Cititour Review:

Istanbul is a go-to spot for kebabs and gyros in the Bath Beach section of Brooklyn.   The food is pretty much spot on.  Loved the baba ganoush, but not a big fan of the hummus which is a bit grainy.   The grape leaves are plump and delicious if you like them vegetarian style.  Homemade Turkish bread is always a hit, although they probably should offer more.   The lamb kebabs are among the best in town as is the doner kebab, especially with a splash of their homemade yogurt sauce.   I tend to eat at the corner location which is self serve, but a full-service cafe is right next door.
