“love your lamb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Authentic is the reputation this restaurant has in Jakarta, but I wonder just how many residents here have been to Turkey. Regardless, it is delicious and as an added attraction we can walk there from our house, although one takes one's life in one's hands crossing Jalan Gunawarman.

Lamb shank was tender and tasty, and they offer several variants. The wide range of hot and cold starters (mezze) was irresistible, and we could have happily dined on these alone. There was a wide range of vegetarian dishes on offer and one of these with the lamb shank was perfect for two diners to share.

Babes in arms are welcomed, staff are friendly and always ready to help, but the bill was probably one third higher than we expected, since we didn't have any alcoholic drinks.

“Best Turkish Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I have been to Turkuaz several times now and it is consistently good. Certainly one of the best restaurants I have been to in Jakarta. Lamb shanks, kebabs, mezzo platter, it is all good.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Been to Turquaz 3 times and all three did not disappoint! Great food and atmosphere.

The pine nut mezze platter is the highlight along with the puffy bread and sesame bread. They also have the best lamb shanks in Jakarta.

Really recommend the place!

“Quite a nice turkish resto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have been there 3-4 times. I liked the food a lot, all the dishes taste right and are fulfilling; especially the bread is delicious.

The service was always punctual and the waiters fairly knowledgeable.

Only problem, they don't serve wine...
