“My favourite restaurant in Jakarta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The food and service here is consistently excellent. On my last visit, my Father and I shared the mezze platter and a lamb shank for main course. There was more than enough food for two and the waiter didn't try to upsell which made a nice change.
I have also been to Turkuaz with a large group which the restaurant is well prepared for. They have set menus that are served family-style and pack any leftovers for you to take away.
Delicious food and great atmosphere.

“No room for improvement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

We had several times visit this restaurants and never get dissapointed so far. The foods are pricey for Indonesia standard, but the food are worth every penny. A very recommended place to hang out with your families or with special one.

“Excellent Turkish Delicacies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

In order to find another good Middle-Eastern restaurant in the city, I browsed the internet, and Turkuaz seemed to be appealing to try.

At first look to the menu, I was rather confused as the name of the foods are all in Turkish. However, fortunately, they provide explanation of each food in English.
I tried the Lamb Shank with "Kuzu Incikli Hunkar Begendi" (or chargrilled aubergine puree and mozzarella cheese). It's very generous in portion, and most of all very delicious.
I ordered Baklava for dessert, really nice.

Overall, I was very satisfied with the food.
However, the service still could be improved. Some staffs were hospitable, while some were quite less.
I made a reservation, and the restaurant was quite vacant when I arrived. But the waiter offered us seats in uncomfortable location (near the stairs, directly under air-conditioner). I had to ask for a better seat location.

“Yummy yum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Always worth the trip to hike there! The taste is so far consistent. The price is also consistently higher than another Turkish restaurant.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

by far the best Turkish Restaurant in Jakarta, great food, reasonable prices, I particularly like the ambience upstairs, where you end up sitting quite close to other tables, giving it that rather authentic feel of a small restaurant in Istanbul.....highly recommended
