It is an ok restaurant but I would stick with quick bites or appetizers...entrees were not great. manage expectations and you will be fine.

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!

This was our first time here. We needed a pleasant restaurant that was close to the Barclay's Center. This was perfect. Food was excellent. I would definitely come back for another dinner.

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.

My husband and I went here before a concert at Barclays Center . The lamb gyro platter was fantastic and they are large size platters. I had the shrimp kebabs and they were also excellent. The service was impeccable . Would definitely go back !

Food was delicious, fresh and well prepared. The grilled whole branzino was perfectly cooked and came with rice and a salad. The cold mixed appetizer platter was delicious. Every meze was fresh and had a unique, special flavor and texture. Sunday evening family gathering. Conversations across the table easily heard. The food was enjoyed by all.
