Istanblue Mezze & Grill House is to be found along Singapore’s historic Baghdad Street, at number 17 in Bugis to be precise. Their menus feature a huge selection of Turkish dishes, and you can rest assured that where heat is required, all dishes are cooked over a charcoal fire the traditional Turkish way. Of special note are the Special Meze plates, in particular the Istanblue Shish Kebab mezze.
The well-known Turkish dish of borek, cheese and herb stuffed filo pockets, is represented, as are lesser known delights such as hellim izgara (grilled goats’ cheese) and the baloon bread, which has to be seen to be believed. The patlican kebab is a favourite, with aubergine sharing the skewers with tender lamb. Come on down to Istanblue Mezze & Grill House in Singapore’s Bugis for a real taste of Turkey.
Four of us celebrated our friends 77th birthday there on a Sat evening. From the time we entered into the restaurant, we were greetly warmly and they entertained our request to sit upstairs, which was a beautiful setting of Turkish lamps, wallpaper, tablecloths & crockery and we got some lovely pixs too! The food was really fresh and delicious. The best turkish lamb dishes we had eaten! We had the Cold starter mezze platter with lovely turkish bread, hummus baba ganosh, dolma. Also had the grilled platter of lamb chops (the best), adana lamb, lamb kebab, chicken kebab and chicken wings all so succulent & delicious. My friend also tried the falafel and vegetarian moussaka. The service was excellent and they generously included the kunefe dessert (on the house) for my friend's birthday. We finished off with turkish coffee & tea. The Best thing, I liked was their warm, personal & friendly service! We will definitely return and recommend the Istanblue highly!
istanblue food is just superb but its a bit costly for that serving but its insanely delicious. Although empty when i went BUT i seriously believe you should make a reservations.
The service was good, and the food was good as well though I have had tastier lamb pide elsewhere. The service staff were accommodating and attentive.
Meat is marinated and cooked well. Tasty dishes with friendly service. Try the Ali Nazir and lamb Adana Kebab.
Nice ambience, central location and good authentic Turkish food with a killer Kunefe to boot! Would highly recommend for anyone looking to get their Turkish fix!
Good food and helpful service. It'd be great if there could be tap water served without charge. Otherwise, dinner was perfect and food was authentic.
The restaurant did not have enough staff for dinner time. Wanted to order chicken dishes but it wasnt available till one hour later. It was kind of inconvenient for me.
Food was less then mediocre. The hummus was not fresh and came from the fridge. Also there were hardly any spices used. A disappointment all in all!
