An unexpected perfect stop - stumbled across this jewel - lamb was perfect and well seasoned - shrimp casserole is a delight and babagonoush is creamy and light - ice tea perfectly complimented the meal

I must admit that when we first drove up I had my doubts. The restaurant is nestled beside this rather sketchy looking shopping center. As soon as we turned the corner, however, all of my doubts faded. Sultan Kebab is a really cute restaurant with...More

We went here not knowing what to expect and we were suprised. The foot was reasonable and great. The restraunt was owned by a real turkish family that spoke turkish. It was truly a great place. Would highly recommend!

I love Eastern European/Middle Eastern cuisine and decided to give Sultan Kebab a try. The service was great and prompt. I ordered the Manti and it was delicious. The flavor combination between the yogurt and red pepper sauce made my taste buds dance with excitement....More

We had been to a conference and decided to try this from the reviews. It was fine but Moby Dicks in Northern Virginia it better I think. Not bad but not over the top.

I frequent Sultan Kebab because the food is really wonderful. They have a wide assortment of traditional, yet easily approachable Turkish dishes. The portions are generous but never leave you feeling miserable and stuffed. I have tried both their sandwiches and their platters/combos. I really...More

Fantastic. Everything was spot on- service, food, flavor, amount, temp and choices. I have never eaten Turkish before so I don't know if it was authentic or not. The flavors all reached out from the homemade pita to the Baklava at the end. This is...More

We shared homemade soup and a chicken kebab platter, with rice pudding for dessert. It was a wonderful meal. The people are very nice the restaurant is very clean. But they do not take American Express

We liked this place. See write up in C'ville newspaper: Turkish delight --- 29 North just past the intersection of Rio Road is an unlikely location for Charlottesville’s first Turkish restaurant, but Sultan Kebab—opened in part by former GM at The Clifton Inn, Deniz Dikmen—has been serving up authentic dishes like lahmacun (that’s a crispy Turkish pizza covered with ground beef, vegetables, and spices), hummus casserole, dolma, kofte, and kebabs (from adana to doner) from that very spot for three weeks now. It’s open every day for dine-in or carry-out from 11am to 9pm and serves homemade Turkish baklava and that addictively strong Turkish coffee or tea for those wanting an after-dinner pick-me-up. Sounds like a meal fit for a sultan.
