    Truva was the one "nice" restaurant we decided to try during our recent visit to downtown Atlanta for Dragon Con. We picked it because my friend and I had traveled together to Turkey two years ago, and thought it'd be fun reminder of our old trip. We were both blown away by the food - it was as if we had suddenly been transported back to Istanbul. Even if the food hadn't been amazing, the ambiance alone was refreshing and soothing after our busy weekend surrounded by congoers. We appreciated that they didn't seem to mind our casual clothes & funny nerd costumes, despite it being a weekend & dinnertime. Upon leaving the restaurant we both immediately decided that it would be THE restaurant we returned to when we came back next year!

    Music too loud for any good group conversation. Belly dancer every 30 minutes. Service adequate though slow and a bit inattentive. Food wonderful. Go when it's slow. In fairness, we went during DragonCon weekend which is pretty busy.

    The lamb was a little dry but everything else was delicious. The server was very nice and good and we enjoyed the belly-dancer. Not sure why but the place was completely empty on a Friday night. I hope they stick around because I liked the food.

    The appetizers were standard: the two eggplant appetizers were too similar to have been ordered together, but everything was tasty. They did a great job on their shish kabob meat, however. Well-seasoned, properly cooked, and nice cuts of meat. That was a pleasant surprise. We were too full for dessert, though.

    My date and I were celebrating her birthday so the choosing fell on me. I wanted a place that would provide a unique dinning and entertainment experience. Truva was the perfect choice for us. She was very pleased from the moment she walked in and all the staff acknowledged her birthday. We were greeted with energy and smiles. The service was great. The belly dancing was an unexpected surprise for my date and the food was fabulous. If you are looking for a different romantic experience ...Give Truva a try!

    We ate here after noticing it on our walk from the subway station to the Hilton Hotel. Act out the menu online, and all sounded very good. We were a party of six, and decided to share three small plates, or appetizers (meze). When the plate arrived all three appetizers were on one plate. We were initially shocked by that portion size. For $17 we received two small grape leaves, and two ice cream scoop sized portions of hummus. We have to ask for extra vegetables to get in the hummus, along with extra bread. Overall the food is very delicious, before the price the portion sizes were not impressive.

    Truva is a nice alternative in downtown Atlanta. I dined there with friends on Valentine's Day when most other places were totally booked. The atmosphere is comfortable and the staff is cordial although a little amateurish. The Turkish food is competently prepared and well presented, but not at the highest standard one finds in the best Turkish restaurants. Every half hour the music volume is turned up and a skilled belly dancer circles the room. Some will like this and some not. I do recommend the place, but it needs some refinement to get a rave review.

    In the heart of Atlanta stands this Turkish restaurant. The menu is average size but covers most all of the cuisine of that region. They even have a belly dancer at night. Service is outstanding, the people are friendly and the food i above average.

    Hate to say anything negative about a restaurant because of a parking issue, but that is the case with Truva - wish they had a 'second' one outside of downtown where traffic and parking would not be a nightmare....however, the manager was EXTREMELY helpful and courteous when we told him we weren't from out of town, we were 'Atlantans' coming for dinner...he offered his parking spot and then told us where to park in the future -so nice- the food was authentic -the music gets loud when the belly dancer performs but so what, that's entertainment....I would suggest they add specific parking instructions on their website due to the fact that 'locals' might not be familiar with the downtown area....otherwise, enjoyed it immensely and will go back

    Really nice place. Lamb was amazing. Dancer provided good entertainment. We had a small issue getting seated but with a convention in town it was not a big problem. I recommend this place for their great Mediterranean menus items. Warning the menus I saw on open table had lower prices than you will find in the restaurant. Maybe $5 or so more. They may just need to update. I will definitely be back.

    and it never fails to impress me with it's wonderful selection of dishes, welcoming environment, and helpful staff. I always enjoy the food. Truva is accommodating to larger groups as well as smaller, and myself and my friends have never been disappointed. I simply love the current location of the second level of a building in Atlanta; it makes me feel like I'm being transported from the hectic bustle of the city to an inviting haven of tasty food and comfortable surroundings.

    I noticed they had a good size outdoor dining area and a buffet (which was not open when we went). My spouse and I went on a Monday night and the crowd was quite thin, but we had a great time. Neat decor, belly dancer comes out several times for entertainment. Music fits the theme and is at a good noise level. Food was good, and service was outstanding.

    We went to Truva as it was late in the evening and we were looking for some place close to out hotel. We checked out Open Table and found Truva and it got good ratings and looked like it would be different than the normal food fare. For the most part the review was correct - the food was good, although our group just had appetizers and drinks; the outdoor patio where we ate was decent although it was right on a main road making it a little busy and quite loud. The most interesting part of the dinner was the belly dancer that came out unexpectedly to dance for us every 30 minutes or so... I'm not an expert, but other patrons were enjoying the show, but for us, it wasn't what we expected or what we were interested in watching at dinner.

    Mediterranean oriented menu. Interior showing its age but clean. Business casual for a relaxed meal. Makes a great alternative to the steak house or traditional white linen upscale restaurant. Featured a live belly dancer which was a fun added touch. Background music when there was no dancer was to loud for casual conversation across the table and we had to request it be turned down. Overall a fun relaxed outing with good flavorful fresh food.

    The food here is fantastic!!! The service was great - even though we went at the same time as they had a large event at the restaurant the service was friendly and at a good pace - not too rushed, and not slow at all even with the large party. The one thing I will note is that they do have a belly dancer in the evenings I think and she does approach each table seperately. I was a little shocked that she even approached a table where there was a family with a young girl of about 10 - which I thought was rather in-appropriate. She was a very good performer, though made me slightly uncomfortable. The noise level is nice at the restaurant except when the belly dancer comes up then the music is quite a bit louder.
