Description: The Cazbar is Baltimore’s first and only Turkish Restaurant located at the heart of the Historic Charles Street District. We feature authentic Turkish cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. We are open daily for Lunch and Dinner. Join us on Friday or Saturday nights for our exotic Belly Dancing shows and our new lounge. In addition, we have two very unique and beautiful banquet rooms that can accommodate an intimate dinner for 2 or a gathering for 100. If you’re in the mood for something light, visit us at our Kebap House in Columbia, Maryland. For corporate, residential, or hotel catering, please contact me at chef@cazbarbaltimore.com I invite you to join us for a unique dining experience at the Cazbar. -Haluk Kantar Chef / Owner

About 6 blocks from the inner harbor crowd but well worth it. Exceptional spices, fresh salads and tasty soups are just part of their cuisine. Kid friendly too.

This is the best restaurant we have eaten in Baltimore since coming here starting January 2017.

Cazbar is a great find, even though it is not in proper DC region. I really like this place for its location on the main street Baltimore where parking is free after 6 p.m. weekdays and all of Sunday. But what makes it worth visiting is its strong suits of the well-seasoned grilled seafood and meats (not too salty like many grill establishments), the amazing appetizers of babaghanoush, hummus, and that to-die-for Ezme, the thoughtful sides and sauces that balance each plate well, and the pide stuffed-bread and moussaka that are worth trying. For $2 more, you can finish your meal with a glass of Turkish chai that was both slightly bitter and aromatic (reminding me of sitting by the Bosphorus sipping many cups of it), and the flaky nutty not-too-sweet Baklava that would give the diner a truly happy ending. To boot, the decor and service were both charming and extremely appealing, especially the congenial waiters we had on our visits.

Quite nice. A unique experience for us. Service was very pleasant and efficient. Menu choices were a challenge but very tasty. One-Of strange drinks were an adventure.

They're in the midst of some redecorating so only the upper level is open. Servers are friendly and attentive. Food was just so so. The lamb shish kebab was tough. The kofte and lamb Adana were better. Maybe I'm just not an expert but the cold mezes were on par with supermarket stuff. For the price it really wasn't a good experience.
