The Bosphorus Istanbul Cafe 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 from The food was amazing, again. The Bosphorous Special, a mixed grill of several of their meats, as well as their appetizer sampler, is the perfect combination for trying multiple dishes. The only complaint I have is their did not do a good job of clearing the ice from their sidewalk, it was pretty treacherous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I took my three teenagers to Bosphorus Cafe because we were visiting Indianapolis this weekend and we had such an amazing experience! It was a Saturday and last minute and we hadn’t made reservations but the host found a way to seat us. The inside is a bit small, very quaint but as soon as I walked in I knew it was going to be authentic. The atmosphere definitely told you this is true Turkish dining and almost every table was full with patrons. We ordered the a couple appetizers, some doner gyro plates and dessert and EVERYTHING we ate was amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful and all worked together on a busy Saturday to make sure all the patrons were taken care of. I would definitely recommend this particular location, thank you for the great experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Bosphorus! Their appetizer sampler is one of my favorite things here. Turkish wines, coffee, and tea compliment the food. Food quality is consistently fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tight sitting.....felt cold air on my feet most of the time..... it is winter, but they could put another door in the entrance to block the cold air.But the food was great and will go back.
