There are numerous choices on this street but this is my favorite. You feel transported as soon as you arrive. Beautiful lanterns and artwork lend to the exotic feel. I started with hot ginger lemon tea which was delicious. Then I ordered the vegan dumplings. Generous serving with delicious yogurt topping and fresh greens. My colleagues ordered kabobs and were...

We took a group of 12 ladies here before a show at the Royal Farms Arena, just down the road. Turkish menu with something for everyone. I would come here for a cozy, romantic dinner for two, yet I would also bring my whole family of five here. The grilled meats are delicious and the dips are also very good.... More

The food was excellent, the waitress friendly, quick and attentive, the atmosphere pleasant, and the price very reasonable. The portions of the mixed meze I ordered were not huge, but large enough, and they kept bringing tasty bread. A good place, as others have noted, for vegetarians and vegans. We all enjoyed it!

We would love to get to go to Cazbar many many more times! We loved both visits: once with adult friends, once with our two children, 11 & 13 year old girls. Both times we got the Sultan's sample platter. We love it but next time we plan to branch out a bit.

The was my first encounter with Turkish food and it was terrific! I started with the pumpkin soup which was seasoned beautifully and the perfect soup for a cold, cloudy and raw day. The accompanying bread was fresh and warm. I could have eaten the entire container all by myself. The beet dish, a finely chopped dish of beets with... More

We stayed at The Embassy Suites in Baltimore and this restaurant was within walking distance. We had been to Turkish restaurants in New York City that were excellent and that offered authentic Turkish cuisine, but Cazbar did not measure up. I ordered a pide, a version of a Turkish pizza, with spinach, red onions and feta and I found it... More

We had a great meal here - child had the fried shrimp, and we had the manti and the eggplant dishes. The portions are just right - not too big, not too small. You can enjoy multiple courses and have a lengthier eating experience. The tea and mango soda is also worth trying. This is a neighborhood eatery - which... More

One of the best meals we've had in Baltimore. Quiet for lunch on s Sunday. Pumpkin soup is unique and full of flavor - loved it. Hummus and bread were define. Hubby had lamb pide and really enjoyed it. I had the chicken from the $14 lunch menu - could have had more flavor. Service was attentive and pleasant. We... More

This is currently one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore. The hummus is great, perfectly smooth and well balanced. The Saksuka is great too. In fact the cold mixed mezzo platter is my go to order, because all of them are great. My last visit, my parents and I shared that and a mixed kabob platter. The meets were perfectly... More
