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.

Great Turkish restaurant: great food, service, and atmosphere. Reasonably priced too. I had the lamb and it was tasty.

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

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

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.
