It was your typical Turkish food. I had the vegetarian casserole which I thought was okay. I imagine the meat dishes were better.

I really tried to like this, but frankly it's a good waitress "selling" well. Asked about how I'd like my lamb for the (I'd fill in the blanks here but their web site is down for the menu!

Read about this restaurant, and was very pleasantly surprised. Great pre fixe menu choices. Everything was beautifully prepared, and had wonderful taste and texture. The stuffed chicken breast in a cream sauce was to die for.We were also so lucky to have a charming Turkish waitress who took wonderful care of us. A great place to dine.

Utterly mouth-watering and beguilingly beautiful. And, that's just the scents of spices and grilled food wafting through the unassuming door-way as you enter this oasis away from the hubbub of New York's mad chaotic frenzy... This Upper West Side restaurant is by far one of the BEST if not the veritable BEST eatery in New York city, alas State, by... More

Pasha has a lot going for it. The location is convenient to transportation and a short walk from Lincoln Center. The decor is great, cocktails are great, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food is consistently excellent. I have traveled in Turkey and found Pasha's food to match some of the best I had in Istanbul. My favorite... More

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.
