Description: On the beautiful Mediterranean coast lies a city on the southwestern side of Turkey. It is the capital city of Antalya province. Situated on coastal cliffs, Antalya is surrounded by mountains. It is known as one of the most beautiful places in the world...This is where Antalia Restaurant`s inspiration is rooted. AnTalia Restaurant serves authentic Turkish dishes in the midtown area. The pre-theater crowd loves there Prix-Fixe menu that serves 3 course meals for only 19.95. This lovely restaurant serves its guests in two floors. Second floor is a great way to have a private party or dine quietly.

Right next door to our hotel, this restaurant looks unimpressive at the front, but go right through to the back room: quiet, comfortable; an army of totally responsive, friendly and helpful servers; and the food -- sublime: we loved the Esme (very spicy), spinach/yogurt, and red lentil cake appetizers; the Dorado fish was rich and delicious. One of us had a Turkish beer (great) the other a dry white Turkish wine (REALLY dry). Our meal was totally satisfying. You can't go wrong. A woman sitting at the table next to us, after overhearing our satisfied sighs, told us she's a regular....based on her testimony, you can't go wrong here.

Recommended by a Brooklyn native, this was a great return to Turkish culture. We had the Doner (the Turkish version of Gyros), manti (pasta stuffed with ground beef served in a yogurt sauce) and zucchini cakes. Suggest spitting orders! Staff is Turkish and most gracious.

Arriving in NYC, needing lunch, we stumbled on this Turkish restaurant near our hotel. Had our last lunch here as well and it wasn't just the proximity to our hotel that brought us back. The delicious eggplant dishes and prompt service were the draw. Don't let the signage and dowdy front room deter you, the back dining room is cozy and filled with locals.

We were going to see "Beautiful" at the Sondheim Theatre and were looking for a non-touristy restaurant. We were very pleased with the food, value and service. We had the prix fixe dinner (appetizer, entre and dessert/coffee/tea) for $25. We all shared the appetizers. Fantastic! Our waiter, Erskine was ever attendant to us. We had the Turkish wine (Angora) and beer. The bread was so fresh and warm. The staff calls the bread pita but it does not look like pita as we know it. It was great with hummus and appetizers. Try the salmon in grape leaves. Amazing! The Turkish meatballs (looked like potato pancakes) and tasted great. The ambiance was ok. It did not have anything that looked Turkish in terms of art on the walls. Frankly, the place does not look like much from the outside. It looks like a typical nondescript midtown type restaurant with the but don't let that fool you. And by the way, go see "Beautiful." We will be back!

Wonderful Mediterranean and Turkish dishes. Friendly and attentive staff. Nothing special by way of ambiance. Service was quite prompt, not surprising as they specialize in pre-theater dining. Stuffed grape leaves were a bit sweet for our taste, but the felafel were quite good and the phyllo wrapped feta was super. The gyro platter was well spiced and the beef and lamb adana was outstanding. I just wish some vegetable came with it. Top it off with some strong Turkish coffee and you've had a real taste of Anatolia and a pleasant evening. About $35/person; $25 for the fixed price menu.
