From the moment we arrived and greeted I knew our dinner would be wonderful. Our aunt who is 91 had a bit of trouble with the stairs and the matte d gave us a table on the bar floor rather than upstairs. Our reservation time was honored. The Shepard salad was so delicious because the tomatoes were of a high... More

The Turkish kitchen is one of new favorite NYC restaurants. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the effort. Great value outstanding service and excellent food. Surprised us with complementary desert (fruit plate) and after dinner drink.

We have been several times to this restaurant in the Murray hill section. It's a great value for Turkish cuisine. The place is packed most nights. Food is good at a reasonable price. Service is prompt. Drinks are great. Wine selection somewhat limited. One of the best restaurants for Turkish cuisine in New York in a clean friendly atmosphere.

Went for the early bird dinner --a great deal. Impressed with the decor ( modern and sharp) and food. Turkish food was very good and surprised at the excellence of the salad. Only "down" was the mint tea -- a tea bag and no fresh mint. Service good once they finally took our order.

I go to this restaurant almost every time I visit NYC. The food is wonderful and given its excellent quality and preparation is reasonably priced. If you like Turkish food, you should like this restaurant.

What a fabulous time my friend and I had! The service was outstanding - we felt like we were royalty. The food was superbly authentic. The dinner lasted well over two hours, and we tipped accordingly. Not once did we feel rushed - the staff seemed genuinely happy to see us enjoying ourselves. The cocktail menu is extensive, so we...

Visited this restuarant for lunch as it was recommended by a friend. The food was nice and different - I selected the Okra wit lamb which was beautifully cooked and very tasty. Generally the menu was full of unknown to me but that is what made it interesting. Finished off with some Baclava which was delicious. Service was attentive but... More

I love this restaurant and have never had a dish I wouldn't reorder. The service is wonderful and they always makes us feel special. If you haven't tried Turkish food - I suggest you go to their Sunday brunch and sample everything on the buffet. The Turkish martini is yummy too!

I have eaten at this restaurant several times, and enjoyed it, but tonight marked the end of my patronage, and quite honestly shock at our experience. We ordered appetizers and salad, and then our dinner. After about an hour after ordering our main dishes, I inquired, what was the issue ? The waitress muttered something that it would be soon....
