I am a vegetarian and have limited choice for foods when I dine out. Last time, I was in New York, I came across Istanbul Kebab House near Times Square as referred by one of my friends. This is a relatively small restaurant, but still a clean and nice one. The ambience is fresh and the staffs are cordial. I met with Umid the owner of the joint and exchanged a few words with him. I ordered some veg menus like falafel with multiple types of home-made breads. I also took coffee with baklava, which tasted so delicious. I must say they offer the best falafel in NY, although you can get varieties of restaurants around the Times Square. The price is awesome and overall a satisfying experience altogether. A must recommend eatery for dining and takeout orders.

The first time I came for a takeout from Istanbul Kebab House, I have not expected much except some regular lamb kebabs and soups with some breads. But, they have changed my thoughts altogether with their refreshing kebabs and fresh-made breads. I feel quite homey with their foods and they taste so authentic Turkish. The best joint for rich Mediterranean and Turkish dishes, I ever have ordered. Their shawarma and adana kebab sandwiches are just mouth-watering. You will love the taste of all types of veg and non-veg menus on your platter. Whether you are ordering for takeout or having a lunch and dinner in their restaurant, you will find their staff cordial, well-behaved and attentive to you at all times. One of the best food experiences in the New York. A must go for all Turkish and Mediterranean food lovers.

They only have three or four tables, but this was a great choice. I needed a Halal restaurant to eat with a Muslim friend. I started with falafel and hummus, and was really impressed. These were clearly freshly made falafel and were melt-in-your mouth delicious. Then we both had kebab platters. Again, the meat was tender and freshly prepared, the side salad items were delicious and the rice was first rate. I was really impressed by the quality of food in this small place.
