I've been in the area for about a year and find myself at Turcuisine a few times a month. Their sampler appetizer is great to share. Fresh food and great service - I keep coming back.

Joined TurCuisine for their featured Easter Brunch. This is a small neighborhood Turkish cuisine restaurant, that we have enjoyed for their house made DonnerKabob and Turkish specialities. The brunch I was hoping would have some special items just for the Easter table. HOwever it had just 10 or 11 of the popular & usual items from the menu served buffet style, so we were disappointed, nothing new or unique for the Holiday. All nicely prepared and tended by more than efficient and friendly servers.

Delicious food, very nice service
We really enjoy TurCuisine. The ambiance is very pleasant, the service competent and friendly, and food delicious. We have identified several items on the menu that we particularly like although everything we have tried is very good. We really like the hummus, the cheese plate (with three different kinds of cheeses), the yogurtlu kebab -- prepared with different meats -- we usually get the doner and the beef shish. We always have one of the Turkish red wines, again very good. This is a gem, and we highly recommend it to others.

Best LAMB CHOP in NOVA!!!
Had my first LAMB CHOP at Chima's Tysons. Now that TurCuisine comes in handy, I don't need to drive that far. Need to live more just for that LAMB CHOP! Ughh..... Had it for "lunch" and "dinner" today! LG, can't complain. THE BEST!
Love the ambiance, the overall restaurant's design, the RED and contemporary look, as well as the service I had! Been around the area for quite sometime but the name outside didn't catch my attention since the neighboring names are the same red colors.
But the food....MAGNIFICO!!!

Classic Mediterranean cuisine
Relaxed placed with great service. There's even belly dancing on some evenings. Been here several times and the food is always wonderful. The service is wonderful too - they are very attentive. I always get the appetizer sampler, especially for folks new in town.

The food was hot, fresh and flavorful. The service was outstanding; our waitress took the time to explain the menu, allowed us to taste wines before we made a selection and offered recommendations. Our favorite was the tavuk shish.

Iskender doner kebab is the
Iskender doner kebab is the way to go! and the Maze sampler. Baba ghanoush was nicely smokey, and the yogurt sauce was excellent. Turkish wine was tasty and a good touch. Nice to have our table ready when we got there. I like the color theme in the restaurant, though it didn't feel particularly Turkish. I have already recommended it to others!

Always have a great meal here and the frequent diner deal is nice.
Service is perfect and the Turkish coffee is the right ending.

Great Use of Spices
I was pleasantly surprised with the food at TurCuisine, service was a bit slow. I picked it because it wasn't far from Dulles Airport and I had a friend coming into town, and we needed a place for dinner. Everything we had tasted great, I even took an entree home for lunch the next day. The menu has a variety of items, including some that I don't find in the US very often like Lachmacan. This is the closest tasting to what I've had in Turkey. Really well done and a hidden gem. They had a decent beer and drinks list, but the Servers don't know much about the beer or what is on offer.

Good Time Had by All
TurCuisine is a long drive for us, so we don't get there often. But the food is always great and reasonably priced, and different from what I would cook myself. Everyone is friendly and polite, and the servers aren't intrusive as is often the case elsewhere. This time, we also needed a fairly quiet place because one person in our party has a hearing problem. We were able to converse easily. It would have been nice to have decaf coffee available because it was evening, but otherwise, it was a lovely experience.

Tender and fab lamb chops
We usually do lunch here but so glad we did dinner. Finally had their lamb chops.... Three gorgeous, tender, and tasty! Really a star.... Why did we wait so long to try these.
Hubby and i started with the cheese plate.... I do like the grilled halloumi...
Ended with semi sweet turkish coffee and baklava.
This may have been our first dinner there but it wont be the last....

Picked Tur Cuisine at random because we has never eaten in Herndon before. It was a great experience with outstanding and very tasty food as well as an extremely helpful waitress that helped use chose since we hadn't eaten there before.

New Menu is a disppointment.
My wife and I have always enjoyed dinning at TurCusine, but are disappointed with the new menu. Since neither of us are big eaters, we usually order from the small plate menu which is no longer available in the new menu. Also grilled vegetables are no longer included with most of the entrees and have been eliminated as a side order. We hope that the owner will consider our opinion and reinstate the small plate menu and expand the entrees available with grilled vegetables.

Mediterranean gem; great kabobs
TurCuisine offers some great Turkish/Mediterranean dining in a cozy atmosphere. The kabobs are excellent or you can go with a pita pocket approach. Their menu has a number of authentic dishes but don't be afraid to bring the kids. Our daughter has loved this place since she was 6! My personal favorite is the Tavuk Shish (chicken kabob) with the rice. Their hummus appetizer sets the bar for what hummus should taste like - we get it every time.
If you want a special event, go on Friday evenings at around 8pm. They have a belly dancer that performs. (Don't worry about the kids - the performance isn't risque!)
This is one of our favorite places and we recommend it highly.

Don't Judge the Book by its Cover
Located in a strip mall full of moderate to cheap restaurants, a movie theater, etc, so you may not be inclined to give TurCuisine more than a passing glance, but don't let the modest exterior or the minimalist interior fool you. They serve great food here. Everything we had was delicious, and the service was top notch. The items we ordered from the menu were all very well-prepared and delicious, but I also asked about a Turkish dish that was not on the menu, and they prepared it happily and perfectly. Very nice. Modest pricing as well. I will come back.
