About the restaurant
I Love Istanbul embraces everything Turkish cuisine and culture has become famous for. Of course that means lashings of succulent kebab meat, grilled to perfection by this small but enthusiastic Turkish team, and all the sweet stuffed and roasted vegetables you can handle. Here inside the Pakpolee Commercial Centre in Mong Kok, though, that also means authentically sandy, sweet Turkish coffee, aromatic teas and delicate or sugary sweets (pick your poison), so it’s a great spot for afternoon tea, unique dessert or a casual mid-morning coffee. The range of Turkish treats on offer extends far beyond most Turkish restaurants in Hong Kong, but be aware that several dishes at this popular spot on Sai Yeung Choi Street, since everything is made in-house and by hand by a small team, need to be ordered in advance, so it’s necessary to reserve well ahead of time for the best experience.
