We are not used to Turkish cuisine so it was a double enjoyment to try their offerings. We chose from fixed price menus. One has a selection for each course. Our entree of Sigara Boregi, feta and spinach filled philo pastry was to our liking, so was the filled chicken with spinach and I believe almond. Our friend had lamb... More

Food took an hour to arrive, but was promised for 30 minutes. Fish was seriously overcooked and rest of the meal was cold and nearly inedible. Deliver person was given the correct address, but was sent to a cross street 18 blocks away.

We are fond of Turkish food and are regulars at Pasha on our visits to Lincoln Center. There is an excellent variety of dishes, all beautifully prepared, ranging from the simple (I had a chicken Kebab with rice and sweet peppers since I wanted something that would be easy on my digestion,) to the most exotic sauce mixtures. Service is... More

Rating should really be 3.5.I have to say up front that my choices were a bit limited by my gluten free self. That said the waiter was very good and cautious in his suggestions and that was helpful. Sadly I couldn't do the prix fix which was an excellent deal (my friend did get this). The wine (pinot noir) was... More

We hadn't been here in a couple of years, and then someone got a yen for the lamb with yoghurt and tomatoes and the apricots with clotted cream. The special dish that night was minced lamb patties, which were fabulous. The staff was very willing to assist our large party with all kinds of "different" requests. The food was overall... More

Taken here by "natives" of the area, and was pleasantly surprised how comfortable and enjoyable it was. There are three areas for dining , including a very attractive bar area with small couches for drinks and meze. We eat in the largest room, but the noise level was fine and there was plenty of space between tables. The service was... More

We always like to return to Pasha. The Turkish dishes are well prepared and tasteful. Sharing a number of the appetizers works well. Both the lamb shank and the lamb cubes, which were extremely tender, were enjoyed at our table. There is a variety of desserts. The stuffed apricots are very good. Service is pleasant and attentive.

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.
