Full range of great Turkish food, wonderful staff and service, and street seating if desired. A must visit and then you fall in love with place, a small recessed curtained area allows a private dinner for two.

We had wonderful time one night for dinner, weather was cold and rainy so not many visitors, we set by the window looking on the street... lovely atmosphere and great service! We had a fish dinner it was amazing. Coffee and desserts were great too.

Sharing an evening with Neighborhood Mon's from all ethnic backgrounds was enjoyable at Talullas on West Franklin St. My dinner was simple compared to the others, with a nice mix of veggies. My kind of meal!

Graduation is a special situation and the advice of others is very valid. My visits have been in the summer and it was immediate seating when we wandered in.

When you walk through the shadowed glass doors of Talulla's, an instant transformation begins to occur. Your mind and body begin to relax. Your ears pick up on the eclectic mix of music. Your eyes wonder around the walls, decorated in Turkish rugs; then the ceilings, scattered with warm, unique lighting pieces; then the floors... the dark, hardwood floors; and finally, across the plush seating areas, disguised by cushions and pillows and fabric leisurely draped around the frames.
