Who would have thought that in the middle of Hewlett, right on Broadway around the banking area you can find one of the best Middle Eastern food spots in Long Island. Place is clean and spacious, with nice quiet ambiance, virtually deserted for Sunday lunch, food is of excellent quality and hosts were warm and most accommodating. We were a family of 6 and we were impressed with variety and quality of each meal, which we all manage to sample. Mussaka was good and so was Beyt Kebab. Desserts were also excellent, especially the local specialty custard. Service was excellent. Full meal including appetizers, Turkish coffee and main meal and desert for 6 was under $200. There is ample parking on Sunday on Broadway and it is free. Saturday night they advertise belly dancing. We highly recommended for family, couples or business.

Each time I have been to this Mediterranean restaurant, it has been enjoyable. The owner makes it a point to greet all the customers and the servers are very attentive. There is much to choose from on the menu and the portions are generous. Particularly good is the Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Shepard Salad, Lamb Chops, Shrimp Kebab, Fish and the Pita Bread with Dipping Sauces. Their desserts are also good. Adding to my last experience, a belly dancer circulated the crowd!

I had the opportunity to have lunch at Istanbul on the rare occasion that I happened to be in Hewlett. The restaurant is clean and it has linen tablecloths and napkins, something I happen to like. The service was wonderful. Our waiter was as attentive as they come. Suggested a wonderful wine and continuously checked on our needs. The menu was extensive with Luncheon Specials and the food was amazing . Lamb that melted in your mouth,For me the biggest treat was authentic Turkish coffee which you cannot find everywhere and a baklava to die for with chocolate drizzle over it. The menu was priced right and I was told there was even belly dancing on certain nights.
Just loved it

We decided to stop by last night for the first time and were pleasantly surprised! We were warmly greeted and quickly seated. The waite staff is fairly new, and tried very hard to make sure we were pleased in every way. The Turkish salad was fresh as could be and the eggplant in tomato sauce quite yummy. The grilled shrimp (10 pieces) was very tasty as was the lamb shish ka bob. Wine by the glass very fairly priced. Experiecing whole wheat pita was a first. It would help if they marked their menu with some Gluten Free items. Other than the fact our bill was mixed up with another patron, we really enjoyed our meal and will most definitely return here.
