The interior seems authentic, dimmed and private atmosphere, nice baklava selection, reasonably priced corkage fee and valet parking. As a bonus, you can find antique carpets for sale in the back room.

Despite it's welcoming facade and amiable personnel the fare at this establishment was decidedly below par I'm afraid to say.. Our entrées in particular were rather insipid, the chicken shish kebab was dry and devoid of seasoning. Disappointing.

I love this restaurant. I've been here several times; with family, friends, and ordered take away. The dips and bread are absolutely delicious and the lamb shanks melt in your mouth. The food is full of flavour and the meat is beautiful and tender. We will keep going back for more!

Restaurant which is very convenient for events with family. We came to celebrate my husband's birthday. very helpful service. We recently ate at the restaurant feel like at home. All employees are friendly and there are no restrictions at all to take pictures with the family. The food is very tasty. From starter to main cours and desert. Really perfect.... More

It didn't meet my expectations, decoration was amazing and staff were friendly, but food not like what i used to eat in Istanbul. Also food prices was high.

Having lived in Turkey and visited many regions there I have to admit I was not very impressed with Turkuaz. The main dish I ordered was Iskender (as I have eaten it in different restaurants in Turkey and wanted to bring some memories back). The dish was very good but it was not your typical Iskender, the combination of tomatoe... More

Revisited after 2 years. Food quality went down as did the service, but it is still a good place if you are craving for Turkish food. Lamb Shank and bread good as ever but everything else so so.

Last ate here in May and had a delicious meal. This time it was an ok meal. Mezze platter was good. Main course of lamb sis kebab was poor quality. Lamb was overcooked and tough (mutton?). Both of us had baklava for dessert. Both serves were dry and tasted a bit stale. Renovations are happening upstairs and downstairs. Hammering and... More

My wife and I have been expats in Jakarta for over 3 years. We love to dine at this restaurant and try to make it out there at least once per month. The mezze platter is fun to share and very tasty. The vegetarian dishes are inspiring. The lamb shank is my favourite and absolutely wonderful. It comes prepared in... More

Went here after two weeks straight of all Indonesian food, so a nice break. Excellent breads and hummus. Everything we ordered was good, especially the lamb shank and kebabs.
