Manchester’s Premier Turkish & Mediterranean Restaurant

Welcome to Café Istanbul


Café Istanbul is proud to be Manchester’s longest established independent restaurant, serving authentic Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine for nearly 40 years. We offer a superb selection of hot and cold mezes, all the traditional main course specialities, (many with our own twist), delicious vegetarian dishes and an excellent wine list. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Freshest Ingredients

Café Istanbul only uses the freshest and best ingredients. Meat and fish are prepared daily on the premises and cooked to order on our coal fire grill. Turkish pizzas and breads are made in our pizza ovens, whilst a great selection of traditional dishes are lovingly prepared by our long-serving chefs. An abundance of amazing flavours awaits you..

Excellent Wines


Café Istanbul offers a comprehensive wine list to complement every dish. From the excellent house wines, to a carefully selected range of exciting reds and whites, (and not forgetting a few rosés), we cater for every taste and discerning palate, and if you’re celebrating, we have the perfect champagnes for your special occasion.
