Love this restaurant. I go every time I’m seeing a show at The Royal Farms Arena! Food is delicious and the servers are friendly.

All the dishes were authentic and flavorful. Bought an out of country guest for dinner. He loved it. The price was a bit on the higher side.

This is our second visit to Cazbar. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and our server was very pleasant and attentive. It was a rainy evening and the restaurant didn't have much business until the rain stopped. Then it was almost filled. The mini dumplings were prepared very well, (tender and not doughy) and tasted good. My husband enjoyed them but I would not order them myself. There were so many and the sauce was very rich. The chicken kebob was also very tender. The salad onions were very strong, so much that they were not eaten. The naan was delicious with a "melt in your mouth" tender consistency. We had a wonderful bread dipping assortment the first time we visited there but could not remember what it was.

We will definitely return and also let out friends know about this wonderful restaurant!

All in all, what matters is the food and that was great. Even though our service might have been lacking, it didn't appear other tables were having that problem, so I wouldn't be discouraged by it.

Cold meze platter with 6 or so sampling of spreads and bread. This was a good size even for 3 to share. The doner platter had good spice and tzatiki though meat a bit dry. Lamb 3 ways was a with another diner, especially the chops and the stuffed eggplant also rated well. These entree servings were generous, and our requests to omit the rice, and double the salads was handled well. Good wine list. Service fair but friendly.

The lamb chops were excellent even though they were done medium well (I preferred medium to medium rare). The sultans platter is an excellent way to get a taste of several different dishes and very generous portion. The cold mezze was an excellent way to start our meal. Highly recommend for every day or special occasion.

I found the entrees to be quite overpriced considering the portion size.

It was a slow night and perhaps that's why our server seemed a little too intrusive. My biggest complaint is that our appetizer was served at exactly the same time as our entrees. It kind of defeats the purpose of "appetizer." Despite taking a considerably long time for our food to arrive, once it did, our server appeared several times while we were eating wanting to remove our plates while we were obviously not finished. I've been a server and my practice was always to check on your customers ONCE shortly after their food arrives to make sure everything is to their liking. Any more than that while they are eating, and you are being a pest! She seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of there despite the fact that the dining room was far from full.

Felt ignored for almost the entire time while waiter seemed fascinated by the first date couple at the next table. Even water glass was not refilled. Food bland and uninteresting. Credit card processed on electronic pad with 20% tip pre-selected, so you have to take an active step to select a different amount. It's the presumptuousness of this that is inappropriate. Would not recommend.

Delicious authentic Turkish food and wonderful ambience. From the moment we drove up to the restaurant and spoke with the valet to the moment we left everyone was extremely friendly, genuinely nice and welcoming. The owner and most of the staff are Turkish. The food was delicious. All the suggestions that the waiter made were great. We went on a Friday night and enjoyed belly dancing which was very entertaining and actually good. Will definitely come back.

We've been to Cazbar before and always had a great experience. This particular time it was for my birthday. First, we were not given our original table because the group that was there stayed too long. This meant we were put in a section of the upstairs portion of the restaurant that didn't have a good view of the belly dancing show. This was very disappointing, as it was my birthday and that was the whole point of making our reservation at the time we did. We also had 3 fewer people in our party than we originally planned (called ahead to let them know). But the service was still pretty slow. We were all really hungry and had to wait quite a bit for food in between ordering items. We will still go back because this was definitely not the typical visit at Cazbar.

Fantastic, authentic Turkish options. Heavy on the meat but there was plenty for a vegan too! Highly recommend the esme (sp) and beet/yogurt dip. Bread was yum! Seated us right away (with a reservation, as it was packed) and the service was friendly and quick without overbearing or rushing us out the door.

Visiting from out of town. Bit of a walk from the pier where the aquarium is but the food was top notch. There were 6 of us and everyone was very happy. Our only complaint is that the drinks were too strong. Otherwise highly recommend it.

What a great place. I've never had Turkish food before and thought I'd give it a try. This restaurant is a great place for couples, friends, or for a business meeting for up to 8.

The food is delicious and impressive. I got the Mixed Grill, which has a combination of beef, lamb, and chicken. Cooking one meat well can be done, but cooking 3 different meats on the same skewer isn't easy. Usually, one will be done to perfection at the expense of another. Each piece, every single one, could be cut using the side of your fork. The salad was crisp and fresh. No soggy salad here.

The atmosphere is authentic but not oppressive. The service area is clean and well-designed. The front of the house is well-run and trained. I wasn't bugged every moment but I never felt neglected. Someone here knows what they are doing.

I have been going to Cazbar for my birthday for the past 4 years. It's a tradition by now. And I have never been disappointed. The ambiance, the environment, the food, and the service are impeccable. This past weekend, I had a group of 18 people join me for my birthday dinner. Everything came timely and the service was great. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Stopped in Baltimore on our way back to Philadelphia after the March For Your Lives in Washington DC. We specifically wanted to avoid the traffic and tourists in the Inner Harbor area and were fortunate to have found this little neighborhood gem! Enjoyed Turkish wine, hummus, chicken kabobs, and eggplant moussaka. Ambiance was cozy, service was quick yet not rushed, server was very pleasant, food was delicious and reasonably priced. Didn’t see a parking garage or lot but easily found street parking on a Saturday eve. Would recommend!
