Welcome 2021 in your heated private booth with an amazing dinner. We'll have prix fixe and regular menu until 10 pm.
Food is fantastic, and the amount of seating makes this place a great destination at all times!
great dependable food as always.
service was impeccable with great attention.
one thing that could improve is the insistence on one main course per person. if a group is ordering enough appetizers to make up for the main course prices, this should be flexible somewhat specially when dietary limitations are considered.
Went for lunch on a beautiful fall day, dine outdoors. Nicely spaced and did not rush. Had the prefixed - appetizer, salad, entree and dessert - great combination and delicious.
Best Turkish food I have had outside of Istanbul!
Food was outstanding. Loved the dips and salads. Falafel was delicious.
We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent. I had beef kebab it was delicious. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food.We will definitely come back to try the rest of the dishes.
Excellent Food! While the ambiance outside is certainly not indicative of the rest of the establishment, we had great service and overall a lovely experience.
This is a top choice place to eat delicious food, have great service at a reasonable price. We loved the zucchini pancakes, eggplant with peppers, green salad and grilled chicken kabobs. The portions are generous and the bread is also delicious and served warm!
Food is tasteless - no spices no salt - large portions, as the waiter said American sizes. Well it’s also American flavors I guess certainly not Turkish. I thought it was terrible and the service was mediocre at best. I took half the food home because I didn’t wanna waste it and figured I’d give it to the dog. Why would anyone serve such giant portions? It’s such a waste.
Attentive but not overly so service. Delicious dips (mezzanine trio) , and Turka salad. Great mains: lamb shank and chicken thighs for our table. Wine is pricey. Be sure to ask for the $12 cab or they’ll give you the $16 one.
We sat outdoors which was lovely . Bathroom is down a flight of stairs. Recommend !!!
Branzino was excellent. We had a surly server who made everything we asked for was an imposition.
Dined outside. Very pleasant.
Good food, great service, good vibe! Highly recommend
Wonderful family owned restaurant! The food is amazing!
One of my favorite places in NY!
My friend and I had the lunch special and enjoyed it very much. Portions were tasty and large and service was fine. But we sat outside, which was nice but very noisy being right out on the street. We will come back again soon for lunch or dinner.
A/C was not working well and several things from the menu were not available. This place has alway been excellent in the past and I hope they overcome some of these issues.
Delicious Turkish Food. Outside seating nice set up. Large portions. We shared Mezze trio, feta cigars, spicy cigars. Mains- lamb shank, lamb shish kabob, branzino. Too full for desert but they looked yummy.
Will be back
I have been eating at Ala Turka ever since it opened, and before that when it was on the next block north. I always order Hunkar Begendi, my favorite. Last night it was not only seriously overpriced (about eight dollars more than it used to be) but the meat was seriously underdone and tough. Your kitchen is no longer what it was before the pandemic and $11 for a tiny glass of Raki is outrageous. I will start looking for another place in the neighborhood if things don;t improve radically and very soon. I understand that you have had financial trouble because of the pandemic. So has everyone else, and when you jack up your prices to the extent you have, it simply alienates old customers like me. Coupled with a marked decrease in the quality of the cooking, it's a bad recipe.
The food and service was great and appreciated the outdoor seating.
Good service and nicely presented food. All 4 dishes, fish, lamb , chicken and beef were fair, nothing great but not bad.
Excellent service. Special thanks to Umut.
Great food, I've been here a few times as I live near by and love it each time. Recently took a few members of my family with me and we found a piece of a steel scouring pad in our calamari. I was shocked that all the waiter did was take it away and bring us out a new calamari plate (with much less calamari on it). As I am not one to make a scene I continued my night, but next time I advise to at LEAST apologize and remove item from the customers bill. Especially in todays times, cleanliness is extremely important and finding a piece of steel in ones mouth is very unsettling. I expected more A La Turka.
Always reliable. Delicious hot bread to complement the fresh A La Turka salad. Filet mignon super tender and tasty
Unfriendly wait staff. Had to ask for ice three times. Had to ask the order twice had to ask for check two times. Nobody came to check to see if everything was OK. Really not a pleasant experience and I won’t be back
The feta chees was the BEST!!!!
Love A La Turka. Especially the octopus! Shepherd salad and cacik is great as well. Friend had the special fish in parchment and enjoyed that as well. Went there twice last week since I was just back in town after 2 year absence. Will probably go again this week...
I had to return w friends for a second bday dinner- that’s how much I enjoyed it. Thank you Sam and Oyku and rest of staff for a great night. I suggest ordering and sharing a few apps and salad and sharing before main cours. Evetything was delicious and fresh!
Very good value and all the choices our party of 3 were excellent.
Turka has good food and good outdoor seating
I made a reservation for 8 people outside. I picked this place because it's convenient to the Q train stop on 72nd/2nd Ave. We had the perfect table as far away from 2nd Ave as possible, as I had requested. The food is reasonably priced and well prepared. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient. My friends thanked me for picking this place to have our first get-together in a long time.
Celebrated my birthday and the staff made a big celebration w sparklers a singing, very fun! Food is always delicious and ample portions, couldn’t finish. Returning next week w different friends!
Delish as always!!
The stuffed chicken is the best.
Excellent eggplant appetizers. Very ample portions. Kebabs good.
It was a birthday and we were well taken care of! Excellent!
This is our regular go to for in house dining and take out and food has always been great.
Disappointed - however we were 7 people including 1 ten year old. we ordered 4 appetizers and 4 main courses but the waiter told us next time on fri/sat we need to order 7 main courses too. that seems unreasonable. understand if we didnt order any appetizers.
Service was slow but that seems to be the trend due to lack of staff accross NYC restaurants
Kebab were not the best.
Lovely food and great staff. Had a wonderful evening, will definitely go back again.
