The warm red brick walls, the kilim weavings covering some of the seating, the bustle of the bakery set at the end of the dining room and the beat of Turkish pop music make this a cozy yet lively spot. Couples, families and single diners will all find a welcoming atmosphere. Authentic Turkish food, with lots of eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, grilled cebabs and yogurt sauces. The good size portions should keep hearty eaters happy, while the hot and cold appetizers, traditionally combined to make a mix of nibbles for the whole table, are a lighter meal alternative. Do you like to be entertained while you dine? Come on Friday nights for live Turkish music performances, or Saturday nights for the belly dancing. A taste of Turkey comes pretty cheaply at this Andersonville spot. One of the restaurant's specialty dishes is called iskender, layers of Turkish fried bread, yogurt sauce, sliced gyros meat and tomato sauce. Another popular choice is Turkish pizza with ground beef, peppers, lettuce, onion and tomato. In the meantime you can try the Turkish coffee or fountain juices, available in sour cherry, lemon or orange. Seating for 100 includes pillow seats, and most tables have a view of the open kitchen. On Friday and Saturday evenings, you can listen live Turkish and Russian music and a belly dancer show. Have you ever heard of Shish Kebab? Pieces of lamb grilled over charcoal - a delicious Turkish dish, well-known by people who have visited Istanbul. What about Doner Kebab? A roll of lamb on a vertical skewer turning parallel to a hot grill - a typical Turkish dish. Turkish Yogurt and other specialties: Pilav and Dolma the name given to grape leaves, or green peppers stuffed with rice and spices might not be familiar to you, but Turkish sweets Lokum Turkish Delight and Baklava are worldwide famous... If you are interested in ethnic food, come and try the Turkish Cuisine!

Turkish Cuisine & Bakery is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The service was very slow. We were there at an odd time -- mid-afternoon on a Sunday and they probably didn't expect to have very many customers at that time. We were not in a hurry but another table seemed impatient. We had nowhere to be so being at the restaurant for over 2 hours was okay with us. If we had needed to be somewhere, we probably would have been impatient too. Instead we just enjoyed our time there. Food was amazing! We did think it was tacky that they charged us for every cup of hot tea instead of having free refills (after all it was their fault we were there two hours, not ours). If they were going to charge us, they should have made that clear when we ordered refills. We didn't know until we got our bill. Having the certificate helped that situation. We might have complained about it if we didn't have the certificate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We belong to a group of supporters of WFMT radio. About 26 times a year there are live concerts in the studio. Afterward, we choose a restaurant and dine. The group can vary from 3 people to 23 people. Turkish Cuisine is one of our favorite places: we always get excellent food, excellent service, and have a great time. Having coupons from helps with the overall cost. We always tip at least 20% of the original bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If not for the food, there's no reason to bother with this place. No one seems to enjoy working there, service is just adequate to keep you from walking out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The restaurant was nearly vacant when we appeared in the early afternoon on a Thursday. Our 3-person party were able to take a large table near the kitchen.We received attentive service from our server, quick delivery of food, and unrequested refills of water and free bread.The menu selection was diverse and plentiful. Though some items on the menu were marked "NC" for not available with certificate.The food tasted good and was well cooked, with the Donner Kebab main dish and the caramelized pudding desert standing out as being particularly excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The food has alway been very good. Would go more often but since they moved, it isn't as convenient. But still love the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good location for Evanstonians (and different from anything they have in town!), excellent ambience (Saturday night live music), gracious service and exquisite cuisine. If you've enjoyed hummus, tabule, and kabobs of Middle Eastern food, you'll love this well-prepared cuisine of even more choices. And the price is right!
