When we visit our daughter on the upper West side inNYC we always make sure one of our meals out is at Pasha. Having lived in Turkey as a teenager I can find my favorite foods right here at Pasha. Great food, friendly service. I also like it because is quiet enough that we can visit with each other. Arrive... More

This is a very good Turkish restaurant. My wife and I sat outside where there's a narrow, but comfortable space. The food was very good, it exceeded both of our expectations. The service was good and our waiter was very friendly. Pasha is worth visiting.

Each time we visit New York City, this is our first choice to dine. Price is very reasonable and everything in the menu is delicious. We always have a couple of appetizer. Exceptionally good ones are Tarama, Mucver and Patlican salatasi. Among the entree, we like Tavuk Adana best. This time we tried stuffed chicken breast and marvelous. Their prefix... More

We tried this restaurant recently and won't go back; there are a number of excellent Turkish restaurants in New York City. The stuffed grape leaves were absolutely superb. Salmon on a bed of spinach was overcooked and dried out. Pulled lamb was served on a bed of eggplant accompanied by a light tomato sauce and dilled yogurt. The lamb was... More

I have been here twice and both times I was under impressed. The food is very bland. The staff is reasonably attentive.

I had the fish special, which was quite ordinary. Nothing bad about it, but the preparation was nothing compelling or interesting. A stuffed chicken entree was good, but again, rather ordinary. Service was good and professional.

We've been dining at Pasha's for years and their quality has been consistent. Friendly service and sumptuous dishes. Our favorites are the braised lamb (Istim Kebab) and the baby lamb cutlets on eggplant purée (Hunkar Begendi). Arugula salad and stuffed apricots for dessert are delicious too. We prefer the back room with the skylights-- more space for our family. The... More

It was a beautiful night and we could have chosen to eat outdoors. The friends that I was with chose to eat indoors. If you go, select the back room as it has skylights and is not as dark as the front room. The food was presented nicely and prepared as I requested. I ordered lamb chops rare, and that... More

I wrote about this restaurant four years ago, and it only got better. A platter of dips, meat dolmas, eggplant, and everything lamb, especially lamb on mashed eggplant bed. Turkish wine Syrah Sevilen was excellent, on par with best syrah from Washington state. Nice quiet atmosphere, unobtrusive service, and moderate prices.

Good food. Good manti (dumplings in yogurt sauce). Good kebabs. Good bread and dips. White table cloth - weird 90's fancy restaurant ambience which doesn't quite match the menu or wine list. But good nonetheless.

With its deep red walls and skylight dining room, Pasha is one of the best Turkish restaurants in North America. Anyone who wants to take a "magical carpet ride" to Istanbul in a very elegant and comfortable ambience and warm and friendly service should visit Pasha.
