plate of Turkish Aubergine meze, it was delicious especially with a fresh piece of the house-special pita bread free of charge along side tea and baklava as dessert. The bill at the end was a bit above the Turkey restaurants standard/average but it was well worth it for sure. This was well worth the wait and worthy of the current ratings.

Excellent service and nice location. Appetisers included a free giant loan of traditional bread, some cheese, hummus and stewed vegetables. Food that we ordered was served in large portions and was pleasing to the eyes and tongue. After main dishes we were given free baklava and traditional Turkish tea. So, this place is highly recommended to visit!

The hotel recommended this restaurant and it was good. The food was delicious and the portions are big. The free bread (with cheese and butter) and the free baklava at the end of the meal were lovely touches to a nice meal.

The food is very good. We came late at night and our hotel concierge brought us to this restaurant. The server, Seamus, has been very accommodating and informed us of all the choices. The Turkish kebab is so succulent, I will definitely come back to eat more. The place feels so friendly and the atmosphere is conducive for a relaxing dinner with friends and family. The complimentary baklava and tea at the end makes our visit more memorable.

The food was so fresh and delicious. Even their house wine had a good flavor. The employees are very helpful and speak English very well, helping us understand what each dish was. We also received free desert and teas. Very hospitable and the atmosphere reminds me of a Chicago mob Era place. Very satisfying and will definitely come back next time we are in Istanbul!!

We came across this restaurant while on our walk around Sultanahmet and we were really warmly welcome! We ordered some mezze for starter and a nice Ottoman kebap mix. The meats were really tender and well made, the bread fresh and warm and I want to say that the hosts were really kind to us. Thank you so much for the experience!

Set in the heart of Sultanahmet, this traditional and spontaneous Turkish restaurant will capture you with the taste of its plates. Do not miss the ottoman kebab! Limited but worthy choice of wine (also Turkish wines). Very good quality/price

I used to love the people who like their job and communicating with people specially when they are running a restaurant business in the most lovely place in Mediterranean. There super-enegetic guy named Burak, "the white version of Barak Ubama" he said himself :D In one word, I've not just had a lunch here but making a good memory. Thank you Burak :) Stay always up like today man Will cross by anytime I cross by Istanbul

Delicious food, cozy place. Make sure you order the aubergine salad with tomatoes and the Adana kebab. Food is fresh and delicious. The owner is very hospitable and also offered tea and baklava on the house. Would definitely go back again.

I went here on recommendation of our hotel and was very pleased with the food and the service. I had grape leaves with flat bread and egg plant as a starter, then I ate a meal that the waiter recommended with a variety of traditional foods and meats. It was enough food for two people, so I took leftovers back to the hotel. I did end the meal with perfect baklava and hot tea. It was a perfect end to a great day. The restaurant is in walking distance to the Grand Bazaar. The service was also just as good as the food was.
