We had dinner at Deniz as recommended by a friend, and loved it! We had great cocktails and delicious fresh food with a wide range of choices on the menu. It was the perfect spot for a bite before a performance at BAM. We will return!

We shared two entrees: chicken adana kebab and shrimp kebab. Both were delicious. As another reviewer said, the rice is so flavorful -- soft and fresh. What a lovely dinner before the theater.

Very pleasant in every aspect. Very accessible, with no stairs, space around tables and sturdy chairs - very useful if dining with elderly! Very kind and helpful host helped us to car on exiting. Delicious food and attentive waitstaff. Busy if before a BAM performance but empties out nicely at about 7.30pm. The salmon kabobs are divine, but prefer without the barbecue sauce. Excellent little baklava. Have eaten there numerous times and never been disappointed.

Enjoyed the proximity to BAM and the food was very good. The only negative was the tables were too close together.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant. The waiters were attentive and kind. The portions are plentiful. All I would say is that the hummus, falafel and tahini were all pretty bland.
Overall: fine

Great find near the Barclays. Food was tasty, large portions and affordable. The red wine sangria was also killer. Would definitely return even if I wasn’t seeing a show at Barclay.

The food is very tasty. We had the lamb gyro and it had a lovely rich and delicious flavor. The salad and the rice were both excellent. And definitely get dessert. The baclava is so good. Plus, the waiter was so friendly and helpful it really made it a pleasure. Great place for a relaxed evening.

We tried this place on a suggestion and everything was great. The only complaint was that our server changed halfway through dinner and that cause a tiny bit of confusion, but the baklava more than made up for it!

Fantastic Turkish food! Clearly popular with a full house. Excellent apps (cold mixer plate) and a tasty pasta/ dumpling dish. Order the cucumber martini. Reasonable prices with big portions. Okay ambience. Go for the food!

The food was very good. I had a beef kebab, which came with rice and salad. Everything was cooked really well. I tasted my daughter‘s lentil soup and found it to be very good as well. Generous portion, as too. I definitely recommend this restaurant. The food is not exquisite or exotic. But it’s a good place for a famiiar, comfort meal that is well done.

I dined at Deniz with another family (8 of us in total) prior to the Elton John concert at the nearby Barclay's Center. The menu is very similar to Persian restaurants I frequent at home in Atlanta. I shared a hummus plate and ordered chicken kebob. Service was very good and the waitstaff was very attentive and respectful of our schedule. The food was fresh and tasty.
