I went to Turkuaz restaurant few months ago. My husband wanted to take me out just to have dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As we get there it was hard to find a parking space so we had to use the valet service provided by the restaurant. As we entered the restaurant there were no one to greet us...(it's... More

I recently dined at Turkuaz with some colleagues who are currently stationed in Jakarta. They love and frequent this restaurant and wanted to share it with us. We ordered several plates and passed them family style around the table. The breads and dips were wonderful and I filled up more on those two things than on any of the entrees.... More

I love Turkish food - but was bitterly disappointed by this place. As with a previous posting, I had comments regarding the taste of a couple of items which I asked to be passed on to the chef, He came out as Mr. Angry and more or less threw me out. Despite all the rave reviews also posted here, and... More

This restaurant has earned its good reputation. While its location is not very central and its decor is nothing flash, the service was very good and the food truly excellent. We really like Turkish cuisine and the meals we had here were genuine and perfectly executed. We started with a mezze (of course) and were delighted to have delicious hummus... More

The food is excellent. Not cheap but it is worth the price. I never eat any Turkish food better than this one. The chef is very nice and warm person. Sometimes he greet the guests. The chef gave us a special combination menu so we can ate more variety from the menu. Maybe because we knew him from a friend's... More

There are not many places that have fabolous food and minimum corkage. This is the best Turkish resturant this side of Istanbul. The Lamb Shank presentation and preparation is excellent. The breads and desserts are a must take home from the bakery! The atmosphere is lovely with a good separation from smoking while dining then..can enjoy a water pipe after... 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...
