Cafe Istanbul

Risen from humble beginnings, the space now includes a lounging room with lush pillows and carpets, and the menu has progressed far beyond kayak-shaped Turkish pizzas and kebabs to include such stunning dishes as manti (tiny hand-stuffed meat ravioli) in garlic yogurt sauce and irresistible eggplant preparations. Turkish wines, ayran (a lightly salted yogurt drink), Turkish coffee and tea, and, of course, belly dancers.
