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

We went as a family of four adults. Like most American restaurants the servings were over sized. The food was OK but I expected a lot more for the price we paid. I have eaten better Turkish food from the back of a food truck. Not recommended unless they cut the prices by 30%. You can get better kebabs at... More

My wife and I went to Pasha for dinner on sunday night during our recent trip to NYC. I was blown away by the food, it is YUMMY.

Our group of seven dropped in at noon on a Sunday, after walking in Central Park. It was empty, but a great choice. White table cloths, attentive servers, but not pretentious or schmancy. Tasty food, kids and adults happy. I'd be glad to go back.

Great service. Delectable taste. Super ambience. We had the Sigara Boregi, Manti and Imam Bayaldi...which were outstanding. For the Entree try the Yogurtlu Kebab and Hunkar Begendi. Make sure to finish off with the Turkish coffee and desert. Also a great lounge area to hang out in for a pre dinner drink.

We recently went to this restaurant located on the Upper West side of Manhattan. We were in the area and happened to stumble upon it and it was a good find. The place is deceivingly bigger than it looks. You walk downstairs from the street into the restaurant and immediately get a feel of stepping into an authentic turkish eatery.... More

Walking distance to Lincoln Center, so perfect for a before- or after-concert or show dinner. Bar in the front of the house, with small low tables where people enjoyed drinks and conversation. Looks very much like a familiar neighborhood spot for grown-ups. We agreed that it could be a go-to place if we lived nearby - relaxed enough to sit... More

Dinner on a weekday evening; I made a reservation but it was not necessary - there were plenty of tables still available. Service was polite, quick, quiet and attentive (and they may actually have been Turkish!). Appetizer medley was underwhelming, but main courses were delicious. I had the lamb special - it was tender and tasty. Ambiance in restaurant is... More

Had a delicious dinner here; very tasty and fairly priced. Good attentive service and lovely ambience. We sat in the back room. It was easy to converse with our friends and we enjoyed sharing appetizers and learning new Turkish dishes. Have booked another dinner here next week, pre- theatre, and will try the prix fixe menu then. Good find!
