Reviews for Istanbul Gyro & Kebab

I went to college in Norfolk and freshman year (back in 2011), a friend and I went here, and this has been my favorite Turkish restaurant to date! I've taken many friends here who also love it. The food is amazing and very authentic with such great staff! After graduation, I went back up north, and I probably miss this place the most about Norfolk LOL Every time I've come back to visit, this has always been a stop on the list. I'll be back this weekend, and I can't visit my full review

The restaurant is actually located within the NEON district boundaries. As the district continues to flourish, its vibe will hopefully breathe some new life into the restaurant. It can use a new paint job and some artistic touches. It occupies a sleepy and well worn building in an awkward low profile spot. Its signage catches the eye, but it is easy to miss the one-way turn into the driveway of their parking lot.

So price here just keeps increasing and that's mainly why I hesitate to return. Not sure how they justify the rapid increase. Had the lamb gyro with the hummus and it was tasty but certainly not worth $16 plus change. Small cup of hummus for $4.95 aka $5 it's far too pricey for a lunch spot.
