Welcome To Cafe Istanbul

Authentic Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine

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.

Bringing the authentic taste of Turkish cuisine for over four decades, Cafe Istanbul is an independent Mediterranean restaurant in Manchester. As a long-standing authentic Turkish restaurant, we strive to bring the traditional flavours and cooking styles of culturally diverse dishes.

The distinctive taste of authentic Turkish food derives its uniqueness from its rich cultural history. Turkish cuisine effectively reflects its regional influences and incorporates a range of mixed vegetables, fruits and spices, contributing to its distinct flavour, taste and texture. Typically comprised of vegetables and soups, each dish is also accompanied by meat and bread.

At Cafe Istanbul, we serve traditionally prepared authentic dishes made from fresh produce and ingredients. Our specially-made Turkish desserts, impressive wine collection and drinks balance the rich taste of local herbs. We serve strictly halal food in Manchester prepared fresh over a coal grill for an authentic Turkish dining experience.

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

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.
