A word from Hanci Turkish Cuisine
We aim to recreate Turkish food as it is found in Turkey, right here in the heart of New York City by combining the freshest of ingredients with recipes that have withstood the taste test of time. As each of our dishes is prepared with special care, our menu is simple; we prefer quality over quantity.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Menu for vegetarians and lamb/chicken lovers. Pleasant, efficient service. Excellent turkish red house wine. Tarama appetizer v. salty. Our 2 different lamb dishes (chops and Iskender kebab) were very good, the vegetarian one (grilled vegetables), uninspired. Very good shepherd salad and lentil soup. Apple tea and turkish coffee very good."

  • "Excellent and very fresh.. The appetizers and dinner were fabulous. The baklava they Served for dessert was soggy and a little stale...but don't let that discourage you. The Rest was first rate."

  • "The food at this place isn't great, but it is good, and the prices are very reasonable. If you're looking for a quick, relatively cheap meal, it's a good pick."

  • "Friendly but not intrusive service. Both the grilled whole bronzini and the chicken (?) dish we had were very well done and with a sensible portion size. Simple, but elegant fare. The wine selection was also simple, but more than adequate for the price. We will definitely return."

  • "Prices are great. Food was delicious. Unpretentious relaxed dining. Much more satisfying than noisy, pricey places. This place is was just perfect, before going to jazz at Lincoln Center ."

  • "This is a reasonable place.... but some of the dishes lack variety .... and the flavors aren't anything to shout about. It's also lacking ambience - too well lit and lacks the vibe and character that you like to have in a restuarant. Having said this, if you're looking for Turkish food, this certainly isn't a bad start."

  • "Was easy to get a reservation after Big Apple Circus. Good food - and Turkish feels a bit exotic.. They were able to accomodate a group of 8 and it was easy to pick out some appetizers that our kids like (7 and 9.)"

  • "I took my sister and aunt to Hanci and we had a bkast. The food was really tasty. We had a couple of starters and one main dish (the Iskandsr Kebab); one of the best that i had. Then after, we decided to get the infamous Kunafe with somr Turkish tea; and that was mesmerizing. The cheese in the Kunafe was so delicious it literally made us speechless. Its a definite place to pay a visit if you happen to be in town. Make a reservation first though, it can be crowded."

  • "I have been to Hanci twice and I have not been disappointed. It is homemade food that is just so good. They have great meat dishes but also vegetarian ones. We also loved the grape leaves. Everything is fresh and well prepared. The desserts are all homemade and just great."

  • "Unfortunately there was a party of about 25 seated in what is a very small restaurant. People shouted to be heard at the end of a very long table. The noise was horrendous. It was hard to talk. The staff is very nice and accommodating and the food was very good. We would try it again and hopefully there will be no big parties when we are there."

  • "And the people are very nice and friendly. We had a very good meal there, and we know the cuisine quite well. Portions sufficient without being to much. Lentil Soup is excellent!"

  • "Dolma and lamb shank were exceptionally delicious. Environment needs renovation--conversations at other tales were amplified by brick wall. Glass front wa glaringly bright at sunset--needs shades or curtains."
