Went here for my birthday. Having been asked to pre-order as a big party of 12 the table was booked for 8.30. Didn't get a drink order for 20 mins and finally got starters at 9.30. Main course didn't arrive until 10.30 and after when requesting the bill waited 10 minutes and had to ask again as we wanted to move on. Got no apologies so didn't leave a tip. E-mailed them to state my disappointment and they haven't responded nearly two weeks later. Won't go again choose Efes much better service!

Worthing on a Sunday night with World Cup final on is not the best place to find a restaurant open - came across the Istanbul - and what a pleasure! Super service from our waitress - great range of food and drinks on the menu. I chose moussaka which came sizzling in the dish with garlic bread and side salad! Perfect in every way - delicious doesn't come close....yummilicious!!! Husband's steak was apparently likewise! The coffee to follow was superb - REAL coffee not just frothy coffee flavoured machine muck you get in most places! I thoroughly recommend this restaurant - only thing missing was some Turkish music! Sitting outside on a warm summer's night facing Worthing seafront ....you could almost believe you were in Turkey!!!!

Where to eat on a wet bank holiday Monday in Worthing? Look no further than Istanbul. Great menu, authentic decor, nice wine list. We opted for a mixture of starters to get a wide choice. Highly recommend the spinach and yoghurt dish and make sure you try the baklava.

We have just enjoyed an excellent lunch in this gem of a restaurant. We tried falafel for the first time and were not disappointed. Excellent value with pleasing presentation ande very amiable staff adding to the pleasure of the occasion. Be warned - we will be back;-)
