This was my second time at Alihan's, which says a lot considering I rarely frequent a place more than once, there are way too many good places to try! Both times were remarkable! From the appetizers to desserts every bite makes you want more! This time my friend and I stopped before a show at the Byham and we were... More

I have been to Alihan several times for lunch and once for dinner - it is one of my go to spots in the city. The food is consistently very good, the staff is very helpful and prompt, the atmosphere is very comfortable.

Comfortable and quiet seating; good service; good food. We had the Lamb Kebob, one of us with rice the other with Wheat Burber. Had never tried the burber but enjoyed it.

My wife and I have been walking by this place on the way to theater at the Byham for several years and always wondered what it was like. This time we remember to go! We made a reservation via their website a few days before (definitely recommended--the place was packed) and got a confirmation email from the owners. We were... More

We enjoyed our dinner and probably would go back however the whole experience was just ok. Our waiter was not attentive and actually kind of rude when we asked if they had any specials. Our food was delicious very flavorful especially the appetizers we ordered. The place is a very nice start to a evening if you are going to... More

We were downtown for First Night and looked for a restaurant for dinner between performances. Alihan's is close to the Benedum and amazingly we got in without a reservation. The food was quite good. I had the Greek salad with chicken and my wife had a salad with lamb (shish, not ground). Both were excellent. This will be one of... More

Recent Pittsburgh flyer said they had great Lintel soup, so we went for lunch. Also had the lamb luncheon gyro special. Great food and inexpensive.

I have walked by this place many times and never stopped in for a bite. Not any more. This was one of the best Mediterranean restaurants I have never been to. The hummus was very creamy and delicious. I ordered the lamb shish kabob and it was mouth-watering! Lamb can sometimes be course and dry, but this was cooked to... More

Description
Alihan's Mediterranean Cuisine is a family owned restaurant. Alihan is not only the owner, he is the head chef as well. Originated from the city of Rize, grown in Istanbul in their family restaurant, Alihan keeps an eye on authenticity and traditional taste of family recipes used in our restaurant. Overlooking every detail, paying attention to every flavor and every customer's needs, Alihan always puts love in everything he does. Alihan's Cuisine brings to Pittsburgh's downtown taste of Turkey wrapped in hospitality and family environment. Carefully selected dishes of our restaurant's menu are all homemade, made of fresh hand-picked ingredients, and made up to order. We don't use any processed foods or preservatives while preparing our meals. All vegetables and meat are of the highest quality, and of course our meat and chicken are halal, fish always fresh, spices imported from far Turkey. We like to keep our food healthy in order to keep fresh, authentic Mediterranean style. We are BYOB, please feel free to bring alcohol of your choice to enjoy with our meals.
