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.

This is an upper West Side restaurant with a Turkish menu, on which some things are a lot better than others. As a Turk, I love kebab with yogurt. That was a disappointment. The meat was not very tasty, the yogurt sauce was watery with the result that the pides (flat bread) on which the meat sits were soggy. On... More

a bit disappointing because they had changed the mid-day Sunday menu to be more "lunch" and less "brunch," eliminating some of our favorites. That said, we still had our favorite appetizers of zucchini dill pancakes and mashed eggplant, preceded by delicious house bread. Main dishes what we have come to expect.....quite good lamb with pita and yogurt, and chicken kebabs.... More
