This location is easy to find with ample parking across the street. I attended with three colleagues, one of whom wasn't feeling well. Not only did our server just to grab some bread and ginger ale for a queasy stomach but she offered to query...More

Many dishes with aromatic spices and wonderful sauces make choosing what to eat somewhat difficult. My family and friends have not been disappointed in the great food.

The food is comparable to what we enjoyed in Turkey. The red lentil soup was outstanding. We enjoyed the mezze platter, all of which was excellent. They even have real Turkish tea, but unfortunately not real Turkish tea glasses. We will return.

We love the food at Talullas, and last night's was no exception. The lamb shanks were excellent, as were the appetizers, and the waiter showed just the right amount of attention. One thing that was a bit strange, however, was the way in which our...More

they have valets there but if you drive down Franklin (away from Tallulah's) and turn right at the first (or second, I can't remember clearly) crossing there is a public parking space

Graduation is a special situation and the advice of others is very valid. My visits have been in the summer and it was immediate seating when we wandered in.

When you walk through the shadowed glass doors of Talulla's, an instant transformation begins to occur. Your mind and body begin to relax. Your ears pick up on the eclectic mix of music. Your eyes wonder around the walls, decorated in Turkish rugs; then the ceilings, scattered with warm, unique lighting pieces; then the floors... the dark, hardwood floors; and finally, across the plush seating areas, disguised by cushions and pillows and fabric leisurely draped around the frames.
