About

Join us at Bistro Turkuaz for an evening of authentic Turkish food!



From its roots in Central Asia, the Turkish cuisine became rich and varied, a reflection of the journey to Asia Minor and the great expanse of the Ottoman Empire. At our bistro, you will experience a flavorful culinary tradition with elements of Greek, Persian, and Middle Eastern dishes.



Bistro Turkuaz also tells the story of a valuable Persian gem that was traded in the bazaars of Turkey in the 16th Century and then sold to Europeans by Venetian merchants. The French mistakenly named this blue-green gem turquoise, meaning Turkish.



We invite you to share the colorful history and flavors of Turkish food with your friends and family in the warm atmosphere of the Bistro Turkuaz.

THE most amazing lamb I've ever had! I barely had to cut my bites with a fork! The owner, chef and staff made my surprise party perfect. The baked feta and warm dolma were simply divine, served with warm pita bread and garlic yogurt sauce. This blend of Turkish and Italian cuisine is truly a Seattle gem! Perfect for reservations, drop in or dine out. The desserts are heavenly and the Turkish wine tops it all off. Perfect for an intimate evening with friends. Make reservations to ensure you treat yourself to this Seattle/Madrona gem! Ciao! Go Hawks!

A truly great find. Some of the most exquisitely prepared Mediterranean/Turkish cuisine I have eaten, and that includes a couple trips to that region! Fresh, fresh ingredients,perfect suite of spices, Meat super tender and flavorful, wonderfully fresh and distinct flavors in side dishes as well as main meal. Excellent wine selection. This place is a true Madrona gem!

This was my second time in 10 days dining here at Bistro Turkuaz!
I met some friends here, this being there first time and they loved it!
The food again was amazing and delicious. The service was exceptional ( the owner waited on us and helped cook our dinner) her cousin Vinny was in the back along with another cousin and her niece was serving dinner and greeting people at the door. This place is sooo worth it!

This place!
What a beautiful, romantic, delicious place!
The food is fabulous, the owner made us a lamb and pasta dish that was to die for. The Turkish wine is so delicious and went with every item brought to our table. The music is perfect. The appetizer humus was so smooth and lemony, the baklava was the best I've had and the cappuccino gelato with the Turkish sour cherry jam and fresh mint is amazing!
This is a place to be.

The food was absolutely delicious and authentic. We loved the dolmas. Service was extremely friendly, however the timing of food and check-out on the slow side.

It was our first time and it hopefully won't be our last. The roasted red pepper spread and pita was spectacular as an appetizer. The trio of kebabs (chicken, kofte, lamb) was a superb choice with half tabouli, half rice the sides. The baklava was also outstanding, not too sweet. It paired well with some hot Turkish-style tea and honey. We enjoyed the very friendly and personal service amid cute ambiance. What a great neighborhood gem!
