My first experience in Turkuaz wasnt pleasant at all. We went here around 3yrs ago to celebrate my birthday and the experience with the chef totally let me down. It started very nicely with the appetizers until we get into main of lamb shank (the one like meat balls) When we tasted, it has this weird smells that you can... More

Delicious! My husband loves the lamb shank, I love the lentil soup and mezzo plate. Beautiful place. Their baklava is divine! My only complaint is that it is way too hot inside to be a nice restaurant. I can barely enjoy my food due to the fact I'm sweating the whole time I'm there. Ps... BYOB +corkage fee. No wine...

I love Middle Eastern cuisine in general. Up and down the spectrum of price and ambiance, I have almost always enjoyed the flavors of the food. Turkuaz is a decided step above other similar restaurants I have patronized. The difference is in the fresh quality of the food and simple preparation that enhances that freshness. The atmosphere is quite nice... More

First visit but definitely not the last. Saturday lunchtime, three generations of us. The decor is attractive, interesting and a table topic in itself. A nice buzz from the other customers. Staff were welcoming, helpful and prompt and there were no mistakes with our order. Food and drinks arrived in good time - and the food was excellent. From the... More

I have been to Turkuaz several times for both lunch and dinner. I have found the food to be consistently excellent. I especially like the mezze - I order it every time. I also recommend the iskander kebab. There is always something interesting in the photographs throughout. The little shop downstairs is a nice way to stretch legs between courses.... More

I'm a big fan of Turkey and Turkish food, so it's great to be able to enjoy Turkish cuisine at home. I can't decide what is best because everything is soooo tasty. The humus, in particular is just yummy. And not only can you enjoy a great meal, the service is also commendable, the restaurant tastefully decorated, and you can... More

Had a lovely experience with friends at Turkauz Restaurant on Senopati and really enjoyed the mezze platters to share and great atmosphere. It was really busy as a friday night which was great and it was a great vibe there. You can bring your own wine if you drink which is great for people who want that option and theres... More

After having heard and read raving reviews about Turkuaz, I finally wanted to give it a try. In short: • interesting interiour, nice subdued colors, pretty tinted glas lanterns • Mezzeh platter, parsley salad (tabbouleh), lamb shank, Ayran and bakhlava with turkish coffee. Salad was too sour and oily and lacked the crunchy freshness you'd expect, Mezzeh platter (babaganoush, hummus...)... More
