Smoked eggplant mixed with mashed garlic and roasted red pepper
Mashed chickpeas & tahini seasoned with garlic
Excellent food. Quiet. Reasonably priced. A gem. Like eating at a friend's house.
Great restaurant with beautifully cooked food
Had a great meal. This was a real find for this area.
Food was amazing. Service was very good even amazing as well. Its byob, no service if beer or wine, which if I read more reviews I probably would have known going in. Definitely a 5 stars
Waiters were a bid gruff and seemed in a hurry to get us moving along even though we were there for barely an hour.
We were here on Valentines night. Wish we knew there was no liquor but you could bring your own wine. Candles at the table were a nice touch, but the tables were too crammed together. Food was very good. They also gave us yummy warm bread before our meal so we ended taking some food home.
the food was very good, and plentiful. In fact, could have shared a main course plus a mezze plate instead of two main dishes. The restaurant does not have a beer and wine license, so need to BYOB-- but there is no corkage fee, so makes this an affordable option for dinner in a high-price neighborhood of Manhattan.
Perfect for a group
Adana kabobs were not good. They got it completely wrong
Excellent food and service
As always good food and service; very reasonable prices especially for the area and best of all and a real money save =
NYC is the world capital for over very high price Wine!!!!!
So this pace is then a bargain.
Food was a bit salty and dry end. Nice servers, ambiance and lively. If you're not too picky with taste this is a nice place to go to. Food is average.
Definitely recommend!! Loved the food and the service was spectacular - very attentive and fast.
Delicious food and excellent staff. Reminded me of my time in Istanbul.
Food was incredible
never disappoints though none of the waiters who recognized me for years are there any more - miss them - my only quiblle is that i hadn't had lunch and asked if i could have some of the delicious bread and olive oil while i waited for my friend who is always a little late - they refused two or three times and said it couldn't be served until we had ordered which i think is ridiculous - did they think i was goign to eat the bread then get up and walk out? fortunately, the lady at the next table who had been given a whole bag of the bread to take back to Florida gave me a piece of hers!
The restaurant does not have a liquor license but you are welcome to BYOB of wine.
ABA was a great option for pre-theatre dinner. Food was good. Service was attentive without being overbearing.
We had a terrific dinner there before the opera. Turkish meatballs for me, stuffed cabbage leaves for my wife. Both excellent and served promptly. The accompanying rice was subtly flavored. The rice pudding for dessert was the best I've ever had. The service was friendly and attentive from a staff that appeared to be family. Altogether a very plesant experience, just as it was a year ago, when we were last there.
Food was absolutely delicious. Great menu will accommodate vegan, vegetarian, meat lovers. My group had them all. I had the lamb kebab - lamb was tender, wonderfully seasoned, perfectly cooked - just great. Everyone in my party had the same experience with their varied choices for dinner - everyone loved it. Very moderately priced. It's a "BYOB" place - you bring your own wine/beer. I always like "BYOB" places - I get to bring the exact bottle of wine I like and I get to purchase it at a liquor store where it is much less expensive. And thank you, ABA Restaurant, you don't even charge a corkage fee.
All in all, this was an excellent experience. I am sure to come back.
Absolutely delicious BYOB place open till 1100pm near the theaters with excellent dessert and Turkish coffee to finish. We will definitely be back!
This restaurant was a true find. From the staff to the diners the atmosphere was happy, relaxed and welcoming. The food was excellent - the fish cooked to perfection, the appetizers were delicious and the warm pide bread was a meal in its own right.
Very good food and excellent service therefore for the prices you should offer a free gift for all young customers!
BYOB is a great addition to the very good food
Great family meal!
Terrific Authentic Turkish food. Staff is very friendly. Prices are reasonable for NYC.
A great pre theatre/concert place... good food at reasonable prices... but best of all B Y O B! This is a major $$$ saver (since the price of wine in restaurants this past year plus was RISEN SO MUCH).
ABA is a real neighborhood gem, though I've been known to drive from Westchester just to have their lamb shish Ali Nazik. Very casual, outstanding & authentic Turkish food, pretty quick and attentive service.
Just ok. Nothing special. Resting on past glory perhaps.
Bring your own bottle service
The tables are close together and the noise level from other conversations was high but the food was delicious! Looking forward to going back.
love the lamb adana as usual - thought the zuchhini pancakes and the eggplant salad were not as good as in the past - think the prices may have gone up but that mayb e my imagination - think the service was a little more rushed and less pleasant than usual but it was Friday night ...but still one of my favorites - love that you can bring your own wine - and will go back soon I hope
A good place for pre theatre especially Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall. The BHOB only adds to the good food - and reasonable prices. do make a reservation
Great food selection and service. We ordered several appetizers to share and two entrees which was more than enough food. The only thing I would advise future visitors about is that it’s a byob. We weren’t aware of this and therefore missed out on the wine with dinner we were looking forward to.
Friendly and attentive staff working on unison. Food hot and fast, great portions too! Delicious homemade bread. Don't forget the kanafeh for dessert!
Delicious Turkish food!! Best eggplant salad I've ever had! The branzino also excellent! Very friendly and laid back place for really delicious and authentic Turkish food! Highly recommend!
We ordered lamb chops and Chicken yogurt Khebab. Affordable price and excellent taste. Lamb chops is very tasty and juicy.
