Brooklyn >Istanbul Seafood Restaurant
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!!. Istanbul has good food and it's a cute place. However, there are a lot of things I did not like about this place. For starters, It was a hot July day and they did not have Air Conditioning on. My wife's allergies flared up and as a result, she couldn't enjoy herself. The wait-staff were overly attentive. We were being interrupted every couple of minutes. However, they didn't refill our water till the end of our meal. The management was very rude. I had asked them a question about my meal and it seemed that he wanted to rip my head off for asking the question. I was almost knocked down by one of the managers who forcibly tried to grab the check. We weren't thanked or invited back. The only exception was the Hostess. We also noticed that the waiters/management seemed to favor certain people in the restaurant. Overall, a very disappointing experience and a waste of a $100.00 bill.
In Sheepshead Bay, Turkish cuisine moves beyond kebob as it reaches for a broader authenticity..
The roomy, yellow dining hall, with its Moorish architectural touches and faux gold bas-reliefs, first evokes the Middle East. On closer inspection, classical busts, model ships, and marble floor tiles suggest neighboring Greece. Customers will find both regional influences on the menu, which favors seafood over lamb or beef. Dishes--sometimes served casserole-style--range from familiar, local catch to fish imported from the homeland's two bordering bodies of water: the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
