I nearly always eat at Pasha once every time I am in Wellington and this review represents those meals I have eaten there over a period of years.
The food is Turkish in style but there is a good variety and it is not like the small cafes and booths that can be the feature of Turkish establishments. My favourite is a barbeque lamb salad which has never disappointed. They are also flexible and if you want some adjustment to what you order, in my experience this hasnt been a problem.
The staff are pleasant and arrive promptly to take orders. The meal wait is reasonable so if you are heading off somewhere else with time restraints (as I sometimes am, to a show,) it isnt an issue.
It is BYO and a lot of the time I take a bottle but sometimes I order off the drinks menu, as I did this weekend. Wine by the glass is pretty much average price for Wellington (I think I paid $7 for a glass of pinot gris).
Sometimes there is entertainment which I didnt expect and actually would have preferred not to have as I was with friends and we wanted to talk. I think a lot of the diners enjoyed it however. (a belly dancer). In all the times I have gone it was just the once but may happen more at certain times of the year.
The price of mains at the moment is around $25 (some more, some less) and that is adequate. There isnt a large range of desserts but I usually have some Turkish delight and coffee but there are some other treats for the hungry. I believe they have minimum spend equivalent to a main at weekends. ( There are a cheaper range of entrees and breads and dips. - we have eaten some of these too and they were good.)
Being slightly off Cuba Street Pasha somehow has a less frantic feel than some of the places on Cuba sometimes have so it is a good place for talking over a meal.
