We recently had lunch at Toros , Clifton, NJ. The last time I dined there was pre-covid. When I entered the restaurant I was immediately brought back to the pleasant dining experiences that we had in the past. The restaurant is very pleasing to the...eye, setting the tone for a warm and inviting meal. We were a party of adullts and young children.We had the lunch special , which included soup or salad, an appetizer, entree and beverage( coffee, tea,soda). We ordered various salads to share. Chumus, babaganoush, eggplant in a tomato base, grilled eggplant salad and labne. The salads were very tasty and equally satisfying. I ordered Levrek(bronzini). Others ordered a chicken dish, salmon and a falafel platter. My Levrek was very fresh and delicious. I tasted the falafel , which was crispy on the outside flavorful inside and well spiced. The others enjoyed the salmom and chicken dishes. To compliment our meal we had dessert; Baklava, Kenafe and lemon sherbert. The service was accommodating and attentive. The food was served within a reasonable amount of time. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Overall the lunch was a success . We plan to return again in the near future.More

First time visitor. Went with a Turkish colleague who said it was a must try restaurant. He was correct. Lunch includes soup, appetizer, main and drink. We also had a great dessert that I believe came from Taskins Bakery across the street. Lentil soup and...hummus were excellent as was the eggplant appetizer. Fish courses and sale very tasty and was the after meal tea. I will return.More

We met friends for dinner (it is a halfway point) and were pleasantly surprised. The decor is very nice, service was most attentive, the food was tasty. We shared the shepherd salad and an eggplant appetizer. We also share the elli bamya ( lamb with...okra) which was good. The stuffed cabbage was not my favorite. Then ordered baklava and kadaif which they said was good.More

Nice looking but the food just isn't great. Entrees not even good. For appetizers we had patlican salatasi (eggplant salad), palican soslu (sauteed eggplant with other veggies), both ok but very subtle in flavor and arnavut cigeri - fried liver cubes, which was very good....Entrees were Hunkar begendi and Iskander kebab. Both of these were major disappointments. The hunkar begendi, baked chunks of almb on eggplant puree - there was little lamb which didn't much matter because the cubes were so overcooked they were dry and tough. And had virtually no flavor of lamb. Just dry, tough little cubes of indeterminate meat. The eggplant puree was essentially thick white sauce with some eggplant, little flavor. The Iskander kebab was a plate with yogurt on one side and the doner and bread cubes on the other (rather than a flavored layered dish as we have always seen it). The doner was dry and tough. The bread cubes were tasty though. There are so many terrific Turkish and Arabic restaurants in the immediate area it is a shame to waste a meal here!More

First visit here since we retired south 4 years ago. Still just a good as ever. Fresh warm Turkish bread with butter comes out fast. We shared an order of hummous with our cousins. I had the chicken donner, grilled ground chicken and spices on...skewers. My wife had a large salad with falafel, cousins had a mixed grill plate and a lamb donner. All fresh and tasty. Very good service. Worth visiting.More

We just walked out. Do you like rude waitresses?Then come visit. It was embarrassing to be there. Talked to manager Michael, he made excuses. Do you want all this than come to this restaurant.

this restaurant is 2 blocks from my home & it used to be easy to frequent 1/month. i refuse to go there after my last experience, in fact i called the board of health on them. interestingly i'm not the 1st patron to report them!!!!!...where to begin???? tables were spaced 2 feet apart, tables weren't disinfected, customers were permitted to use the restroom w/out using masks, the busboy didn't keep his mask on continuously & customers are permitted to walk about the restaurant while not eating & w/out a mask!!!!!! the only reason we stayed is that our table was in an alley away from everyone. since this experience i have had wondrous dining in other establishments.More

This is a wonderful Turkish restaurant beautifully decorated to make you feel like you’re in Turkey. The lunch special features soup or salad, appetizer, entree and coffee or tea for a very reasonable price. The lamb kabob was just right. Good choice of interesting appetizers,...yummy warm bread.

You can’t afford to not take advantage of the delicious lunch deal at TOROs Clifton. For around $13 you get soup or salad, bread, appetizer, lunch entrée, and beverage. Hummus, baba ganoush and an eggplant appetizer were superb. Kabobs and branzino were also tasty. Highly...recommend!More
