Uskadar is a wonderful Turkish restaurant on the Upper East Side. Very fair prices and authentic Turkish food, run by people from Turkey. Delicious lamb and vegetable dishes.

We stopped there for a lunch, got their fixed price menu. All of us - two older adults, two younger adults and a teenager- were happy with the food. It was authentic, tasty and well presented. Well worth a side trip from the Central Park.

Four of us recently discovered Uskudar and were very pleasantly surprised. We had great authentic Turkish food in a pleasant atmosphere. We all had the $20.00 luncheon special. The patlican, humus and spinach tarator were rich, creamy and delicious. The lentil soup of the day was also excellent. All of the entrees were also excellent. They were well prepared, moist... More

I'm really tardy in writing this review, but it's still worth a mention. Uskudar is just around the corner from me, and it offers one of the best lunch specials I've found in the neighborhood. It's take-out only, but for about $8 you get a HUGE foot-long sandwich stuffed with meat--and a soda. There are several choices (mostly chicken and... More

There are a number of Turkish restaurants in this area. Uskudar has been around for since 1987 so there must be a reason. Firstly, don't expect the prices that are found in restaurants in Turkey. You're in NYC; the rents are astronomical along with everything else. That being said, the food is suitably Middle-Eastern, in some ways not so different... More

Unfortunately, things change. This was a surprising and inventive spot until three years ago. Our last supper --April 2013,-- was just bland. OK food, but there are better choices in NYC for Turkish food...and I do love it. The bill for our party of four came to about $45 pp with one bottle of wine and coffee. The decor has... More

This attractive hole in the wall on the Upper East Side is just the place for a relaxing dinner after a long day. The Turkish dishes are well prepared and flavorful. I had the classic red lentil soup a special moussaka, and spun-sugar-topped kanafeh -- all were excellent. The two younger Turkish women running the place were courteous and helpful.... More

A small, intimate place with delicious Mediterranean food. Three of us went for lunch - it was quiet but we were attentively served and the food was really good.

This was a great surprise. We stopped on a whim and had the best small neighborhood Turkish meal this side of Istanbul. Very casual, very comfortable. No tacky decor. No obnoxious music. No belly dancers and no camels. This is the real thing. Very good mixed grill. Very good grilled liver (giger). Good, cold Turkish beer washes it down like... More
