Welcome to the sensory overload that is Turkey's most populous city. An authentic Turkish bazaar with traditional and contemporary eats, Downtown Istanbul is a culinary adventure just waiting to happen.

Europe meets the fringes of Asia here in Hawthorne with Turkish culture represented in its fullest, most beautiful form. Outside, it models itself like a European bistro on a sunny city square with added warmers for chilly evenings. Inside is a mixture of subtle patterns and colours. Communal booths are upholstered in beautiful Turkish fabrics, geometric tiles are placed in stunning formations and exposed brick walls add a rustic flavour that's hard to beat.

As for the menu, it's as colourful as they come with feasts made up of chargrilled meats, lush salads, bountiful grains and sauces. Let's start with the mezze which consists of fresh Turkish breads, kofta balls, homemade falafel and much more. You can enjoy supper with all these tasty small plates or with a bigger main.

Downtown Istanbul is now open for breakfast on weekends - their must try's include Baklava Granola, Hummus Bowls, Sucuk Eggs and the Sultan's Big Breakfast.

Mains are a mixture of pides (Turkish pizzas) that are topped with anything from lamb mince to marinated chicken and pastrami. Alternatively, see what the chargrill is cooking up! With the likes of lamb shish, prawn skewers and a King’s Mixed Grill, getting that irresistible treatment, Istanbul is there for the tasting.

Another incredible restaurant offering from Alemré Hospitality Group; the home of Brisbane fun dining.
