Little Istanbul was a surprise of a find in looking for somewhere nice for lunch. The menu is diverse and interesting and the staff are attentive and professional. We ordered entree and main courses, with our eyes already on the desserts, though when the food came out, I saw that Id have to return for dessert another time - the serves are so generous and I felt spoilt for all the great food that we were treated to. My shaved lamb and sauce dish was beautiful and I wanted more, despite how full I was becoming. The Turkish soda was delicious and the coffees we had were also very well made. I dont get to Tuggeranong very often, but Ill be coming back here quite eagerly and bringing an apetite too!
Terrible service sums this place up. I was there last Saturday night. There were 4 of us and it took forever just for someone to take our order. Granted they were somewhat busy, but we couldnt get their attention or get them to acknowledge our us. Then when the waiter came along we were begrudgingly asked: "What would you like to order". No smile, No eye contact. Nothing. It was as if the waiter was doing US a favor! Our drinks didnt come until almost 3/4 way through our dinner and only AFTER we asked where our drinks were! When the drinks finally came, they were just dumped on our table and they rushed off without a word. Worst. Service. Ever.
Inconsistent sums this place up. I live close and have been here several times and sometimes I am tempted to give it 5 stars but other times I would only give it a 1 star. Food is generally good. Service varies from very good to being totally ignored. Last time I was there I felt as if I must have been wearing Harry Potters invisibility cape. Multiple staff walked right past me but totally ignored me. Value for money is perhaps a little on the low side. I appear to get better service when I order takeaway than when I sit for table service. There are other eating places nearby that I prefer for a quick meal that are more consistent.
Never actually got a chance to eat there as the service was so appalling that we decided to leave rather than endure it any longer. Staff attending did not pay any attention to us subsequent to seating which resulted in a long wait only broken by a member of the dining party standing up and summoning a server. When, finally, we were seen to, the attitude seemed begrudging and demeaning - not a nice place to have lunch - motivating us to leave. I have labelled food as good despite not actually trying any as I cannot post a review otherwise.
Wow got the worst service. Got a coffee at 5:15pm today and the guy who made my coffee was chatting away as if I didnt exist. After ordering, he kept chatting for a while and then about 2 minutes later, a staff member who was astonished said, is anyone going to make this guys coffee? Then I got a non perged, burnt, half ass coffee; which is a shame because I stopped only because it was Belaroma coffee which are my favourite roasters. Pick it up guys !
Despite the food being nice the service is horrendous! On multiple occasions with a large group of 6 to 8 people we have had to stand up and walk to the counter to let them know that weve been ready to order after spending a lengthy amount of time trying to attract the attention of wait staff (waving your hands in the air does nothing and you NEVER receive eye contact). Very disappointing unless you are ordering take away.
Great restaurant. The food has incredible flavours and is very generous in size (dont worry, you can take it home if youre not a big eater). I also love that its BYO. I can pick up a wine I really enjoy from the bottle shop to enjoy with my meal. The wait staff messed up our order once, but they were genuinely apologetic and we were in no hurry. Highly recommend for a relaxed night out.
We had Sunday night tea for 5 people. The interior is really nice, with fresh modern sandstone walls and water feature, the tables are not too close together, and the food is plentiful and delicious. The staff were very attentive without being annoying. We really enjoyed it.
Ive come here a few times, for both takeaway and to dine in. The food is tasty and the staff have been pretty friendly on each time. The coffee is good, the breads and pizza are fresh and taste great. The Pizzas could be a bit bigger, but Ive never left feeling hungry.
Underwhelm, the dips were divided by carrots. Its called a "restaurant bar", but found out it was Byo when we arrived. The meat was cooked well but all other aspects didnt impress. The customer service could be improved.
Take away was cold, didt seem to be freshly cooked. Takeaway on the website differ from takeaway prices in the restaurant. There used to be more filling and when I went when the restaurant first opened.
Great people, great food. Best coffee in Canberra, by far. Had them cater a 100 person function once too, fantastic, very good prices and delivered to Belconnen for free. Trust me on the coffee.
I have eaten here a few times over the last 6 months, each time I have been happy with the food and atmosphere. Each time I go back loving the food, I would recommend it to everyone.
I had to find my own menu. Took forever to take my order. Other people were seated and gone and my coffee never arrived, even after mentioning it to two different waiters.
The service staff were very friendly and all of the food was absolutely delicious. It was nice sitting in their outdoor area, and their dessert platter was amazing.

Yummy Hummus. 3 choice dips with bread awesome combination. Bread was fresh and extremely delicious with dips. We liked Hummus and chilly dips. Highly recommended.
We get take out from here a couple of times a month for the last 5 years. I think that speaks for itself. I always enjoy the fresh pide and the dips are great.
Excellent food, vibrant ambience. Feels very upmarket. Always busy, which tells you that it is quite a popular place with high food turnover. Friendly staff.
Good restaurant, but bad service. Over priced $7, seven dolllars for soft drink?????? Rip off - should not be this expensive in Tuggernong
Trendy place serving quality food from the Turkish and Arab region. The kebabs are succulent and tasty. The apple tea is to die for...
Good food, good coffee, good service. Waiters were polite and helpful but non-intrusive. However, we had our meal mid-afternoon.
This place is always bussy but it is so tasty I want to come here every night it is so good p.s try the lam it good man
The dips and freshly baked bread is the best. The chicken and beef disappoints. Service very good and attentive
Perfect in all aspects! Trust me this will and always will be the closest to the real Turkish food in Oz!
Great price and quality for lunch. 10 bucks each and we got breads dips zukkini balls and cheese rolls.
Good simple Turkish food that hasnt disappointed. More advanced dine in menu well worth trying.
Fantastic service, excellent food, real (melted chocolate) hot chocolates with great pricing.
Had a beautiful meal last night. Really kid-friendly and the service was great. Thanks guys!
Great food , excellent service. Good value for money. Loved the dips and fresh breads.
