Big Fan of Troya
I am a big fan of Troya. The food is delicious, the servers are fantastic, prices are reasonable and the restaurant has a very cozy atmosphere. It is one of the restaurants that makes San Francisco such a great eating experience. No celebrity TV chef required, just go to a neighborhood restaurant and eat great food.

Delicious food, wonderful service
We walked into Troya on a Saturday evening, and warmly greeted at the front door. We were promptly taken to our table. I liked the casual, modern look of the restaurant. It was moderately crowded at 6:30pm, but by the time our entrees arrived, the place was packed! Clearly, this is a popular restaurant. Our servers were friendly and attentive, and the timing between our appetizers, entrees, and dessert was perfect. I ordered the vegetarian moussaka, while my husband ordered the lamb kebabs. My husband said that these were the most flavorful kebabs. We shared dessert, which was called Nightingale's Nest Baklava. It is a winner -- not too sweet, and satisfying. I enjoyed this restaurant and would like to come back.

Good menu variety. Recommend
Good menu variety. Recommend trying appetizers too - our flat bread (looks like small pizza wedges)didn't disappoint and would order again.

You will be able to find cheaper
You will be able to find cheaper Turkish food in the city, but the attentive service and thoughtfully created plates are worth the price it you want to splurge.

Always a winner. Have never
Always a winner. Have never had a bad experience here. The only thing is, the menu never changes. They would do well to offer one or 2 specials from time to time. And, it would be nice to offer a vegetarian kebab - tofu and grilled veggies maybe? However, what they DO serve is great.

Simple unvarying healthy delicious
Simple unvarying healthy delicious mediterranean/Turkish menu (eggplant salad is the best), totally unpretentious, short wine list, no "specials", excellent prices, quick friendly service. We've been going there for years and wondered why no-one else much went - we wondered how they would survive. But in the past year, although nothing changed, it's been jammed in the evenings, have to book early, but nothing has changed!

Food was fantastic, but mostly ordered small plate so cannot speak for main dishes. Lamb kebabs were by far the best dish we had. Pita and dips are great as well.

Stellar Turkish Delights
Some of the most well prepared food, served in an upscale casual and cozy setting. Staff is unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable. The hummus is incredible, as are any of the mezes; all are a sure thing. The wine list is fine, but made better by the recommendations of the staff. The lamb is simply outstanding, and this is from someone who normally doesn't care for lamb!

No Fuss Dining
I get so tired of jockeying for a table in the city. Troya is always delicious, well priced, and easy to get a reservation. I love the food, the ambiance, and they have a long happy hour!!

I have been to Troya several times, and although this particular time the food was only average, it is usually very good. Just an aberration, I think. This is a great place for groups: order lots of small plates to share, and everyone enjoys the many tastes.

troya adds class to Clement Strreet
Whenever I want to meet a friend for dinner in inner Richmond, I always think about Troya.

A Delicious Richmond Find
We came at a very busy time. Although we were seated right away, we waited about 15-20 minutes until water arrived. That said, afterwards, everything rolled smoothly and our dinner was fantastic. The fresh salads were fresh, in season, and dressed perfectly. The lamb chops were succulent, cooked just right, and out of this world. Our server recommended an excellent wine to go with our meal. We had a wonderful evening.

We went there for dinner on a weekday when we came to S.F. They have the best Mediterrenean food I've ever tasted. It's pretty expensive, but worth the money, as their food was delicately and well made and absolutely delicious. Service was quick and friendly. It was easy to make reservations, and once we ordered the food came quickly. We will definitely return repeatedly on special occasions.

My friend and I had a wonderful time here. The food was awesome and the service was great! We ordered three dishes between two people and that kept us full.

Fine Mediterranean on Clement Stree
The food is prepared beautifully and is always delicious. Menu has a great variety
including many "V" - vegetarian - options. The Meze menu is especially great because
you can order several small plates which is a meal. Service is very good in all ways.

Clement Street non-Asian restaurant
It's located on the corner of Clement and 5th with a modern decor and comfortable seating. I ordered 2 appetizers, haloumi cheese with beets and fresh greens (the salad dressing was wonderfully lemony) and the grilled sardines, which were filleted over a bed of fresh greens. I was totally satisfied. I ended my lunch with a cup of coffee that had character and was delicious.

Delicious. I love the spreads platter (2-3 can easily share as starter) and the skewers are great too. Haven't had much that isn't
I often bring veggie friends here. The food is good and so is portion size. I also LOVE that they offer a choice between one or two skewers w/a salad. Seems small but it's much appreciated.

My family loves Turkish food -- and the owners of Troya. Together, they make unbeatable pair. Please try!!!

Wonderful Turkish Food
Troya on Clement is a great little place to get a taste of Turkish Cuisine. The Wait Staff are helpful and attentive without being overbearing. The food is delicious, with very good portions for the price. The desserts are great too...I recommend the Chocolate Pot de Creme!

Deliciousness on Clement
It was delicious all the way around. We ordered too much buy it was worth the tight pants. Highly recommend.

Succulent lamb chops
Love the baby lamb chops. Very juicy and tender. Servers are very accomodating.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I have been trolling restaurants on Clement for years, but hadn't ever tried Troya. We went on a Saturday night with our teenaged daughter and her friend, and were impressed with every part of the meal: great appetizers -- spinach pies and falafel -- beautifully arranged and perfectly hot, very well-prepared entrees, and an almost luxurious eggplant salad. We didn't have time to stay for dessert, but will next time. I am half Middle Eastern and have tried many restaurants around the Bay area that represent that part of the world, and this was among the best.

Great for a relaxing evening
First of all, friendly staff. They are patient, professional, and attentive. Your glass is always full (water). You'll find your napkins neatly folded on the table every time upon returning to table. Food is tasty and nicely presented. Will definitely return.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite dish is now only served as a special on Fridays?! We were bummed. However, there are plenty of other fine dishes to choose from and choose we did. The lamb chops are awesome in their bed of rice and veggies (featuring melt in your mouth eggplant) - even if it was a little overcooked (lamb should be a bit red). The falafel was pretty dry. The lentil soup was very good. All in all I haven't had anything I was terribly displeased with, just wish they didn't get rid of their mix and match skewers ($15 for a plate of meat skewers is a bit much in my opinion).

Troya Does it Right
Our dining experience at Troya Clement was wonderful. All of the food was fresh, healthy and flavorful. We chose a South American wine that paired nicely with the grilled ahi tuna kebab. We went on a Thursday night when it wasn't busy, so our noise level rating may not be accurate for weekend dining. Pleasant staff, vegetarian friendly, clean restaurant and romantic yet casual ambiance. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Moderate prices with good ambiance. Menu was a little short and meat heavy for we two pescatarians. The ahi tuna shish kabobs were tasty. We ordered an appetizer that they said was late in coming so they didn't charge us for it. We hadn't even noticed it being late so that has to be commended as amazing service. All in all an enjoyable experience.

Terrific menu, wonderful presentation, lively atmosphere and not too noisy - highly recommend!

We had the pleasure of dining
We had the pleasure of dining at Troya with our friends over the weekend. They have the absolute BEST brussel sprouts (carmelized perfectly) and the most amazing Vegetarian Moussaka I've ever had. I'm not a vegetarian and I didn't miss the lamb at all. The flavors were perfectly blended and everything our table ordered was wonderful.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Superb lamb dishes; even one of our party of 7 who 'hates lamb' and generally is not wild about MidEast cuisine LOVES this restaurant! Service was simply outstanding for our party of 7: attentive, instant, very quick food delivery, yet not 'hoovering'. We came down from Sonoma County to imbibe and out of all the San Francisco restaurants available to try we'd definitely go here again (this was our 2nd time as a group).
