We stopped here while visiting Charlottesville. We were looking for something we've never tried before and Turkish food was it! We loved it! Among the 4 of us dining, we had the İskender kebab platter, grilled chicken kebab platter, sucuk and lamb combination platter, and...More

We had a great family meal. Lamb, chicken, and meatballs were had by family. Portabella mushrooms were an excellent appetizer. Great beer and hot teas to drink. Price was fair. BB

On an overnight stop in Charlottesville (on the way from Florida to New England), I had a strong craving for kebabs. We found Sultan Kebab on Tripadvisor which is easier than finding the actual restaurant since it is hidden by all the road work. But...More

I had a lamb shish kebab with hummus, a nice salad, rice, and fresh pita bread. A filling meal at a good price. The two negatives were that the meat didn't have a grilled flavor (but it was really good tender lamb) and was a...More

We eat lunch here about once every two weeks--though it would be more if my wife had her way. I'm giving the food five stars, even though I'm not crazy about all of it--I think even the food I don't care for is so perfectly...More

First time eating Turkish food and everything was great. The food came out quickly and was delicious. The waiter was very friendly. The baklava was some of the best we've ever eaten. Highly recommend.

We liked this place. See write up in C'ville newspaper: Turkish delight --- 29 North just past the intersection of Rio Road is an unlikely location for Charlottesville’s first Turkish restaurant, but Sultan Kebab—opened in part by former GM at The Clifton Inn, Deniz Dikmen—has been serving up authentic dishes like lahmacun (that’s a crispy Turkish pizza covered with ground beef, vegetables, and spices), hummus casserole, dolma, kofte, and kebabs (from adana to doner) from that very spot for three weeks now. It’s open every day for dine-in or carry-out from 11am to 9pm and serves homemade Turkish baklava and that addictively strong Turkish coffee or tea for those wanting an after-dinner pick-me-up. Sounds like a meal fit for a sultan.
