Fine food, service and great value
Been here twice. The food is fine, with some unusual entries. The service is very good. And if you go for the pre-theater dinner, it's quite a bargain, especially in the area - walking distance to Lincoln Center. Very good pre-perforamnce deal.

This is one of my old favorites.
This is one of my old favorites. that I go to regularly. Although the Monti dumplings and shepherd salad were escellent as ever, the grill fish arrived taking fried and way too salty. I was to embroiled in my friends' conversation to say anyting but will try again and give feedback if it is the same. At times the music as intrusive....like drums.

We love Pasha. If you've
We love Pasha. If you've never had the chicken gorsu(I think that's what it's called), stuffed chicken, it is fabulous. The pre-theater dinner is great value and delicious food. And, if it isn't sold out when you get there, you MUST have manti which is Turkish-style meat ravioli with a yogurt sauce. Fabulous. also, if you are a wine drinker, try Turkish Yakut--delicious.

We eat at Pashas at least
We eat at Pashas at least once a month when we attend performances at Lincoln Center. The food is always wonderful; the service ensures our timely arrival at the performance and Pasha even offers a discount to Lincoln Center ticket holders. Whether dining alone or with a group, it is always a delightful experince.

Pasha for a lovely Turkish ambience
We had excellent sigaros, a lovely Riesling, delicious braised lamb and a very nice trout.

Good food. Nice servers. Great place to take out-of-towners. We were late for our reservation, but the restaurant was nice about it.

We love this restaurant. Our only complaint was that they were a little too fast in trying to clear our dishes though the restaurant was not busy.

What a nice surprise. The reviews said that the decor is a bit dated, which is true, but it reflects an old European style, which is comfy. The wait staff was really attentive to us and went above waiting standards (perhaps because they realized that we were appreciate more adventurous Turkish dishes...). The dumplings appetizer is surprisingly delicious! We also ordered two different types of lamb, both of which were grilled to perfection. We will definitely return and recommend this place highly.

Dinner at Pasha
What a wonderful neighborhood find. Service is attentive and friendly from the moment you enter. The decor is simple and soothing. The food is just excellent. Each dish we ordered, from the special salad to the stuffed grape leaves and stuffed chicken, had a unique flavor. I'm only sorry we didn't order dessert as I'm sure that it too would win raves. An all-around civilized and delicious experience.

Terrific food, price atmosphere
We enjoy Turkish food at Pasha. Great for pre Lincoln Center dining or relaxing evening. Love poached apricot dessert.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Lincoln Center
Lovely, well-appointed sky-lit dining room in back.
Wait staff very attentive.
Food was very good - Mezze Platter very fresh & delicious, Calamare were the lightest I've ever had, Lamb Shank was awesome. Desserts were underwhelming but not really my thing anyway.

Hidden neighborhood gem!
I've lived in the UWS for 6 years and never knew this restaurant! It's romantic, cozy and the food is delicious. The wait staff are very attentive as well!

A great neighborhood place
Pasha never disappoints. It's a quiet alternative to overly noisy restaurants in the area and the food is always fresh and tasty.

An amazing menu
There are so many lovely choices on the menu to make everyone from vegans to full blown carnivores happy.

Great Turkish food at great prices!
I went to Pasha with 3 friends that I hadn't seen in years and we had a fabulous time. We shared three appetizers: hummus, crispy phyllo rolls filled with feta and herbs, and eggplant stuffed with sauteed onions, peppers, and pine nuts. All three were delicious and we actually ordered additional orders of the phyllo rolls and stuffed eggplant. For my main, I had lamb cubes cooked in tomato sauce and served over eggplant puree -- so good! The lamb was tender, but not so much that it was mushy, and the eggplant puree was creamy and smokey. My other friends seemed to enjoy their dishes as well. If you are looking for authentic Turkish cuisine at affordable prices, Pasha is your place!

Great place for Turkish food
Went with a friend & had a bunch of Mezze - the cacik, Shepard salad, Manti, eggplant and octopus - everything was very good & the bread is WONDERFUL. I look forward to going back next time on UWS.

As always, the service is cheerful and impeccable. We were a large group and were very comfortably seated, and the ample portions were very tasty.

Good Turkish Food and Good Service
I would rate this at par with A La Turka on the UES and a notch below Beyoglu. But I still enjoyed the food very much. The grape leaves were not the same as you get in Turkey but its so far the best that I have had in the US. Service was prompt and attentive. Decor could be better. Overall a great experience.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious, easy, welcoming
We sat outside and ordered several appetizers before going to a movie. It was just great--incredible bread to dip . Dummus. Roasted eggplant mixed with lemon, olive oil--so good! Grape leaves with pine nuts, currents, --the leaves were tender and unobtrusive. Also great. All ingredients were super-fresh and tasty.

Great food & service, ok ambiance
Went for early dinner in advance of a show. Food was fabulous, service was friendly and attentive. Pris Fix menu included many of the best menu selections - a great bargain! Decor was nice, but ambiance was not as romantic as we would have liked. Dining room had a lot of sky lights AND lamps were turned on. The effect was that for an early dinner the lighting was way too bright for what we were looking for and more appropriate for family dining. It would have been nice to hear some music, esp. ethnic music, in the background but there was none. Tables were awfully close together. As a result of the closeness and lack of background music, we were unfortunately able to hear every single word uttered by the couple sitting next to us.

Pasha always reliable
We treated a friend to Pasha--he was delighted and so were we. The food was excellent, the drinks were good and the service was attentive. We all left with smiles!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A reliable friend!
We took out of town friends to Pasha and-- no surprise--they were delighted. They were skeptical about Turkish food, and she is vegetarian; but, they raved about it the next day. We have taken other friends there and they all have been happy.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Manti, yoghurt soup, octopus done to perfection. Family run with attentive staff. Perfect for before a Lincoln
Oln Center performance!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
warm and welcoming
We have always enjoyed this restaurant, which is inviting and comfortable. There are a very limited number of tables outside, but it is very pleasant in good weather, since it is quiet on the side street. Service is always attentive and cordial. The large chopped salad is generous when divided in half and refreshing. The fish on special was tasty but the chicken, which is usually good, was a bit dry. The atmosphere is appealing and colorful and the tables are spaced enough so that conversation is possible. Prices are reasonable for Manhattan.

Great choice near Lincoln Center
In an area where it's easy to spend a lot a get a little, Pasha stands out with a combination of ambience, cuisine, warm welcome, and reasonable prices. Its prix fixe menu, available from 5 to 7, offers a selection of interesting and well-prepared dishes. Pick your table well and you'll have no trouble having a conversation. Definitely recommended,
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A quiet osasis where price can't be
The value is terrific here. First, it is quiet, and the ambiance is wonderful - carpeting, soft lighting & a feeling of warmth. The service is very efficient - almost too quick. The food is ample and tasty although the salmon is a bit overcooked. The apricot desert is outstanding. I will certainly go back and have already recommended it to friends.

The food was good. The service
The food was good. The service was attentive and prompt. A good choice for dining before Lincoln Center events, especially if you enjoy Turkish cuisine.

No turkey at this Lincoln
No turkey at this Lincoln Center Turkish, but really good lamb, chicken and veggie dishes, especially imam bayaldi (eggplant, et. al.
appetizer) and etli yaprak sarmosa (lamb stuffed grape leaves with mint yogurt).

I like eating in the small room at the front of the restaurant. Octopus salad is exceptional. Close to Lincoln Center which makes it handy if you are seeing a performance
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went there for the prix-fixe menu from 5-7 PM.
Excellent service and delicious food. The three courses were certainly a great value.
Highly recommend the experience.

Delicious Turkish food
We had the prix fixe dinner and thought it was an excellent value. Very good food, nice selection, attentive service, and reasonable price.

One of my favorite Westside places
Love the food at Pasha. We arrived almost 15 minutes late for our reservation but only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated & this on a busy Saturday evening. Started with the Shepard salad with feta, and then had the octopus salad as my main course. Also tried a special yogurt mint dish that made a great accompaniment to the rest of the meal. My dining partner had the chicken breast stuffed with rice, pistachio and currants which looked and smelled wonderful. She said it was great and took home half the dish for dinner later in week. Service is good, the bread is wonderful.

Excellent Neighborhood Turkish Gem
My wife and I eat here regularly. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is excellent.
This most recent visit I brought a colleague who was visiting from California and we had a business dinner. We ate early and, to my delight, qualified for the early bird prix fixe, which has all of my favorite dishes - the Coban salad and the Yogurtlu Kebab. We started with a glass of traditional Raki. Delicious and moderately priced.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tasty food, attentive waiters and lovely Turkish ambiance down to the details of tapestries and tiles.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food
Have been to Pasha a few times. Always a good experience. Turkish food with a twist is the best way to describe it. They have a pre fix dinner from 5-7 (pre theatre). Fun for groups bc the appetizers are fantastic and good for sharing.
The ambiance is average- I think the dining room can use a little renovation or maybe more of an authentic Turkish feel would give it more of a wow factor. But we come here for a great satisfying meal. definitely worth trying out.
