With its deep red walls and skylight dining room, Pasha is one of the best Turkish restaurants in North America. Anyone who wants to take a "magical carpet ride" to Istanbul in a very elegant and comfortable ambience and warm and friendly service should visit Pasha.

Authentic Turkish touch in NYC

Courteous staff handled food orders very quickly - we spent less than 90 minutes for overall restaurant experience, which included being seated for prior table reservation, appetizers, 2 entrés, Turkish coffee and credit card payment.

We looked forward to eating at Pasha, as it hashed excellent reviews. We were disappointed. The service was mediocre - no passion. I had the chicken dish; my girlfriend, flounder. Both well prepared, reasonably presented, but not outstanding.

On a quiet side street off of Columbus Avenue, this place has the feel of having been around for many years, which it probably has. The decor is cozy and warm, with a realistic Turkish flavor--it's probably a bit dated, but not shabby in the least. I've been here several times over the years, and the food and service are...

Turkish food is probably my favorite so my husband and I decided to dine at Pasha last night (Jan. 9, 2016), after reading the great reviews on here. We had 7.30 reservations but arrived about 20 minutes early so we decided to sit at the bar and have a glass of wine. The bar area is small but the decor... More

We have ended up there after a long day walking, just by chance. And it came out to be a very pleasant experience. The restaurant was full but we were lucky enough to be offered to seat in the lounge area in very cosy & comfortable seats. We enjoyed the pre-fixe menu, everything was good, full of traditional Mediterranean flavors.... More

Highly recommend this place: service was excellent and everything we ordered was unbelievably delicious! The place looks quite nice, but has very reasonable prices, quick and seamless service, while food is quite authentic. Try the lamb dishes and manty, although anything you order would be quite amazing!

Pasha has been a reliable choice on the West Side for decades. Kemal, the owner and his staff are welcoming and attentive. The marinated stuffed chicken breast and cornmeal-breaded trout are excellent, among others. Service, lighting, decor and acoustics are European-grade. Prices are reasonable, enhanced by prix fixe menus and Lincoln Center discounts. One letdown: a little too long between... More

This is a b busy place before theater or concerts, as it is not far from Lincoln Center and less crowded and noisy that many of the places closer. Good Turkish food with a Prix Fixe that is a bargain

This is a restaurant on the slightly pricier end of the market. The staff were very welcoming when we turned up without a booking. The food was not the typical Turkish food we are used to in Australia however it was delicious. Our waiter Kamal was very helpful in assisting us in choosing dishes to share and talked us into...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
