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.

I was here as part of a large group and so that may account for why my impressions seem more negative than the average reviewer. I am usually more positive than most. First, though, we had to wait for almost an hour to order. Then, the food took quite a while to arrive. It was not, as some reviewers have... More

We were staying in a nearby hotel and had walked by the restaurant several times. On our last night in NYC we decided to try this restaurant. What a pleasant surprise. The decor and atmosphere inside was warm and inviting. The restaurant is much larger than it appears from the street. We were greeted by, I believe, was the owner.... More

This is a beautiful, excellent restaurant. All food was authentically prepared in the classic Tukish style.. Not a kebab place, but gourmet Turkish cuisine. The early prix fix dinner is an excellent value. Servers were professional and efficient.

This Turkish restaurant in Lincoln Center area offers an excellent variety of appetizers and entrees at a reasonable price. Try the interesting Turkish wines. Another plus is that the noise level is modest.

We asked my Father-in-law who is fussy and has dietary restrictions, to pick a place for us all to eat as a family (keeping my daughter's veganism in mind). You get the picture. I expected that we wouldn't find much because of all of the constraints. Pasha was on the list and m husband chose it because of all the... More

The Pasha Restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who used to live in Manhattan. She and her husband were regular diners at Pasha's. So we decided to give it a try. We had traveled to Turkey and always enjoyed Turkish food when we could. We were not disappointed. We started with an appetizer; my wife had Ahtapot Salatasi,... More

This Upper West Side neighborhood Turkish restaurant serves reliably good dishes in a pleasant setting. The variety of appetizers are very suitable for sharing by a group at a table. Service is pleasant without being intrusive.
