“Turkish Cuisine in Mt. Sinai”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We've always dined at local Greek restaurants when in the mood for "Mediterranean." Now instead we head straight for Mavi for Turkish Mediterranean. The salads are more interesting, and we love sharing the delicious Mavi Delight For 2 appetizer which includes babagonoush and white bean salad among others.
We've dined in the small, but bright and contemporary Mavi dining room and have enjoyed the fine food along with the good service and nice presentations.
However, we have also liked taking out and have relished the Kofte Plate (lamb patties) Calamari, Lamb Adama Kebab and Shrimp Shish Kebab on several occasions.
This restaurant is a little gem, and we're hoping it will grow into a larger space.

“Our new go-to restaurant”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

It took us a long time to finally come around and try this place, since it used to be the long-time infamous deli. But we were sold after my first meal, and have returned many times. Flavorful food, no matter what you order. My favorite is still the Kofta plate--spiced ground meat, with both rice and bulgur wheat, the tastiest roasted vegetables you've ever had, and always with a nice long hot pepper to heat up the meal. I know it's not for everyone, but I like the yogurt drink to go with it. Desserts seem to be baked on site, and the Turkish coffee is to die for. Just don't order the coffee if you aren't planning on being up for 12 hours bc it's very potent. Service is great, bc the owners seem to try to meet everyone who comes in.

“A welcome addition to Mt. Sinai”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

A revamped premises that now look very welcoming and pleasant. The Owner is even more welcoming and helpful. A very good Menu. Food is very tasty and flavorful. Great for casual dining.
Service was impeccable. Great value for money. You take your own liquor as there is no bar, which is wonderful.
Best flaffels. Must be home made!
Portions are very good. They do not appear to be mean in anyway:)
The only criticism I have is that the Spinach pie I had ordered must have been micro waived to heat it.. pity! Would have liked it crispy. Filo pastry is nice if its crispy-right?
We were for friends who enjoyed the evening dinning very much..Can't wait to go back!
