Its reasonable and the staff is very welcoming and very helpful explaining some of the offerings if... More

We were a party of 4. Went there on verbal recommendation. The humus appetizer - frankly, I had better at home from a Costco container. They must have had a shortage of garlic and lemon juice. Humus in fact is more Lebanese, Syrian, Israeli and Egyptian, not Turkish. But....it got better from there. The Sis Kebab and Islim Kebab were... More

For lunch on a weekday, we had a lot of personal attention (unable to comment on busier times) and help with the menu (three neophytes). Service was prompt; three two course meals ran us $63. I had the falafel and chicken; my son had tilapia. Desserts were well chosen and well explained. Nice, simple decor. A well stocked bar; no... More

My family went there for the Sunday brunch buffet. It was a great way to sample their menu. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and friendly. The Turkish specialty martinis were fantastic as well. The atmosphere was casual and the decor was comfortable. The prices are reasonable and the brunch was a great value. There were couples... More

Walked in following a nearby theatrical performance. Nice to find a good restaurant serving late. Good authentic Mid-Eastern/Turkish food. Good service, good food. One question - why do most Turkish and Greek restaurants have mediocre wine list (Persepolis is the exception).

During a visit to NY we met friends for dinner, at their suggestion. It was a great choice. We arrived about 30 mins early and expected to wait at the bar until our table was ready. The hostess graciously offered us our table and said there was no problem to wait there for our friends. We were asked if we... More

I enjoyed the best iskembe soup I have ever tried, it was served with fresh still warm home made bread. As main dish I had the traditional Izgara kofte, the meat was spiced with herbs and cooked to perfection. Make sure to save some space for the desserts you cannot go wrong with any of the daily choices. My favourite... More

Food is delectable and waitstaff is courteous and friendly. The cacik was excellent but you will need to order extra bread. On their website there is a "Like us on Facebook" for a free drink but it is not instantaneous. They claimed that a certificate will be emailed to you although to this day I have yet to receive one.... More

The Turkish Kitchen is a wonderful dining experience. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable -- Olga is a gem! The three of us shared two appetizers: an artichoke and an eggplant dish. Both were great, as was the warm bread. For entrees, we had grilled lamb (Pirzola) and fish (Levrek) -- superb. For dessert, baklava and a sweet cake... More
