The Bosphorus Istanbul Café shouldn't be missed and really can't be. Occupying a magenta and purple house with fishscale siding, the restaurant is an eye-catcher outside and in. Fronted by a patio that opens for outdoor dining mid-May and charmed up inside with ornately painted floors, vibrant-hued walls and travel posters of Turkey, the place is a cozy and colorful stop for Turkish cuisine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quaint atmosphere, good service and great food make this a great place to eat. Apr 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Calamari appetizer was Ok but not outstanding. The other Lamb dishes were outstanding. The bottle of Pinot Noir was delightful and a great value. I would have rated the food excellent with the exception of the Calamari. Apr 17, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing food! Great atmosphere -- one of my favorite restaurants in Indianapolis. The food reminds me of my trip to Istanbul because of its authenticity. Mar 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It can be a little slow, but they make everything for you fresh, My wife is a vegetarian, along with our daughter. My boys and I ate lamb, chicken and beef Mar 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food was very good. My only suggestion would be to mention what is included with the entree. From the description it seems the only thing you get is the meat. Mar 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Little pricey for portions when no salad included. Mar 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Service was very slow - the slowest I have ever experienced here. Usually there are several waiters but on this Thursday night, there was one man and he would walk away after setting your food down before we could ask for something else. We had to wait 10 minutes sometimes for him to come out from the back room and it was very upsetting as we brought 2 guests. We have always had good service here. The food was excellent as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owner was very personable and very active in the restaurant. Service was very good. Food was very good. They also had the best Baklava I have ever had and I worked for two Greek restaurants in the past. Appetizers were excellent too! Mar 6, 2014
