Was here for my daughter's birthday. Great food, cheerful staff.


5 of us went. We wanted to taste a number of dishes, so they gave us a variety of appetisers, we shared 4 mains and 5 desserts. Everything was fresh and delicious. Desserts were divine. $200 for 5 people was good for the amount and quality of food. Service was very friendly. Will definitely go again


It was great food.Everybody in australia thinks they are familiar with Turkish cuisine but it is only kebnap that we are familiar with. The real cuisine feeds from an Imperial kitchen which is probably the most diverse one. Nar is the restaurant which appreciates this value most and even adds on it by really innovative rich dishes. I have tried a lot of entrees and dishes. and they were all good. Their signature dish is deserving being the signature dish; grilled chicken breast with sunflower and couple of ther seeds and herbs. I suggest do not leave the place without tasting it. I suggest try to order as much entree as possbile. you would not want miss even one of them. but if only one i suggest Lamb liver. The desert i had was Pumpkin pie with with a milky cream with rice and i could barely stop at second one. I can not finish this without talking a bit about service. They were thi nicest and fastest if asked service i have ever seen. They made you feel that you are the only customer at the restaurant yet they do leave you alone if you want a bit of a private dinner as well. As a result i suggest everyone in Sydney even the ones here only for visit, to go to nar and have this experience.


You can hardly find actual Turkish cuisine in Sydney specially if Nar's offering a Ottoman cuisine. Nar is the one of the kind Turkish / Ottoman cuisine type restaurant in the Sydney .When we went there for special event the atmosphere and service was fantastic and food was delicious.. i recommend every one to try. No one will regret it. Thank you and all the best.. We ll see shortly. Regards, Murat and Sumeyra


We have been to this restaurant over the months a number of times, generally once a forthnight, celebrating most family events, it is the only restaurant in the area where you could get a decent tase of ottoman cuisine. Far superior to anything else in the area in fact.
As soon as you walk in the door you can hear the music of Ottoman, you can smell different turkish spices. You'll be given the best service you'll ever come across in your life. When your authentic ottoman food arrives, you will know that the chef learnt how to cook in Turkey because there really is nothing like it in Austalia. Food is very different. If you are getting bored of eating the same, over and over again, try the different specially selected ottoman dishes by Nar.
Well done "Nar" and keep up the good work!

Great food, great service, best authentic Turkish restaurant in Sydney.


We went to Nar Restaurant with the family and the friends couple of times already. Its rich menu has the the delicious Ottoman Cuisine. The staff members are very friendly and I feel like eating dinner at home... Definetely recommended and you must try the fantastic Tuskish food at Nar restaurant...


Nar presents a unique collection of exquisite Ottoman Cuisine in the heart of Neutral Bay. Delicacies from the 1500 and 1600's palace kitchens come alive in this chic restaurant. Recommend it to all who like fine dining.


We dined here on Sat 6 Aug 11 for our wedding anniversary and was not disappointed. The food was fantastic, authentic and well presented. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive. Would throughly recommend this restaurant for any occassion and will definitely go back to try out the other amazing dishes on offer. You must try the signatory 'nar' dip! Yum!


My wife and I came here while on holiday, on the recommendation of a local, and it was so good we went again the following night. The assorted dips, the Su Borek, the sunflower-seed crusted chicken, the desserts; they have to be tasted to be believed. The proprietors are warm and kind, the service staff are friendly and quick, and the decor comfortable. It is one of the best meals I have had in my travels around the world.


I had a wonderful dinner at your restaurant last Wednesday evening (13/7). The service was outstanding, and the food was excellent. It was very very tasty, and fresh - with outstanding presentation. We had a lovely time, and I have already recommended you to family & friends. My sister visited your restaurant 2 days later and also had great reviews. We both LOVED the dips with fresh turkish bread -YUMMMMMMM. Thanks!


My husband and I went to Nar Turkish this evening 14/7/2011 and were so impressed, we have organised a birthday there in August for our family and friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh tastes of the food and the quality was fresh, fresh fresh. Talk about eating clean well this is the place to go.


Organised my wife's birthday at this restaurant, and the were extremely accommodating for a large group. The food was wonderful and fresh and the service was friendly and prompt. We will definitely be returning.


I really enjoy dinner at nar.Amazing n fabolous food.nar don't hav any pide n shish nar hav real ottoman food n real ottoman night.i really enjoy wid belly dancer n wid owner of dis restaurant they r really friendly n helpfully.thans fred n angel..c u soon.....


I really enjoyed dinner here. It was not like your usual Turkish restaurant. The service was also great!


Being of Turkish ancestry, I've sampled my fair share of Turkish cuisine over the years. But I was pleasantly surprised when I enjoyed dinner with family and friends at NAR on a Friday night. Don't walk in expecting 'shish kebab' or 'pide' here. Instead, what you'll get is an incomparable gastronomical experience - at least within the sphere of Turkish cuisine, with a variety of food that can be traced back many centuries, each unique and with their own specific date in history. Everything is made on order and this resonates in the freshness of your meal. I could talk about about the exceptional service at NAR, but I'm too busy planning my next visit.


What a gem! Finally someone answered my prayers and opened a Turkish restaurant on the north shore. I have travelled around turkey and really appreciate good Turkish food. This place was fantastic! Service was impeccable, it wasn’t too loud so we could all hear each other talking and the food was divine. My only criticism would be that it needs more salads. That is what makes Turkish cuisine so good.
We came here for my husband’s birthday, they were overly generous with complimentary dishes from the kitchen and at the end they gave him a big chocolate cake. He felt very spoilt and my whole family walked out with a smile.


The Sultans of the Ottoman Empire enlisted chefs from the growing empire which once stretched from the Middle East all the way to the borders of Austria. You will taste real Turkish food influenced by the Middle East, Mediterranean and the Balkans. Being part historian, to me it was a journey lead by a gustation of flavors from the finest foods, dips and mezzes that only sultans got to enjoy. Outstanding indeed!


First, I want to say that I never write restaurant reviews, but I really felt compelled with this one. We went to Nar Restaurant last Friday night and were totally delighted with every bit of our experience at this very fine restaurant. The waiting staff were very helpful and friendly, and in particular, the owners, Angel & Fred were so welcoming. Angel helped us through our food selection and we were not disappointed. We had the "Ottomans Feast" and the amount of food was spectacular - we took home most of our main meal since there was so much, and marvelled at our meal again the following night! From the mezze plate, followed by entree, main meal and to the scrumptious deserts turkish coffee - very impressive. We are planning our next visit there already - Angel tells us there are Belly dancers on Saturday night.. can't waitThanks again to Angel and Fred and to all the wonderful staff for such a great night. Diane & Kevin


Fun atmosphere, great value for money, authentic, fresh and delicious food. Great family run restaurant that I would recommend for parties and functions.


I loved the food, the ambience, the friendly staff and the whole experience of eating at NAR. It was wonderful to try dishes that were freshly made from scratch, were unique and authentically Turkish. This is a gem of a restaurant, definitely worth visiting.


absolutely finger licking, delicious food cooked at heart with friendly service with a smile... as close as you can get to 'authentic' in this part of the world


i just loved this place and so did all my family and friends i have taken there since , the food is so fresh and amazing . you feel like a king or queen being waited on and being served the best food around highly recommend this place for a great night out james

The food is fabulous, the staff are very friendly, the ambience is fantastic ..... and THERE IS NO CORKAGE CHARGE !!!! I have been several times, and will definitely be back !
