This could have been five stars, but the smell of hookah smoke coming through the air vents and open door to another room lowered the experience. The food is delicious and plentiful. Lots of appetizers to choose from. Lamb dishes are exceptional. Salmon was prepared perfectly. Dessert of flan was enough for four to share. If they figure out how to keep the smoke out, we'll be back!

Good casual food for a Sunday nite!
Very nice service, not a fancy place, thus a great neighborhood experience!

Mandolin Kitchen became one of our best restaurants in Sandy Springs. Great friendly service and great food. Our favorites are cabbage rolls, shish kebab, lamb chops. Great place for a weekend dinner.

Good food, but especially good service. Everyone from the hostess to the bartender stopped by our table to make sure we were properly taken care of. I let them know it was my fiancee's birthday and they not only sang happy birthday, they brought out complimentary Baklava with a sparkler in it. I only wish that they had a few further options as far as drinks. I definitely recommend this place for a good night out with friends and loved ones.

Get together with friends. First time we were disappointed. The appetizers were great, as usual! The service was slow, we had to keep searching for assistance. Two of us ordered salmon as an entree, both were raw, and had to return to the kitchen. The lavash came to the table after requesting it , but it was not baked or seasoned...it was like a raw tortilla! Not sure we will go back. We have eaten there 10 times and we were very disappointed.

My brother's girlfriend is Turkish so this reservation was for her. Not only did they have Turkey wine but the traditional Turkish dish was as she said" a little piece of home and the best she's had state side". She was able to speak Turkish with the waiter which made her experience perfect. For me the hummus and dips were lovely and fresh as was the fire roasted bread. A very nice evening for sure!

Took a party of 5 to Mandolin Kitchen for my Mother-in-law's 80th birthday. They were very accommodating, finding a booth in which we could all fit comfortably. Started with a trio plate of dips, which were all good. The bread, I must note was excellent. Some pita, some similar to focaccia. Everyone was pleased with their main choice. We had the shrimp kebobs, whole sea bass, salmon, and lamb shank. Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious. Service was pleasant, but a little inattentive. I think there may have only been one waiter for the several tables active. Just a minor point. Otherwise a pleasantt surprise, better than Rumi, at a lower price point...

Mandolin Kitchen is a warm friendly welcoming melting pot of cultures coming together for outstanding food. The management team makes you feel at home and truly welcome.
The shrimp dish is excellent as is the Lamb shish kabob.

This is a constant go to restaurant on our dining cycle.

We went on Saturday afternoon for my friend's birthday. I love Mediterranean food and try pretty much everywhere I go, and Mandolin Kitchen is one of the BEST. Server was friendly and knowledgeable; space was bright and airy - they have a nice covered patio area; food was fantastic, authentic from the bread service to the tea at the end of meal. Babagannoush was not too smoky or garlicky, just RIGHT. Don't miss Lahana Sarma (stuffed cabbage rolls) - one of the best I ever had. We were too full to try, but would like to try their wood-fired Pide and house special next time. I also heard they do fantastic fish. Definitely be back for dinner service.

We had Birthday lunch for a friend and everything was wonderful. Very warm welcoming atmosphere, unique beautiful design, excellent food, awesome service, very good value. Restaurant offers many choices for meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes. We stayed for three hours and only had to leave because one of us had a test next day and needed to study. Thank you!!!!

Took my mother for a birthday, if someone is looking for authentic Turkish cuisine and know the difference, this is probably one of the top few in Metro Atlanta. We went at 2:45pm on Saturday so it was quite slow, this can’t comment on noise level. Restaurant does not look very fancy from the exterior, however interior ambiance is quite pleasant. We were the only two tables at that time so our service was implacable. We ordered variety of main courses only to share, all four dishes were well prepared with lamb chops being on top of the chart.
