A word from Troya Clement
Troya was known as llios or llion, a name which can be found in the epic poem, where the poet immortalized the city through mythological characters like King Priam, Hector, Paris and beautiful Helen. For centuries, this story was regarded as only myth until the ruins of the city were found in western Turkey in the mid-19th century.

At Troya, we strive to create modern Turkish cuisine with south Mediterranean influences that celebrate this glorious history. We invite you to visit us and experience our creations with one of the city's most eclectic wine list and Troya's relaxed dining room.

    Good restaurant, quality food. Fried brussel sprouts a stand-out. Miserable parking on the weekends. Very frustrating, so avoid Friday/Saturday nights unless you enjoy driving the neighborhood for half hour to find a spot. Or take the bus.

    It's easy to find good places to eat in San Francisco, so conventioneers often don't leave the Union Square area. This part of Inner Richmond, however, is worth adventuring outside of the main convention drag. Several of the dishes had interesting taste combinations and the wait staff was very helpful in every possible way (getting us a cab home, etc.) If you want to find a place frequented by locals rather than visitors, this neighborhood is a great place to look and Troya is certainly an excellent option.

    Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with comfortable seating in an open floor plan with good of views of passersby on Clement, friendly attentive service, and delicious Turkish food. The spicy Brussels sprout appetizer/mezes was a perfectly crunchy, salted and moderately spicy treat. The arugula salad stood out for its unique mix of pomegranate seeds, sumac, cheese and delicate dressing. Waiter was very helpful choosing a Turkish wine to accompany our meal.

    The food at Troya's is consistently very good, with light versions of the Near Eastern cuisine of Turkey. We miss the lamb moussaka, one of the best we have had anywhere, but we understand how menus have to rotate dishes from time to time. We brought a couple who adored it. Most of our dishes were vegetarian and well prepared, with mixtures of spices that always work. Recommended without reservations (but get reservations on weekends; it does fill up).

    Got seated early before the crowd arrived. Recommend that. Appetizers were mostly fried and worth it if it was good but cauliflower was a failure and left most of it on the plate. I ordered the lamb skewers and was very happy. My table partners ordered the vegetarian moussaka and the sandwich they are famous for that is cut up in rounds and they were not that good. I tasted both. Local beers great as was imports. Reasonably priced if you don't over order on the appetizers and skip dessert. Probably better restaurants for this type of food. Noisy, loud and seats too close if you arrive after 7pm.

    It was my first time here, and I went mainly because I just moved into the neighborhood and wanted something I could walk to. The Brussel's sprouts are awesome. The haloumi is good. The mousakka is good. That's all I had. Good neighborhood spot, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

    We had a wonderful server who provided a lot of accurate information about the food and what was in it, the spices, texture, flavors etc...we started with the pita bread and spreads appetizer (three wonderful items of hummus, thick yogurt and a delicious red dish i cant remember the name of) then the roasted cauliflower that was to die for and we each had a kabob, mine was super moist chicken and hers was lamb. We loved every single bite and would go back again in a ny minute.

    This meal was awesome. Recommend the Brussels sprouts, grilled haloumi, sailors delight beef stew, and lamb behti. They serve a decent beer list. We had the Efes Dark from Turkey and Speakeasy Prohibition. The service was friendly and not very slow, kept coming back to see if we made up our mind and didn't hurry us either. Nice to have this restaurant in our neighborhood. What gave the whole meal an extra star for us was the exotic spices that are only in Turkish food that makes this restaurant stand out from the rest of the meals we can get around there. Their chefs are well-trained and the recipes use the spices to the fullest to bring out the maximum Turkish flavors. We'll be back often!

    We love Turkish food! We'd been to Turkey, tried many Turkish eateries in different countries,and last week driving through this SF neighborhood thought we were in luck running across the Troya.Turned out, it was not our lucky day.We ordered soup (split pea) of the day - it was watery, the chicken kebab came overcooked and very dry, with small amount of chickpeas on the bottom of the plate. Sardines were promised to be served with green salad -i only got couple of wilted leaves.Pitta chips were served dry with no oil or hummus accompaniment.We informed our server that we were in a hurry at the very beginning- it did not help!The wait was long even for a cup of soup (which obviously was not made to order), and after it for our main dishes.

    I absolutely love Troya! Although parking in this neighborhood can be a bit of a pain, I think it's worth a trip out to the Inner Richmond to eat here. The food is so balanced and delicious, but never leaves you feeling heavy. The service is so attentive but not pushy, and everything comes to your table sizzling hot with minimal wait. Troya is an absolute gem!

    We used to go once a month to Troya however we won't be going back. The owners brought on a new chef; cut back on the portions that they normally give you; they've cut back on everything but still charge you the same; the food tastes more bland. We won't be going back. Sad.

    There's no "Wow" factor but not bad either. The portions were on the small side whether it be appetizer or entrée. We had two appetizers of crispy brussel sprouts and zucchini cakes which were tasty but small. Then had the yellowtail kabobs and lamb kabobs followed by baklava for dessert. Must admit the baklava was delicious though. However, we left there still hungry. Service was spotty probably due to us using a voucher. It's a definite maybe for me.

    I've been to this restaurant several times before and really enjoy the grilled sardines, the beat salad and this time we had the Yakut (?) Turkish wine and really enjoyed that. They discontinued the lamb chops so had a lamb type stew and the lamb kebabs on a bed of chickpeas. Everything was tasty but the stew was tepid in temperature. I also remember that issue on another occasion with a similar type dish. We needed to order something to offset the flavors so ordered the cucumber salad which was delicious as contrast to everything else. The service is usually so friendly and warm, but perhaps just after the holidays we are all a little tired or with less energy. But no big complaints there. Overall delicious flavors!

    The staff is friendly and helpful, the ambiance is nice, and the food is very good at Troya Clement. I have eaten there a number of times, and the quality of the food is consistently excellent and reasonably priced, although the menu is rather limited. I have special dietary needs (I can't eat gluten or nuts) and the staff has always been accommodating. I especially enjoy the grilled halloumi appetizer and the marinated chicken kebab. And for dessert, the chocolate pot de creme is fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant.

    I was looking forward to Troyat because one of my favorite places is Turkish Kitchen in Berkeley. Troya seemed more "upscale" , but as it turned out, the food left a lot to be desired. The beyti was hard. Not sure why, but the plate arrived piping hot to the touch, while the food on the plate was just luke-warm. Was the beyti prepared in advance? or even worse - frozen and reheated? The chicken kababs and the mousakka were just ok. The chicken cuvec was delicious, creative and very well prepared. The prices were a bit high and the servings small . The service was great and the people working there were very friendly, but I think the next time I want turkish food, I will head over to Berkeley.

    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).
