Istanbul Bistro Twin Cities

Just went to Istanbul Bistro in I guess Wayzata, and I was pretty happy with the meal. The appetizers that I got to try included a feta dip and hummus, both of which were very good, and stuffed grape leaves, also good. The entree I had was the Iskender, which is like a gyro served over pita in spicy tomato yogurt sauce, which I really enjoyed. My husband had the rack of lamb which he didn't really like, but he conceded it probably was not an ideal choice. Another in our party had a kebab which I tried and enjoyed. 2 people had the chicken borek, which I am hoping they will post on, since I did not get to try it!
The ambiance is pretty nice, much more upscale than the other Turkish restaurant in town, Black Sea.
It is on Wayzata Blvd near Carlson.
Jeremy Iggers posted on this place about a month ago, and liked it, I would recommend it as well. I posted the link below.
