Since establishing itself as the first ever Turkish restaurant in Leicester, Istanbul have been serving authentic cuisine offering a piece of Turkey just outside of the city centre. Located along a popular shopping street, it’s a great place to stop after a busy day out with friends. If you fancy a drink after your meal, take a walk down the road to Nine Bar.

This welcoming venue is great for smaller groups of friends and a lovely place to bring the family to eat some exciting cuisine in comfort.

The range of meze style starters offered here are great for sharing if you’re after a snack or as a tapas style lunch. A selection of wraps make fantastic lunches, with the option of a Chicken Kofta Wrap, or opt for a light soup to warm you up in the winter.
