Empire Turkish Grill

12448 Memorial Dr.
Houston, TX, 77024, United States
TEL: (713) 827-7475

Just five minutes from Memorial City Mall in West Houston, this Turkish restaurant’s unassuming strip mall location belies an interior of classic white linens, gold chandeliers, and vibrant flower bouquets. A row of large windows also illuminates the space as diners peruse the menu of authentic fare. Although the menu offers detailed descriptions of each dish, the mostly Turkish staff is happy to answer questions for those unfamiliar with the cuisine, recommending favorites like the lahana sarma (cabbage rolls stuffed with ground lamb and herbs) and the ground lamb gyro. Budget-conscious patrons also appreciate the affordable lunchtime specials.

Insider Tip:

Diners seeking an unusual dish should opt for a “yogurt grill,” which features grilled meat over fried bread cubes and yogurt.
