Turkish food in the Tampa Bay area?

Any suggestions? I live in N. St. Pete but willing to travel

  1. The ones I know of in the area are in Tampa.

    Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
    Sunday 3 p.m.-10 p.m.

    6102 S. MacDill Ave. Tampa, FL

    is the same owner/menu as Shish Kebab and Turkish Cuisine in Town and Country which is the location I went to.

    10061 West Hillsborough Avenue, TAMPA - (813) 443-5118

    There's also one or two places in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami but I don't know if you'd want to travel that far.

    It's not necessarily Turkish I don't think but there's this place called Tangerine on Kennedy close to downtown (right across from U Tampa) that isn't too bad.

      Is Shish Kebab good?
      I always pass by and I think about popping in....

      For the record----- I don't think I've ever written the words 'shish kebab' before!

        I've never had Turkish food before that so it seemed good to me.
