Their food is fine. Not great and not bad. Just fine. You can have a solid and filling meal there for a reasonable price.

On February twelfth, 2017, I had the best fish meal I have ever had, the haddock entree at Bursa. It was a thick filet, perfectly and evenly cooked, infused with a lemon essence and delicious spices. Absolutely luscious. I am seventy-three years old. I have lived and eaten great fish in Florida, California, Maryland, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, and many other... More

OMG I love this place for take out lunch and also dining with the family. The kofte with mixed lamb/beef kabob with rice is so good! The chicken kabob is so tender and once again the rice is so good! It gets busy during lunch time so make reservations so you have time to find parking. Parking is available, you... More

We visited Bursa for dinner tonight and we were welcomed with such hospitality and attention. We waited for our table as the place was full but it didn't take long to be seated. Their staff was very attentive and answered our questions promptly. We ordered Mercimek Kofte and it was very well prepared, full of flavor. We also ordered Adana... More

The falafel salad is my go-to and is always a good vegetarian option, but friends certainly like the chicken kabobs.

Very nice evening meal. Lovely feel to the place, with attentive polite staff. Lovely wine and nice food, at a reasonable price. I really didn't need the Greek salad as a first course, as the Kebabs come with more than enough salad.

Great wine list. The combination platter appetizers was a nice portion. There is chicken, lamb, beef fixed a variety of ways. The aroma of spices taste great. The Naan bread is freshly made and delicious! I will be back!

We stumbled on this restaurant accidentally, and can't stop talking about it. Everything was ideal, from the food to the service to the atmosphere. We enjoyed it all--appetizers, great entrees, and some of the best dessert ever. The food was labeled as "Mediterranean" and got a thumbs up from our entire eclectic group: a native Egyptian, two more who had... More

The name Bursa comes from the beautiful city that lies in northwestern Turkey. Bursa is well known with its rich history, culture, attractions and beauties.

In our restaurant, we believe in good quality just as much as we believe in beauty. Our wide range of flavorful mediterranean dishes are being cooked everyday with fresh produce, and our wine list includes excellent selections that match what pleases you .

We are proud of who we are today and are obligated to serve you with warm hospitality at its best.
