    We have dined here on many occasions and have never had a bad meal. Service was good. Our out of town guests raved about the food. My only criticism is their wine list. Not much variety by the glass.

    Nice service, excellent food. It is a pity that the restaurant removed the 4th “wall”, leaving us too cold, despite the heaters, and with less of a sense of protection from the elements prematurely. While the waiter agreed to wear a mask, he did so partially only

    Great food but service was bad! That were rushing us to eat and leave. The waitress was teaching new employee while serving us. She didn’t ask if we are fine with that or not. Then we were still eating appetizer she brought us main dish. I asked she didn’t rush but she didn’t care. Food was great by the way!

    Second visit with friends to this excellent neighborhood restaurant on the UES. Fresh ingredients, delicious authentic Turkish dishes, warm, welcoming, and attentive service with a dash of humor. The outside shed is an ideal location for ventilation and spacing during the lingering pandemic. Menus are provided via QR codes for a more sanitary and personal option. Try the wonderful Turkish wines, as well! Cannot recommend highly enough.
